Big Picture – A Deep Dive Examination of Bonterra Resources
Bonterra Resources Snapshot
The Gladiator Deposit is described as a highly silicified and altered sheared mafic volcanics, locally exhibiting intrusions of syenite and quartz porphyry. Smoky quartz veining also occurs locally containing the bulk of the mineralization and free gold. Mineralization consists of minor (trace to 2%) pyrite, chalcopyrite and yellow sphalerite throughout but especially in and near the contacts with the quartz veining.
Mineralization at the Barry Deposit has been identified 1,300 m along strike and 600 m at depth. The deposit remains open in all directions, where at least three distinct sub-parallel gold bearing shear zones and secondary tension veins are mineralized. Between 2008-2010, 43,970 ounces of gold was extracted from three small pits at the Barry Deposit. More recently, the focus has been underground development with a ramp underway to being a bulk sampling program in early 2019. A mineral resource estimate for the is anticipated in Q4 2018.
The Moroy Deposit is a south-parallel system to the Bachelor mine dipping north towards the Bachelor trend with potential to intersect the main trend at depth. Development and drill programs underway at Moroy with more than 65,000 m of surface and underground drilling completed on to date. In 2019, Bonterra will updated the NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate at the Moroy Deposit.
