Welcome to Bitterroot Resources Ltd.
Bitterroot Resources Ltd.'s management is focused on discovering high-grade, magmatic nickel-copper-PGM deposits in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and high-grade epithermal gold-silver deposits in Nevada. The Company's projects are located in road-accessible North American locations, giving shareholders exposure to relatively low-cost exploration with potential for large gains.
The Company and its partner Below Exploration Inc. (51%/49%) are currently exploring the LM Property for high-grade nickel-copper-platinum-palladium deposits similar to Lundin Mining's Eagle and Eagle East mines in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Drilling in the summer of 2021 has been following-up on initial drill results which intersected high metal-tenor massive sulphides (0.71 metres of 5.16% Ni, 1.18% Cu, 0.82 g/T PGMs+Au) and disseminated sulphides (4.8 metres of 0.58% Ni, 0.62% Cu, 0.33 g/T PGMs+Au).
Bitterroot also holds a 49.9% interest in a seperate magmatic nickel-copper-PGM exploration joint venture with Altius Minerals Corporation (50.1%), which covers more than 360 square miles in the same region. The joint venture has identified nine high-priority VTEM targets which are prospective for high-grade Ni/Cu/PGM deposits similar to the Eagle deposits.
In Nevada, Bitterroot has leased, with an option to purchase, the Coyote Sinter project in Elko County, Nevada. The Coyote Sinter property hosts a fully-preserved low-sulphidation epithermal system. Geological mapping conducted in the summer of 2021 has identified geochemically anomalous hot spring vent areas and fault structures, the roots of which are prospective for bonanza-grade epithermal gold/silver minineralization. Bitterroot's management has received drill permits from the BLM and plans to drill-test these targets at the optimal 200-400 metres depth below the sinter horizon (paleosurface).
Bitterroot also holds an option to purchase the Castle West gold-silver project in Esmeralda County, Nevada. The Castle West property hosts geochemically anomalous, extensively altered welded tuffs with mineralized silicified structures. These untested silicified structures are prospective for high-grade, bonanza-style (Hishikari-type) gold-silver deposits at shallow depths in underlying metasediments.
Drilling is planned on both Nevada gold/silver projects in 2021, subject to financing.
