Thundermin to Issue Shares Under Option Agreement Covering the Stirling Base Metal Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/01/14 -- Thundermin Resources Inc. ("Thundermin") (TSX VENTURE: THR) announces that it intends to issue 50,000 common shares to each of two venders, for a total of 100,000 common shares, as required on the third anniversary of an option agreement dated July 7, 2011 between the vendors and Thundermin (the "Agreement") covering the Stirling base metal property located on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia (see Thundermin's news releases dated June 23, July 21 and December 5, 2011 and July 24 and November 1, 2012 and Thundermin's website at www.thundermin.com for more details on the Stirling property and the Agreement).

Stirling Property

The Stirling property consists of 404 claims covering approximately 15 kms of favourable volcanic stratigraphy trending southwest from the past-producing Stirling Mine which consisted of several massive sulphide lenses containing over 1,000,000 tonnes of ore grading 6.3% Zn, 1.5% Pb, 0.8% Cu, 74.0 g/t Ag and 1.1 g/t Au.

During the third quarter of 2012, Thundermin completed an initial diamond drilling program consisting of 1,888 m of drilling in six holes. The most significant copper mineralization was intersected in the Taylor's Brook area approximately 10 km southeast of the Stirling Mine. This mineralization, which consists of chalcopyrite stringers within a siliceous, uniformly massive, quartz-feldspar porphyry assayed 2.4% Cu over 0.9 m and 1.7% Cu over 1.0 m, within a wider zone assaying 0.93% Cu over 5.15 m, and 1.2% Cu over 0.5 m.

During the third quarter of 2014, Thundermin intends to undertake a program of line-cutting, induced polarization and magnetic geophysical surveying, geological mapping and prospecting over a portion of the Stirling claims adjacent to the Stirling Mine. The purpose of the program is to trace an area containing talcose, pyritic felsic pyroclastics which is believed to be prospective for the occurrence of base metal sulphides. A narrow zone of pyritic sulphides within these rocks, which has never been followed up by drilling, returned 4.03 ounces of silver with highly anomalous copper in a shallow, historical drill hole.

Qualified Person

Mr. Douglas Hunter, MSc., P.Geo., President of Earthunt Resources Inc., Mr. Hunter's private consulting company, is the Q.P. responsible for the supervision of the exploration program conducted by Thundermin on the Stirling property for the purposes of NI 43-101. Mr. Hunter has reviewed the contents of this news release for accuracy and approved of its release.
