The Environment

Our goal is to minimize our environmental footprint and safeguard the environment for future generations. Responsible environmental management is central to our goal of becoming a leading gold prospecting and exploration company.

Community

In order to assist in the development of sustainable prosperity, the company is sensitive to better the communities in which it operates. As core values, we encourage youth and adult continuing education, as well as the importance of research and education relevant to the mining industry. Thunder Gold Corp recognizes the need to engage and build lasting relationships with communities located near our active project areas. Our model includes seizing the opportunity to create positive and transparent relationships that build trust, confidence and stronger, healthier communities.

Partnerships

Mineral exploration and development is a capital-intensive business that requires an ability to recognize and pursue opportunities. There is also a need to manage and reduce our shareholder’s exposure to potential risk. Thunder Gold Corp accomplishes both of these objectives, in part, by building relationships with peer companies and engaging the best contractors and consultants available whose values and abilities are aligned with, and complement, our own. Success is enhanced through our friendly business associations.
