Bonterra Intersects 8.0 g/t Au Over 12m northeast of the Barry Gold Deposit

Oct 6, 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 obtained from 21 diamond drill holes are designed to expand the 2021 mineral resource estimate ("2021 MRE") released in June (see press release dated June 23, 2021). Drilling highlights include 8.0 g/t grams-per-tonne gold ("g/t Au") over 12.1 metres ("m") in the near-surface zone AB8, approximately 75 m northeast of the 2021 MRE. 

The Company is currently drilling at a rate of approximately 6,000 m per month, focused on expanding its main gold deposits highlighted within the recently released 2021 MREs.

Highlights include:

  • 8.0 g/t Au over 12.1 m, including 14.9 g/t Au over 3.7 m in MB-21-384
  • 1.8 g/t Au over 13.5 m, including 10.4 g/t Au over 1.0 m in MB-21-372
  • 2.5 g/t Au over 8.3 m, including 11.2 g/t Au over 1.7 m and 4.6 g/t Au over 3.5 m, including 25.6 g/t Au over 0.6 m in MB-21-382

Pascal Hamelin, CEO commented: "These near surface results, in particular in hole MB-21-384 substantiates our view that a strong mineralized potential exists at Barry from the recent exploration drilling which intercepted thick and continuous gold mineralization intervals near surface and within 200 m depth immediately adjacent to the 2021 MRE. More assays are pending from this same sector, and we look forward to receiving more diamond drill results from this area."
