Victoria, British Columbia (FSCwire) – Great Thunder Gold Corp. (TSXV: GTG) is pleased to announce that it has completed its field exploration program on its Valentine Mountain Gold Project located near Sooke, British Columbia.
The field program consisted of a detailed stream moss mat geochemistry at the Northern Gold Corridor Target and detailed soil geochemistry at the Discovery West Zone.
The Northern Gold Corridor Target is located along the northern flank of Valentine Mountain. Nineteen GPS-controlled stream moss mat samples were taken over an area of 2,000 metres by 500 metres along four drainages upstream and along strike of previous moss mat samples, which yielded gold values up to 735 ppb. The purpose of the stream moss mat geochemistry program is to focus the search area of the target for future soil geochemistry and geological mapping.
The Discovery West Zone is centred 600 metres west of the Discovery Zone. Thirty-three B-horizon soil samples were taken at 25 metre intervals along 50-metre spaced GPS-controlled grid lines. The grid covered an area of 200 metres by 150 metres centred over the site of the 2016 trench sample which yielded 22.2 g/t gold. In addition, two select outcrop rock grab samples were taken from exposures of quartz-sulphide veins on or adjacent to the grid. The purpose of the soil geochemistry program is to identify targets for trenching and rock sampling.
The 2017 field program was supervised and led by Jacques Houle, P.Eng. Stream moss mat and soil samples were taken by a director and a shareholder of Great Thunder. Geochemistry work is being conducted by Bureau Veritas Minerals of Vancouver, BC.
