Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK RESOURCES CONTRACTS EAGLE MAPPING FOR LIDAR SURVEY ON THE GOLDSMITH PROPERTY
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has contracted Eagle Mapping Services Ltd. to complete a light detection and ranging (lidar) survey over the Goldsmith property. Data acquisition at the Goldsmith property is expected to begin within two to three weeks.
Eagle Mapping has many years of experience processing lidar data using the Terrasolid Suite. It is an expert in fusing photogrammetry, imagery and lidar, creating very useful geospatial data for mining exploration projects. The lidar survey results from the Goldsmith project are expected to provide very detailed topographical expression of the ground surface. These results will assist in mapping of geological structures on the property as well as accurately locating previously mapped historical mine workings. New discovery of previously unmapped mine workings is also possible.
The results of the lidar survey will be combined with geological, geophysical and geochemical survey results to provide detailed targets for the 2018 fieldwork program on the Goldsmith, expected to begin in the latter part of August.
"We are very pleased to see the Goldsmith property advanced by modern technological applications such as lidar surveying. We anticipate interesting results from this survey and from combining the lidar results with the other data compilation and processing that has been undertaken. We are excited to be updating the information package that will eventually be used for exploration targeting," said Richard Penn, chief executive officer of Black Tusk Resources.
