Benton Capital Provides Update on El Desesperado Project, Chile; Shares Dip 8% Late Morning


Benton Capital Corp. (BTC.V) announced today that Coro Mining Corp. (COP.TO) has completed surface exploration and an 8 hole 2,290m reverse circulation ( RC ) drilling program at Coro's El Desesperado copper project, located 7 km NW of the city of Calama in the II Region of Chile, and immediately west of Codelco's Toki Cluster deposits.

A total of 5 RC holes (1,544m) were completed in the El D Norte target and 3 RC holes (746m) in the El D Sur. However, several holes did not reach their planned 400m depths due to drilling difficulties caused by the presence of water.

Coro Mining is unchanged at 30 cents.
