Benton provides correction to press release



    THUNDER BAY, ON, April 26 /CNW/ - Benton Resources Corp. ("Benton" or the
"Company") would like to provide a correction to the recent press release
issued this morning. The gold (Au), platinum (Pt), and palladium (Pd) numbers
for drill holes BO-07-23 to BO-07-25 inclusive stated the individual result in
parts per billion (ppb) when they should have been stated in grams per tonne
(gpt). However, the values for the total precious metals (TPM = Au+Pt+Pd) were
correctly listed in grams per tonne. The table below lists the corrected
values for the three drill holes and Benton apologizes for any inconvenience
this may have caused.
