Bitterroot Resources Ltd.Bitterroot Resources Ltd. is pursuing precious metals deposits in Arizona and Nevada and base metals in British Columbia. The Company also holds a 49.9% interest in a nickel/copper exploration joint venture in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
In British Columbia, Bitterroot plans to drill-test the Summit and Summit West zones which host coincident and zoned zinc/silver/arsenic/molybdenum-in-soil anomalies. The targets are prospective for Carbonate Replacement Deposits in Nicola Group limestone and calcareous sediments. Drilling is planned for the summer of 2019, subject to permit revisions and consultation with the Westbank First Nation. The drill targets are road-accessable and located within recently logged areas.
In Arizona, Bitterroot holds an option on 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. In Nevada, the Company's management is reviewing potential property acquisitions.
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.
