Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK RESOURCES EXPANDS LAND PACKAGE ON THEIR GOLDEN VALLEY PROJECT, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has expanded its Golden Valley property through claim staking. An additional 6 claims have been staked and approved, adding 178.29 hectares to the property. These additional claims extend over the trend of regionally mapped geology and geophysical anomalies to the south of the main claim block. These additional claims increase the overall property to a total 1,779.71 hectares.
The company's geologic crew have reviewed the available information from the Quebec database (Sigeom) for this area of new claims. Several historic exploratory drill holes were completed within the claims, as well as geological and geophysical surveys. The new claims combined with the available data will add to the exploration targeting for future consideration on the Golden Valley Property.
Stage 1 diamond drilling on the project has been completed, with core logging and core sampling taking place at a facility located in Villebois, approximately 25 km south of the Golden Valley Property. A total of 11 holes were drilled. Drill core samples have been shipped to ALS Global Laboratory in Rouyn-Noranda for analysis.
''We are extremely excited with the progress to date at Golden Valley and are thrilled to expand the footprint of the Project'' stated Black Tusk Resources President & CEO, Richard Penn.
The Golden Valley Project is located 26 kilometres south of Hecla Mining Corp's Casa Berardi Mine and lies within the Abitibi Greenstone belt that is host to many world-class gold deposits.
The Property is easily accessible via existing major roads utilized for logging and mining, including the Casa Berardi Mine.
