Bitterroot Increases Ownership Of Mineral Creek Project To 75 Percent

 Bitterroot Resources Ltd. (BTT, TSX-V) has increased its ownership interest in the high-grade Mineral Creek gold project near Port Alberni, British Columbia to 75 percent. Bitterroot has earned its 75 percent interest in the 6,960 hectare (17,200 acre) Mineral Creek property by completing over C$2,000,000 of exploration expenditures, making cash payments totaling C$260,000 and issuing 650,000 common shares to the vendor over a four year period.

In 2009, Bitterroot and its partner, Mineral Creek Ventures Inc., plan to;

  1. continue exploring the high-grade Ember and Linda veins with a program of close-spaced drilling designed to establish a resource compliant with NI 43-101 reporting standards,
  2. continue bulk sampling, processing and recovering gold from mineralized vein material from the Linda and other veins under existing permits which allow for extraction of up to 5,000 tonnes of material,
  3. initiate the acquisition of permits to mine and process, by gravity-based recovery techniques, larger tonnages of high-grade gold-bearing vein material,
  4. subject to financing, drill-test additional targets identified by previous drilling, prospecting and recently completed VTEM airborne geophysical surveys.
Field work is currently expected to begin in April and continue until November, as snow conditions allow.
