Benchmark Drills 8.20 Metres of 49.38 g/t Gold Equivalent Within 177.20 Metres of 3.21 g/t Gold Equivalent at the Cliff Creek Deposit

Edmonton, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – January 28, 2022) – Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSXV: BNCH) (OTCQX: BNCHF) (WKN: A2JM2X) (the "Company" or "Benchmark")…

Edmonton, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – January 28, 2022) – Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSXV: BNCH) (OTCQX: BNCHF) (WKN: A2JM2X) (the “Company” or “Benchmark“) – is pleased to announce new results from 9 infill and expansion drill holes from the southern portion of the Cliff Creek deposit area (Cliff Creek South – CCS). Drilling has intersected broad zones of bulk-tonnage and high-grade mineralization including 177.20 metres (m) core length of 1.73 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 117.87 g/t silver or 3.21 g/t gold equivalent (AuEq)* with 8.20 m of 23.83 g/t gold and 2044.15 g/t silver or 49.38 g/t AuEq in drill hole 21CCDD061 (Figure 1). These new drill results continue to test and expand beyond the limits of the 2021 modelled pit shell and demonstrate strong continuity of mineralization from surface to over 450 vertical metres depth (Figure 2). Expansion potential at CCS remains open with the potential for open-pit resources at surface as well as high-grade material at depth for underground mining. Benchmark’s flagship Lawyers Gold-Silver Project is located within a road-accessible region of the prolific Golden Horseshoe area of north-central British Columbia, Canada.

John Williamson, CEO, commented, “Benchmark has grown the Cliff Creek South area from a new gold-silver discovery at surface that now extends to 450 metres depth. The entire Cliff Creek Deposit remains open at depth with significant high-grade material. Expansion and infill drilling at the south end of the Cliff Creek Deposit continues to generate significant, long intersections of gold-silver mineralization. Drilling is providing continuity and extending gold-silver mineralization to greater depths. The CCS area is providing optionality for open pit mining and/or underground mining that holds bulk tonnage high-grade gold and silver material at depth.”


  • Delivered strong results along the limits of the 2021 $1600 modelled pit shell including 112.09 m core length of 1.21 g/t gold and 30.70 g/t silver or 1.60 AuEq with 44.80 m of 2.05 g/t gold and 18.07 g/t silver or 2.28 g/t AuEq in drill hole 21CCDD044; and 95.55 m core length of 1.30 g/t gold and 47.89 g/t silver or 1.90 g/t AuEq with 21.00 m of 4.04 g/t gold and 84.12 g/t silver or 5.09 g/t AuEq in drill hole 21CCDD049, and;
  • Excellent infill and expansion drilling results that continue to confirm the continuity of this robust mineralizing system along-strike and at-depth beyond the 2021 modelled pit shell (Table 1), and;
  • Potentially reducing the strip ratio by continuing to yield high-grade material with enveloping broad and high-grade bulk-tonnage material.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information

Certain information contained in this news release, constitutes forward-looking information within the meaning of Canadian securities laws (“forward-looking statements”). All statements in this news release, other than statements of historical fact, which address events, results, outcomes or developments that Marathon expects to occur are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include statements that are predictive in nature, depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, or include words such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “plans”, “believes”, “estimates”, “considers”, “intends”, “targets”, or negative versions thereof and other similar expressions, or future or conditional verbs such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “would” and “could”. We provide forward- looking statements for the purpose of conveying information about our current expectations and plans relating to the future, and readers are cautioned that such statements may not be appropriate for other purposes. More particularly and without restriction, this news release contains forward-looking information, including statements as to management’s expectations with respect to, among other things, the matters and activities contemplated in this news release.

Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions and accordingly, actual results and future events could differ materially from those expressed or implied in such statements. You are hence cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward- looking statements. In respect of the forward-looking statements concerning the interpretation of exploration results and the impact on the Project’s mineral resource estimate, the Company has provided such statements in reliance on certain assumptions it believes are reasonable at this time, including assumptions as to the continuity of mineralization between drill holes. A mineral resource that is classified as “inferred” or “indicated” has a great amount of uncertainty as to its existence and economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that any or part of an “indicated mineral resource” or “inferred mineral resource” will ever be upgraded to a higher category of mineral resource. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into proven and probable mineral reserves.

By its nature, this information is subject to inherent risks and uncertainties that may be general or specific and which give rise to the possibility that expectations, forecasts, predictions, projections or conclusions will not prove to be accurate, that assumptions may not be correct and that objectives, strategic goals and priorities will not be achieved. Factors that could cause future results or events to differ materially from current expectations expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements include risks and uncertainties relating to the interpretation of drill results, the geology, grade and continuity of mineral deposits and conclusions of economic evaluations; uncertainty as to estimation of mineral resources; inaccurate geological and metallurgical assumptions (including with respect to the size, grade and recoverability of mineral resources); the potential for delays or changes in plans in exploration or development projects or capital expenditures, or the completion of feasibility studies due to changes in logistical, technical or other factors; the possibility that future exploration, development, construction or mining results

will not be consistent with the Company’s expectations; risks related to the ability of the current exploration program to identify and expand mineral resources; risks relating to possible variations in grade, planned mining dilution and ore loss, or recovery rates and changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; operational mining and development risks, including risks related to accidents, equipment breakdowns, labour disputes (including work stoppages and strikes) or other unanticipated difficulties with or interruptions in exploration and development; risks related to the inherent uncertainty of production and cost estimates and the potential for unexpected costs and expenses; risks related to commodity and power prices, foreign exchange rate fluctuations and changes in interest rates; the uncertainty of profitability based upon the cyclical nature of the mining industry; risks related to failure to obtain adequate financing on a timely basis and on acceptable terms or delays in obtaining governmental or other stakeholder approvals or in the completion of development or construction activities; risks related to environmental regulation and liability, government regulation and permitting; risks relating to the Company’s ability to attract and retain skilled staff; risks relating to the timing of the receipt of regulatory and governmental approvals for continued operations and future development projects; political and regulatory risks associated with mining and exploration; risks relating to the potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company and the mining industry; changes in general economic conditions or conditions in the financial markets; and other risks described in Marathon’s documents filed with Canadian securities regulatory authorities, including the Amended and Restated Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2020.

You can find further information with respect to these and other risks in Marathon’s Amended and Restated Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2020 and other filings made with Canadian securities regulatory authorities available at Other than as specifically required by law, Marathon undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, whether as a result of new information, future events or results otherwise.
