BLACK TUSK RESOURCES REVIEWS LORRAIN FOR POTENTIAL NI
Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK REVIEWS NICKEL POTENTIAL ON THE LORRAIN PROPERTY, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. is currently undertaking a review of the Lorrain property in order to fully appreciate its potential for hosting nickel mineralization. The Lorrain claim package covers 2,208.4 hectares in 38 contiguous claims located in western Quebec, overlying favorable geologic and geophysical features for hosting nickel. This region of Quebec contains PGE and Nickel properties located within 15 km of the Black Tusk Lorrain project, including the Lac Croche and Delhi deposits to the north and the Pyke, Lac Kelly, and Mine Lorrain to the east.
The Lorrain property was originally staked by Black Tusk to cover the Guimond-Church mineral showing. This documented showing is reported as disseminated pyrite, magnetite and chromite in altered ultramafic rocks. Drill core sampling returned up to 0.48% Cr and 0.27% Ni (GM 02994). A regionally mapped elongate north-south trending peridotite-gabbro body passes through the Lorrain Property.
Black Tusk is currently compiling all of the geologic and exploration records that are available for the Lorrain property, concentrating on the nickel potential. It is expected that future work by Black Tusk will include mapping and sampling the original outcrop where nickel was discovered at the Guimond-Church showing. As well, a detailed magnetic survey is recommended to better define the magnetically high ridge that traces the host ultramafic through the property. Drilling might be considered for 2023.
Black Tusk is looking forward to further testing the mineralization located on the Lorrain property. The Company holds significant assets in Quebec, and is looking forward to continued exploration on these projects in 2022-2023.
