Great Thunder Plans Winter Drilling at the Chubb Lithium Project, Quebec

Sep 13, 2021

Great Thunder Gold Corp. has signed a drilling contract with Diafor Inc., of Abitibi, Quebec for its 2021 Phase 2 drilling at the Chubb Lithium Project .

This drilling contract secures a diamond drill rig to be on the standby awaiting optimal winter drilling conditions at the Chubb project. The drilling will commence as soon as the ground is frozen as it will provide further access to continue its successful Spring Phase 1 drill program of this year. The contract is for a minimum of 5,000 metres with one drill rig and is strategically planned to continue to define the lithium bearing pegmatite to the south of the Main Dyke. Phase 1 drilling consisted of 15 diamond drill holes totalling 2,283 metres. All 15 completed drill holes intersected pegmatite and/or spodumene pegmatite with lithium values, with the Main Dyke values being of the greatest value and a key focus for continued drilling this winter.

The Spring 2021 drilling program defined the Main Dyke to over a length of more than 350 metres and was stopped short due to weather conditions. This drilling revealed that the grade and width of the lithium bearing pegmatite improved heading towards the south with 1.48% Li2O over 12.7 metres in Diamond Drill Hole ("DDH") 21-CH-15, the final spring hole drilled to the south.

For this winter 2021-2022 program, planned holes will be drilled on sections 50 metres apart and will be focused on the southern extension of the Main Dyke. Three to four holes are planned to be drilled on each section to verify the zone to a vertical depth of 100 metres, with several planned holes to be drilled to verify the pegmatite at a greater depth. The goal of this program is to confirm the continuity of the lithium bearing pegmatite and to potentially proceed with a preliminary resource evaluation.
