Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – July 14, 2020 – Timberline Resources Corporation (OTCQB: TLRS; TSX-V: TBR) (“Timberline” or the “Company”) has dropped its option to earn an interest in the Elder Creek copper project in order to focus its Nevada exploration on the Eureka and Paiute district-scale gold properties on the prolific Battle Mountain–Eureka gold trend.

Timberline’s President and CEO, Steve Osterberg commented, “Our resources are best used to advance the Lookout Mountain gold resource and the prospective Windfall target, both at Eureka, as well as the substantial gold-bearing mineralized system at Paiute on Battle Mountain.”
