Benz Mining announces new High Grade Shoot at Eastmain

Aug 3, 2021

"We are glad to finally be able to release assay results from Eastmain, especially when they are great results. DHEM of historical holes at NW Zone had showed us many undrilled conductors," CEO, Xavier Braud said.  

Benz Mining Corp. has announced long awaited assays results for the start of its 2021 drilling campaign. Results come predominantly from NW Zone which is quickly emerging as a new high-grade lodes system and has the potential to become an integral part of the Eastmain deposit.

"We drilled them and now we know that NW Zone is mineralised and presents the exact same characteristics as A, B and C Zones and poses as a new high-grade zone of the Eastmain deposit. This first pass scout drilling is wide spaced with drilling centres 100m apart and more. We have identified mineralisation over a large 400x 400m area and, more importantly, we have clearly identified two mineralised parallel horizons, both of which are proving to be gold bearing. 

"Eastmain is delivering above expectations and our exploration methodology utilising electromagnetics to guide discoveries continues to be extremely successful. We have identified conductors over a strike length of 6km and, to date, we haven't drilled a single conductor which has not returned the right geology. Every target we drill bring more information and we are gradually unlocking the full potential of the Eastmain deposit. 

We now have over 150 DHEM conductors in the system and we are systematically drilling them. The DHEM data from NW Zone shows strong undrilled off-hole conductors near our high-grade intervals. Follow up drilling will start as soon as we increase our drilling capacity with a third rig arriving in the second half of August."
