Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK RESOURCES INC. EXPANDS NUMBER OF SITES WITHIN PERMIT TO DRILL ON THE MCKENZIE EAST GOLD PROJECT, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. is extending its diamond drilling permits to cover five new target areas on the McKenzie East project located north of Val d'Or, Que.
The McKenzie East permits now allow for the construction of the initial 18 drill pads from permit 1, and an additional five pads from permit 2, totalling 23 drill pads with supporting water supply stations and access trails. Black Tusk plans to conduct the drilling program in the coming months. Areas that are covered by wetlands may require wintertime drilling once freezing occurs later in the year.
The company has now completed a significant amount of exploration on the property, including MMI (mobile metal ion) soil sampling, detailed drone-supported magnetometer surveying and 3-D IP (induced polarization) surveying. The exploration team continues to evaluate the results of these surveys, combined with historic work completed on the property, to determine high-priority targets for initial diamond drilling.
The company is excited by the great potential of these drill targets and is looking forward to the start of diamond drilling on the McKenzie East gold project.
Perry Grunenberg, PGeo, a qualified person as that term is defined under NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this news release. Mr. Grunenberg is also a director of the company.
