BLACK TUSK COMPLETES PHASE 1 DRILLING AT GOLDEN VALLEY
Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK RESOURCES SHIP GOLDEN VALLEY DRILL CORE TO ALS LABS IN ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has completed phase 1 of diamond drilling on the Golden Valley project located in northwest Quebec. The program comprised of 1,458.2 metres over 11 holes within the property. The holes ranged from 137 to 201 metres in length. The drill holes were spread over an approximate four kilometre strike length within favorable geology. Drilling was designed to verify historic gold-bearing intercepts and to expand upon those intercepts, and to test geological and geophysical targets interpreted from existing regional data.
The drill core was logged at a facility located in Villebois, approximately 25 kilometres south of the Golden Valley Project.
Drill core samples were obtained at the logging facility by hydraulic splitter and were shipped to ALS Global Laboratory in Rouyn-Noranda. A total of 443 samples were taken to the lab. The samples are to be analyzed by fire assay for gold, and for 35 elements by ICP method. Core samples were obtained from a variety of geologic features noted in the core including quartz veins, sulphides (pyrite, pyrrhotite, and chalcopyrite), shear zones and other sections interpreted by the experienced core-logging geologist.
''We are extremely pleased with the progress so far on the Golden Valley Project. Phase One of the drill program has gone as planned and we expect to have first round of drill results back from the lab in the near-term" stated Black Tusk Resources CEO, Richard Penn.
After all of the sample results are returned, Black Tusk Resources, Golden Valley Project Geological Consultant, Dr. Mathieu Piche will be working with the Black Tusk geological team for planning of continued exploration, including a Stage 2 drilling program, to expand upon areas determined to be of significance.
Black Tusk personnel managed the drilling program under the direction of Geologist, Perry Grunenberg, OGQ. Local Quebec-based consulting groups were contracted to undertake core logging and core sampling at Black Tusk Resources facility located in Villebois, West Abitibi, Quebec.
The Golden Valley Project is located 26 kilometres south of the Hecla Mining Corp's Casa Berardi Mine and lies within the Abitibi Greenstone belt that is host to many world-class operating gold mines.
The property is accessed via existing major roads utilized for logging and mining, including the Casa Berardi Mine.
