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