In a news release, Black Tusk Resources Inc. (TUSK:CSE; BTKRF:OTCMKTS; 0NB:FSE) announced it completed its winter 2021, eight-hole, diamond drill program at its McKenzie East project located north of Val d'Or, Quebec, and released results of the first four holes.
"The results to date indicate that gold is present within the veins and alterations observed in drill core from the McKenzie East project," the release noted.
"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 company reported. Metallic assaying of the section containing the visible grain returned a weighted average of 0.61 grams per ton (0.61 g/t) gold. The coarse fraction contained 8.01 g/t gold, and the fine fraction contained 0.3 g/t.
The company also reported that hole MKE-21-01 returned 1 meter of 1.185 g/t gold.
"The results to date indicate that gold is present within the veins and alterations observed in drill core from the McKenzie East project," the company stated.
Results of the remaining four holes drilled during the winter campaign are pending. A total of 2,584 meters was drilled.[NLINSERT]
