4. There continues to be no shortage of capital for hot B.C. exploration plays…Benchmark Metals (BNCH, TSX-V) is raising $5 million at 45 cents per share (above market) as announced this morning…this is a strong hard dollar PP that includes only half a warrant at 55 cents, good for 2 years…Benchmark’s Lawyers Project, a past producer, is situated in north-central B.C.’s Stikine terrane where magmatic events provided a source for mineralizing porphyry and epithermal systems…these mineralizing events form an arch of Gold and polymetallic deposits around the Bowser basin, from Red Chris through the Eskay Camp to the Stewart district, which Benchmark is referring to as the Golden Horseshoe”…a week ago, Benchmark released further details on the historic Amethyst breccia zone (AGB zone), an area just 2 km from the main resource expansion area of the Lawyers Project that remains under-explored…historic drill intercepts from AGB include 260 g/t Au and 3,320 g/t Ag over 3 m, and 12.7 g/t Au and 143 g/t Ag over 28 m…Benchmark collected high-grade rock samples from this area last year up to 22.2 g/t Au and 1,265 g/t Ag…BNCH gapped up at the open this morning and is 3 cents higher at 37 cents as of 7:00 am Pacific

6. Alamos Gold (AGI, TSX) continues to intersect high-grade mineralization in a new area of focus at its Island Gold mine in northeast Ontario…this previously untested area between the Eastern and Western Extensions represents a 500-m gap between Inferred mineral resource blocks and is only 1,000 m from surface…highlights include 102.7 g/t Au over 3.94 m (MH1805, true width) and 31.7 g/t over 2.95 m (MH1804, true width)…all 5 drill holes in this area have intersected ore-grade mineralization…meanwhile, at the Main Extension, Alamos has cut 24.1 g/t Au over 6.3 m (MH1706) and 6 g/t over 10 m (MH1306), also true width…high-grade mineralization has been extended over 1,000 m east of the current mine workings and remains open along strike to the east and both up and down plunge…“Island Gold continues to be a tremendous success story on all fronts,” stated John McCluskey, President and CEO.  “We just received the Phase II expansion permit this past month and ongoing exploration success continues to support strong potential for additional growth in mineral reserves and resources and a Phase III expansion of the operation.  We’re extending high-grade mineralization across all three areas of focus and see excellent potential within the recently discovered area between the Main and Eastern Extensions where we are continuing to close the gap between high-grade resources”AGI is off 17 cents at $6.72 on this morning’s mild correction in Gold prices…
