Blue Thunder Identifies High Priority Target At Muus

View PDF

Montréal, Québec, February 13, 2024 – Blue Thunder Mining Inc. (TSXV: BLUE) (“Blue Thunder” or the “Company”) announces that it has identified the Lac Bernard area as a high priority target as it continues planning for its upcoming exploration program on the Muus Project near Chibougamau, Québec.

The Company’s CEO, Dorian L. (Dusty) Nicol, commented, “Our ongoing review of existing geological, geochemical, and geophysical data has identified the area around Lac Bernard, in the western part of the project, as a high priority target. Gold in glacial till anomalies in the Lac Bernard area are among the highest ever recorded in Québec and hydrothermal alteration observed in drill core from 2022 drilling confirms the possibility of Nelligan-style gold mineralization in that area. IAMGOLD’s multi-million-ounce Nelligan gold deposit is adjacent to our Muus Project and on the same geologic trend. I am excited to be working in collaboration with IAMGOLD and renewing our exploration in this highly prospective area.”
