VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 30, 2020 / Black Tusk Resources Inc. ('Black Tusk' or the 'Company) (CNSX:TUSK)(OTC PINK:BTKRF)(FSE:0NB) is pleased to announce that the company has contracted Forage Val d'Or Inc to undertake diamond drilling on the company's 100% owned McKenzie East Gold project located immediately north of Val d'Or, Quebec.
Forage Val d'Or is a local-based contractor with knowledge and experience of drilling within the region. The contract is for 3,000 metresof drilling, of which a minimum 2500 metres will be drilled on the McKenzie East Gold project. Black Tusk also intends to complete a number of test holes on the Lorrain Property located in western Quebec,near Lorrainville.
Black Tusk's geological team have determined a number of high priority drill targets on the McKenzie East Gold Property that will be the focus of initial drilling. The company has obtained permits to drill from up to 23 drill pads on the property, and is fully funded to continued drilling upon receiving successful results.
At the Lorrain Property, the Company will utilize several hundred metres of drilling to verify and expand upon historic drill hole LA-01-06, where drill logs reported very significant intercepts of multiple elements including platinum, palladium, silver, copper and nickel hosted in ultramafic intrusive rocks. A weighted average calculation based upon the data provided gives 13.2 metres of just below 1 gram per tonne combined platinum and palladium, with 3 grams per tonne silver, 0.59 percent copper and 0.6 percent nickel (see news release dated Oct 19, 2020)
'We are eager to begin drilling these exciting new targets developed from our work on the McKenzie East and Lorrain projects' says President Richard Penn. 'The McKenzie East has a favorable location and geologic setting, and the results of our magnetic survey, IP survey, and MMI soil sampling all point in the direction of several high priority drill targets.'
Drilling is to commence this winter, with expected start-up date on the McKenzie East Gold project on January 15, 2021. In the interim, Black Tusk will prepare winter road access and drill pad construction for the McKenzie East drill program, as well as preparation of the core logging and processing facility.
