Great Thunder Gold Corp (CVE:GTG) has optioned 5,212 hectares in the area of Quebec comprising of 92 cells. The region adjoins Osisko Mining Inc., Melkior Resources Inc. and Beaufield Resources Inc.’s assets along strike and is close to Black Dog Project.
Great Thunder reported that an Osisko map of gold results showing 85-340 grains gold per 10 kilograms till marginal to Black Dog Project caught company’s attention. This Black Dog Assignment is stated by Osisko to be an important silver-copper-gold discovery in andesitic volcanics that overlaps with electromagnetic and magnetic anomalies linked with breccia-hosted quartz-tourmaline alteration and mineralization, with disseminated to semi-massive Ag-Cu-Au bearing sulfides. Latest Osisko news releases show that targeting EM irregularities has had achieved in their exploration initiatives on the Black Dog Project.
Great Thunder stated that a geophysical survey submitted with the Quebec government recognized a significant conductive trend with linked electromagnetic anomalies. The region optioned by company constitutes the northern half of the conductor mentioned in the description.
The electromagnetic signature was explained within the 1993 report as a long formational trend that does not follow with any of the geologic atlases of the region, visibly showing a complete re-evaluation of the rocks in this area will be required. The author of the report expressed the view that the conductive zone spreads westerly off the western assessment boundary and is believed to bend to the north northeast, maybe overlapping with the east shore of Lac Maseres.
Great Thunder President Kevin Whelan reported that the company is delighted to be part of this thrilling play. The geological and mineralization setting explained by Osisko in their nearby Black Dog Project shows that formational trends of EM conductors and conductivity within volcanic rocks in nearness to the Black Dog Project value exploration. Great Thunder expects an aggressive exploration program this year.
