Vancouver, BC - November 2, 2011: BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BTR; FSE: 9BR) (the "Company", "BonTerra") released news earlier today regarding infill sampling on the Eastern Extension property (the "Property"). Both previously disclosed assays as well as newly received infill assays were used to calculate these amended drill intercepts. Infill sampling was conducted on previously un- sampled core as disclosed earlier today. The highest assays from the infill sampling program was 2.56 g/t gold over one metre in BA-10-08. One infill sample in BA-11-06 assayed up to 2.42 g/t gold over one metre. As disclosed earlier today, gold is primarily concentrated in previously sampled parts of the drill holes.

Geological Characteristics of the Gold Bearing Veins on the Eastern Extension

The target for all drilling on the Eastern Extension property is smoky quartz veins mineralized with sulphides (pyrite, pyrrhotite & chalcopyrite ± sphalerite ± visible gold). Sulphides commonly compose 1-10% of the mineralized zones and can be as high as 30% locally. Alteration is most commonly silica, carbonate, chlorite, tourmaline and sericite. The combination of quartz veins, tourmaline, alteration types and sulphides is ideal for gold mineralization in the area. Sphalerite present in the quartz veins appears to be associated with the highest grade gold zones on the property to date.

Qualified Person

This technical content of this press release has been reviewed and accepted by Thomas Clarke, Pr.Sci.Nat., a Director of BonTerra. Mr. Clarke is a Qualified Person under NI 43-101.

The sampling is being supervised on behalf of the Company by Geologica Inc. of Val d'Or, Quebec. These are sample results, taken from mineralized intervals of the drill holes. Depths and lengths are core lengths and not true widths. Gold intercepts disclosed in this news release are significant gold intercepts and not all the samples submitted for fire assay. 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 by the Company for future reference. The Company applies a full quality assurance and quality control program (QAQC) system for every batch of samples submitted to the lab (gold standard, sample duplicate and blank).
