Quote from Great Thunder Gold’s CEO
“The Fenelon Gold camp has been an attractive mineralized camp as Wallbridge Mining, Balmoral Resources, and others have been successful in discovering high-grade gold in drill intercepts. Our technical team is familiar with this part of Quebec. We made our first land acquisition on February 4th, 2020, and our third on April 21st, 2020 (pending completion of due diligence), and believe we are well-positioned. With cash already in the treasury, we are excited to get our team onto the projects as soon as possible to commence the first exploration program,” stated Great Thunder’s CEO Rich Macey.
