Great Thunder Gold (GTG) has started drilling on its Southern Star Property in Quebec.

The Southern Star property is located along the Lower Detour deformation zone, part of the Sunday Lake-Detour crustal scale structural domain recognized for its relation to gold deposits in east central Quebec.

The Great Thunder inaugural drilling will focus on the north part of the Southern Star Property.

The targets that will be drilled are located approximately 6.5 kilometres south of Wallbridge Mining’s Fenelon Deposit and 9 kilometres south of their Tabasco and Area 51 gold zones.

The 2021 first-pass drill program will consist of four diamond drill holes targeting depths of 600 metres per hole for a total of about 2,400 metres.

Drill targets were selected based on geophysical conductive plate modelling.

“We are excited to launch our inaugural drilling program on Southern Star. New geophysical interpretation of conductive plates along the Lower Detour deformation zone and the fact that historical drilling failed to intersect these favourable horizons for mineralization provides opportunity for success for Great Thunder.

Wallbridge Mining has demonstrated that drilling beyond the confines of their deposit model continues to improve the overall viability of their deposit,” said Great Thunder Gold CEO Blair Naughty.

Great Thunder Gold is a junior Canadian mining exploration company focused on exploration and development along the Detour Gold trend in Quebec.

Great Thunder Gold is down 3.30 per cent on the day, with shares of the company trading at C$0.44 at 2:53 pm ET.
