Benjamin Hill Intercepts 211.65 Metres of 0.46 Grams/Tonne Gold from Two Reconnaissance Diamond Drill Holes at Alotta Gold-Copper Porphyry Target in the Yukon

February 29, 2024

Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. announce assay results from the inaugural diamond drill holes that intercepted 211.65 metres of 0.46 grams/tonne gold in extensive porphyry style mineralization at the Alotta gold-copper-molybdenum target in the west-central Yukon (Table #1).

Posted intervals are core lengths, the orientation of mineralization is not known at this time.

Holes ALT-23-01 and ALT-23-02 tested the south-central portion of an induced polarization, chargeability high with coincident copper and gold in soil anomalies. The drill program is expected to recommence in May 2024 and will focus on three areas of coincident copper, molybdenum and gold in soil geochemical anomalies that indicate potential centers of porphyry mineralization.

“We are very excited to see such positive drill results from our maiden drilling campaign at Alotta. We were initially attracted to the project for the sheer size of the geochemical anomaly, and I am pleased to see that our thesis has been reinforced by our maiden drill program. Planning has commenced for follow-up drilling this summer.”

Lorne Warner, President

“This is a very encouraging result from the first two reconnaissance holes at Alotta. With a coincident gold-copper-molybdenum geochemical footprint of over four-square kilometres, Alotta has the potential to be a company-maker. I look forward to working with the Company on the follow-up drilling program this summer.”

Russell Ball, Strategic Advisor to the Company

Holes ALT-23-001 and 002
Both holes exhibited multiple intrusive phases including intrusive breccias displaying strong biotite alteration, carbonate veining and pyrrhotite, pyrite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite mineralization as interstitial clots and stringers. Figure # 1 is a cross-section of hole ALT-23-01 which includes geology and gold and copper values and the composite intervals. Table 2 provides the collar coordinates, orientation, and final depth for both holes.

About Benjamin Hill Mining Corp.
Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. is a Canadian-listed junior exploration company focused on exploring and advancing the Alotta project, a prospective porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum project located 50 km south of the Casino porphyry deposit in the unglaciated portion of the Dawson Range porphyry/epithermal belt in the Yukon Territory of Canada.

In addition, the Company holds a 20% interest in Aion Mining Corp., a company that is developing the fully permitted La Estrella coal project in Santander, Colombia. The project contains eight known seams of metallurgical and thermal coal.

Drill core sample preparation and multi-element analyses were carried out at ALS in Whitehorse, Yukon and North Vancouver, BC, respectively. Each sample was dried, fine crushed to better than 70% passing 2 mm and then a 250 g split was pulverized to better than 85% passing 75 microns. The fine fractions were analyzed for gold by fire assay fusion and inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry (Au-ICP21) and for 51 other elements using aqua regia digestion followed by inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy followed by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ME-MS41). Rigorous procedures were in place regarding sample collection, chain of custody and data entry. Certified assay standards, coarse reject duplicates and blanks were routinely inserted into the sample stream to ensure integrity of the assay process. All of the results reported have passed the QAQC screening.
