Bitterroot's North Brenda property is located 50 km southeast of Merritt and 40 km west of Kelowna in southwestern British Columbia. North Brenda has the potential to host high-grade gold-silver deposits in the Pennask batholith and Tertiary intrusions.

Excavator trenching of gold-in-soil anomalies in 2009 identified previously unknown, narrow, high-grade, gold-bearing veins coincident with a magnetic lineament. The mineralized structure was traced in trenches over a 170-metre strike length within altered granodiorite host rocks. The magnetic lineament and coincident soil anomalies occur along a two (2) km-long trend known as the "Plateau Zone".

In October 2010, a 4,000 line-kilometre, high resolution aeromagnetic survey was flown over the North Brenda property. The survey identified several prominent magnetic lineaments (structural targets) that coincide with anomalous levels of gold, silver, arsenic and/or base metals-in-soil.

Drill-testing of the Plateau Zone is planned in late 2017, following receipt of permits.

The North Brenda property has excellent infrastructure, with many new logging roads and cut blocks providing access across the relatively gentle topography. In addition, a four-lane highway and major power line cross the southern portion of the North Brenda claims.
