BonTerra Resources Inc. [BTR-TSXV, BONXF-OTCQB] recently announced that it has entered into an option agreement with Durango allowing Bonterra to earn a 100% interest in Durango’s Trove Windfall Lake property, which is located in the Windfall-Urban Gold Camp district in northern Quebec.
The Trove property is a direct extension of the south west mineralized trend that BonTerra is currently exploring on its Gladiator gold deposit and Coliseum gold property.

The Gladiator Project consists of three properties, including West Arena, East Arena, and Coliseum. All are located close to each other.
On February 27, 2018, Durango said the renewal for the Trove property is now being processed with the Ministry of Energy & Natural Resources.
