SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN–(Marketwired – Nov. 2, 2017) – Tarku Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TKU) (the “Company” or “Tarku”) is pleased to announce the start of exploration work on its wholly owned Apollo and Atlas gold and base metals projects and situated 50 kilometres east of Matagami in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory. The contiguous projects are covering 104 km2 along a regional gold structure named the Rivière Waswanipi Shear Zone (RWSZ), a geological setting which Tarku interprets as similar to the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone hosting the Detour Lake mine. The planned work program includes a till, humus and rock samples program which aims to validate the historical results including a value of 4.94 g/t in the heavy mineral fractions in order to identify priority areas along the RWSZ as well as other promising structures and contacts over a distance of 19 kilometres.
