BonTerra Acquires Long Lake Claims, Stewart, BC

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - September 17, 2009) - BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX-V: BTR) (the "Company" or "BTR") is pleased to announce that it has acquired 100% interest in the Long Lake claims. The Claims are 3 km from Decade Resources Ltd. Red Cliff project in northwestern British Columbia. The road accessible property, approximately 433 ha. in size, is located adjacent to Long Lake, 22 km north of Stewart.

The Long Lake property is underlain by rocks of the middle Jurassic Hazelton Group, the main host for significant precious and base metal deposits in the Stewart Camp including the Silbak Premier, Big Missouri, Silver Coin, Sulphurets, Red Mountain and Eskay Creek deposits. The property contains six known BC Geological Survey Minfile occurrences (see map). The Spider 3 showing was explored with underground workings dating back to the 1920s. The remaining occurrences were discovered in the 1950s and have been explored intermittently since that time, including mapping and sampling, trenching, geophysical surveys and local drilling. The occurrences include mainly veins and replacement style mineralization with silver-gold-zinc-lead values along a northwesterly trend. Decade's Red Cliff occurrence, currently being drilled, occurs in similar rocks, 5 km to the southeast, while the past producing Big Missouri Mine occurs 4 km to the southwest.

BonTerra's acquisition costs are a total of $32,000 and two million shares payable on exchange approval. The property is subject to a 2-per-cent net smelter return royalty, of which one-half (1 per cent) may be purchased back for $1-million.

The company will be paying a finders fee on this transaction and will be subject to a hold period as required by applicable securities laws.

The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 and reviewed on behalf of the company by Gerald G. Carlson, P. Eng., a qualified person.
