VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 30, 2022 / Bitterroot Resources Ltd.'s (TSXV:BTT) management is pleased to announce that its drilling contractor has mobilized a drill rig, crew and support equipment to 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.
Drilling will consist of three 500 metre-long (-50 degrees) HQ-sized core holes, along 700 metres of strike length of the Chevron fault. The new holes will test below the previous shallow drilling, which intersected highly anomalous levels of gold, mercury, arsenic and antimony at depths of only 35-75 metres below surface. Three new holes are planned to intersect the Chevron fault approximately 200-250 metres deeper, where epithermal models suggest bonanza-grade gold and silver mineralization could occur. This initial drilling program is expected to be complete in 4-6 weeks. More information on the Coyote Sinter project is available on the Company's website at; https://bitterrootresources.com/projects/nevada/coyote-sinter-gold-property/
In addition, Bitterroot's US subsidiary has entered into minerals and surface leases on 280 acres of adjacent privately-owned lands. The Company now controls approximately three kilometres of prospective strike length on the Chevron fault, together with an untested parallel structure and several fault splays.
Mr. Rick Streiff, CPG, is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical content of this disclosure.
