Black Tusk Resources (CSE:TUSK) has begun work at its McKenzie East Gold Project, located 30 kilometres north of Val-D’Or in Quebec.

The company will be conducting mapping and sampling of outcrops, along with reconnaissance soil and rock sampling.

This will be done to provide an overview of the property so Black Tusk can draw up a diamond drilling schedule for the site.

Targets for the sampling work were identified using drone-supported detailed magnetic imaging surveys that Black Tusk conducted earlier in the year, alongside historic data from previous exploration programs on the McKenzie East property.

Black Tusk only recently received their permits allowing for construction of the 18 drill pads needed to conduct drilling on the site. These sites also contain supporting water supply stations and access trials.

Black Tusk’s CEO, Richard Penn is eager to begin drilling at the site. 

“We look forward to obtaining the results from this exploration program to assist in defining potential high-priority drill targets at the McKenzie East Gold Project,” he said. 

As evidence for the region’s prospects, the company pointed to Monarch Gold’s McKenzie Break Project.

The McKenzie Break project is just 2 kilometres away from Black Tusk’s property and has recently returned gold assays containing visually distinctive gold mineralization.

One hole at McKenzie Break returned 20.12 grams per tonne of gold over 2.6 metres.

Black Tusk Resources (TUSK) is in the grey, with shares trading for C$0.06 at 10:48am EDT.
