BonTerra's infill sampling results lead to wider gold intercepts at Eastern Extension, confirm continuity

BonTerra Resources (CVE:BTR) announced Wednesday results from its infill sampling program on its Eastern Extension property in Quebec, leading to wider gold intercepts than originally disclosed in the early days of the drill program.

The company said the infill program involved sampling selected veins and segments of drill holes not yet sampled, which has led to the discovery of wider gold intercepts than initially released by BonTerra since November 2010.

BonTerra is now targeting all veins due to gold being discovered in all vein types and not only the smoked quartz veins, as originally thought, it said. Additional results of the infill sampling and recently completed drill holes will be released as they become available.

Today, the company said that the intercept from hole BA-10-02, for example, which was initially released by the company in November last year, was widened from 7.73 metres wide to a zone 22 metres wide assaying 7.54 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold.

In hole BA-10-03, two high grade gold zones were discovered in 2010, but the lower zone has since expanded from six metres to 26 metres in width, grading 3.72 g/t gold. BA-10-08 saw one of its gold zone widen significantly from seven metres in length to 17.5 metres grading 6.24 g/t gold.

Meanwhile, the gold intercept from hole BAS-10-06, which was originally released by the company in February, widened from roughly ten metres to a whopping 75.5 metres, assaying 0.82 g/t gold.

In addition, though the original drill intercept in hole BA-10-01 was not changed, a second gold zone has been defined, with the hole returning 22.05 metres of 0.98 g/t gold, including 0.71 metres at 18.95 g/t gold. 

"It is great to see the infill sampling program pay off with expanded widths for some of our key gold intercepts in the early days of the drill program," said director Mitchell Adam.

BonTerra is a Canadian gold exploration company focused on expanding the known gold zone on its Eastern Extension property, part of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt of Quebec. BonTerra has a total of four properties in the Urban-Barry belt, all gold exploration targets.

The company's Eastern Extension, Lavoie, Urban-Barry and Anderson properties are located approximately 170 kilometres northeast of Val-d'Or and 125 kilometres southwest of Chibougamau in the Urban, Barry and Bailly townships in Québec.
