Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK RESOURCES INC. COMPLETES DIAMOND DRILLING ON THE MCKENZIE EAST PROJECT, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has completed the initial phase of diamond drilling on the McKenzie East gold property located north of Val d'Or, Que. The company completed eight diamond drill holes totalling 2,584 metres.
Dr. Mathieu Piche, OGQ, oversees core processing on the McKenzie East project. His preliminary observations indicate that the area of drilling by holes MKE21-03, MKE21-04 and MKE21-08 has intersected bedrock with characteristics conducive to gold mineralization. This includes a small grain of visible gold observed in hole MKE21-03 (see news release dated Feb. 15, 2021).
However, the reader is cautioned that the presence of visible gold and other indicators in core does not assure positive assay results when processed at the laboratory.
The eight diamond drill holes completed on the property tested a variety of 3-D induced polarization (IP) and magnetic geophysical targets combined with mobile metal ion soil sampling results. The area of drilling MKE21-03, 04 and 08 tested the margin of an approximate 500-metre elongate magnetic high feature with moderate associated IP anomalies.
Drill core is currently being logged and sampled at the Black Tusk secure facility located near the property. Samples are being taken directly to ALS Laboratory located in Val d'Or. Samples are continuously under custody of the Black Tusk team members until delivered to the lab. Black Tusk undertakes quality assurance/quality control procedures including insertion of blanks and standards at regular intervals into the sample stream.
Initial laboratory results from core sampling are expected in the following weeks.
Black Tusk is now in the process of moving the diamond drill to its Lorrain PGE property, located near Lorrainville, Que., approximately 230 kilometres by road southwest of Val d'Or. Drilling is expected to begin there later next week.
"The company is very pleased with the efficient manner in which this drill program was completed," says Richard Penn, chief executive officer.
Perry Grunenberg, PGeo, a qualified person as that term is defined under NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this news release. Mr. Grunenberg is also a director of the company.
