Bonterra Resources Inc (CVE:BTR) (OTCMKTS:BONXF) announced Thursday promising results from diamond drilling at its Gladiator Deposit in Quebec.
The exploration company reported in a statement the extension of gold-bearing mineralized deposits. The results included the intersection of 14.6 grams of gold per tonne over 4.6 meters and 37.6 grams of gold per tonne over 1.7 meters, according to Bonterra.
"These drill results continue to demonstrate the potential for strike extensions on the multiple gold-mineralized zones that make up the Gladiator deposit, which we anticipate will translate into additional ounces," said interim CEO Greg Gibson. "This new drilling data on the Gladiator deposit will be included in the upcoming property-wide resource estimate."
Bonterra reported at its Barbeau zone, current drilling has extended the zone by 250 metres, with highlights including 14.6 grams of gold per tonne over 4.6 meters at one hole. At its Rivage 2 zone, located north of the Gladiator deposit, drill hole BA-19-28 returned 37.6 grams of gold per tonne over 1.7 meters.
At its South zone, located in the heart of the Gladiator deposit, highlights included 17.7 grams of gold per tonne over 2.0 meters.
"Attesting to the company's geological modeling and continuity of the mineralized zones, this drill hole was expected to intersect the South zone prior to reaching the Barbeau zone. Additional results are provided in the drilling highlights table below.
