BonTerra Retains AGAT Labs for Validation Sampling on 15,000 Metre Drill Program in Quebec

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 10, 2011) - BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BTR) (FRANKFURT:9BR) (the "Company", "BonTerra") has retained a second laboratory, AGAT Laboratories of Mississauga, Ontario ("AGAT") to assay drill core samples along with ALS Chemex ("ALS"). AGAT is a fully accredited laboratory and conforms with the requirements of CAN-P-4E (ISO/IEC 17025:2005) and CAN-P-1579 by the Standards Council of Canada. AGAT is a specialized Canadian based lab with thirty (30) years of experience in providing comprehensive analytical services to the mining industry.

AGAT is being used to both assay new drill core samples from the final drill holes as well as to validate assay results received to date from ALS Chemex. Validation is the process whereby samples that assayed over 1 g/t gold are sent in for re-assay to verify the values received to date. This is in addition to the Company employing a full quality assurance and quality control ("QAQC") program. Sample validation is necessary for the completion of the NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource calculation for the Eastern Extension property (the "Property").

BonTerra should be finished drilling its 15,000 metre drill program by the end of November. Once the Company receives the final assay results from drill core including validation samples all efforts will focus on finalizing the compilation of database for all work completed to date. After this is completed, Geologica of Val d'Or, Quebec will complete the NI 43-101 compliant inferred gold resource calculation for the Property. Final holes are being completed and assays will be released when they become available.

Mitchell Adam, President states, "The Company is looking forward to completing the 2011 drill program and compiling all the assay data from the 15,000 metres of drilling completed over the past 12 months. Once we have completed our 43-101 inferred calculation, we will begin to budget and plan for a 2012 drill program with the focus of increasing the size and scope of the Eastern Extension project and prepare for winter drilling on the ice targets."
