BonTerra to Drill Urban-Barry Township

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 25, 2010) - BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BTR) (FRANKFURT:9BR) (the "Company", "Bonterra") announces it has retained the services of Geologica Inc. of Val d'Or, Quebec to oversee and manage the Company's drill program on the 100% owned Urban-Barry Township Gold property. Since 1985, Geologica Inc. is a diverse mining exploration consulting company which has worked on over 500 exploration projects to date. Their clients have included Barrick Gold Corporation, Placer Dome, Cominco, Teck, SOQUEM, Xstrata, Vale Inco, Kinross Gold Corporation, Agnico Eagle Mines Limited and Ministry of Natural Resource and Fauna of Quebec.

Geologica will oversee a 2,000 metre drill program of four to eight (8) holes on the property in the Urban-Barry Greenstone Belt of Quebec. The drill program will target anomalies defined by completed airborne and ground based geophysics. The primary target is situated where geophysical anomalies correspond with the contact between mafic volcanics and sedimentary rocks with several north-south fault structures with the potential to act as gold traps and controls.

Additional targets are being identified by field prospecting for areas of quartz-carbonate veining along with chalcopyrite mineralization. To date one of these has been discovered. It is the intent of the Company to conduct a campaign of outcrop stripping and sampling to analyzing the potential for drilling.

The drill targets will test a 3km anomaly, which is hosted in a northeast to southwest trend. It lays in a parallel fault structure between the known Souart deposit of Glen Eagle Resources Inc. (currently estimated to be 510,110 tonnes at 6.2 g/t; non NI 43-101 compliant) and Amseco Exploration Ltd.- Beaufield Resource Inc.'s Lac Rouleau. Lac Rouleau is currently composed of 544,000 tonnes at 7.2 g/t (non NI 43-101 compliant).

BonTerra Resources geologists believe that the magnetic anomaly that runs through the Urban-Barry property is parallel to the known gold bearing structure to the north. This northern structure runs from Eagle Hill Exploration Corp.'s Windfall Lake property (33 metres at 19 g/t as well as a 1,400 metre underground decline) in the northeast to Metanor Resource Inc.'s non NI 43-101 compliant Barry Deposit (35,500 Oz gold indicated & 67,600 Oz gold inferred in zones 43 and 45 and in the main zone) in the southwest.

Company President, Mitchell Adam states, "We have recently completed over 80km of line cutting and interpretation of both our ground and air magnetic surveys, We are now to the point where the prospecting of the quartz-carbonate veining has culminated in the development of some outstanding drill targets. We are firmly of the belief that our first drill program will ensure success to assist us in outlining the potential of developing a gold bearing deposit."

The 100% owned property is located approximately 170 km NE of Val-d'Or and 125 km SW of Chibougamau in the Urban township in James Bay, Quebec Neighboring Companies in the region are Amesco, Beafield, BonTerra, Eagle Hill, Glen Eagle, Metanor, and Urbana.
