Great Thunder Gold Corp. (TSXV: GTG) is pleased to announce that it has received assay results from its drilling program at its 100%-owned Chubb Lithium Project located approximately 32 kilometres north of Val d’Or, Quebec, which was announced on January 23, 2018.
Highlights from Hole C-17-01 include 1.33% of lithium oxide (Li2O) over 5.3 metres and 1.15% Li2O over 2.1 metres. Hole C-17-02 yielded 0.9% Li2O over 3.6 metres. Following are the complete results.
Great Thunder’s President, Kevin Whelan, said, “We are excited by the assay results from our recent drilling program. Not only did we confirm historical data, but we extended the depth of lithium-bearing pegmatites.”
The three holes, totaling 306 metres, were drilled from December 8 to December 13 to verify several induced polarization anomalies previously located on the showings area. The holes were drilled with an azimuth of 60 degrees and a dip at collar of -45 degrees, and were spaced approximately 100 metres apart. All lengths reported are core length and insufficient work has been done to establish the true width of the pegmatites.
A total of 74 samples were collected and sent to the ALS Laboratory in Val d’Or, Quebec. Several blanks were added as a measure of control for contamination, no standards for Li2O were used except those included by the laboratory. Samples were assayed using protocol ME-MS89L, which is a multi-elements package specially developed for lithium in pegmatites analysis using sodium peroxide fusion and ICP-MS methodology. ALS released the analytical results for lithium in ppm lithium; for clarity the Company has reported the results as Li2O, using a conversion factor of 2.153.
