BonTerra Continues Drilling

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BTR)(FRANKFURT:9BR) (the "Company", "BonTerra") is currently awaiting assays for five (5) deep 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. One of these holes was drilled to deepen the known high grade gold zones as discovered in BA-10-01 which assayed 17.06 grams/tonne ("g/t") over 13.50 metres as disclosed in a news release dated November 9, 2010. BonTerra hopes similar assays can be intercepted in this new drill hole.

The Company is also deepening the high grade gold zones intercepted in BA-10-08 which assayed 14.84 g/t over 7.00 metres as disclosed in a news release dated January 12, 2011. To date, the Company has drilled a total of 32 drill holes totaling nearly 7,000 metres on the Property.

BonTerra intends to drill three holes under the lake from the peninsula with the goal to extend the peninsula zone to the west. This assayed 8.01 g/t over 14.00 metres as disclosed in a news release dated February 17, 2011. BonTerra is working towards establishing a NI 43-101 compliant resource calculation with respect to the Property.

Mitchell Adam, President, states, "BonTerra looks forward to receiving assays as it deepens the known high grade gold zones on the Property and working with Geologica toward developing a resource calculation."
