New Manitoba Coal Exploration Applications
Bitterroot Resources Ltd. (BTT, TSX-V) has submitted additional Quarry (Coal) Exploration Permit applications to the Mines Branch of the Province of Manitoba's Department of Science, Technology, Energy and Mines. These applications cover an additional 11,605 hectares (~48 square miles) of road or railroad-accessible lands which host Lower Cretaceous coal-bearing strata of the lower Cretaceous Mannville/Swan River Group. Bitterroot's Quarry (Coal) Exploration Permits now cover approximately 25,400 hectares (~107 square miles) of prospective lands in the Pasquia and Swan River Basins.
Bitterroot's Turnberry Block is located approximately 5 kilometres north of Goldsource Mines Inc.'s Border Property, where two drill holes located 1.6 kilometres apart intersected over 22 metres of continuous coal within a 32 metre-thick, flat-lying coal-bearing interval.
The Mines Branch of the Province of Manitoba's Department of Science, Technology, Energy and Mines has posted the location of Bitterroot's Quarry Exploration Permit applications on its website. The new applications are currently being processed, with completion expected in approximately 12-14 weeks. There are no assurances that all of the applications will be granted. Bitterroot's management believes that the majority of the lands it has applied for will be available for coal exploration.
