BLACK TUSK SUBMITS MCKENZIE EAST SAMPLES FOR ANALYSIS
Mr. Richard Penn reports
BLACK TUSK RESOURCES INC. CONTRACTS SGS MINERALS LAB AND SELECTS MMI PROCESS FOR SOIL SAMPLING ON THE MCKENZIE EAST GOLD PROJECT, VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC
Black Tusk Resources Inc. has submitted soil samples obtained during reconnaissance on the McKenzie East gold property for analysis. Samples were taken to SGS Minerals Lab in Val d'Or directly by Black Tusk's exploration team. A total of 203 samples were submitted for MMI analysis. The McKenzie East Gold property is located 30 km north of Val d'Or, Quebec.
SGS Minerals Lab was chosen for processing samples from the McKenzie East gold project due to their innovative trademarked MMI process. MMI, or Mobile Metal Ion process, uses a different approach that provides results that are more meaningful in areas of exploration where the overburden is considered deep. Rather than using acid digestion to release metals from soil particles, MMI extractants are used to detach and hold loosely bound metal ions in solution. These ions more closely reflect the concentrations of elements within the underlying bedrock. Black Tusk will utilize the MMI-M analytical package for 54 elements. Results are expected within the next 2 to 3 weeks.
