QUEBEC – Bonterra Resources of Vancouver says it has drilled 17.8 g/t gold over 3.0 metres west of and along strike from the Gladiator gold deposit in the Abitibi region, 170 km northeast of Val d’Or. High grade intersections in multiple zones westward, adding strike length in the Rivage gap, and demonstrating the continuity of the mineralization, said the company.

These are the highlights:

  • Hole BQ-18-05 returned 9.3 g/t gold over 3.1 metres from the North zone, 4.2 g/t over 1.5 metres from the Footwall zone, 6.9 g/t over 1.3 metres from the Main zone, and 3.5 g/t over 1.2 metres at the Barbeau zone.
  • Hole BA-18-06 intersected 6.1 g/t gold over 2.5 metres at 350 metres depth in the South zone and 4.7 g/t over 3.0 metres in the North zone.
  • Holes BA-18-07 returned 8.8 g/t gold over 1.3 metres from the North zone and 5.8 g/t over 1.2 metres in the South zone.
  • Hole BA-18-08 cut the aforementioned 17.8 g/t gold over 3.0 metres at the South zone.

The ongoing 2018 drill campaign will total 70,000 metres. The 30,000-metre winter program aims to define all mineralized horizons.

Using a 4 g/t cut-off, the Gladiator inferred resource is 905,000 tonnes at 9.37 g/t gold for 273,000 contained oz. of gold. These numbers come from a 43-101 report filed in July 2012. Increases may be expected when the next technical report is filed.
