In a news release, gold exploration and development company Black Tusk Resources Inc. (TUSK:CSE; BTKRF:OTCMKTS; 0NB:FSE) announced that it has submitted an application to the Quebec Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks for a permit to conduct exploration drilling on the McKenzie East gold project. The company stated that the proposed drill locations were determined by its geological team and that the application process was handled by Sulviculture La Verendrye of Amos, Quebec.
The company indicated that "the McKenzie East project permit will allow for the construction of 18 drill pads, 11 water supply stations and 3 km of access trails." The firm advised that it expects to conduct the work during this year's exploration season.
