QUEBEC – Vancouver-based BonTerra Resources has received the assays from five recent drill holes at its Gladiator gold project north of Val d’Or. The company says it has discovered not one, but two, new high grade gold zones north and south of the Main deposit.
To the north, hole BA-16-02 cut 44.0 metres of 0.40 g/t Au in the north shear 2 and 58.0 metres at 2.5 g/t Au in the north shear 1. The best assays came from a 5.0-metre section of the north shear 1 that assayed 15.3 g/t Au.
Hole BA-16-05 drilled through the Main zone into the new South zone at a depth of approximately 290 metres below the surface returned 29.0 g/t Au over 3.3 metres from the new South zone.
In the Main zone, hole BA-16-09 returned 24.3 g/t Au over 5.7 metres from less than 30 metres below surface. Another hole (BA-16-04) in the Main zone returned 10.4 g/t Au over 6.0 metres at shallow depths.
BonTerra, using a 4 g/t cut-off, has estimated the inferred resource at Gladiator of 905,000 tonnes grading 9.37 g/t Au or 273,000 oz of gold. More information and cross-sections are posted at www.BonTerraResources.com.
