Gold News: BonTerra Resources (CA:BTR)(PINK:BONXF)(FRANKFURT:9BR) drills 1.2 m of 25 g/t Au at Eastern

Vancouver, British Columbia, October 21, 2011 eMediaWorld Reports BONTERRA CONTINUES TO ASSAY HIGH GRADE GOLD

BonTerra Resources Inc. has received assays for holes 27, 28, 30 & 31 on the Eastern Extension property (the “Property”) in Quebec. The highlight of these drill holes was BA-11-31 which assayed as high as 25.70 grams / tonne gold. The Property is situated 170km northeast of the gold mining city of Val d’Or, Quebec in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt.

All significant assays for the drill holes are shown in table 1. Table 2 details the locations of the four drill holes disclosed in this news release.

Recent 3D modeling of the Property suggests bonanza gold grades often found on this property are present where two or more veins meet, ideal conditions for concentrating gold. It appears these veins rich in gold persist throughout the mineralized area.

The Company anticipates that future drilling will continue to expand these vein systems. An example of this is the recently discovered Rivage Zone. The Rivage zone is situated 700 metres from the current drill program. This zone is characterized by a vein outcrop measuring two metres long and 0.20 metres wide. This vein assayed 204.0 g/t gold and 25.8 g/t silver in a chip sample. This sample was the only one taken at the outcrop. Further work is planned to increase the size of this vein including drilling the area this winter.

Mitchell Adam, President states, “BonTerra continues to assay drill holes with significant gold mineralization. We believe that the cumulative total of all this drilling will begin to add considerable value for our shareholders.”

Geological Characteristics of the Gold Bearing Veins on the Eastern Extension

The target for all drilling on the Eastern Extension property is smoky quartz veins mineralized with sulphides (pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite +/- visible gold). Sulphides commonly compose 1-10% of the mineralized zones and can be as high as 50% locally. Alteration is most commonly silica, carbonate, chlorite, tourmaline, sericite and epidote. The combination of quartz veins, tourmaline, alteration types and sulphides is ideal for gold mineralization in the area. Sphalerite present in the quartz veins appears to be associated with the highest grade gold zones on the Property to date.

Qualified Person

This technical content of this press release has been reviewed and accepted by Thomas Clarke, Pr.Sci.Nat., a Director of BonTerra. Mr. Clarke is a Qualified Person under NI 43-101.

The drill program and sampling is being supervised on behalf of the Company by Geologica Inc. of Val d’Or, Quebec. These are sample results, taken from mineralized intervals of the drill holes. Depths and lengths are core lengths and not true widths. Gold intercepts disclosed in this news release are significant gold intercepts and not all the samples submitted for fire assay. Samples were submitted to ALS Chemex of Val d’Or, Quebec for crushing, pulverizing and fire-assay for gold. Samples fire-assaying greater than 10 grams per tonne gold are then fire-assayed with a gravimetric finish to establish the gold grade. Assay samples are taken from drill core, sawed in half along the core axis. One half is sent to ALS Chemex Laboratories and the other half retained by the Company for future reference. The Company applies a full quality assurance and quality control program (QAQC) system for every batch of samples submitted to the lab (gold standard, sample duplicate and blank).
