Bonterra Continues to Expand Gladiator Gold Deposit West to Rivage Gap and Intersects Additional New North Zone

Vancouver, BC – May 16, 2017Bonterra Resources Inc. (TSX-V: BTR, US: BONXF, FSE: 9BR1) (the “Company” or “Bonterra”) is pleased to announce that ongoing drilling to the west of the main Gladiator Deposit within the “Rivage Gap” has encountered multiple high grade intersections as well as a major strike length extension of the new North horizon. 

Quick Highlights of Recent Drill Results:

Nav Dhaliwal, CEO and President of Bonterra, stated: “Results from the Rivage Gap, or the western area of the Gladiator Gold Deposit, continue to add positive value to the understanding of the geological model and the potential addition of significant new resources. A recent interpretation has determined that the Rivage Gap is part of the main mineralized system, and our technical team is currently confirming the impact of what the most recent results clearly demonstrate. We are excited with the continued positive results from within the Rivage Gap area, and look forward to further extending these zones, similar to our success within the main Gladiator area.”

Stated lengths are core width as drilled, true widths vary and average between 60 and 80 percent of drilled widths.  Core axis angles of the intersection contacts and surrounding rock units average 55 to 70 degrees.

All intersections from the above table are located within a length or gap of drill information between the westernmost Rivage area and the known portion of the Gladiator Deposit. The high grade Main, Footwall and North Zones are in or near the sheared contact between mafic volcanic units and a mineralized felsic porphyritic intrusive.
