Great Thunder Acquires the Southern Star Property, Fenelon Gold District

Jun 16, 2020

Great Thunder Gold Corp. has completed due diligence and closing of its Southern Star acquisition.

The Southern Star Property located 6.5km south of the Fenelon/Tabasco deposit held by Wallbridge Mining Company. The Southern Star addition now brings the Company's claims to a total of 10,677 hectares in the prolific district.

The Southern Star Property:

The Southern Star Property is made up of 146 claims which covers approximately 8,100 hectares (81km2). It shares a 7km adjacent border with Midland Exploration's recent claim acquisition announced April 2, 2020, expanding their Gaudet property.

This new property acquisition, with encouraging gold and base metal potential, protects more than 81 km2 of the Brouillan-Fenelon geological Group, which is made up of felsic to mafic volcano-sedimentary rocks. The Bapst Fault marks the contact between the Brouillan-Fenelon Group and the Brouillan intrusive in the SW portion of this property. The Grasset Fault also crosses in part to the NE of the property.

The Bapst Fault runs NW-SE through the SW part of the property. In the South-West section of the property there was a historic silver intercept (SG3-1) along the Bapst Fault. The intercept returned 5.6g/t Ag over 1.4m and 5g/t Ag over 1m within drill holes (Mercier et al., 1996). This silver intercept was targeted within an area of conductor anomalies and a VTEM target identified by Midland Exploration in 2017. 

There are two additional distinct electro-magnetic ("EM") targets located on this property and it covers 11km along the extension of the Lower Detour Fault. There has been little historical work to test these different targets on the property, yet.
