VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. (CSE: BNN) (OTCBB: BNNHF) (“BHM” or the “Company”)Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. is pleased to announce new assay results from the Benjamin Hill property showcasing high grade mineralization on the western side of the Sonora Gold concession. Recent analytical results from a hereto unsampled skarn outcrop between mineralized vein structures assayed up to 15.9 g/t Au. Additional samples assayed up to 1.7 g/t Au were collected to the east on a newly discovered mineralized structure and returned silver values that exceeded detection limits of 200 g/t. Previous samples taken around the midpoint of the vein system have assayed as high as 31.4 g/t Au. The Caracahui mineralized vein structures, which lie adjacent to the historical Caracahui mine, can be traced for over 3 km strike length. A swarm of mineralized vein structures located west of the main vein structure extends over 3.6 km in length with up to 800m in width of potential mineralized area. (Figure 1 & 2 and Table 1 & 2).
Sergio Trelles-Monge, Special Geological Advisor in Mexico for Benjamin Mining Corp. states: “Caracahui is the central part of our property, and we’re always happy to see the expansion of the widths and lengths of disseminated and concentrated mineralization. Work is still taking place to produce more exploration targets, and thanks to the great work of our field team, magnificent results like the recent assays have been achieved. With this expansion to one of our most interesting areas the mineral potential at depth of this vein system is getting more exciting and is an obvious target for drill testing. The economic value of the disseminated mineralization in the area between well-defined structures has also become an important study subject in extending the known mineralization of the Caracahui area.”

Quality Assurance/Quality Control
All rock samples were selected by a BHM geologist. Sample tags were placed into each bag before being sealed and stored at the company field office in a secure area and were later transported by company truck directly to the Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories (BVM) in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. At the laboratory, the samples were dried, crushed and pulverized with the pulps being sent airfreight for analysis to BVM in Vancouver, B.C. for 45-element ICP-MS analysis after modified 4-acid aqua regia digestion. Gold assays are determined by 30-gram fire assay fusion with an ICP-ES finish. Copper assays that initially ran above 10,000ppm were rerun using ICP-ES analysis to obtain accurate assay values.
Both Hermosillo and Vancouver BVM facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited. Laboratory control samples comprising certified reference samples, duplicates and blank samples were inserted by the laboratory into the sample stream and analyzed as part of the quality assurance/quality control protocol.
