Vancouver, BC - April 28, 2011: BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BTR; FSE: 9BR) (the "Company", "BonTerra") is in receipt of gold assays for an additional four drill holes on the Eastern Extension Gold Project ("the Property"). The Property is located 170km northeast of Val d'Or, Quebec in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt.

The Company completed four (4) holes on the ice. These holes were drilled to test a large Induced Polarity ("IP") anomaly. This anomaly appears to be a broad gold bearing shear zone approximately 550 metres in length. Shear zones are prime targets for gold concentration. Significant gold values are shown in table 1 below. The Company plans on continuing exploration drilling to make the gold zones larger. The IP survey is one of the tools being used to plan future drilling.

The Company is awaiting assays from three (3) additional holes drilled on land in the eastern zone as well as one (1) deep hole under the main zone that is nearing completion.

Since August 2010, the Company has drilled thirty (30) holes totaling approximately 6,500 metres. Over the past eight months, BonTerra's drill program has returned gold assays on 29 of 31 holes and developed a greater understanding of the potential of the Property. BonTerra continues to hit gold on the property throughout its ongoing drill program. After a week off during spring break up, drill crews are once again on the Property. The project continues to grow in size with continued drilling at this time.

Mitchell Adam, President, states, "BonTerra is close to outlining a strike length of gold mineralization a half a kilometer in length. These ongoing drill results coupled with our infrastructure, stockpiled fuel and our commitment to expand the gold zones cements BonTerra as a significant player in the eastern Abitibi region of Quebec."

Qualified Person

This press release has been reviewed 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 zones of the drill hole. Depths and lengths are core lengths and not true widths. 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. 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 for future reference. The Company applies a full quality assurance and quality control (QAQC) system for every batch of samples submitted to the lab. The QAQC samples include a standard, duplicate and blank.
