Thus, IF the intended meaning of "These benefits are of important values" is that there are benefits associated with certain important values, and some of those benefits are present (perhaps on a list), the sentence works.
That's why I say we need context.
Hi, David! How are you?
Look at the following sentence (excerpted from OLAD):
The arrival of canals was of great value to many industries.
Can we use "values" here? Or the sentence has a specific context in which we cannot use the countable, plural noun?
