Jun. 9, 2011 (Marketwire Canada) --
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BTR)(FRANKFURT:9BR) (the "Company", "BonTerra") is currently awaiting assays for four (4) deep drill holes on the Eastern Extension Gold Project (the "Property"). The deep holes were drilled to extend the Peninsula Zone. The Peninsula Zone had assay intercepts earlier in the year; drill hole highlights from BA05 returned 14.00 metres of 8.01 grams/tonne ("g/t") gold including 3.33 metres of 27.60 g/t gold. Also, drill hole BA06 assayed 13.00 metres of 7.00 g/t gold including 4.00 metres of 17.02 g/t gold, as disclosed in a news release dated February 17, 2011.
The four (4) deep holes were drilled to maximize the tonnage by expanding the mineralized envelope. It is the goal of the Company to define as many tonnes as possible before running the resource calculation for the property. Core logs are described as sighting mineralized smoky quartz-tourmaline veins in these holes. This is the ultimate target environment for gold in the area.
Mitchell Adam, President, states, "We are encouraged with the success ratio on our assays and feel the deeper holes will assist Geologica Inc. with a broader scope and knowledge in establishing an inferred resource calculation this summer."
The Company continues to employ a full quality assurance and quality control (QAQC) system for every batch of samples submitted to the lab. The QAQC samples include a standard, duplicate and blank. Geologica Inc. of Val-d'Or, Québec is responsible for overseeing the drill and sampling program on behalf of the Company.
The Eastern Extension property is located approximately 170 km NE of Val-d'Or and 125 km SW of Chibougamau in the Barry and Bailly townships in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, Québec. Neighboring companies in the region are Metanor, Amseco, Beaufield, Eagle Hill, Glen Eagle, Urbana and Freewest, Murgor and Noront. The Company has an option to earn 100% of the Eastern Extension property subject to a 2% NSR.
