Bonterra discovers new gold zone within 2km of Bachelor Mill

Mar 22, 2021

Bonterra Resources Inc. has announced the discovery of a new near surface zone of gold mineralization found within the Company’s Bachelor-Desmaraisville land package.  Drilling encountered a broad zone of mineralization that is located close to surface and within two kilometres of the Company’s 100% owned Bachelor Mill.  The newly discovered zone of mineralization is proximal to the syenite intrusion shown in Figure 2.  Results to date indicate that the mineralized zone is open in all directions.  The Company plans to mobilize a drill crew as soon as possible to begin follow-up work.


  • 24.85 metres (“m”) of 1.4 grams-per-tonne gold ("g/t Au"); including 4.25 m of 3.6 g/t Au (EB20-008);
  • 18.3 m of 0.9 g/t Au; including 10.5 m of 1.3 g/t Au (EB21-021); and
  • Both results occur within 50 m of surface and the mineralization is open in all directions.

Pascal Hamelin, CEO commented: "This newly discovered near-surface mineralized target is extremely exciting for Bonterra. The new gold target has the potential to rapidly grow due to the widths and ease in which short holes from surface can be used to define the target boundaries.  To find something this close to the Bachelor mill demonstrates the untapped potential of this mining camp.  We continue to believe this camp is largely underexplored and that there will be several new discoveries in the region in the near future.  In addition, the discovery’s proximity to our existing mill infrastructure is also important as it lowers the hurdle to becoming a potential source of mill feed.  As a result of this success, we plan on mobilizing a drill crew as soon as possible to do immediate follow-up work on near-surface targets.”
