Vancouver, BC - July 10, 2019 - TheNewswire - Black Tusk Resources Inc. ("Black Tusk" or the "Company) (CNSX:TUSK) (OTC:BTKRF) (FRANKFURT:0NB) is pleased to announce that they are now in the process of preparing drill pad access for diamond drilling on its Golden Valley Project. An excavator equipped with a wood chipping device will mobilize to the site to clear wooded areas and level access and drill pads. A total of 15 sites have been selected for preparation, with the drill to mobilize onto the first site later this month.
The access and drill pad construction will allow for the testing of gold-bearing structures as outlined by historic past exploration (Target I and II, see news release dated March 27, 2019). The structures include potential shear-hosted gold mineralization and potential multi-element iron formation mineralization as logged during the historic drill programs.
The Golden Valley Project is located 26 kilometres south of Hecla Mining Corp's Casa Berardi Mine, which is currently in production, and is located within the Abitibi Greenstone belt that is host to many world class mineral deposits. The Golden Valley Project is easily accessible via an existing major road utilized for logging and mining, and is also the main access road to the Casa Berardi Mine.
''We are extremely excited to mobilize our team and equipment for this summer's exploration program and can't wait to see the drills turning at the Golden Valley Project'' stated Black Tusk CEO, Richard Penn.
