Black Tusk Resources Inc. (TUSK:CSE; BTKRF:OTCMKTS; 0NB:FSE) announced in a news release that it received the results of 203 soil samples taken in May from its McKenzie East project north of Val d'Or, Quebec.
"A number of interesting areas of interest were developed from the soil sampling results," the release noted.
The company noted that mobile metal ion testing of the soil showed that areas of higher gold values overlie linear features that were mapped through the magnetic survey. For gold, correlation exists with rare earth elements and, to a lesser degree, copper. One area of interest, which could become a high priority drill target, is within the north block of claims and shows elevated values for multiple elements.
Regarding other exploration work at McKenzie East, Black Tusk Resources is currently line cutting and expects to complete it later this week, as announced in another news release. The work had been delayed previously when the area was deemed to be a high fire risk.
Line cutting is being done for the upcoming three-dimensional induced polarization (IP) survey, which is slated to be started McKenzie East on July 27. The IP survey will test a series of 1.5 kilometer-long lines for a total of 9 kilometers.
Along with the soil sampling and metal ion testing, Black Tusk stated it has done a reconnaissance geologic assessment and a drone-assisted magnetometer survey of the project. Analyzed together, results of those and the imminent IP survey will help Black Tusk define diamond drill targets, the company noted.
The Vancouver-based company expects to start drilling at McKenzie East later this summer.[NLINSERT]
