BonTerra’s recent work has included ground mag, air mag, and channel sampling with the sole focus to define gold bearing drill targets. Diamond drilling will commence on the targeted area following the receipt of the drill permits, which are expected, from the government of Quebec shortly. The rig is currently mobilized on standby on the Urban Barry property and will commence drilling hole 4 (BU-10-04) of the current campaign on the Eastern Extension Property. Geologica is currently logging and splitting core from holes 1-3 (BU-10-01 to BU-10-03) and will be shipped to ALS Chemex of Val d’Or in the next few days. Geologica Inc. of Val d’Or, Quebec is responsible for overseeing the drill and channel sampling program on behalf of the Company.

The Eastern Extension property has numerous non NI 43-101 compliant high grade drill intercepts. The historical drill intercepts were drilled by Xemac Resources in 1997, 1998 and 2001. BonTerra plans on twinning some of these historical drill holes in compliance with NI 43-101. In addition to this, BonTerra plans on drilling new zones defined by the channel sampling program. A selection of these historical non NI 43-101 compliant intercepts are in the table below.
