Bonterra Resources Inc. (Bonterra) has announced assay results from its ongoing diamond drilling programme at its Gladiator project, located in the Urban Barry exploration camp in northern Québec. The results reported yesterday extend several of the gold-bearing mineralised zones along strike on the Gladiator Deposit.
The Barbeau zone is the southernmost of the mineralised Gladiator structures and is characterised by mineralised smoky quartz veins with pyrite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite and visible gold. Current drilling has extended the zone by 250 m, confirming its continuity in grade and length with hole BA-19-24 that returned 14.6 g/t Au over 4.6 m. The Barbeau zone has now been outlined over a strike length of 450 m to a depth of 200 m.
The Rivage 2 zone, located north of the Gladiator deposit, consists sub-vertical quartz veins mineralised with pyrite, sphalerite and visible gold. Initially discovered by field prospecting in the summer of 2018, the mineralised zone now extends over 350 m to a depth of 200 m. Drill hole BA-19-28 returned 37.6 g/t Au over 1.7 m. The Rivage 2 zone remains open along strike and at depth.
The South zone, located in the heart of the Gladiator deposit, was intersected in drill hole BA-19-26A that returned 17.7 g/t Au over 2.0 m. Mineralisation typically consists of smoky quartz, pyrite, sphalerite and visible gold.
Attesting to the company's geological modelling and continuity of the mineralised zones, this drill hole was expected to intersect the South zone prior to reaching the Barbeau zone.
Greg Gibson, Interim CEO, states: "These drill results continue to demonstrate the potential for strike extensions on the multiple gold-mineralised zones that make up the Gladiator deposit, which we anticipate will translate into additional ounces. This new drilling data on the Gladiator deposit will be included in the upcoming property-wide resource estimate.”
