September 29th, 2020, Vancouver, British Columbia – Great Thunder Gold Corp. (CSE: GTG OTC: GTGFF FSE: M4KQ-FF) (“Great Thunder” or the “Company”) is pleased to report the interpretation results of the airborne survey data on its Northbound, Northbound Extension (now combined to be referred as the “Northbound Project”) & the Southern Star Project in the Fenelon Gold Camp of Quebec, Canada.
The Company contracted Campbell and Walker Geophysics Limited to analyze and interpret the completed airborne survey conducted by Prospectair Geosurveys Inc. The survey and subsequent interpretation have successfully identified multiple structures of interest within the Jeremie Pluton on the Northbound Property as well as 5 conductive zones on the Southern Star Property.
A 569 line-kilometre heliborne magnetic survey was carried out at 50m line spacings. The Northbound Property encompasses the Jeremie Pluton within which Wallbridge Mining has intersected high grade gold near the contact with surrounding volcanics. The Northbound magnetic survey was successful in identifying several arcuate features suggestive of zoning with the pluton as well as potential faults and structural breaks to target in follow-up programs.

Southern Star Property
A total of 1359 line-kilometres of helicopter magnetics and time domain electro-magnetic (“EM”) at its Southern Star Property at 100m line spacings. The Southern Star magnetic survey identified a number of breaks and offsets and helped to better define lithological contacts within the greenstone package. The EM survey highlighted 5 conductive zones in the north and west of the property. In the north, 4 conductors appear to be associated with the flanks of a mafic volcanic unit where it is in contact with intermediate tuffs and graphitic horizons. In the west, a conductor is associated with graphitic schists along the Bapst Fault.

A limited amount of historical work has taken place along these conductors which will be incorporated into further 3D conductive plate modelling in order to generate drill targets ahead of a winter drill program.
