The Lawyers project is located in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle and currently consists of five mineralized zones, which are to be the focus of resource definition and expansion drilling in 2020, along with eight further prospects.

This year, Benchmark has expanded its drilling program to up to 100,000 metres in anticipation of a resource estimate and preliminary economic assessment expected in the first quarter and 2Q next year, respectively. A 200,000 metre drill program is in the works for 2021 ahead of a planned feasibility study expected in 2022.

Under the term sheet, each unit consists of one share and one-half of one warrant exercisable at C$1.80 per share for a two-year period.

Shares and warrants comprising the units, and the non-transferable compensation warrants issued to the agents in connection with the offering, are subject to a hold period until January 26, 2021.

Sprott Capital Partners LP is acting as the lead agent in conjunction with Clarus Securities Inc and PI Financial Corp.
