QUEBEC – Drilling by Bonterra Resources of Vancouver at the Gladiator gold property in the Urban-Barry camp has extended the new South zone to 600 metres below surface. Other hole results have been received that extend both the Main and North zones at depth.

Recent assay highlights and their significance include:

  • Hole BA-17-22 extends the new South zone with 3.8 meters of 12.0 g/t at 600 meters below surface. This is the first intersection from the south island location series of holes that allow for deeper drilling from a southern hanging wall location. Hole BA-17-15 extends the Main zone to depth from previous drilling with 4.0 meters of 9.1 g/t at 700 meters below surface.
  • Hole BA-17-21 has deepened the North zone to nearly 500 meters below surface with 3.0 meters of 21.5 g/t and the zone remains open at depth.
  • Continuity of mineralization is now confirmed over a total drilled strike length on at least two horizons (Main and Footwall) of 1.2 km, as well as a drilled depth of 1 km.
  • New results provide drilled continuity to depths of 500 to 700 meters for additional zones (North and South).

Bonterra owns 100% of the Gladiator gold property. The deposit has been traced to at least 800 metres below surface over a strike length of  1,200 metres. It remains open in all directions. Current work is focused on the Deep East zone, the western side and infill of the Rivage gap, and a potential target called Coliseum.
