Tudor Gold’s wholly owned 1,794 hectare Doc property lies 50 kilometers northwest of Stewart, British Columbia and was originally staked in 1946. Over 20 quartz veins were sampled, some running over half an ounce of gold per ton plus minor silver. Surface mapping, sampling and drilling, as well as underground development, sampling and drilling were completed during 1986-1988.
In 1988 Echo Bay Mines Ltd. tested the Q17 and Q22 veins and intersected previously undiscovered veins between the Q22 and Q28 veins with a 32 drill hole program comprising 3,074.1 meters. Underground development totaling 230 meters on the 1,160 meter level, along the strike of the Q17 vein west and east from the limit of the former workings was also completed, Along the Q17 West Drift, the development exposed a 30 meter strike length of sulphide-rich mineralization which occurs over a width varying between 1.2 and 2.0 meters.

This exploration was completed prior to Tudor's involvement in the Doc project and Tudor has not independently verified the assay results or the geological information. The historical information provided, although considered reliable and relevant, may be subject to future correction and should not be relied upon.
The shear zone that hosts the Q17 vein is vertical to steeply north dipping and strikes toward the west with an azimuth that varies between 280 and 295 degrees. Drilling has traced the Q17 vein over a strike length of 250 meters. The shear zone that hosts the Q17 vein varies between a few centimeters and 5 meters in width, with actual gold bearing vein mineralization averaging between 1.0 and 2.0 meters in width. The Q17 vein was tested by twenty drill holes during 1988 with seven holes returning gold values in excess of 0.1 ounces per ton (3.4 grams gold per tonne). Five holes did not intersect any vein, and four holes were abandoned prior to target depth.
Underground development has exposed the vein over a strike length of 170 meters. The deepest drill test, hole 86-5, cut a quartz stringer-altered zone 200 meters below surface.
The shear zone that hosts the Q22 vein is vertical to steeply dipping and strikes toward the west with an azimuth that varies between 290 and 300 degrees. Drilling has defined the Q22 vein as having a strike length of 200 meters. Underground development has only penetrated the vein with one crosscut. The vein continues to a depth averaging 75 meters beneath the surface and is erratic in width varying between 0.2 and 3.0 meters. The Q22 vein pinches at depth. The Q22 vein structure was tested in 1988 by thirteen drill holes. Four of those holes returned gold values greater than 0.1 ounces per ton (3.4 grams gold per tonne). Two holes failed to intersect any vein material and one hole was abandoned prior to target depth.
Results of this latest phase of testing outline a total Mineral Inventory of 100,851 tons (91,490 tonnes) grading 0.258 ounces per ton (8.85 grams gold per tonne) for Q17 and Q22 veins. The Company is not treating the mineral resource estimates as NI43-101 defined resources verified by a qualified person. The historical estimates should not be relied upon.
Drilling has tested the JT vein over a strike length of 100 meters. The strike of the vein varies between 300 and 310 degrees. The dip is assumed to be steep, and the vein has been tested to a vertical depth of 80 meters below surface. The average width of the vein varies between 1.0 and 2.0 meters. Drill information to date indicates the vein pinches both to the west and east. The JT vein was first intersected by hole 88-15 which was drilled to test the Q17 vein extension to the east. This vein lies approximately 50 metres grid south of the Q22 vein, between sections 100+150E and 100+260E. It was tested by seven holes, of which four returned anomalous but low gold values.
Two additional veins were intersected during the 1988 drill program. These veins were penetrated while testing for Q28. In both cases, narrow 0.3-0.6 meter veins were intersected near surface. Hole 88-27 and Hole 88-29 consist of quartz with sheared margins, limonitic fractures and pyrite. Hole 88-29 also contained 5 percent galena.
A one day prospecting program was conducted in 1999 which resulted in the discovery of sub-crop of the “BGS” quartz vein showing which assayed up to 44.66 g/t gold and 219 g/t silver.
