**True width not known and may be less than interval width

Black Tusk noted in a previous news release that drill hole MKE-21-03 showed the most promise during the drilling campaign. Geologic observations of that drill hole indicated a section of core that contained a visible gold grain of approximate 1mm by 2mm size, as well as veining, alterations and associated sulphide minerals over a wide interval. The sample interval that included the section with the visible gold was analyzed by metallic assay, as well as the adjoining samples. The results of those analyses are summarized below (previously released).

*Section containing visible gold
** True width not known

The section containing the visible gold returned a weighted average 0.61 gpt Au. However, the coarse fraction contained 8.01 grams per tonne indicating that coarse gold was a significant part of the overall content, as might be expected from sections containing visible gold. Drill holes MKE-21-03, MKE-21-04, and MKE-21-08 were all designed to test a geophysical anomaly of primary interest. These holes returned a total of 17 core analysis containing over 0.1 gpt Au, and is considered a target worthy of continued exploration.

The results of the 8-hole diamond drilling program indicate that gold is present within veins and altered rock cored during the McKenzie East project. The Black Tusk team continues to evaluate these drill results in contemplation of continued exploration on the property. The team is encouraged by the presence of gold mineralization on the property, as evidenced by assay results and the identification of free gold grains in core. There are many untested targets remaining on the property that require continued evaluation.

Drill core was logged and sampled at the Black Tusk secure facility located near the property. Samples were taken directly to ALS Lab located in Val d'Or, an accredited laboratory. Samples were continuously under custody of the Black Tusk team members until delivered to the lab. Black Tusk undertakes QA/QC procedures including insertion of blanks and standards at regular intervals into the sample stream.

At the lab, the samples underwent ALS analysis ME-ICP41 for 35 elements by Aqua Regia ICP-AES, and AU-ICP21 for gold by Fire Assay with AES finish. For the observed coarse gold samples, the samples were processed by Au-SCR21 coarse screening and Fire Assay with AA finish.

The Black Tusk - McKenzie East program is supervised by VD Géo Service based in Val d'Or, including Black Tusk company director Dr. Mathieu Piché, OGQ.

Perry Grunenberg, PGeo, a qualified person as that term is defined under NI 43-101, has reviewed the and approved the technical data disclosed in this press release, including core sample intervals and corresponding analytical results as presented. Mr. Grunenberg personally assembled and tabled results, including QA/QC (quality assurance/quality control) results from standard and blank materials inserted into the core sample stream.

Mr. Grunenberg is a former Director of the company and continues to act as an adviser to the company.

We seek Safe Harbour.
