Benton Capital Provides Update

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/17/14 -- Benton Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BTC) ("Benton" or "the Company") is pleased to inform its shareholders that as a result of recently completing and filing its corporate tax return for the 2013 fiscal tax year, its first taxation year following the spin-out plan of arrangement, it was able to apply for substantial capital loss carry backs to its 2011 taxation year. As a result, the Company has received $904,208 from the CRA related to these carry backs. These recoverable taxes have been accrued for in its December 31, 2013 quarter end and were subsequently received in January 2014.

The Company currently has approximately $1.63 million in cash. In addition to the cash, the Company currently holds 61,000,000 shares (approximately 41%) of Coro Mining Corp. ("Coro"), an investment worth approximately $7.32 million (based on the January 15, 2014 closing market price of $0.12 per Coro share), resulting in an approximate net asset value of approximately $9 million but a market capitalization of only approximately $3.8 million (based on Benton's closing price on January 15, 2014 of $0.05 per share). The Company also holds 1,566,623 warrants of Coro exercisable at $0.15 for a period of three years. In addition, Benton holds no debt and has a very low burn rate. Benton also holds the Goodchild-PGM-Copper-Nickel project located less than 4km from Stillwater's Marathon Copper-PGM deposit which is currently under development near Marathon, Ontario. Management continues to look for undervalued opportunities for its shareholders in addition to its strategic holding in Coro and is looking forward to Coro's continued success in Chile that will increase value to Benton shareholders.

Highlights of Coro's assets are listed below.
