Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK RESOURCES INC. RECEIVES PERMIT FOR PHASE II DIAMOND DRILLING ON THE MCKENZIE EAST PROJECT, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has been issued a permit for phase II of diamond drilling on the McKenzie East gold property located north of Val d'Or, Que. The Black Tusk geological team concluded that the results from the 2020 to 2021 drilling program warrants continued exploration on the property. The phase II program will continue to test the promising results obtained from the phase I drilling, as well as testing other geophysical targets delineated from ground and airborne surveys conducted on the property in 2020. A permit to allow for the construction of 15 drill pads with supporting access has been approved.
In early 2021, Black Tusk completed an eight-hole diamond drilling program as an initial testing of the targets on the property. Results included 1.185 grams per tonne gold over one metre from hole MKE-21-01. As well, several intercepts containing greater than 0.5 g/t were returned from holes MKE-21-03, MKE-21-06 and MKE-21-08 (see news release dated July 13, 2021). The results of the early 2021 diamond drilling program indicate that gold is present within veins and altered rock cored on the McKenzie East claims.
The company will be soliciting tenders for drilling from companies based in the Val d'Or area. Drilling is expected to begin once the ground conditions allow for travel over generally wet areas, likely in early 2022.
The Black Tusk-McKenzie East program is undertaken and supervised by VD Geo Service, based in Val d'Or, including Black Tusk company director Dr. Mathieu Piche, OGQ.
