Great Thunder Commences drilling on Southern Star Property at Fenelon

Mar 25, 2021

Great Thunder Gold Corp. says its inaugural drilling program on its Southern Star Property  has commenced. The Southern Star is located along the Lower Detour deformation zone, part of the Sunday Lake-Detour crustal scale structural domain recognized for its relation to gold deposits in east central Quebec.

The Great Thunder inaugural drilling will focus on the north part of the Southern Star Property. The targets that will be drilled are located approximately 6.5km south of Wallbridge Mining's Fenelon Deposit and 9km south of their Tabasco and Area 51 gold zones.

The 2021 first-pass drill program will consist of 4 diamond drill holes targeting depths of 600 metres per hole for a total of about 2,400 metres. Drill targets have been selected based on the conductive plate modelling carried out by Campbell and Walker Geophysics. The 'A' conductor was initially targeted in a 1986 drill campaign; however, the newly interpreted 3D model demonstrated that the targets were not properly penetrated. The 'A' conductor is a high-priority target in this Phase 1 program.

The 'B' conductor (in the centre of Figure 3) is flat lying and is believed to be properly penetrated in past drill programs. This conductor will not be targeted in the maiden drill program.

The 'C' conductor has never been drilled and will be a focus for this Phase 1 drill program.
