Benton Resources Inc. (BEX.V) announced an update for the ongoing exploration program at their Elizabeth Anne project. A combined aeromagnetic and radiometric survey has been completed over the project area that included 650 line-kilometres at 50 metre spacing. Ongoing surface sampling has identified at least six areas of gold and silver mineralization, Benton said. It added that most encouraging is new high grade gold and silver mineralization along the southern margin of the Rascal Zone where selective grab samples returned up to 48.1 gram per tonne (gpt) gold (Au) with 4110 gpt silver (Ag).

However, shares are down 1 cent to 14 cents in early trade.
