Toronto, Ontario, March 24, 2022 – Blue Thunder Mining Inc. (TSXV:BLUE, OTCQB:BLTMF) (“Blue Thunder” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has fulfilled the terms of its option agreement with Resources Tectonic Inc. (“Tectonic”) and has earned a 100% ownership interest in the Tectonic property (the “Property”), which comprises 47 claims covering approximately 2,600 hectares, contiguous with the southern part of Blue Thunder’s Muus property, in the Chibougamau District of Québec.
The Property is geologically prospective, as it is situated on trend and approximately 20 km west-northwest of the recent Nelligan gold discovery, a joint-venture between Iamgold Corporation and Vanstar Mining Resources Ltd., which hosts NI 43-101 Inferred Resources of 97 million tonnes grading 1.0 gram per tonne of gold, equivalent to 3.2 million ounces of gold.(1)
Jean Francois Metail, President of Blue Thunder commented “Blue Thunder’s Muus property is strategically positioned in a highly prospective gold camp, which hosts Iamgold’s Nelligan and Northern Superior Resources’ Lac Surprise gold deposits; two significant recent discoveries. Importantly, the Tectonic property occurs within the same belt of Caopatina metasediments as both deposits and is proximal to major regional structures that are believed to play an important role in controlling gold mineralization at these two locations. For this reason, we are very pleased to have completed our earn-in of the Tectonic property, as it enhances our strategic land position in a highly fertile camp.”
Tectonic retains a 2% Net Smelter Returns (NSR) royalty, of which half (i.e., 1% NSR) can be repurchased by Blue Thunder under certain conditions and upon commencement of commercial production of any minerals on the property.

About Blue Thunder
Blue Thunder (TSXV:BLUE, OTCQB:BLTMF) is a gold exploration company that controls 100% of one of the largest land positions near the Chapais-Chibougamau gold district (the “District”) of Quebec, a historic camp with significant historical production and major recent discoveries. The Muus Gold project is underlain by the two major regional trends hosting IAMGOLD’s Nelligan and Northern Superior Resources’ Lac Surprise projects to the south and IAMGOLD’s Monster Lake project to the north, with excellent highway and road access. The Muus Gold project covers approximately 51,000 hectares in five separate blocks of prospective ground in the eastern part of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt and is considered particularly prospective for gold mineralization, as a series of prominent ductile and brittle fault-sets transect the Property, including the Guercheville and Fancamp deformation zones, both of which are associated with numerous past and currently producing precious and base metal mines in the District.
