Black Tusk Resources Inc. Completes Diamond Drilling on the McKenzie East Gold Project, Val-d’Or, Quebec

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 22, 2021 / Black Tusk Resources Inc. ("Black Tusk" or the "Company) (CSE:TUSK)(Frankfurt:0NB)(OTC PINK:BTKRF) is pleased to announce the results from the first four drill holes on the McKenzie East gold property located north of Val d'Or, Quebec. Results include 1.185 grams per tonne gold (gpt Au) over 1 metre from hole MKE-21-01.

The drill hole that showed the most promise during the drilling campaign was hole MKE-21-03. Geologic observations of that drill hole indicated a section of core that contained a visible gold grain of approximate 1mm by 2mm size, as well as veining, alterations and associated sulphide minerals over a wider interval. The sample interval that included the section with the visible gold was analyzed by metallic assay, as well as the adjoining samples. The results of that analysis are summarized below.

The section containing the visible gold returned a weighted average 0.61 gpt Au. However, the coarse fraction contained 8.01 grams per tonne indicating that coarse gold was a significant part of the overall content.

Black Tusk continued to test the geophysical features tested by hole MKE21-03 with holes MKE21-04 and MKE21-08. Hole MKE21-04 did not return significant gold results. Results are pending for the remaining holes.

Gold values returned from the first three holes of drilling include the following:

Drill core was logged and sampled at the Black Tusk secure facility located near the property. Samples were taken directly to ALS Lab located in Val d'Or, an accredited laboratory. Samples were continuously under custody of the Black Tusk team members until delivered to the lab. Black Tusk undertakes QA/QC procedures including insertion of blanks and standards at regular intervals into the sample stream.

At the lab, the samples underwent ALS analysis ME-ICP41 for 35 elements by Aqua Regia ICP-AES, and AU-ICP21 for gold by Fire Assay with AES finish. For the observed coarse gold samples, the samples were processed by Au-SCR21 coarse screening and Fire Assay with AA finish.

The results to date indicate that gold is present within the veins and alterations observed in drill core from the McKenzie East project. The results for the remaining four drill holes are expected in the coming weeks. The Black Tusk team will undertake in-depth interpretation once all results from core sampling have been received and tabulated.

The Black Tusk - McKenzie East program is supervised by VD Géo Service based in Val d'Or, including Black Tusk company director Dr. Mathieu Piché, OGQ.
