October 9, 2018 / TheNewswire / Vancouver, BC - Black Tusk Resources Inc. ("Black Tusk" or the "Company) (C:TUSK) is pleased to announce the completion of the fall trenching program on the Goldsmith Property (the "Property"). The work program was very successful at exposing mineralized bedrock at four distinct locations on the Property. Samples were taken for testing along an 800 metre elongate corridor of mine workings where high gold values were returned from historic work.
The Black Tusk exploration crew obtained large volume (30-90 Kg) samples from the 4 areas of trenching in order to be able to conduct bench test scale metallurgical studies. The bench test study will assist in determining the extent of "nugget effect" of gold in the bedrock as well as determining gold distribution.
As well, an additional 10 rock samples were taken from prospective outcrops and trenched sites along the 800 metre corridor. Samples are to be shipped to MS Analytical and Met Solve Laboratories Inc., both located in Langley, BC. Discussion is underway with representatives of the laboratories in order to define the best analytical process to use for these samples.
The fall trenching program exposed quartz veins, with substantial sulphide minerals (pyrrhotite, pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, galena). The veins are commonly associated with a shear structure that trends through the mineralized corridor.
"The Goldsmith Project trenching program was well executed and we are looking forward to the results." states CEO Richard Penn.
