BONTERRA EXTENDS GLADIATOR ZONE 100 METERS WESTWARD WITH 9.0 G/T GOLD OVER 5.0 METERS NEAR SURFACE
Bonterra Resources Inc. (BTR.V) has received assays from the first two holes (BA-16-01 and BA-16-03) from its 2016 exploration and drill program on its 100-per-cent-owned Gladiator gold project located north of Val d’Or, Que.
Drilling so far has extended all zones 100 meters to the west of previously known limits most notably in the Main zone with a high grade near surface intersection of 9.0 g/t over 5.0 m in hole BA-16-03. BA-16-03 was a shorter probe hole located to test only for the western extension of the Main zone near surface. Drill hole BA-16-01 intersected three zones, most notably the broad and mineralized intrusive unit at approximately 300 meters in depth, extending this zone another 100 meters to the west. Visible gold was noted in the Main zone at 355 meters in hole BA-16-01.
Nine holes have been drilled to date in 2016 and are in various stages of assay or logging. Two drills continue western extension drilling while excellent winter conditions permit. A third drill is on site and will be operational as soon as supporting logistics and extra staff are in place.
Nav Dhaliwal, President and CEO of BonTerra, stated: “We continue to expand on the limits of gold mineralization at the Gladiator Gold Project. The near surface high-grade extension is exciting and we will adjust our targeting program to incorporate this new information.”
