BLACK TUSK CONTRACTS GEOPHYSIQUE TMC FOR MOGOLD SURVEY
Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK RESOURCES INC. TO COMPLETE DEEP-PENETRATING PULSE E-M SURVEY AT MOGOLD PROJECT, VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has contracted Geophysique TMC to complete a deep-penetrating Pulse-EM (time-domain electromagnetic) survey on the MoGold property located north of Val d'Or, Que., in May, 2022.
Black Tusk's MoGold and PG Highway projects comprise adjoining claims covering 2,400 hectares. Black Tusk's geologic team, headed by Dr. Mathieu Piche, PhD, OGQ, conducted reconnaissance-level geological surveys with associated rock sampling over the two properties (see news release dated Jan. 11, 2022).
Sixty-nine samples were obtained from the MoGold property. Some elements of interest returned elevated values, including a series of channel samples that returned elevated copper of 921 parts per million and 959 parts per million in one area of sampling. Samples with elevated copper and/or gold were noted in some cases to contain elevated silver (to 0.65 part per million) and zinc (to 1,135 parts per million). The attached table summarizes the more significant rock sampling results.
Dr. Piche notes that there are indicators suggestive of volcanogenic massive sulphide deposition based upon the geology and some of the geochemical characteristics. The Pulse-EM survey will be completed to explore potential sulphide mineralization at depth in the area where surface sampling returned elevated results. Targets generated from the ground geophysics and from rock sampling results will be tested by a diamond drill program, planned for summer 2022.
To date, exploration on the claims is guided in part by the results of an airborne magnetic survey completed earlier in 2021. Geophysique TMC completed a total of 153 line kilometres of survey, the results of which provided highly detailed magnetic images that indicate elongate features crossing the MoGold property and adjoining the Black Tusk/PG Highway property. Prospecting of these features will continue as part of the 2022 exploration.
Black Tusk exploration programs undertaken in Quebec are supervised by Dr. Piche, with his office located north of Val d'Or. He is also a Black Tusk company director.
Dr. Mathieu Piche, PhD, OGC, a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical data in the press release.
"We are looking forward to an exciting 2022 exploration season in Val d'Or, Que.," stated Richard Penn, chief executive officer of Black Tusk.
We seek Safe Harbor.
