BLACK TUSK RESOURCES INC. UNDERTAKES ACCESS PREPARATION FOR DIAMOND DRILLING ON THE MCKENZIE EAST PROJECT, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has begun clearing of access routes for the coming diamond drill program on the McKenzie East gold property located north of Val d'Or, Que.
The company's geologic crew has just completed a reconnaissance of the proposed drill sites in advance of mechanized brush removal and preparation of access routes and drill pads. The crew has identified five priority target zones for initial drilling, with nine drill pads prepared to provide flexibility. The work is being supervised by VD Geo Service based in Val d'Or and company director Dr. Mathieu Piche. The company has obtained permits to drill from up to 23 drill pads on the property that allows for drilling to continue after receiving successful results.
Black Tusk has been monitoring the COVID-19 status in Quebec and the associated protocols for safely conducting work. Activities will be limited to only those required to complete the work. Shifts will be co-ordinated to limit the number of staff present at any time on the work site.
At this time, the drilling is now slated to begin on the Monday, Jan. 18, 2021, on McKenzie East. The company is also prepared to start drilling on its Lorrain PGE project as part of this winter's exploration campaign.
Black Tusk has signed a contract with Forage Val d'Or for 3,000 metres of drilling, of which a minimum 2,500 metres will be drilled on the McKenzie East gold project. The remainder of drilling will be used to test drill targets at the Lorrain property located in western Quebec, near Lorrainville.
