Bonterra intersects 16.5 g/t Au over 2.7 m, including 29.5 g/t over 1m in New Zone northeast of Barry Gold Deposit

Sep 9, 2021

Bonterra Resources Inc. has announced results from the ongoing drilling campaign at the Barry project.  Recent drilling results expand upon the northeast sector of the Barry deposit near surface and at depth.  The latest results encompass 13 diamond drill holes designed to expand the 2021 mineral resource estimate (“2021 MRE”) released in June (see press release dated June 23, 2021).  Drilling highlights include 16.5 g/t grams-per-tonne gold (“g/t Au”) over 2.7 metres (“m”) in a new zone named H16, immediately northeast of the 2021 MRE.
The Company is currently drilling at a rate of approximately 6,000 m per month, focused on its main gold deposits to expand upon the recently released 2021 MREs. In addition, work on the preliminary economic assessment (“PEA”), which would utilize the existing Bachelor Mill as a central processing facility is ongoing and is expected to be completed in Q4 2021.
Highlights include:

  • 16.5 g/t Au over 2.7 m, including 29.5 g/t over 1.0 m and 4.5 g/t over 2.0 m in MB-21-355
  • 0.7 g/t Au over 55.0 m, including 7.5 g/t Au over 1.5 m and 3.6 g/t Au over 3.9 m in MB-21-359
  • 16.0 g/t over 0.6 m and 12.6 g/t over 0.5 m in MB-21-368
  • 5.9 g/t Au over 5.3 m, including 22.0 g/t over 0.9 m in MB-21-369
  • 4.8 g/t over 2.0 m, including 18.4 g/t over 0.4 m in MB-21-376

Pascal Hamelin, CEO commented: “The results released today support our view that substantial near surface exploration potential exists at Barry.  Recent exploration drilling hit both thick, continuous mineralization at open pit depth and high-grade intervals within 200 m depth immediately adjacent of the 2021 MRE.  We look forward to receiving more diamond drill results from this area soon.”
