VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 31, 2012) - BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BTR) (FRANKFURT:9BR) (the "Company" or "BonTerra") is pleased to provide an update on its 100% owned Eastern Extension property (the "Property") located approximately 170 km northeast of Val d'Or, Quebec. BonTerra recently completed a prospecting program which aimed to check IP anomalies (conductors) associates with magnetic highs along the NE-SW structures.
BonTerra discovered two parallel structures identified on the magnetic map as well at the chargeability/resistivity map. These structures have been followed up and confirmed by BonTerra's geologist, Robert Gagnon and his team. The first structure intersects the Peninsula zone (calculation showed an inferred resource of 492,000 ounces of gold at 3.53 grams per tonne) with a shear continuous corridor and favorable to discovery of a new gold showing. Several mineralized samples were collected along the corridor and sent in to be sampled.
The second potential area contains a shear corridor which is parallel to the first but shifted to the North. This shear corridor contains a new showing called the Rivage that has returned 73.82 grams per tonne gold over 3.00 metres (May 10, 2012 news release). It is possible that a late stage structure could have moved and shifted the same shear. Additionally, several outcrops hosting tension and mineralized quartz pyrite-chalocoypyrite veins have been sampled along the second shear corridor.
The map below shows the distribution of samples and the projection of the structures and their continuities in the Peninsula area as well as in the Rivage area. In all, 30 mineralized samples were sent to the Val d'Or ALS Chemex Analysis Laboratory.
"The discovery of these parallel structures in our Peninsula and Rivage zone are exciting findings as we look to expand our drill targets for our upcoming drill program" stated Navjit Dhaliwal, BonTerra's President. "BonTerra's technical team is currently preparing to carry out the drilling program on the Property beginning this fall which will be aimed at these new targets".
Robert Gagnon, P.Geo (OGQ), of BonTerra, is a "Qualified Person" as that term is defined in National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, and has reviewed and approved the technical content of this news release.
