BonTerra Resources (TSX-V: BTR; FSE: 9BR) said Wednesday that it has received further results from two drill holes on its Eastern Extension property in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Québec, which have extended the known mineralized gold zone at the site.
Hole BA-10-08 assayed 14.84 g/t gold over 7 metres, with the highest sample grading 31.20 g/t. Meanwhile, BA-10-09 intersected 4.71 g/t gold over 11.75 metres, with the highest sample being 41.20 g/t. Both holes extend the known strike of the gold zone, said the company.
To date, the company has drilled nine holes on the Eastern Extension property for a total of 1358.35 metres. Eight of these holes have intercepted gold zones present in quartz veins, and mineralized with sulphides, BonTerra said.
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.
BonTerra's Urban-Barry property is situated just west of Eastern Extension. The company has an option to earn 100% of the Eastern Extension property, subject to a 2% NSR.
Further drilling at the site is planned with the sole goal of extending the known gold zone.
