BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSXV: BTR; FSE: 9BR) ("BonTerra" or the "Company") announces that Abitex Resources Inc. ("Abitex") has optioned an additional claim totaling 12 hectares to BonTerra. This claim has been added to the Eastern Extension property which is the subject to the Option Agreement dated September 15, 2010 between BonTerra and Abitex.

Previous drill holes completed by the Company were drilled just east of the claim boundary. These holes include BA-10-01 and BA-10-03. BA-10-01 assayed 17.06 grams/tonne over 13.50 metres as disclosed on November 9(th), 2010. To date some drill holes collared by BonTerra have surrounded the claim on two sides. The option of this additional claim by the Company offers the potential to drill to the west and northwest into a new zone. Recently the Company has drilled two holes towards the west. These two holes will be submitted for assay this week totaling six holes in the lab at this time.

Mitchell Adam, President, states, "This optioned claim expands BonTerra's interest in the Eastern Extension property, which offers the Company greater flexibility in drilling and the potential for expanding the known gold zones."

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 BonTerra by Thomas Clarke, Pr.Sci.Nat., a qualified person and Director of BonTerra.
