Drilling Paused

 Bitterroot Resources Ltd. (BTT, TSX-V) has paused its drilling program due to the imposition of seasonal County road load restrictions, which make it impossible to transport drilling equipment and water to the Company's drill sites. Drilling will resume when the load restrictions are lifted in approximately eight weeks, subject to weather conditions. The timing of the imposition of the load restrictions is based on historical weather patterns and do not necessarily reflect this year's persistent and ongoing cold weather in the Upper Midwest.

To date, the Company's "Target H" nickel/copper/PGM target in Michigan has been tested with one 316 metre drill hole. This hole intersected metasediments of the Michigamme Formation. Core logging is underway and analyses will be done on selected intervals. Downhole geophysical surveys are also being done.

Aditional information on the Company's nickel/copper/PGM targets in Michigan is available at www.bitterrootresources.com.
