The Company’s flagship project is the McKenzie East Property. The property is located 30 kilometres north of the city of Val-d’Or, Quebec and situated in the prolific Abitibi greenstone-belt. The surrounding region is also extremely active for gold exploration companies, with exceptional existing infrastructure and several mills and operating gold mines in the immediate area.

Furthermore, Black Tusk has been applying modern exploration techniques on the drill project. For example, the’ve done a drone magnetometer survey which targets hard to reach places, mobile metal ion sampling as well as an orevision 3D-IP survey. “All of this data that we’ve been collecting is going to help us formulate the strongest drill targets,” says Penn.
The McKenzie East Property contains 3 different gold occurrences and 2 more gold occurrences are located adjacent to the limits of its claims, along its eastern boundary.
