Bitterroot Resources Identifies Summit Zone Carbonate Replacement (CRD) Targets
April 1, 2019
Following a review of Bitterroot Resources Ltd.'s (BTT, TSX-V) large database of geochemical, geophysical and geological data from the 100%-owned North Brenda claims in southern British Columbia, management has identified several areas with potential to host Zinc-Silver-bearing Carbonate Replacement Deposits (CRD) in Nicola Group limestones and calcareous argillites. The Brenda Mo-Cu mine is located only 3 km SE of the strongest soil geochemical anomaly, known as the Summit Zone. The Summit Zone is a zinc, arsenic, molybdenum and silver-in-soil geochemical anomaly covering a 1.2 km x 0.5 km area which is underlain by thin glacial till and folded Nicola Group sediments which are cut by granitic intrusions. The project area hosts many logging roads and cut blocks and is crossed by a major powerline and Highway 97C. Following consultation with the Westbank First Nation and BC MEMPR permit amendments, geophysical surveys (AMT) and drilling of the Summit Zone and surrounding targets is planned in the summer of 2019. Additional information on the Summit Zone CRD targets can be found in the slide presentation posted on the Company's website, www.bitterrootresources.com.
