THUNDER BAY, ON, July 7 /CNW/ - Benton Resources Corp. ("Benton" or the
"Company") is pleased to announce that the management of Benton has mobilized
to the Rim project to evaluate multiple conductors identified by a recently
flown airborne geophysical survey completed by Geotech Ltd. ("Geotech") over
the property. The property is located In Labrador approximately 100km south of
the Voisey's Bay nickel deposit and adjacent to Donner Minerals South Voiseys
project where past exploration has identified high grade nickel in drilling.
The report supplied by Geotech is a logistical report covering the 1863
line-kilometre survey that covers most of the property. The remainder has been
covered by previous airborne surveys that are available in the public domain
and will be integrated with the new survey into one compilation effort. The
magnetic data exhibits numerous structures that crosscut the property in
northeast, northwest and east-west orientations. A 6km by 4km area to the
southwest portion of the property is of particular interest due to the
convergence of the various structures coincident with the most intense
conductive responses. The preliminary airborne EM profile and total magnetic
field maps can be viewed at the Company's website (www.bentonresources.ca).
The efforts of the first phase exploration will concentrate on
identifying favourable geology coincident with airborne conductors. Result
from the program will be released when they are received and compiled.
Clinton Barr (P.Geo.), V.P. Exploration for Benton Resources Corp., is
the qualified person responsible for this release.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Benton Resources Corp.
