Tags: #Mining

Aug 1, 2019 – TheNewswire – Vancouver, BC – Black Tusk Resources Inc. (“Black Tusk” or the “Company) (CNSX:TUSK.CN) (OTC:BTKRF) (Frankfurt:0NB) is pleased to have contracted Dr. Mathieu Piche to assist with exploration on their Golden Valley Project, Abitibi, Quebec. Phase 1 of Diamond drilling is currently underway with the first 11 holes to be completed in the coming weeks.

Dr. Piche has an abundance of experience exploring for mineral deposits in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt. He has authored a variety of academic papers including alteration geochemistry as it relates to mineral deposits, and stratigraphic and structural characterization of mining camps in the Abitibi with the objective of refining genetic models. He was a past recipient of the Quebec Mineral Exploration Association – John-Descarreaux Award, bestowed to highlight the contribution of an individual to enhanced geoscientific knowledge linked to mining exploration, as well as The Quebec Geologists Order Merite Geoscientifique Award.

Geologic discussion with Dr. Piche to this point has supported further work on the Golden Valley Project. The geology underlying the Black Tusk – Golden Valley claims, as regionally mapped, has some correlation with existing gold camps in the Abitibi. In general, the belt of Archean greenstone volcanic and sedimentary rocks trending through the property, with a temporally related pluton of igneous intrusion, is a common setting for gold mineralization in the Abitibi. Regionally mapped fault structures may also play a role in concentration of ore minerals.

After the current diamond drilling program is completed and all of the sample results have been returned, Dr. Piche will be asked to assist with planning of continued exploration, including a Phase 2 drilling program, to expand upon areas determined to be of significance.

Black Tusk personnel continue to manage the initial phases of the drilling program under the direction of Exploration Geologist, Perry Grunenberg, OGQ. Local Quebec-based consulting groups have been contracted to undertake core logging and core sampling at a facility located in Villebois, approximately 25 km south of the Golden Valley Project.

The Golden Valley Project is located 26 kilometres south of the Hecla Mining Corp’s Casa Berardi Mine, that is currently in production and lies within the Abitibi Greenstone belt that is host to many world-class gold deposits.
