Bitterroot Resources’ Coyote Sinter Project Update
December 14, 2022
Bitterroot Resources Ltd. (symbol BTT, TSX-V) has received assay results from three holes drilled on the Coyote Sinter epithermal gold/silver project in Elko County, Nevada. Coyote Sinter is located in the Independence District, several miles south of the Jerritt Canyon mine property and 5 miles east of the historic Tuscarora mining district.
The Company’s contractor drilled 885.66 metres in three PQ/HQ core holes along 700 metres of strike length of the Chevron fault. The first hole encountered excessive water inflows and was terminated and plugged short of the target depth at 205.89 metres. The second (376.95 metres total depth) and third holes (302.82 metres total depth) intersected the Chevron fault below the previous anomalous shallow reverse circulation drilling. These two holes intersected a large fault structure which hosts moderately anomalous levels of mercury, arsenic and antimony in the target zone. Precious metals content was weakly anomalous, suggesting that the sinter exposed on the property is likely a distal outflow from the main upflow zone of the epithermal system. No further work is planned at this time.
