BonTerra widens gold intercepts in previous hole at Eastern Extension

BonTerra widens gold intercepts in previous hole at Eastern Extension

Vancouver-based junior explorer BonTerra Resources (CVE:BTR) said on Friday that infill drilling has widened pre-existing zones of high grade gold at its flagship Eastern Extension property.

The property rests in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt and is located just to the east of the Urban-Barry property, in Quebec.

The company said infill sampling on secondary vein systems and zones of interest in hole BA-10-08, for which original results were disclosed in January, has led to a wider gold intercept.

All of the infill samples have been included into the 3D model, BonTerra said, and are being added into the gold resource calculation.

The wider primary intercepts include 6.24 grams per tonne (g/t) gold at 17.50 metres and 16.75 g/t of gold at six metres. Additional intercepts from the hole returned 21.09 g/t of gold at 3 metres, 31.20 g/t of gold at one metre, as well as 30.50 g/t of gold at one metre.

The original intersections from the hole spanned lengths from one to seven metres.

Company president, Mitchell Adam, said: "Our infill sampling program is leading to BonTerra discovering gold not only in the smoky quartz veins but in the secondary veins too."

"BonTerra is enthusiastic this is paying dividends by widening pre-existing zones of high grade gold. Every mineralized vein has the potential to add to the number of ounces we are currently working toward defining in Quebec."

Drill BA-10-08 was first drilled to the west of the series of initial five drill holes. This was due to the "impressive presence", the company said, of three distinct parallel gold zones in the hole, which led BonTerra to drill further to the southwest still, where additional drill holes discovered further high grade gold in hole BA-11-06.

BonTerra named this new gold trap the Peninsula Zone.

The Vancouver-based mineral explorer mainly acquires and explores natural resource properties in North America. BonTerra has a total of four properties in the Urban-Barry belt, all gold exploration targets.
