BonTerra Resources Receives Assay Results from Eastern Extension Property

BonTerra Resources has obtained the assay results of the holes 27, 28, 30 and 31 from the Eastern Extension property, which is located 170 km to the northeast part of Quebec’s gold mining city. The company has intersected over 25.70 g/t gold in the drill hole BA-11-31. This property is in the Abitibi Greenstone belt.

Three-dimensional modeling conducted recently at the property implied the frequent presence of high-grade gold, where the meeting of two or more veins occurs. These veins seem to have the continuation of gold-rich veins all through the mineralized region.

BonTerra has expected that the future drill program will continue to extend these vein systems, including the Rivage zone. The location of this Rivage zone is 700 m from the present drilling campaign. A vein outcrop, whose length is 2 m and thickness is 0.20 m, is featured in this zone. The company has encountered 25.8 g/t silver and 204.0 g/t gold from a chip sample in this vein. It has scheduled for additional work to increase this vein’s size, which has also included the winter drilling of this region.

All the drill programs have focused on the Eastern Extension property, which has smoky quartz veins with sulphide mineralization. Generally, sulphides are made up of mineralized zones that are of 1-10% and can be as more as 50% locally. Carbonate, chlorite, epidote, sericite, silica and tourmaline are present in the alteration. The mixture of alteration types, sulphides, tourmaline and quartz veins is suitable for gold mineralization in the region. The occurrence of sphalerite in the quartz veins is seemed to be connected with the high-grade zones of gold present at the property.
