BonTerra Resources Inc.: Drilling Update Urban-Barry & Eastern Extension Properties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2010) - BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BTR) (FRANKFURT:9BR) (the "Company", "BonTerra") announces drilling continues on its Urban-Barry Property in the Urban-Barry Greenstone Belt of Quebec. The first drill hole (BU-10-01) targets the western tip of an intrusion as defined by the ground magnetic survey. At the tip of the intrusion are two crossing structures (ENE-WSW & NW-SE). The hole is targeting a metamorphic alteration zone around the intrusion where these two structures cross. The hole (BU-10-01) is situated in the northeastern sector of the Urban-Barry Property. Geologica Inc. of Val d'Or, Québec is responsible for overseeing the drill program on behalf of the Company. Since 1985, Geologica Inc., a diverse mining exploration consulting company, has worked on over 500 exploration projects.

The company has submitted drill permit applications for its Eastern Extension property which it has recently optioned from Abitex Resources. BonTerra expects to be in receipt of this second drill permit for the Eastern Extension property soon. The primary drill target of the company on the Eastern Extension Property will be zone 2 which was identified by Xemac Resources through diamond drilling in 1997, 1998 and 2001. In 1998, the strike of zone 2 was said to be 450 feet (137.16 metres) from the surface to a depth of 300 feet (91.44 metres). Zone 2 is hosted by a contact related ENE striking, SSE dipping shear zone which has been intruded by a narrow conformable felsic and siliceous intrusive. Gold mineralization in Zone 2 is primarily found as free visible millimetric grains in quartz veins. The best mineralization is found in these quartz veins which are located at the boundaries of the felsic intrusive within the shear zones. The company anticipates splitting the 2000 metre drill program (estimated at 5-10 drill holes) over both the Urban-Barry and Eastern Extension properties.

While the company is awaiting drill permits for the Eastern Extension Property it will continue drilling the Urban-Barry Property and conduct channel sampling on the Eastern Extension Property. The company will channel sample in an old pit (dimension of 15 X 30 metres and ≤ 2 metres of overburden for a total area of 450 m2 of stripped outcrop) on the Eastern Extension Property. Sampling will focus on exposed mineralized quartz-carbonate vein structures as well as conducting other pre-drilling work and target selection. This way once the company receives the drill permit for the Eastern Extension Property it is drill ready with targets already selected.

The 100% owned Urban Barry and recently optioned Eastern Extension property are located approximately 170 km NE of Val-d'Or and 125 km SW of Chibougamau in the Urban, Barry and Bailly townships in James Bay, Quebec. Neighboring Companies in the region are Metanor Resources, Amseco, Beaufield, Eagle Hill, Glen Eagle, Urbana and Freewest, Murgor and Noront.
