Benz Mining Corp. (ASX:BNZ) has recorded the discovery of a potential trend of over 25km of lithium mineralisation at Ruby Hill West in Canada.

The company discovered this new lithium trend after a new outcropping, spodumene-bearing lithium-cesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatite was discovered at Ruby Hill West.

Samples have confirmed the presence of high-grade lithium, with some returning as much as 5.57% Li2O.

Benz Mining Chairman, Evan Cranston said, "This is a substantial discovery for Benz's Eastman Project that, in addition to hosting a high-grade million-ounce gold resource, we have identified an emerging lithium story."
