BLACK TUSK RESOURCES AWAITS GOLDSMITH SAMPLING RESULTS
Mr. Richard Penn reports
SAMPLE ANALYSIS UPDATE FOR THE GOLDSMITH PROPERTY
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has provided an update on sample processing being undertaken for samples obtained during the fall trenching program.
In October, the Black Tusk exploration crew obtained seven large-volume (30 kilograms to 90 kilograms) samples from four areas of trenching, to be submitted for bench-test-scale metallurgical studies. Samples were submitted to Met-Solve Laboratories Inc. located in Langley, B.C. (see news release dated Oct. 30, 2018).
Met-Solve has provided a timing update for the large-volume sample processing. Gravity separation test work on two of the samples has been completed, with the remainder to be completed by next week. The samples require assaying to provide the final compiled gold content. This may require a further week for completion.
In addition to the larger samples, 10 normal-sized rock samples were taken from prospective outcrops and trenches along the 800-metre corridor. These samples were shipped to MS Analytical located in Langley, B.C. Results from analysis of these samples are expected in the coming weeks.
