Bon­terra Re­sources drills 2.7m of 4.7g/t Au at Coli­seum

Stockwatch Daily - - MINES & METALS - Mr. Nav Dhali­wal re­ports

BON­TERRA RE­SOURCES Inc.’s re­cent ex­plo­ration ac­tiv­i­ties lo­cated west of the Glad­i­a­tor de­posit and within the ex­ten­sive Coli­seum prop­erty have led to the discovery a new gold- and sil­ver-bear­ing hori­zon (Tem­ica gold zone). The discovery lo­cated ap­prox­i­mately four kilo­me­tres to the south­west of the Glad­i­a­tor de­posit, was high­lighted by re­cent drill hole CL-17-14, which in­ter­sected 4.7 grams per tonne gold and 44.6 g/t sil­ver over 2.7 me­tres at a depth of 250 m be­low sur­face. The Bon­terra tech­ni­cal team con­sid­ers this newly dis­cov­ered zone to be an ex­ten­sion of the Glad­i­a­tor min­er­al­ized trend.

Key high­lights:

• Hole CL-17-14 discovery of new min­er­al­ized zone (Tem­ica gold zone) with an in­ter­sec­tion of 4.7 g/t Au and 44.6 g/t Ag over 2.7 m at 250 m be­low sur­face. This drill hole is lo­cated over four km to the south­west of the Glad­i­a­tor de­posit:

• Drill hole 17-14 re­turned

44.6 g/t Ag with the pres­ence of galena as ad­di­tional sul­phide min­er­al­iza­tion.

• Hole CL-17-06 in­ter­sects new min­er­al­ized zone (Tem­ica gold zone) with an in­ter­sec­tion of 13.0 g/t Au over 1.0 m at 200 m be­low sur­face, and lo­cated over five km to the south­west of the Glad­i­a­tor gold de­posit.

• Hole CL-17-01 also in­ter­sected the Tem­ica zone near sur­face with close prox­im­ity to drill hole CL-17-14, but was lo­cated too close to the zone and re­sulted in a par­tial in­ter­sec­tion.

• Three drill holes now ex­ist in the Tem­ica zone over a one km length as de­scribed above.

• The pre­vi­ously com­pleted till sam­pling and in­duced po­lar­iza­tion sur­veys led to the drilling and discovery of the Tem­ica zone. Fur­ther drilling will be con­ducted on ad­di­tional tar­gets and iden­ti­fied trends as well as on the Tem­ica zone.

• Both CL-17-06 and CL-17-14 in­ter­sected shear zone hosted min­er­al­ized quartz-car­bon­ate vein­ing with pyrite and spha­lerite.

Please see the sur­face plan map show­ing the lo­ca­tions of the new Tem­ica gold zone drill holes and other tar­gets rel­a­tive to the lo­ca­tion of the Glad­i­a­tor gold de­posit. The re­source de­vel­op­ment drill pro­gram at the Glad­i­a­tor gold de­posit con­tin­ues to fo­cus on ex­tend­ing the known gold zones, with at­ten­tion on the new, ad­di­tional dis­cov­ered gold zones lo­cated to the north and south of the ini­tial Glad­i­a­tor gold veins.

Robert Gagnon, PGeo, has ap­proved the in­for­ma­tion con­tained in this re­lease. Mr. Gagnon is a di­rec­tor of Bon­terra and is a qual­i­fied per­son as de­fined by Na­tional In­stru­ment 43-101.
