Benton Resources Corp. (BTC) Receives Confirmation From Partner on Kingurutik Lake Copper-Nickel-Cobalt Project in Labrador

THUNDER BAY, ON--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - Benton Resources Corp. ("Benton") (TSX-V: BTC) is pleased to report that Benton has been notified by its partner Teck Cominco Limited ("Teck Cominco") that under the Kingurutik Lake (previously King Lake) participation agreement Teck Cominco has elected to exercise its right to earn a further 10% interest in the project, thereby increasing its interest to 60%, by spending the next $4 million in exploration on the project.

Benton management believes that Teck Cominco's decision continues to support the fact that the project is an exceptional Cu-Ni-Co exploration project that has the possibility to host a large magmatic Cu, Ni and Co type deposit at Kingurutik Lake where grab sample results assayed up to 6.0% Cu, 1.18% Ni and 0.26% Co associated with conductive zones on the large property. The target zones outlined by the airborne survey have been labeled alphabetically A through V and sample results for all targets, along with a location map, have been posted on Benton's Web site at www.bentonresources.ca.

Clinton Barr (P.Geo.), V.P. Exploration for Benton Resources Corp., is the qualified person responsible for this release.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Benton Resources Corp.
