Benz Mining Corp announces that field crews are being mobilized this week to begin the Company's first phase exploration program on the high grade Eastmain gold mine project in Quebec. Located 316 km northeast of Chibougamau, Quebec, the Eastmain gold project, including the Ruby Hill West and East concessions, totals more than 22,100 hectares of ground in the highly prospective Upper Eastmain River greenstone belt and is anchored by the past producing Eastmain gold mine. An advance team is mobilized to the Eastmain camp site to complete essential camp upgrades and clean-up in preparation for the start of a 6,000-metre drill program scheduled to begin in early September.

Prior to the start of the drill program, Benz plans to complete 110-line kilometers of Time Domain Electromagnetics ground survey and Bore Hole Electromagnetics on select drill holes which were completed in 2016 and 2017. The integration of historic exploration data with the objective of prioritizing drill targets is ongoing.

The current drill plan envisages 4,000 m-4,500 m of drilling designed to follow up past high grade exploration drill results outside of the main Eastmain gold mine area and to test new geophysical targets obtained by the geophysical surveys.

The remaining 1,500 m-2,000 m of drilling will aim to extend the three main A, B and C mineralized zones which remain open at the former producing Eastmain gold mine.

Benz entered into an option agreement with Eastmain Resources Inc., to earn a 100% interest in the former producing Eastmain Gold Mine project located 316 km northeast of Chibougamau, Quebec.
