VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 6, 2023 / Black Tusk Resources Inc. ("Black Tusk" or the "Company) (CNSX:TUSK) is pleased to announce that they have entered into a share purchase agreement to acquire 1396427 BC Ltd. ("427 BC"). 427 B.C. is the beneficial holder of the PegaLith project claims that cover strong geological and mineralogical indicators for lithium potential. The claims cover 636 hectares in 11 contiguous claims located within 25 kilometers north of Gatineau, Quebec.
The claims were originally staked to cover part of an extensive belt of granitic and gneissic rocks that host pegmatitic mineralogy. Four historic showings were small-scale mined for coarse-grained feldspar and quartz as industrial minerals during the early 1900's. A fifth historic mine is located several hundred metres west of the claims. The geologic summary for these historic mines indicate the presence of mica in the pegmatite, one possible source for lithium (Natural Resources Quebec, Sigéom website). As well, the historic Mine Leduc, located approximately six kilometres southwest of the PegaLith property contains a small lithium-bearing body (approximately 230 tonnes of 5.39% Li2O) from pegmatitic materials (GM62505, Geotech Exploration, 2006, not 43-101 compliant). The reader is cautioned that potential lithium resources that exist on properties outside of the PegaLith claims are not direct indicators of lithium mineralization on the PegaLith property.
The Black Tusk exploration programs in Quebec are supervised by Dr. Mathieu Piché, OGQ, who is also a Black Tusk company director.
Black Tusk's geologic team are currently compiling all available data for the PegaLith project in preparation for a 2023 Phase I exploration program. The claims have good existing available access for exploration, including initial sampling of pegmatitic outcrops for lithium.
