Here is a silly example. More general advise can be found 
here: -help m1_ado-

*-------------- begin example ------------
mata: mata clear
sysuse auto, clear

void foo(string scalar b) {
	bb =st_matrix(b)
	bb = 2:*bb
	st_matrix("b", bb)

program drop _all
program define silly, rclass
	reg mpg foreign
	matrix b = e(b)
	mata: foo("b")
	return scalar b1 = el(b,1,1)
	return scalar b2 = el(b,1,2)
bootstrap b1=r(b1) b2=r(b2), reps(100): silly
*-------------- end example -----------------
