June 3rd, 2020, Vancouver, British Columbia – Great Thunder Gold Corp. (TSXV: GTG OTC: MLBVF FSE: M4KQ-FF) (“Great Thunder” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the start of its first exploration programs on its Northbound & Northbound Extension properties.

“We are excited on getting boots on the ground for our first exploration program. We believe in developing our projects with a systematic approach. We will start with geophysics so we can get a better understanding of the magnetic/geological strike and features of our two properties. We can then compare these features with the surrounding developments, like the Fenelon Deposit, Tabasco Deposit, Area 51 discovery and the Reaper discovery. The Jeremie Pluton is a multiphase mainly granodioritic pluton. The Area 51 discovery by Balmoral (now Wallbridge) shows that gold mineralized zones extend in the Jeremie Pluton, showing its potential. The area covered by Northbound and Northbound Extension properties are entirely located in the pluton and they have not been explored in the past. With all the data evaluated and analyzed we will plan to have our geological team on the ground shortly,” commented Great Thunder’s lead geologist Donald Théberge, P. Eng.
Great Thunder has contracted Prospectair Geosurveys Inc. (“Prospectair”), an industry leader in Airborne Geophysical Exploration, owned and operated by Alain Tremblay, one of the most renowned operators in our industry and based in Gatineau, Quebec.
The airborne survey is designed to properly map the dominant magnetic/geological strike, and with a 50-metre line spacing. The survey distance will total 853 line-kms, of which 329 line-kms will be used to cover the Northbound property and 524 line-kms will be used to cover the Northbound Extension property. This amount of survey lines will entirely cover both property borders.
The Prospectair crew will base their operations at the past producing Selbaie Mine, near the Southern Star property.
Rich Macey, Great Thunder’s CEO stated, “We are fortunate to have excellent infrastructure and partners in this district, and province. Luckily, our technical team are based in Quebec as well as our vendors, we are taking every step necessary to carry out our exploration programs safely. We will fully comply with health and safety measures recommended by Government, INSPQ and CNESST regulations governing mineral exploration activities in Quebec.”
