Thunder Sword and Tribune Initiate Drill Program at Botham Lake, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan



    VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, April 17 /CNW/ - Thunder Sword Resources
Inc. (TSX VENTURE:THU), is pleased to announce that it has secured the
necessary contractors to proceed with the stage one drill program on its
Botham Lake prospect, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. The program will be
initiated in May 2007 through August of 2007 and will consist of the Company
defining target drill locations. These locations will be identified by
management and third party advisors having regard to historical, airborne and
ground geophysical data obtained by the Company to date, and as identified by
conductors in the four earlier established grids (Grids B1, B2, B45, and B79).
The airborne conductors as noted in earlier releases are quite apparent on all
four grids. In addition to these strong airborne conductors, secondary (and
tertiary, on B1) conductive trends were identified on follow up ground
geophysics which were not apparent from the airborne data.

    The Phase 1 drilling of the target areas is expected to commence on or
about August 1, 2007 and will consist of a 4000 meter drill program. The cost
of the program is estimated to be approximately $1,000,000 and will be funded
by Tribune Resources (TCB) as part of its $1.5 million 2007 expenditure
program required under the joint venture option agreement currently being
negotiated with the Company.
