Hackberry Silver Project -- Drill Program Update And Aeromagnetic Survey Completed

August 22, 2017

Bitterroot Resources Ltd.'s (BTT, TSX-V) drilling contractor plans to mobilize a drill rig to the Hackberry Silver Project, Mohave County, Arizona, starting September 5. Up to 2,000 metres (6,500 feet) of drilling will initially test targets on the patented mineral rights adjacent to the Hackberry Mine underground workings. Bitterroot's management is also preparing permit applications for drilling and access trail construction on several targets located on the adjacent unpatented mining claims.

Bitterroot's geophysical consultant has completed levelling, processing and interpreting recently-received aeromagnetic data collected over the Company's Hackberry silver property. Figures showing the aeromagnetic results are posted on .

The aeromagnetic survey was flown on lines spaced 50-metres (165 feet) apart, with terrain clearances generally ranging from 50 to 90 metres (165-295 feet). This detailed survey shows that the Hackberry mineralized trend is associated with a northwest/southeast-trending linear magnetic low. Along this linear magnetic low, the Hackberry Mine's underground workings coincide with a subtle magnetic high. Several similar magnetic features have been noted along strike, within a 900 metre (0.6 mile)-long interval, roughly centred on the Hackberry mine workings.

The Silver King mine is located 1.5 km (1 mile) northwest of the Hackberry Mine, on the same linear magnetic trend, coincident with a stronger magnetic low. Results from reconnaissance soil geochemical sampling lines have confirmed the mineralized nature of the Hackberry trend and several other associated structures.
