We interviewed notable mining exploration expert, A. Lee Barker MSc. P. Eng, a technical advisor and a Qualified Person for Dynasty Gold Corp. to give our shareholders a better idea about the Thundercloud gold project. Mr. Barker brings over 60 years of international mineral exploration and development experience with significant familiarity with the area that Thundercloud is based.
The Thundercloud Property is located in the central Wabigoon greenstone belt in Western Ontario. The geological setting is analogous to the Abitibi belt in Eastern Ontario but Thundercloud is much less explored. The belt contains numerous gold showings, several deposits and historic past producers including the Big Master Mine (1902-1943) and the Laurentian Mine (1906-1909). Results to date indicate excellent potential to define bulk-tonnage orogenic gold mineralization with potential for high grade mineralization. Close to 30 M oz of gold has been discovered in the area in recent years.
The Property consists of 2,250 hectares, located 47 kilometres southeast of Dryden, northern Ontario. It is readily accessible from the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy 17). Dryden is a resource-based town with excellent infrastructure necessary for mining operations. Several large scale mining operations in the area include New Gold's Rainy River Mine (6.4 million oz gold and 18.7 million oz silver), and Evolution Mining's Red Lake Gold Mine (9.25 million oz gold) as well as several multi-million ounce gold reserves, defined at the Canadian Malartic Hammond Reef deposit (5.8 million oz gold) by Agnico Eagle, and First Mining Gold's Springpole deposit (4.9 million oz gold).
