Outlines Detailed, Drill-Ready Targets at Liwa

Thunderstruck Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AWE) ("Thunderstruck" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its intention to drill multiple high priority targets at its Liwa goldsilver prospect in Fiji. With the signing of a long-term drilling contract, drilling is set to commence in early Q3 2022. The company has outlined a seven-hole drill program designed to test the validity at depth of geophysical anomalies corresponding with surface mineralization.

"Our extensive, first-phase diamond drill program at Liwa this season is the culmination of years of work and geological study. It has been designed to most accurately test the significant surface geochemical and sub-surface geophysical anomalies that have made Liwa such an exciting prospect," noted President/CEO Bryce Bradley. "We can't thank our new and longstanding shareholders enough for remaining supportive through both natural disasters and the global turmoil that has lengthened this exciting journey."

The technical team hopes to intersect the geological features representing the source of mineralization by testing both the heart and periphery of the geophysical anomalies beneath defined surface mineralization. Each of the seven holes will offer valuable data to direct a continuous program of drilling with each hole more informed than the last.

Drilling has been designed to focus on four outcropping, gold-bearing hydrothermal breccia areas at Liwa, including Liwa Ridge, Jensen's, Vatuvatulevu (Vatu) and Gun. The information below is intended to educate and offer insight into the technical thought process behind each drill location and encourage shareholders to be active participants as the company grows.

Proposed Diamond Drilling (LIWA)
Proposed Hole ID Prospect Proposed Depth Details
Liwa 1A Liwa Ridge 300 Testing strong surface gold anomaly (71.3m @ 0.61g/t Au) and significant IP geophysical anomaly
Liwa 1B Liwa Ridge 300 Fanned drillhole using same pad as Liwa 1A
Liwa 2 Liwa Ridge 300 Testing strong surface gold anomaly (71.3m @ 0.61g/t Au) and significant geophysical IP anomaly
Liwa 3 Jensen's 300 Testing the highly prospective geology of the discovery outcrop, strong surface gold anomalies and significant geophysical anomaly below surface
Liwa 4 Vatu300 Testing the large zone of geochemical and geophysical anomalies that has returned grades of up to 41 g/t Au and 1205 g/t Ag
Liwa 5 Vatu300
Liwa 6 Gun 300 Testing strong surface geochemical anomalies and outcrops of highly prospective geology

Furthermore, the following images provide a topical view of each target and proposed drill hole, as well as various sections outlining the intended at-depth targets of the campaign.

Using this data, the company undertook a preliminary IP survey over each target to outline chargeable and resistive anomalies below surface, with intriguing initial results defining multiple target areas at similar target depths.

The above targeting was solidified by a property-wide 2021 soil sampling campaign at Liwa consisting of 1,400 soil samples covering a total of 11 square km. This systematic gridded survey, as opposed to the previous ridge-and-spur survey, confirmed priority targets and further defined the size and shape of surface targets. The survey returned values of up to 9.62 g/t Au and 48.8 g/t silver allowing for the following conclusions:

  • Liwa Ridge target continues to be the most prospective identified to date, with high-value, continuous gold anomalies in soils.
  • The anomaly at Vatu has been defined as a much more north/south-orientated structure than previous data defined, allowing for adjusted targeting for 2022 drilling.
  • The gridded sampling program has allowed the company to significantly develop its knowledge of the anomaly at Gun. It is possible that the geological feature that causes this gold anomaly splits into two or is two separate structures.
  • Ridge sampling in the far southern and northern areas of Liwa recognized gold anomalies that warrant further investigation during the 2022 season.
  • The results reinforce the notion that there is a significant silver content in the system that will likely play an important role in the future value of the Liwa prospect.

In addition, the company continues to systematically evaluate near-term drill targets at its Nakoro zinc/copper prospect, Rama (copper/gold), and Korokayiu, with more information expected to be provided in the coming months.

About Fiji

Fiji is on the Pacific Ring Of Fire, a prolific trend that has produced numerous large gold and copper deposits, including Porgera, Lihir and Grasberg.

Viti Levu, the main island of Fiji, has a long mining history. It hosts not only the Thunderstruck tenements, but also the following active projects:

Namosi (Copper/Gold) Newcrest published proven and probable reserves of 1.3 billion tonnes at 0.37%Cu and 0.12g/t Au (5.2M ounces Au and 4.9M tonnes Cu).

Tuvatu (Gold) Indicated Resources of 1 million tonnes at 8.48 g/t Au (274,600 ounces Au), and Inferred Resources of 1.33 million tonnes at 9.0 g/t Au (384,000 ounces Au) reported at a 3.0 g/t Au lower cut-off.

Vatukoula Gold Mines: Formerly known as the Emperor Gold Mine has been operating for over 80 years, producing in excess of 7 million ounces of Au to date.

Top 5 Junior Silver Stocks on the TSXV in 2022

Click here to read the previous best junior silver stocks article.

Silver saw a strong run in the first quarter of the year, reaching a year-to-date high of US$26.36 per ounce, but it fell throughout Q2 to sit around the US$21 mark.

The Investing News Network spoke with Peter Krauth, editor of Silver Stock Investor, at this year's Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada convention. He said realistically silver could hit US$25 this year, or a little higher.

"I think that (investment demand is) going to be kind of the wild card that could really push silver much higher," Krauth explained. "People are going to get excited about gold, and they're going to look for an alternative."

Peter Krauth, editor of Silver Stock Investor, has a long-term silver price target of US$300 per ounce. But what does he see coming for the white metal in 2022?

Speaking at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, Krauth said he thinks a realistic move for silver this year would be "to at least US$25, or a little bit north of US$25."

In his opinion, industrial demand will create a key price floor, while investment demand will be less predictable.
