Great Thunder Plans Urban Thunder Exploration

 

Victoria, British Columbia – Great Thunder Gold Corp. (TSXV: GTG) is pleased to announce that it has completed a review of historical work and is developing an exploration program for its Urban Thunder gold project in the Windfall Lake Gold Camp of Quebec. Details of the Company’s Phase I exploration program will be announced shortly.

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.

Company President and CEO, Kevin Whelan, said, “The continuing positive results from drilling campaigns underway at neighbouring projects within the Windfall Lake Gold Camp show that our Urban Thunder gold project is geographically very well positioned to see similar outcomes. We are looking forward to beginning Phase I of our exploration program.”

Great Thunder’s 100%-owned Urban Thunder Project – formerly known as the Deluce Property – 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.
