Tudor Gold Corp. Announces First Hole into GR2 Zone at Treaty Creak
Intersects Stratabound Mineralization Grading 5.1 Metres of 9.57 g/t Gold
August 8, 2017 - Tudor Gold Corp. (TSX.V: TUD) (Frankfurt: TUC) (the “Company” or “Tudor Gold”) is pleased to announce that a new zone of gold-bearing mineralization has been discovered on the Treaty Creek property (the "Treaty Creek Property"), situated north of the KSM property of Seabridge Gold and the Brucejack property of Pretium Resources in the Golden Triangle region of northwestern British Columbia. Tudor holds a 60% interest in, and is the Operator of, the Treaty Creek Property.
The new zone was intersected in Hole HC-17-01 designed to test for northern extensions of GR2 zone mineralization as encountered in previous drilling in 2007 and 2009. Hole HC-17-01 intersected a stratabound, brecciated and silicified sulphide venting zone containing tetrahedrite, Sb-sulphosalts and pyrite located at the contact between an upper pervasively hydrothermally altered volcaniclastic unit and a footwall mudstone unit. The entire interval from 247.3 to 254.45m returned 7.15m of 6.20 g/t gold, including the venting zone—1.05m of 4.12 g/t gold from 247.3 to 248.35m---and the vented sulphides in the immediate footwall mudstones—5.1m of 9.57 g/t gold from 249.35m to 254.45m. True widths are uncertain at this time.
Five additional holes have been completed on this target at the Treaty Creek Property and assays are pending. Concurrently, drilling is proceeding with a second drill on the adjacent Copper Belle zone on porphyry gold and gold-copper targets. A third drill is being mobilized to the Treaty Creek Property.
Walter Storm, President and CEO of Tudor Gold commented as follows: "We are very encouraged by the results from the first hole into this target, particularly as it appears gold mineralization is extending

Tudor's procedures are designed to meet "Best Practices Guidelines" and National Instrument 43-101 standards of disclosure. QA/QC protocols for drill core sampling and assaying include the insertion and monitoring of appropriate reference materials (certified standards, blanks and duplicates) to validate the accuracy and precision of the assay results.
All drilling samples were collected using a diamond HQ or NQ core drilling rig following industry standard practice. Activation Laboratories Ltd. prepared and assayed the samples at their laboratory in Kamloops, B.C. Gold samples are analyzed by a 30g Fire Assay method, then if Au>10 gpt is re-analysed by 30g Fire Assay with AAS finish. Ag is analysed by 0.5g Aqua Regia digestion, ICP-OES (along with other elements). Then if Ag>100ppm is automatically re-analysed by 30g FA with gravimetric finish.
The technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by the Company's Exploration Manager, Raul Sanabria, M.Sc., EurGeol., P.Geo., who is a "Qualified Person" as defined under National Instrument 43-101.
