Benton Resources Corp. (TSXV:BTC) and Buchans Minerals Corporation (TSXV:BMC) announced plans to commence drilling several base metal targets on the Long Range 50/50 joint venture property in the next few weeks.

The press release is quoted as saying:

The Range Copper prospect, where previous drilling returned an intersection of semi-massive to massive sulphides averaging 0.39% copper and 0.032% cobalt over a core length of 37.8 metres. Drilling will test the zone over a minimum strike length of 160 m, to a depth of 150 metres, as predicted from recent interpretation of geophysical data collected in 2010. It is hoped that the new holes will better characterize the grade and geometry of the zone, which is considered to have good potential to host higher base metal grades within what may be a large, zoned, sulphide body.
