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 and its partner Below Exploration Inc. (51%/49%) are 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 early 2022 followed-up on drilled intervals of high-grade, high metal-tenor massive sulphides (0.75 metres grading 5.2% Ni, 1.2% Cu in hole LM 21-07 and 0.80 metres grading 4.8% Ni, 1.1% Cu in hole LM 21-13) and disseminated sulphides (5.3 metres of 0.6% Ni, 0.6% Cu in hole LM 21-01). Drilling is planned to resume following additional land acquisition.
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 magnetic and VTEM targets in the Great Lakes Tectonic Zone, which are prospective for high-grade Ni/Cu/PGM 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 preserved low-sulphidation epithermal system. In 2021, geological mapping and CSAMT surveys 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 is currently drill-testing the Coyote Sinter property.
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. Bitterroot's management has received drill permits from the BLM.
