Gladiator deposit grows for Bonterra Resources
Vancouver-based Bonterra Resources (CVE: BTR) is continues its drilling program of at the Gladiator gold property and has extended the known mineralization to both the east and west. The property is in the Urban-Barry camp, 170 km northeast of Val d’Or, Quebec.
The project includes the Gladiator deposit and the Duke claims about 200 metres north of the most northerly Gladiator zone. Drilling at Duke returned 27.4 g/t gold over 7.0 metres less than 100 metres below the surface.
Observations on recent drill holes:
- Holes BRS-17-10 and BRS-17-11 were historic and re-sampled intervals indicated potential extensions of the Gladiator deposit to the northeast of up to 2 km with 8.7 g/t gold over 3.0 metres and 7.7 g/t Au over 3.0 metres, extending the total Gladiator trend to 4.5 km.
- Hole CL-17-31 intersected 5.5 g/t gold over 3.0 metres at Coliseum zone 1 km to the southwest of Gladiator deposit.
- Hole BA-18-109 intersected 5.6 g/t gold over 1.5 metres at the new Titan zone confirming the mineralized structure northeast of Gladiator deposit.
Bonterra says two rigs are currently in operation at Gladiator. Both the Titan and Coliseum zones remain open in all directions.
