Black Tusk Updates Status of Altococha Technical Report

LIMA, PERU--(Marketwire - April 24, 2012) - Black Tusk Minerals Inc. (OTCBB:BKTK) (the "Company") announces that as a result of a technical disclosure review by the British Columbia Securities Commission ("BCSC"), the Company is providing an update on its Requirement to file a compliant NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Altococha (Huanza) Property.

The Company is the titleholder of certain mining rights in the district of Huanza, province of Huarochiri, department of Lima, Peru and, in order to exploit its mining rights, the Company requires a land use agreement with the peasant community named Comunidad Campesina de Huanza (the "Community"), the owner of the superficial lands covering the area of our concessions. The Company is currently renegotiating its Agreement On The Use Of Lands With Mining Purposes with the Community. The Community is reviewing the proposal and it is anticipated that a new agreement will be obtained shortly whereby the Company would have access for the NI 43-101 personal inspection required to file a compliant NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Altococha (Huanza) Property with the BCSC, and to initiate the subsequent exploration programs planned by the Company.

The Company's February 29, 2012 news release retracted the previous February 2011 Altococha technical report, and corporate disclosure of a tailings resource on the Altococha (Huanza) property. The Company expects to file a new technical report within 90-days after its Agreement with the Community.
