BonTerra drills high grade gold at Eastern Extension

BonTerra Resources (CVE:BTR) announced Thursday high grade gold assays from an additional four drill holes on the Eastern Extension gold project, located 170 kilometres northeast of Val-d'Or, Quebec.

Highlights include 8.95 grams per tonne (g/t) gold over 6.2 metres in drill hole BA-11-23, including 42.6 g/t gold over 1.3 metres; 6.44 g/t gold over 1.5 metres, including 13.0 g/t over 0.70 metres in drill hole BA-11-16; and 5.84 g/t gold over 3.0 metres, including 9.68 g/t gold over 1.5 metres in hole BA-11-17.

Visible gold flecks were observed in two samples taken from drill hole BA-11-23, including 15 visible specks in the 42.6 g/t grade sample, said the company.

"BonTerra is pleased to see the gold zones be proven larger with additional drilling," said president Mitchell Adam.

"Intercepting veins bearing visible gold is rewarding and a result of the hard work by our geological team.

"BonTerra continues drilling with the intent of conducting the first ever NI 43-101 compliant resource calculation on the property."

The Canadian gold explorer, which is based in Vancouver, B.C., has drilled 32 holes on the property to date, and is awaiting the assay results from an additional three drill holes to expand the peninsula zone, previously assayed to contain 14.0 metres of 8.01 g/t gold, including 3.33 metres of 27.3 g/t gold in drill hole BA-11-05, as reported in February.
