    TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 17, 2015) - Thundermin Resources Inc. ("Thundermin") (TSX VENTURE:THR) announces that the agreement with QMX Gold Corporation ("QMX") with respect to the Pelletier Lake Gold Property located near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec ("Pelletier Lake") has been terminated and Thundermin's 100% ownership of Pelletier Lake has been re-instated.

    On September 1, 2005, Thundermin granted QMX an option to acquire a 100% interest in Pelletier Lake subject to, among other things, Thundermin's right to receive a 2.5% NSR once the property was put into commercial production (the "QMX Option"). The QMX Option was the subject of an arbitration process which in May 2014 determined that QMX's right to earn a 100% interest in Pelletier Lake was subject to QMX achieving commercial production at Pelletier Lake by February 28, 2018 and making certain annual advanced royalty payments to Thundermin by August 31st in each year until commercial production was achieved. QMX did not comply with the terms and conditions established by the arbitrator and as such on August 31, 2015 all of QMX's rights with respect to Pelletier Lake were terminated.

Wasamac Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    Gold mineralization on the Wasamac property was originally discovered in 1936 by Mine d'Or Champlain through surface trenching work. A considerable amount of exploration and development work has been carried out on the property since this time, and resulted in the discovery of several ore bodies. Intermittent production from the Wasamac Mine between 1965 and 1971 totaled 1,892,448 metric tons grading 4.16 g/t Au, for a total of 252,923 recovered ounces of gold, mostly from the Main Zone. On May 7, 1986, Ressources Minières Rouyn (now Richmont Mines Inc.) signed an option agreement with Lac Minerals, the property owners at the time. This agreement entitled Richmont to earn a 50% interest in the property by incurring exploration expenses of CAN $5.0 million. In 1992, Richmont acquired 100% ownership of the Wasamac property, at which time the Company began dewatering the pre-existing underground operations and completed additional surface drilling. Unfavourable economic conditions at the time, however, led to the project being shelved in 1994. Over the 2002 - 2004 period, 13,754 metres of surface drilling on this property intersected mineralization in the #2 East Zone, which lies within the Wasa Shear Zone. This drilling resulted in estimated Inferred Resources of 1,282,000 tonnes, grading 6.92 g/t Au, for 285,200 ounces of gold.
