Benchmark Metals Inc. (BNCH:TSX.V; CYRTF:OTCQB) announced in a news release the first results from the 2019 campaign of drilling in the Phoenix zone on the Lawyers property in British Columbia.

So far this year, Benchmark drilled three holes in the Phoenix zone. Assays follow for one hole and are pending for the other two holes.

Hole 19PXDD001 returned 132.5 grams per ton (132.5 g/t) gold and 8,560 g/t silver over a 0.9 meter (0.9m) core length within a broader interval of 46.9 g/t gold and 3,055.6 g/t silver over a 2.87m core length.

Drill results to date extended the Phoenix zone from surface to about a 150m depth. "Anomalous geochemistry and geophysics indicate that this zone could be extended to over 1 kilometer in total length with additional drilling, which we will pursue in the weeks to come," CEO John Williamson said in the release.

Benchmark expects to drill into the second week of October and release results as they become available.
