Bitterroot Resources Increases Nighthawk Gold Project Size to 240 Claims, Announces C$250,000 Private Placement

May 1, 2024

Bitterroot Resources Ltd. (symbol BTT, TSX-V) has staked an additional 174 claims on its Nighthawk gold project, bringing the total to 240 claims, covering approximately 4,800 acres (19.4 sq. km). Nighthawk is located in Nevada’s Walker Lane district, adjacent to Highway 95, some 50 km west of Tonopah and 90 km southwest of Round Mountain. The east end of the claim block abuts Allegiant Gold’s Boss/Berg/Castle claims. The 100 percent-owned Nighthawk claims are situated on BLM-administered lands and are not subject to any underlying royalties.

Seven (7) multi-km long structural target areas have been identified on pediment with sporadic outcrops and thin alluvial cover. The Nighthawk claims are prospective for multi-million ounce, structurally-controlled oxide and sulphide gold/silver deposits like Silicon/Merlin, Round Mountain and Tonopah, all of which are in the Walker Lane structural trend.

Bitterroot’s aeromagnetic drone survey identified some 15 km strike-length of previously unknown and untested altered fault structures of the Walker Lane (NW) and Mina Deflection (NE) structural trends. The main NW-oriented structural target is mineralized on the nearby higher-elevation, previously held Castle West property, with abundant mercury/antimony and minor gold. This target has not been drill-tested on the favourable lower-elevation erosional level of the Nighthawk property. At the adjoining Boss Mine, gold/silver mineralization is mainly controlled by underexplored NE-trending structures. The intersection of the NW and NE-trending mineralized trends at Nighthawk is also untested by drilling. Prospecting has identified widespread mineralized angular quartz vein float throughout the Nighthawk claims. This mineralization is believed, at least in part, to be locally derived. Outcropping and inferred rhyolite domes at Nighthawk also host gold mineralization from trace to multi-grams gold/tonne. Details of the aeromagnetic targets, structural trends and float sampling can be viewed in the Nighthawk slide presentation on the Company’s website,

Mr. Robert (Rick) Streiff, CPG, is the Qualified Person responsible for this technical disclosure.
