Vancouver, BC - March 22, 2011: BonTerra Resources Inc. (BTR: TSXV; FSE: 9BR) (the "Company", "BonTerra") has recently mobilized a new NQ sized drill rig capable of drilling to depths of 1500 metres on the Eastern Extension property. In addition, the Company has brought 800 barrels of fuel to the site to enable an aggressive summer drill program once the current phase of winter drilling is complete. This was done before the winter road breaks up to ensure the Company can continue advancing the property in the summer months. BonTerra continues to utilize AlXtreme Drilling of Val d'Or, Quebec for its currently ongoing drill program.

In addition the Company has completed drilling 7 more holes in the current drill program totaling approximately 1400 metres. These 7 holes have been logged, sampled and sent to be assayed for gold by ALS Chemex in Val d'Or, Quebec. The Company awaits assays for these holes.

Mitchell Adam, President, states, "BonTerra is in the process of making sure the logistics of the coming spring breakup allow us to utilize the camp rig and crew and continue to develop the Eastern Extension drilling without delay. BonTerra has brought in a large rig and decided to spend over a quarter of a million dollars on fuel delivery alone to guarantee we can keep the drills turning on the Eastern Extension. The goal of the Company is to test the outer reaches of the gold zones with the intent on focusing on infill drilling in the future."

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 Thomas Clarke, Pr.Sci.Nat, a qualified person and a Director of BonTerra. The drill program and sampling is being supervised on behalf of the Company by Geologica Inc. of Val d'Or, Quebec.
