VICTORIA, BC, March 6, 2017 – Great Thunder Gold Corp. (TSXV: GTG) is pleased to provide a technical overview of its recently purchased Windfall Lake area property in northern Quebec.
The 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. These Abitibi-type gold deposits are hosted in a variety of Archean age metavolcanic and intrusive rocks associated with magnetic high responses within a Z-shaped pattern of major east trending structures and offsetting northeast trending structures.
Great Thunder’s property lies in a similar structural setting as the Gladiator gold deposit underlain by rocks similar to the Windfall Lake and Barry gold deposits. Management believes that the geological setting of the property is very favourable to hosting similar deposits and plans an intensive and systematic exploration program in the near future.
