Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 10, 2024) – GOLD HUNTER RESOURCES INC. (CSE: HUNT) (OTC Pink: GHREF) (the “Company” or “Gold Hunter”), a Canadian exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration, and development of precious and base metal projects, is pleased to announce its strategic exploration plans for the newly consolidated Great Northern Project in Newfoundland, Canada.

Strategic Exploration and Data Integration

Gold Hunter is consolidating and integrating geological data from partner organizations and individuals, government archives, and newly acquired information. The Company has engaged the expertise of Magna Terra Minerals Inc. technical team and Mercator Geological Services of Nova Scotia, both known for their extensive knowledge and track records in the region. Mercator Geological Services will complete an NI 43-101 report of the combined project and establish a robust geological database for the entire district.

Potential and Initial Exploration

The Company anticipates the detailed database of the district’s geological information to be compiled in the coming weeks. Investors can anticipate a full website update along with new investor tools following that. Gold Hunter will commence planning its initial exploration program on this newly consolidated land package, which includes already-defined drill targets in multiple areas, allowing for the commencement of drilling this summer.

Gold Hunter’s Consolidated Gold District: The Great Northern Project in Newfoundland, Canada

Gold Hunter’s President & CEO, Sean A. Kingsley, stated, “We are excited to develop the Great Northern Project together with mutual partners. This represents a significant opportunity for Gold Hunter and its shareholders and stakeholders to explore a growing gold district in Newfoundland. Magna Terra has advanced the Great Northern – Viking Project to this pivotal stage, and with our consolidation of the Doucer’s Valley Fault, we are well-positioned to unlock the potential of the area. We aim to release our initial NI 43-101 report, followed by our strategic exploration program plan for the Great Northern Project shortly.”

About the Great Northern Project

The Great Northern Project is situated near Sops Arm, Pollard’s Point, and Jackson’s Arm, Newfoundland and Labrador. The Project encompasses a 40 km section of the Doucers Valley Fault, a key geological feature known to host numerous gold occurrences, including the Thor and Rattling Brook Deposits, historic Browning Mine and at least twelve mineralized trends throughout the project area. Gold mineralization is hosted in various lithologies, from Precambrian or Ordovician granites to younger volcanic and sedimentary rocks, typically found along splays off the Doucers Valley Fault.

The Doucers Valley Fault extends from Ireland to New Brunswick and plays a crucial role in the region’s geology. This fault system, part of a larger network associated with the closing of the Iapetus Ocean, has influenced mineralization patterns across Newfoundland. Multiple reactivation phases of the fault have contributed to the region’s rich mineral deposits, including those on the Great Northern Project.
