ROUYN-NORANDA, QC / ACCESSWIRE / September 25, 2020 / Black Tusk Resources Inc. ("Black Tusk" or the "Company) (CSE:TUSK)(OTC PINK:BTKRF)(FRANKFURT: 0NB) is pleased to announce that preliminary results from the 3D Induced Polarization Survey (IP) have been received for the McKenzie East gold property located north of Val d'Or. The company contracted Abitibi Geophysics ("Abitibi") in Val d'Or Quebec to undertake their OreVision® IP survey over the main target zone on the property.
The IP survey lines were located within the northwest area of the McKenzie East property in order to trace possible gold-bearing structures similar those located on the McKenzie Break property located 2 kilometres west of the Black Tusk claims. A series of 1.5 kilometre long lines were tested by the IP survey, for a total of 7.5 kilometres.
The results of the IP survey are very encouraging, with Abitibi providing 5 new targets for potential drill testing. The targets have been modeled as high relative "Gold Index" on the resulting profiles. The IP targets are also supported by magnetic anomalies produced from the drone magnetic survey completed earlier this year. Soil sample MMI results also indicate potential for gold and copper to be associated with the geophysical targets.
Abitibi will continue to process and model the 3D IP survey results to provide more detailed visualization of the underlying bedrock and associated structures for drilling.
The Company expects to be diamond drill testing the best targets defined by the data so far obtained, within the following months. The current permit allows for the completion of 18 drill pads on the property.
