Drilling Update- Samples Submitted for Assay from the Rivage Zone
BonTerra has submitted drill core samples from 2 drill holes at the Rivage Zone ("Rivage") to ALS Labs in Val d'Or, Quebec ("ALS") for assay. The samples from the Rivage are prospective due to the presence of visible gold and persistent sphalerite seen in BA-12-12 in the mineralized, smoked and altered quartz veins. The Rivage is a new zone which was not incorporated into the resource estimate recently completed for the Property. The first hole drilled at the Rivage assayed 73.82 g/t gold over 3.0 metres including one metre assaying 220 g/t gold.
