VICTORIA, BC, October 4, 2017 – Great Thunder Gold Corp. (TSXV: GTG) is pleased to announce that it has launched the first phase of its exploration program for its Urban Thunder gold project in the Windfall Lake Gold Camp of Quebec.
An exploration team is expected to begin a geochemical soil survey on October 9. The survey will be done on GPS lines 400 metres apart, with sampling every 100 metres. A total of 325 samples are planned, with analysis by ALS in Val d’Or, Quebec.
The main gold targets on the Urban Thunder Project lie in the basalts of the Urban Formation, which occupies the southwest part of the property. The remaining part of the property is underlain by the tonalite and massive diorite of the Hébert pluton. Management is very encouraged by the results from a previous airborne magnetic survey, which shows at least three magnetic high anomalies: one over the basalts, and the other two over the Hébert Pluton. These latter two anomalies may represent mafic to ultramafic phases in the pluton, which could expand the mineralization on the Project to include targets for nickel-copper exploration.
Great Thunder’s 100%-owned Urban Thunder Project comprises 20 contiguous cell mineral claims covering approximately 1,127 hectares. It is located 12 kilometres northwest of Metanor Resources Inc.’s Barry gold deposit, 15 kilometres west of Osisko Mining Inc.’s Windfall Lake gold deposits, and 18 kilometres west-northwest of BonTerra Resources Inc.’s Gladiator gold deposit.
