BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSXV: BTR; FSE: 9BR) (the "Company", "BonTerra") announces the continued progression of its second phase of drilling on the Eastern Extension property. Two drill holes were completed before Christmas. The core has been logged and is being split and sent for assay.

These two recently completed holes were drilled to the west of the first three holes which returned gold assay values up to 77.8 grams to tonne in November. It is the goal of the Company to focus phase two of drilling on extending the strike length of the known high grade gold zone. These two recently completed holes appear to share similar geological characteristics of the first holes hosting high grade gold mineralization as disclosed in a news release dated November 9, 2010. The Company also reports the completion of expanding its camp on the Eastern Extension property in preparation for significant winter drilling.

Mitchell Adam, President, states, "We are enthusiastic about continuing to extend the high grade gold zone on the Eastern Extension property. This is the primary focus of BonTerra Resources."

The Company also expects to be in receipt of a NI 43-101 Technical report for the Eastern Extension property once assays for the two recently completed holes are received in January. At this time the Company is defining its strategy for drilling the property in 2011 including the possibility of utilizing two rigs.

BonTerra has chosen to employ 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. Geologica Inc. of Val d'Or, Québec is responsible for overseeing the drill and sampling program on behalf of the Company.

The Eastern Extension property is located approximately 170 km NE of Val-d'Or and 125 km SW of Chibougamau in the Barry and Bailly townships in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, Québec. BonTerra's Urban-Barry property is situated just west of the Eastern Extension property. Neighboring companies in the region are Metanor, Amseco, Beaufield, Eagle Hill, Glen Eagle, Urbana and Freewest, Murgor and Noront. The Company has an option to earn 100% of the Eastern Extension property subject to a 2% NSR.

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 the Company.
