BonTerra Resources Nearly Completes First Drill Hole at Eastern Extension Project

BonTerra Resources has continued drilling on ice and land at its Eastern Extension project. The company has almost completed the first drill hole on ice. This property is situated 170km northeast of Val d'Or, Quebec in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt.

BonTerra has planned to drill ten shallow holes on ice. Out of these ten holes, it will drill four holes at the Peninsula zone. Previously, this zone has intersected 7 g/t gold over 13 metres and 17.02 g/t gold over 4 metres. BonTerra will drill the second two holes for the Peninsula zone, which are 50 metres to the west, to assess a 140 metre wide high to very high near the surface chargeability anomaly. Earlier, this very large anomaly was not at all drilled.

The purpose of holes five to eight are to expand the strike 270 metres to the southwest of the unique gold intercept. The holes nine and ten will drill further IP anomalies to the east. When the company has finished drilling all the ten holes it will include a total length of 590 metres.

This is an incredible opportunity for BonTerra to extend a significant strike of gold zones to the southwest. The Company is utilizing this ice conditions to complete the ten holes on the ice before it splits up. The zone chargeability is very high and appears to link with the zone strike.
