BLACK TUSK COMPLETES GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY AT PG HIGHWAY
Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK RESOURCES INC. COMPLETES AIRBORNE MAGNETOMETER SURVEY AND ROCK SAMPLING ON THE MOGOLD AND PG HIGHWAY PROJECTS, VAL-DA OR, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has completed drone magnetometer surveys over its PG Highway and MoGold projects located north of Val-d'Or, Que. Geophysique TMC was contracted to complete the surveys. A total of 153 line kilometres was flown utilizing Vision 4K unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV-drone) technology with a Scintrex Cs-Vl cesium vapor magnetometer. The results of the survey create highly detailed geophysical images to assist in geological and structural interpretation of the underlying bedrock. Integrated with historic results of rock sampling and diamond drilling, several exploration targets are apparent for the claim blocks.
Black Tusk's MoGold gold project and PG Highway PGE project comprise adjoining claims covering 2,400 hectares. Black Tusk's geologic team headed by Mathieu Piche, PhD, OGQ, conducted reconnaissance level geological surveys with associated rock sampling over the two properties. The objective of this first pass over the claim blocks was to sample historically documented mineralized areas as well as prospect for potentially new mineralized zones. A total of 108 rock samples were obtained and submitted to ALS Laboratory in Val-d'Or for analysis. Results are expected within one month.
The Black Tusk geologic team reports that its reconnaissance included locating historic trenching on the PG Highway property. Rock samples from these trenches contained significant sulphide mineralization, consistent with that described in the historic reports. Historic diamond drilling of this mineralized zone returned up to 9.6 metres of near-massive to massive pyrite and pyrrhotite within basaltic rocks (see previous news release). The TMC magnetometer survey clearly maps a greater than 600-metre elongate magnetic high that is suspected to be associated with pyrrhotite mineralization.
The Black Tusk geologic team also undertook reconnaissance on the MoGold claims, including samples in and around the historic Boily-Berube mineral showing. The Boily-Berube showing consists of a massive vein of cherty quartz containing fine grains of pyrite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite (see previous news release). The veins trend along the western contact of a quartz porphyry intrusion highly mineralized with very fine-grained pyrite. The team reports that outcrops that were sampled contain pyrrhotite and pyrite. A variety of magnetic features were returned from the TMC survey, many of which require further follow-up.
The Black Tusk team are investigating and sampling historically reported mineralization for evaluation for multiple elements including base metals, precious metals, and platinum group elements (PGE). The Black Tusk exploration programs in Quebec are supervised by VD Geo Service based in Val-d'Or, including Black Tusk company director Dr. Mathieu Piche, OGQ.
Perry Grunenberg, PGeo, a qualified person as that term is defined under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approval the technical data disclosed in this press release.
