Bitterroot Resources Consolidates Ni-Cu-PGM Land Holdings in Michigan
|Bitterroot Resources Ltd. (BTT, TSX-V) and Prime Meridian Resources Corp.'s (PMR, TSX-V), Michigan subsidiaries have entered into an agreement whereby Bitterroot will purchase Prime Meridian's entire interest in a 40-acre minerals lease in Baraga County, Michigan.|
The road-accessible "Loosemore" property is located in the Baraga Basin, some 25 km west of, and in a similar geological setting, as Lundin Mining's high-grade Eagle nickel-copper mine, which currently hosts NI 43-101-compliant Proven and Probable Mineral Reserves of 5.1 Mt @ 3.1% Ni and 2.6% Cu (source: www.lundinmining.com ). The highly prospective Baraga Basin hosts several other nickel and copper sulphide-bearing ultramafic intrusions, including Lundin Mining's Eagle East and Rio Tinto's Bovine Igneous Complex. Ni-Cu-PGM-mineralized boulders have been discovered in gravel pits less than 2 km east and south of the Loosemore property.
One drill hole was completed on the Loosemore property by previous lessor Kennecott Exploration Company, a subsidiary of Rio Tinto, in the late 1990's. The drill hole intersected disseminated chalcopyrite mineralization in olivine gabbro and associated mafic/ultramafic intrusive rocks. This encouraging drill hole has not been followed up with additional drilling or geophysics. Bitterroot's management believes that the Loosemore property has potential to host the feeder zone of a multi-phased mafic intrusive system, as suggested by core sample analyses and the presence of magnetic and gravity highs centred on the Loosemore property. Bitterroot is planning to conduct detailed ground magnetic and gravity surveys on the property in late 2014, prior to drilling in early 2015, subject to financing.
Bitterroot will issue 500,000 units to Prime Meridian, with each unit consisting of one Bitterroot common share and one common share purchase warrant, exercisable for two years at C$0.10, plus make a one-time C$7,500 cash payment to Prime Meridian.. The Companies expect to complete the transaction within 15 days of receipt of acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
