Benz Mining: Ruby Hill West Discovery Returns 26.4m At 1.01% Li2O From 7.4M Including 3.7m At 2.7% Li2O

Aug 2, 2022

Benz Mining Corp. has provided an update on its lithium exploration activities. Assays for the 6 holes drilled in April 2022 at Ruby Hill West as part of Benz's maiden lithium drilling have been received and confirm thick high-grade pegmatite as well as the presence of multiple dykes system in the area.

CEO, Xavier Braud, commented: 

"These results prove that the Ruby Hill West pegmatite we drilled this year carries both grade and thickness. We are currently in the field at Ruby Hill West and Windy Mountain identifying more pegmatite outcrops and stripping the outcrops near last winter's drilling. 

"We have seen some pretty spectacular spodumene mineralisation in outcrop near RHW22-006 collar with single spodumene crystals up to 50cm long. 

"This region has been underexplored and we believe we can find more of those lithium bearing pegmatites, turning Ruby Hill West into a lithium camp for the benefit of Benz shareholders.

"Every campaign we have conducted has been successful and returned high grade gold and now high-grade lithium mineralisation. We will keep exploring and making discoveries in the Upper Eastmain Greenstone Belt, a new frontier area that Benz is bringing to the world's attention.

"Finding core from holes drilled in 2008 which has unsampled pegmatites is a welcome discovery. This pegmatite shows high rubidium and niobium content on a hand held XRF indicating probable fertility. Sometimes, discoveries are made in the core yard unearthing historical core and looking at it with a fresh eye."
