Benjamin Hill files 43-101 technical report for the Benjamin Hill property
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, September 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. (CSE: BNN) (OTCBB: BNNHF) (âBHMâ or the âCompanyâ) is pleased to announce that on September 14, 2021, it filed on SEDAR a NI 43-101 compliant technical report (the âTechnical Reportâ) entitled: âNI 43-101 Technical Report on the Benjamin Hill Propertyâ including the Sonora Gold and Sonora Copper Concessions in Sonora State, Mexico. The effective date of the report is July 25, 2021. The report summarizes the geological setting, mineralization and exploration activities carried out by Benjamin Hill Mining Corp on the Benjamin Hill property over the past year.
The Benjamin Hill project is home to a large hydrothermal system enriched in Au, Ag and Cu which is exposed at the surface. The mineralization occurs in the form of sets of vein systems, hydrothermal breccia, stockworks, sheet veins, skarn pendants and orogenic quartz zones, forming a geologically promising zone of more than 6 kilometers in length with a general north-south direction and a mineralization width of up to 800 meters, with a set of well-defined vein breccias with a disseminated intermediate presence of mineralization. In addition, the presence of a large hydrothermal system at the surface and the associated geotectonic characteristics are promising for a Cu-Au porphyry system at depth.
The 6000ha property is divided into eight exploration zones, six of which are currently active:
Caracahui The region has two historic mines called the Caracahui and Corralitos galleries. These galleries produced the highest gold values ââin the rock chip samples;
Caracahui North the area contains outcrop specularite veins and is home to the historic San Jorge mine which produced anomalous gold concentrations in chip samples;
Sonora Copper The area contains both the Sonoran Copper Gallery, which is the largest and most developed of all of the property’s historic mines, and two other galleries, the Cascabel and Guadalupe Galleries, which follow the same mineralized structure as the gallery. copper Sonora. The area contains another main mineralized structure in addition to the Sonoran copper vein, known as the Saguaro vein, which houses a vertical well named Las Llantas. This gallery will be explored further once the underground security measures have been initiated;
The Falsa the area contains a stockwork structure which has historically dosed high values ââof gold, silver and copper;
La Berrenda The area contains a historic mine noted by the Geological Survey of Mexico (SGM). The area also exhibited high Au and Cu values ââdetected in stream sediment samples.
Analytical results from mineralization and hydrothermal halos identified zones enriched in gold, as well as enrichment in copper, lead, zinc, silver, barium, bismuth and antimony. A stream sediment sampling program has shown that the metallic dispersion due to erosion is relatively low. The low erosive dispersion of metals facilitates the detection of in situ mineralization on the property. High concentrations of certain elements such as molybdenum, copper, gold and bismuth suggest the proximity of an undiscovered fertile pluton.
Microthermometric analyzes of mineralized rock samples have shown that mineral deposits exhibit physico-chemical characteristics of epithermal mineralization. In addition, the physicochemical parameters suggest both shallow and deep boiling; fluid mixtures within the deposits and varying degrees of exhumation and erosion, indicating the probable continuity of the hydrothermal system at depth. The distribution, mineralogy, physicochemical and physical characteristics of the mineralized structures observed on the property and the concomitant hydrothermal alteration, as well as an underlying magnetic anomaly imply that a fertile buried calc-alkaline plutonic complex greatly contributed the development of hydrothermal alteration and mineralization on the Benjamin Hill property.
The technical report recommends:
Completion of mapping and sampling in the regions of Caracahui, La Salada, Caracahui North and Sonora Copper;
Mapping and sampling of the Cascabel and Guadalupe galleries;
Target sampling for petrography and analysis of polished thin sections;
Dating studies of plutonic rocks (U-Pb ablation on zircons);
Prospecting for new geochemical targets (La Falsa, San Felix and La Berrenda);
Underground rock chip sampling on the main Sonoran copper structure (vein);
Advance most promising mineral occurrences by diamond drilling.

Greg Bronson, President states, âCompleting the technical report on the Benjamin Hill property ahead of our inaugural drilling program, which is scheduled to begin this fall, is an important step in our quest for a multi-million ounce gold deposit. The Benjamin Hill property is home to large areas of strong surface gold mineralization that extend over a continuous length of up to 6 km and can reach widths of up to 800 meters. Our work to date on the property has revealed very impressive gold values ââin this 6,000 ha property still to be drilled â,
