BonTerra Resources Receives Drilling Permit for Eastern Extension Property

BonTerra Resources has received a permit to drill at the Eastern Extension property, which is located around 170km NE of the Val d'Or city, Quebec in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt.

BonTerra plans to drill ten holes immediately. It primarily targets the remote southwest zone and next the Peninsula and Eastern Zones. The objective of this drilling program is to significantly expand the strike to the southwest.

Recently, BonTerra has completed the induced polarity ("IP") and magnetic surveys, which showed the targets for this drilling program. The IP survey has delineated an uninterrupted low resistivity zone (less hard rock) and presence of high-grade metals, which is the main gold target on the Property. Prior to conducting the drill program on the property, BonTerra has decided to wait for the IP and magnetic results.

On attaining the permit, BonTerra will receive many other drilling opportunities. The company expects to drill more targets in order to describe the strike length of the mineralized zone.
