BLACK TUSK EXPLORES TARGETS FOR DIAMOND DRILLING ON THE MCKENZIE EAST GOLD PROJECT, VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc.'s exploration team is refining the location of primary drill targets on its 100-per-cent-owned McKenzie East gold project, located near Val d'Or, Que. The targets will be tested by diamond drilling slated to begin in early to mid-September.
The phase 1 drilling program will consist of a minimum 1,000 metres of diamond drilling, with the initial five drill holes targeting depths between 200 to 300 metres downhole. Phase 1 is designed to test the mineralization potential of several anomalous features that occur within the northwestern section of the 1,676-hectare property.
The drilling program will test a corridor of interest that includes elevated gold associated with copper returned from the MMI soil sample results (see news release dated July 20, 2020), combined with magnetic anomalies outlined by the detailed drone survey. The team is also awaiting results from the 3-D induced polarization survey recently completed on the property prior to setting the final locations for initial drilling.
The geologic team has recently added four historic diamond drill holes to the McKenzie East database. These holes were completed by Exploration Auriginor Inc. and are documented in assessment report GM52916. The four holes were completed within the Black Tusk target corridor and returned significant gold results, now recorded as the C2-B gold showing on the Sigeom website. Intercepts include 2.8 grams per tonne gold over 0.3 metre (232.5 to 232.8 m downhole) and 0.9 g/t gold over 0.3 m (373.7 to 374 m downhole) from CO94-10, and one g/t gold over 0.3 m (84.4 to 84.7 m downhole), from hole C-94-13. True widths of mineralized intercepts are unknown.
The presence of gold in core from the historic drilling is very encouraging and assists in determining areas for continued exploration on the project. The Black Tusk geological team will continue to review all available data, and will add the 3-D IP survey results as soon as they are available, in order to determine exact locations for initial phase 1 diamond drilling.
