BonTerra Proposes Share Split

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2009) - BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BTR) (FRANKFURT:9BR) (the "Company") announces a proposal to split the shares of the Company on a one (1) old for two (2) new share basis. There are currently 22,842,898 common shares issued and outstanding, and if the proposed share split of one old for two new shares takes place, there would be approximately 45,685,796 common shares issued and outstanding. Outstanding stock options and share purchase warrants will also be adjusted by the share split ratio and the respective exercise prices of outstanding stock options and warrants will be adjusted accordingly. The Company will not be changing its name in conjunction with the share split. Although the proposed share split is not subject to shareholder approval, the share split is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company proposes the share split to increase liquity of its shares and, in turn, make financing terms more attractive.

The Company intends to set a record date for the proposed stock split as the second business day following issuance of the Exchange Bulletin by the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company intends to issue a subsequent news release with the exact record date once such date is determined following TSX Venture Exchange approval.
