ROYAL ROADS & BENTON AWARD DRILLING CONTRACT TO DRILL NEW COPPER

SULPHIDE ZONE ON LONG RANGE JOINT VENTURE, NEWFOUNDLAND

Royal Roads Corp. (RRO-TSX-V)

("Royal Roads") and Benton Resources Corp

. (BTC-TSX-V)

(“Benton”) are pleased to announce awarding a drill contract to commence diamond drilling of the

recently discovered copper sulphide zone on the Long Range Joint Venture property in central

Newfoundland. The contract has been awarded to Logan Drilling of Stewiacke, Nova Scotia and is

expected to commence the week of October 12, 2009. The program is expected to include two drill holes

designed to test a 400 to 600 metre long conductive geophysical anomaly defined by VTEM airborne

geophysical surveys completed by Geotech Ltd. in 2008.

On September 14, 2009, Royal Roads and Benton announced prospecting adjacent to this conductive

anomaly had discovered a copper mineralized zone consisting of disseminated to locally banded massive

sulphides. Based on limited exposure, this zone is estimated to be between 20 and 30 metres thick. The

zone is peripheral to the conductive anomaly’s axis which lies beneath a lake. Although bedrock exposure

along the lake shore is limited, 14 variably oxidized bedrock grab samples were taken, with six of the

samples returning assays of greater than 0.20% copper, with a high value of 1.77% copper.

Also on September 14, 2009, Royal Roads and Benton announced other conductive anomalies examined

by prospecting elsewhere on the property had returned encouraging results favourable for discovery of

nickel-copper magmatic sulphides as well as polymetallic volcanogenic massive sulphides. Among these

are anomalies, where grab samples collected from float believed to be locally derived, returned assays up

to 0.75% nickel and 0.64% copper. A trenching program is currently in progress to test several of these

areas and is expected to be completed within the coming weeks.

The Long Range project is a 50/50 joint venture between Royal Roads and Benton with Royal Roads as

the operator. The property is subject to net smelter royalties of up to 2%, of which 1% can be purchased

for $1 million. Portions of the property are also subject to underlying option agreements requiring cash

payments and share issuances for the joint venture to earn a 100% interest. The project was acquired to

explore for magmatic nickel-copper sulphide deposits within a previously unexplored area recently

recognized to be prospective for magmatic sulphide deposits. The project is well situated with ready

access to nearby roads, power and port facilities.
