BLACK TUSK RESOURCES BEGINS TRENCHING AT GOLDSMITH

BLACK TUSK COMMENCES BEDROCK TRENCHING PROGRAM ON THE GOLDSMITH PROPERTY
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has commenced its fall trenching program on the Goldsmith property. The work program has been fully permitted and bonded as required by the British Columbia Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources.
The trenching program has been designed to follow up on historical work completed on the property, where mineralized zones returned significantly elevated gold values from bedrock sampling. The company plans to obtain large volume samples from several sites. Sites of interest include those where gold assays of bedrock have returned values greater than 20 grams per tonne from recent sampling (see news release dated May 16, 2018) and where historical work has reported higher gold values from previous bedrock trenching and sampling.
"There have been some extremely high gold values obtained from bedrock sampling on the Goldsmith property, and Black Tusk intends to further evaluate the continuation and extent of this mineralization," stated chief executive officer Richard Penn.
The company is now in consultation with various laboratories to establish the best way to process these samples. The larger-volume samples will be amenable to bench-test analysis, and the company desires to utilize the most advanced technologies available for this test. A process including a centrifugal gravity concentrate to collect the free nugget gold for further assay is being considered.
