Vancouver, BC – February 2, 2017:  BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX-V: BTR, US: BONXF, FSE: 9BR1) (the “Company” or “BonTerra”) is pleased to announce positive drilling results from the “Rivage Gap Western Extension” of the Gladiator Deposit that continues to identify multiple high-grade horizons, as well as newly-discovered more broadly mineralized zones.

Highlights and Observations:

-- Hole BA-16-48 encountered multiple high grade intersections in the “Rivage Gap”, including intersections in the Main Zone and the Footwall Zone with the following results:

- 3.8 m grading 16.8 g/t Au  (Main Zone) at ~275 meters below surface.
- 1.0 m grading 14.9 g/t Au (Footwall Zone) at ~225 meters below surface.

-- Drilling at the “Rivage Gap”, a 600 meter long stretch of the Gladiator Deposit to the west contains limited drill information to-date, and continues to demonstrate excellent continuity in multiple horizons between the Gladiator Deposit and the Rivage Zone. The continuity identified at the Gladiator Deposit currently indicates a total drilled strike length to date on multiple horizons of 1,200 meters, and to a depth of 650 meters below surface. The Rivage Zone had previously been interpreted to be a distinct and separate zone. The Gladiator Deposit remains open in all directions.

-- Hole BA-16-47 also discovered a new gold zone to the south of the deposit at 300 meters below surface with 3 m of 2.0 g/t, as well as two mineralized zones of approximately 10 m at 0.6 g/t on either side of the new zone.

-- Two (2) drill rigs are currently operating with a third drill rig pending. Drilling is currently focused on the Deep East Zone and the Rivage Gap western side.

Dale Ginn, Vice-President Exploration of BonTerra, stated: “The Rivage Gap represents a significant opportunity to increase the overall size of the Gladiator deposit in multiple horizons.  Reworking the geological model by BonTerra has been successful in opening up the mineral potential in this section, and we are now confirming our interpretation from this drilling.  Our technical team is currently focused on this 600 meter plus stretch of the west side, and the Rivage area will be drilled intensly over the coming months, with a goal of increasing the overall size of the Deposit, its contained ounces, and thus rewarding our shareholders.”

*Stated lengths are core width as drilled, true widths have not yet been determined. Core axis angles of the intersection contacts and surrounding rock units average 55 degrees.

All intersections from the above table are located near the known western and deepest limits of the Rivage gap area of the Gladiator Deposit. The high grade Main and Footwall Zones are near the contact between mafic volcanic units and a mineralized felsic porphyritic intrusive.

BonTerra Resources Quick Facts:

-- 7,563-hectare (Gladiator Project) in the Urban-Barry Camp in Québec containing:

- Using a 4 g/t Au cut-off grade, the project currently contains an inferred resource of 905,000 tonnes, grading 9.37 g/t Au for 273,000 ounces of gold. Of note, ~90% of the worlds operating mines have an average gold grade less than 8 g/t. Mineral Resource Estimate and technical report filed July 27, 2012, Snowden Mining Consultants.
- 2016/17 Exploration/Resource Development Program underway – up to 25,000 meters utilizing minimum of two drill rigs at its 100% owned Gladiator Gold Project to expand current gold resource.

-- Resource Development Program underway at its 2,165-hectare (Larder Lake Gold Property) in the Cadillac-Larder Break camp in Ontario (refer to March 17, 2016 news release highlighting historical gold resource).
