BLACK TUSK RESOURCES INC. COMPLETES FIRST DIAMOND DRILL HOLE ON THE MCKENZIE EAST GOLD PROJECT, VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc.'s first drill hole has been completed on the McKenzie East gold property located north of Val d'Or, Que. Hole MKE 21-01 intersected bedrock within 20 metres of surface and cored down to a 402-metre total length. Drill core is currently being logged and sampled at the Black Tusk facility located near to the property. Samples will be sent to ALS Laboratory located in Val d'Or.
The start-up of the first drill hole was personally observed by Black Tusk's chief executive officer Richard Penn and chief financial officer Roman Rubin, as well as chief geologist Perry Grunenberg. Tusk's management team also visited the core processing facility at the property as part of its project tour undertaken during the week of Jan. 25 to Jan. 29, 2021.
Drill hole MKE 21-01 was designed to test an induced polarization (IP) chargeability high with associated moderate resistivity. This hole was proposed as a primary target by local geophysical consultant Abitibi Geophysics, which displays as a highlighted target on its IP profiles.
The company is very excited about the potential for new discovery through diamond drilling on the McKenzie East gold property. This particular area may be considered underexplored when compared with adjacent areas of the Abitibi region although the McKenzie Break mineral resource is located within two kilometres west of the Black Tusk project, and other mineralized zones have been identified to the east and west of the project area. It is believed that the swampy ground conditions within much of the property have hindered modern exploration. Black Tusk has overcome these obstacles, and has been able to mobilize a diamond drill onto the property to test targets as identified by magnetometer and induced polarization surveys, and MMI (mobile metal ion) soil sampling.
Black Tusk plans to continue diamond drilling a number of targets identified by its geophysical and geochemical surveys. The targeted drill holes are within an area of approximately one kilometre by 700 metres along the geologic trend of the area. Pad and access construction is continuing as the drilling progresses.
The Black Tusk winter 2021 diamond drilling program is supervised by VD Geo Service, based in Val d'Or, including Black Tusk company director Dr. Mathieu Piche, OGQ.
