QUEBEC – Vancouver-based Bonterra Resources has expanded the high grade core area  of the South zone at its Gladiator gold project 170 km northeast of Val d’Or with the intersection of 18.5 g/t gold over 4.0 metres. Significant width and grade were also found in the Footwall zone where core assayed 10 g/t gold over 6.3 metres.

To date drilling has confirmed the continuity of mineralization over a strike length of 1,200 metres to a depth of 1,200 metres. The mineralization occurs on two horizons – Main and Footwall. The deposit remains open in all directions.

Bonterra has concluded its summer drill program at Gladiator. Two more drills are to be added to the property, bringing the total to six, as the company continues to expand the resource. An updated 43-101 resource estimate is expected next year. Using a cut-off of 4.0 g/t, the project currently contains an inferred resource of 905,000 tonnes grading 9.37 g/t gold.
