VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 9, 2022 / Black Tusk Resources Inc. (“Black Tusk” or the “Company”) (CSE:TUSK) is pleased to announce that their geological and executive team will be conducting ground reconnaissance in Val d’Or, Quebec during the week of May 23. The team will undertake discussion and planning for the Black Tusk projects, including the MoGold, PG Highway, and McKenzie East properties located north of Val d’Or. The team plans to undertake site visits to each of the properties during the week of the company meetings.
On the MoGold property, the company has contracted TMC Geophysique to complete a deep-penetrating Pulse-EM (Time Domain Electromagnetic) survey. This survey is designed to test the geologic terrain for potential massive sulphide mineralization in an area where rock sampling has returned significant values of Cu, Ag, and Zn. The geology in this area suggests possible VMS mineralization (See Black Tusk news release dated March 7, 2022). The survey is expected to be in progress when the geologic team visits the property at end of May.
A second Pulse-EM survey is being contemplated for the PG Highway to cover an area where historic surface trenching uncovered near-massive to massive pyrite and pyrrhotite. This area was sampled by Black Tusk in 2021 returning several elevated gold results (See Black Tusk news release dated January 11, 2022). Magnetic surveying indicates that a magnetic high might be associated with the mineralization, extending for more than 1 kilometre outward from the area of sampling.
Black Tusk has obtained a permit to continue exploratory diamond drilling on their McKenzie East gold project. This drilling is slated to be undertaken in the winter months after freezing of wet areas where the drilling is proposed.
Exploration on the MoGold and PG Highway projects will continue through the spring and summer of 2022. Black Tusk is prepared to diamond drill targets generated from the ground geophysics and surface rock sampling. The drilling could commence as early as summer 2022.
The Black Tusk team will also discuss future exploration work that could be undertaken on their Golden Valley and Lorrain projects.
Black Tusk Quebec-based exploration programs are supervised by Dr. Mathieu Piché, OGQ, with office located north of Val d’Or. He is also a Black Tusk company director.
