Bonterra Resources, based in Val d’Or, Quebec, has released a new resource estimate for its three projects – Gladiator, Barry and Moroy – in the Urban Barry camp about 200 km northeast of Val d’Or.
For all the deposits, the indicated resource is 3.2 million tonnes averaging 6.33 g/t gold and containing 643,000 oz. of gold. The inferred resource is 6.2 million tonnes averaging 7.04 g/t and containing 1.4 million oz.
Highlights for each deposit:
The Gladiator and Barry deposits are located on the Urban-Barry property. The Moroy deposit is located on the property of the former Bachelor gold mine and includes the Urban-Barry mill where all ore would be processed.
The mill is undergoing an expansion to 2,400 t/d by the second half of the year. The existing rod and ball mills and the 12-metre thickener are being removed. In their places, a SAG mill, two new ball mills, a gravity circuit, a 23-metre thickener, and five leaching tanks are being installed.
