Edmonton, Alberta(Newsfile Corp. - June 14, 2019) - *Benchmark Metals Inc.*
(TSXV: BNCH) (OTCQB: CYRTF) (WKN: A2JM2X) (the "*Company*" or "*Benchmark*")
is pleased to provide drilling plans and historical results at the Amethyst
Gold Breccia Zone (AGB), situated within the regional Lawyers Trend. Selected
historical high-grade drilling intersected *108.36 g/t gold* and *911.2 g/t
silver* over *7 metres (*DDH81AS43) core length and *6.96 g/t gold* and
*254.70 g/t silver* over *57.9 metres *(DDH82AS16) core length. The Lawyers
Project is situated in the Stikine Terrane of northern British Columbia,
Canada, and falls within the prolific, mineral endowed 'Golden Horseshoe'
(see May 30 news release [1]).

Selected historical drilling intercepts and trench results at the AGB zone

High-grade drilling intercepts:

? DDH81AS43* intersected *108.36 g/t gold* and *911.20 g/t silver* over *7
metres*; and

? DDH85AU17-2* intersected *26.9 g/t gold* and *220.08 g/t silver* over *12

High-grade, long drilling intercepts:

? DDH82AS16* intersected *6.96 g/t gold* and *254.70 g/t silver* over *57.9

? DDH82AS17* intersected *4.06 g/t gold* and *409.06 g/t silver* over *40.9
metres*; and

Bulk tonnage drilling intercepts (see Figure 2 Section Map):

? DDH82AS14* intersected *2.27 g/t gold* and *238.96 g/t silver* over *25.7

? DDH82AU16* intersected *3.78 g/t gold* and *82.4 g/t silver* over *35

? DDH80-18 intersected *2.02 g/t gold* and *123.77 g/t silver *over *30

_*The AGB Zone was mined between 1989-1992 and the areas where these
intercepts occur may have been mined._

Selected Trench Channel Sample Composites:

? *5.12 g/t gold* and *20.79 g/t silver* over *27.03 metres*

The historical results presented above, including those recently reported
(see May 31 [2] and June 4 [3] news release) and displayed on Figure 2 show
that within the region of historical production the mineralization remains
open at depth and along strike, with high-grade historical intercepts from
the deepest drill hole of this section returning *3.78 g/t gold* and *82.4
g/t silver* over *35 metres* core length. Based on limited information from
historical mine level plans and ore block models, the historical workings
extend for 230m along strike and 200m depth from surface. However, drilling
and mineralization extend beyond this to the south, for a total strike length
of 400m, suggesting there is potential for additional infill drilling and
resource expansion.

Additionally, mineralization was intersected in DDH80-18 returning 2.2 g/t
gold and 123.89 g/t silver over 30 metres core length along a parallel
mineralized structure occurring to the east of the main AGB zone, beyond the
majority of the historical drilling, and beyond the footprint of the
historically mined area.

The surface expression of the mineralized system can be traced to the north,
south, and east, beyond the existing drilling, defined by large gold-in-soil
anomalies, selective rock grab samples up to 22.20 g/t gold and 80.90 g/t
silver, and selected composite trench channel sample results up to 5.13 g/t
gold and 20.79 g/t silver over 27.03 metres. These results are situated
within a zone of pervasive potassic alteration resulting in a large, +1 km2
radiometric anomaly that is coincident with the known mineralization. The
anomaly continues to the north and to the south of AGB, across the valley
towards Dukes Ridge and Phoenix zones and remains untested.

The 2019 drilling program for the AGB Zone will begin by focusing on step-out
and deeper drilling targeting mineralization where the geochemistry, potassic
alteration and geophysical anomalies indicate a total signature length of
+500 metres (see Figure #1). In addition, the limited historical drilling to
the east of the main zone, as well as a large historic soil anomaly to the
east, suggest there is potential for a significant parallel lode.

A historical estimate from Wright (1985) defined a proven reserve at AGB of
452,600 tonnes grading 8.321 g/t Au and 263.5 g/t Ag, with limited production
occurring between 1989-1992. The potential quantity and grade stated above
constitutes a historical estimate, parts of which have been mined, and is not
to be relied upon. A qualified person has not completed sufficient work to
classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources or mineral
reserves, and therefore Benchmark is not treating the historical estimate as
current mineral resources or mineral reserves.
