Bonterra intersects 26.6 g/t Au over 5.2 metres at Gladiator

Jan 14, 2021

Bonterra Resources Inc. is pleased to announce results from the ongoing 16,500 metres (“m”) drill campaign at its Gladiator project focused on expanding the size and scope of the project as well as improve grade continuity for the upcoming mineral resources update expected this summer. Assays from eight holes received since November 30, 2020 are included in this press release and were highlighted by:

  • Main Zone (Expansion): 26.6 g/t Au over 5.2 m in hole BA-20-29
  • North Zone (Expansion): 15.6 g/t Au over 2.0 m in hole BA-20-23

Pascal Hamelin, CEO commented “Recent assays have expanded both the size of the mineralized system and confirmed the high-grade continuity for the Main and North Zones at Gladiator. Drilling has been mainly focused on expanding the known mineralized envelope and improving confidence. Drilling continues to progress well and is on track to complete the 16,500 m campaign at Gladiator before the upcoming mineral resources estimate update expected to be released this summer.”
Gladiator Deposit Geology
The Gladiator deposit consists of three primary zones; the North, Main and Barbeau Zones. The North and the Main Zone are characterized by felsic dykes hosted mineralized quartz veins within steeply south-southeast dipping shear zones having developed at the contacts between mafic and intermediate volcanics and gabbroic intrusions. The Main Zone includes a secondary sub-parallel vein interpreted as a dislocated fold along the Main Zone structure.  The North Corridor and South Zones are a series of mineralized zones spatially correlated with felsic dykes dipping to the south-southeast. These zones are interpreted to be subparallel and similar mineralized trends to the North and Main Zones. Additional “North Dipper” mineralized zones with trends moderately to steeply dipping northward, similar to the Barbeau Zone, are confirmed from the latest drilling (Figures 1 and 4).
