Bitterroot Resources (BTT, TSX-V) US subsidiary has received approval from the Bureau of Land Management to commence work on the Phase 2 drilling program on the Hackberry silver project in Mohave County, AZ. Construction of drill access roads has begun and drilling is planned to start in the next 10 days.

Three targets will be tested over the next two months by approximately 1,500 metres of core drilling in approximately six to nine holes. This work will test areas below the Silver King North, Silver King South and CMH targets which are located between 0.4 and 2.0 kilometres northwest of the Main Hackberry mine site, which was the focus of the Phase 1 drilling program completed in late 2017.

Underground workings were excavated over 100 years ago on high-grade silver-bearing veins at the Silver King North and Silver King South targets. The CMH target is a geophysical target which presents as a very strong magnetic low on the Hackberry mineralized trend, 400 metres northwest of the Main Hackberry mine.
