Bitterroot Resources Ltd.Bitterroot Resources Ltd. is exploring for precious metals in Arizona and British Columbia. The Company also holds a 49.9% interest in a nickel/copper exploration joint venture in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
In Arizona, Bitterroot is exploring the PCM claim group in Mohave County, Arizona. The PCM claims host several gold/silver mineralized quartz-carbonate veins occurring within a 300 metre-wide zone along approximately three kilometres of strike length on the road-accessible northern extension of the Hackberry mineralized trend. Bitterroot currently controls 81 unpatented claims in the target area. Surface channel sampling conducted in the spring of 2018 confirmed the presence of significant gold/silver mineralization (see June 7, 2018 news release and September 5, 2018 slide deck). In order to define drill targets, additional geologic mapping and sampling is planned in the fall of 2018.
In British Columbia, Bitterroot drilled 9 holes the west end of the road-accessible "Plateau Zone", a 2 km-long zone hosting high-grade gold-silver veins and gold-silver-arsenic-in-soil anomalies. Drill results are pending.
In Michigan, Bitterroot owns a 49.9% interest in more than 360 square miles of mineral rights in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Bitterroot's partner Altius Minerals Corporation currently owns 50.1% of the Michigan mineral rights and has the option to earn up to 80% by funding C$7.5 million of exploration expenditures prior to September 2025. Bitterroot and Altius' management have identified several targets which are prospective for Ni/Cu/PGM-bearing sulphide deposits similar to Lundin Mining's high-grade Eagle deposit. Altius is the operator of the Michigan joint venture.
