Thundermin Executes Formal Agreement to Earn a 100% Interest in a Large Portion of the Stirling Zinc-Lead-Copper-Silver-Gold Massive Sulphide Belt, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 21, 2011) - Thundermin Resources Inc. ("Thundermin") (TSX:THR) announces that it has executed a formal agreement (the "Agreement") with two vendors (the "Vendors") giving Thundermin the right to acquire a 100% interest in eight Exploration Licences (404 claims over 64.6 km²) (the "Stirling Property") which cover a large portion of the Stirling volcanogenic massive zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold sulphide belt located on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia (see Thundermin's news release dated June 23, 2011 for additional details on the terms of the Agreement and the Stirling property).

The Stirling Property covers approximately 13 kms of favourable volcanic stratigraphy trending south- southwest from the past-producing Mindamar Mine. The Mindamar Mine, which was mined in the 1930's and in the 1950's, consisted of numerous massive sulphide lenses which contained 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. Thundermin believes that there is excellent potential to make additional precious metal rich, polymetallic base metal discoveries on the Stirling Property.

John B. Heslop, President & CEO of Thundermin said "We are extremely pleased to have acquired this significant land package covering an area that we feel is highly prospective for the discovery of precious metal rich, zinc-lead-copper deposits. No substantial exploration work has been undertaken on the property since the early 1990's and we believe that, with the employment of today's advanced geophysical techniques, the potential exists for the discovery of additional deposits on the property. The Stirling Property is an early stage project that will complement our more advanced stage Little Deer copper project in Newfoundland".

Planning is currently underway for an initial exploration program consisting of line cutting, prospecting, geological mapping and DEEPEM and IP geophysical surveying over key target areas. It is anticipated that this work, which is designed to identify drill targets, will commence in August and continue into the fall of 2011.
