Benjamin Hill Continues to Discover High-Grade Gold Mineralization on the Sonora Copper and Saguro Structures

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sep 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. /zigman2/quotes/206574740/delayed CA:BNN +6.17% /zigman2/quotes/204040706/composite BNNHF -3.88% ("BHM" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on the Sonora copper vein structure mapped over 1200 meters in length and contains highlight values of 9.6 g/t gold, 169 g/t silver, and 4.3 % copper. The vein structure is mappable over three levels of underground workings and can be traced as a high-angle mineralized body with at least 120 m known depth. (Figure. 2, 3, 4 and Table. 1)

The Saguaro vein outcrops over several kilometers including a continuous section up to 3,500 meters in length with highlight assays of up to 3.5 g/t gold, 72 g/t silver and 1.7 % copper.

Sr. Sergio A. Trelles, Special Advisor, states: "We see strong economic potential in the �??�??Sonora Copper area, based on the observed precious and base metal enrichment seen along the outcropping mineralized structures. The positive results are encouraging us to go on with exploration and evaluation activities".

Historically, mineralized structures have been mined by access made through the La Cascabel, Guadalupe and Sonora Copper adits. There are additional sublevels of adits and stopes yet to be mapped and sampled pending safety evaluations.

Benjamin Hill is currently integrating technical information for the modeling of rock blocks, veins, and historic adits and stopes to develop a safety first mine rehabilitation plan. The objective is to gain access to yet unassessed sublevels in these historic mines with the goal of underground diamond drilling on the mineralized structures (Figure 1.).
