Bonterra is a Canadian gold exploration company with a large balanced portfolio of exploration and mining assets including the Gladiator, Barry and Moroy deposits, Urban-Barry Mill and multiple highly prospective exploration prospects. Bonterra controls the only permitted gold mill in the region with a large land position of approximately 20,815 hectares in the Urban Barry Camp. Bonterra is located in the mining-friendly province of Quebec, within the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, advancing to the completion of a property-wide NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate in Q2 of 2019.
This presentation contains "forward-looking information" within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation. Any information herein with respect to predictions, expectations, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events that are not historical facts may be "forward-looking statements” that are based on Bonterra’s current expectations, estimates and projections. This forward-looking information includes information with respect to the planned exploration programs, the costs and expenditures for the upgrading of the Bonterra mill and timelines, the potential growth in mineral resources, and other information that is based on forecasts of future operational or financial results, estimates of amounts not yet determinable and assumptions of management. Exploration results that include drill results on wide spacings may not be indicative of the occurrence of a mineral deposit; such results do not provide assurance that further work will establish sufficient grade, continuity, metallurgical characteristics and economic potential to be classed as a category of mineral resource. The potential quantities and grades of drilling targets are conceptual in nature and, there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource, and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the targets being delineated as mineral resources.
Forward-looking information is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause Bonterra’s actual results, level of activity or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. Such factors include, but are not limited to: uncertainties related to exploration and development; the ability to raise sufficient capital to fund exploration and development or the upgrading of the mill; changes in economic conditions or financial markets; increases in input costs; litigation, legislative, environmental and other judicial, regulatory, political and competitive developments; or inability to obtain permits encountered in connection with exploration activities or the mill expansion; and labour relations matters. This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect our forward-looking information. These and other factors should be considered carefully, and readers should not place undue reliance on such forward-looking information.
Bonterra may, from time to time, make oral forward-looking statements and advises that the above paragraph and the risk factors described in this presentation and in the Company’s other documents filed with the Canadian securities authorities should be read for a description of certain factors that could cause the actual results of the Company to differ materially from those in the oral forward-looking statements. The forward-looking information and statements contained in this presentation are made as of the date hereof and the Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any oral or written forward-looking information or statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable securities laws.
Note on Technical Information
Pascal Hamelin, the Company's Vice President of Operations has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information contained in this presentation. Mr. Hamelin holds a bachelor's degree in engineering, is a member of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec and is a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") under Canadian legislation. The Company's Gladiator and Moroy properties do not contain any mineral resources as defined by NI 43-101. The Company uses a rigorous QA-QC analytical program according to industry standards. The analytical results were done by pyroanalysis (A.A.) at the Company’s laboratory. Blanks, duplicates and certified reference standards are inserted into the sample stream to monitor laboratory performance. The Company’s QA-QC analytical verification program requires that a minimum of 10% of the samples be audited at an independent laboratory. Theses audit assays were sent to ALS laboratory located in Val-d'Or, Quebec. The results of the audits are consistent with those obtained.
Certain information in this presentation regarding the presence of mineral deposits, and the size of such deposits is based on information that has been obtained from publicly available information and industry reports. Such reports generally state that the information contained therein has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable, but the accuracy or completeness of such information is not guaranteed. We have not independently verified or cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of that information and investors should use caution in placing reliance on such information. Results from other projects are provided for information purposes only and are not indicative of the results that may be obtained from the Company's properties.
