Bonterra makes New Gold Discovery at Barry North

Dec 21, 2020

"This newly discovered zone near surface is very promising and confirms the existence of previously untested gold mineralization just north of the Barry deposit.  We look forward to receiving more drill results from this zone,” Pascal Hamelin, President and CEO commented.

Bonterra Resources Inc. is pleased to announce a new gold discovery at Barry North. Recent exploration drilling has confirmed the existence of gold mineralized vein structures spanning approximately 750 metres (“m”) in length along strike, approximately 150 m north of the Barry gold deposit.  The Barry North zone is proximal andsubparallel to the Mazères regional fault.  These vein structures remain open along strike and at depth.  Barry North’s gold mineralization is associated with quartz veining with some pyrite hosted within sheared mafic volcanic rocks and proximal to felsic intrusive rocks. 
The best results obtained from the newly discovered Barry North zone include several intersections which are as follows: 3.8 g/t Au over 0.7 m in hole MB-20-290, 2.6 g/t Au over 3.9 m in hole MB-20-295 and 3.3 g/t Au over 2.0 m in hole MB-20-302.  These holes are located just north and adjacent to the Barry deposit.
The company has drilled 42 holes representing a total of 15,225 m at Barry since July 23, 2020.   

In addition, infill drilling continues to confirm the western mineral continuity of the H1 and 800 zones at Barry. The best results include 7.4 g/t Au over 2.3 m, including 20.4 g/t Au over 0.8 m and 5.7 g/t Au over 0.5 m in hole MB-20-298 and 5.6 g/t Au over 1.5 m in hole MB-20-296 for the H1 Sector and H1 zones, respectively.
