BonTerra Resources (BTR: TSX-V; FSX: 9BR) said Tuesday that it received drill results from two holes at its Eastern Extension property in Quebec, acheiving intercepts as high as 77.8g/t gold.
Hole BA-10-01 returned 13.5 metres at 17.06g/t gold, while BA-10-02 assayed a drill intercept of 7.73 metres at 21.24g/t gold, including one sample of one metre long which returned a gold grade of 77.8g/t.
To date, the holes drilled on the Eastern Extension property have intercepted zones of smoky quartz veins mineralized with sulphides, the company said.
"We are excited to intercept two high grade drill intercepts approximately 20 metres apart in our ongoing drill program. This cements BonTerra as a significant player in the eastern Abitibi of Quebec," said president Mitchell Adam.
BonTerra is currently drilling the fourth hole on the Eastern Extension property, and is planning on constructing a winter camp for the second phase drill program at the site.
The Eastern Extension property is located approximately 170 km northeast of Val-d'Or and 125 km southwest of Chibougamau in the Barry and Bailly townships in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt.
BonTerra has an option to earn 100% of the Eastern Extension property subject to a 2% NSR.
