Bonterra Resources Commences Exploration Program at Gladiator Project, Quebec
Vancouver, BC – September 16, 2015: BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX-V: BTR) (the “Company” or “Bonterra”) is pleased to announce that exploration and drilling activities are set to commence on the Company’s Gladiator gold project located in the Abitbi Subprovince, north of Val d’Or, Quebec.
Activities will be focused on growing and extending the Company’s newly-discovered Gladiator Zone located on the Spartacus Trend within the West Arena Property. The Spartacus Trend has been identified by the Company’s geologists as a northeast trending shear zone primarily within mafic volcanic units that host local intrusions of syenite and gabbro. Gold mineralization is predominantly contained within quartz-carbonate veining and associated alteration related to shearing, faults, folds and other typical structural controls. So far, the deposit has been drilled over a 500-meter strike length from surface and consists of a number of parallel, anastomosing and intersecting steeply dipping shear zones. Initial drilling will target strike extensions and down plunge extensions, especially along the thicker, more robust areas where the shears intersect.
Regional Magnetics Map:
Two additional parallel trends have been identified by geophysical signature and limited drilling, namely the Crixus to the north and the Gannicus to the south, each trend is separated by approximately 500 meters.
The Coliseum Property, located immediately to the west contains the western extensions of the Spartacus and Crixus trends in the southeastern quadrant. The western and northern quadrants display the same geology and geophysical characteristics as the Barry Deposit and open pit located along strike immediately to the west. Bonterra has recognized numerous structural and geophysical targets along this trend on the Coliseum ground, and intends to incorporate this area into its exploration plans.
Bonterra’s exploration program will consist of drilling targets as described above, as well as expanding on its geophysical information and mapping. A limited program of sampling and re-logging previously drilled holes will also be undertaken in order to determine potential broader values between individual zones.
