Benz Mining: Copper Sulphide Mineralisation at Michel, 5km along strike from Eastmain

Jul 4, 2022

Benz Mining Corp. is reporting the observation of chalcopyrite (a copper bearing sulphide) mineralisation associated with quartz veining in the drilling recently completed at the Michel prospect, 5km to the northwest of the Eastmain Mine, along strike from the mine and within the Upper Eastmain Greenstone Belt .

CEO, Xavier Braud, commented: 

"After the successful 2021 drill program identified substantial mineralisation around the existing resource, we used the 2022 drill program to scout out regional targets whilst we waited for assay results. Drilling our identified EM conductors at Michel has thrown up a nice surprise with the discovery of strong chalcopyrite mineralisation with quartz veins and alteration. We look forward to reporting the analytical results when they are available. 

"We, at Benz, continue with our strategy of delivering value from discovery of all commodities the Upper Eastmain Greenstone Belt has to offer. We now have gold, lithium, copper, and we have not yet started exploring for nickel and other base metals, which we know can be present in Archean Greenstone Belts."
