The Southern Star Property:

Great Thunder Completes Due Diligence and Acquires the Southern Star Property, 6.5km South of the Wallbridge Mining’s Fenelon Deposit
Southern Star Geology
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.
Pursuant to two definitive agreements dated June 13, 2020, Great Thunder acquired a 100% interest, subject to a 3% net smelter returns royalty, in the Southern Star property from the vendors by paying $12,500 and issuing 450,100 common shares.
Great Thunder can purchase 2% (or 2/3) of the net smelter returns royalty at any time for $3,000,000.
