TUDOR GOLD responds to COVID-19
VANCOUVER, BC, March 24, 2020 – Tudor Gold Corp. (TSXV: TUD) (Frankfurt: TUC) (the “Company” or “Tudor Gold”) is pleased to announce that the company has sufficient funds to execute a significantly larger drilling and exploration program, than the 2019 program, on the Goldstorm Zone at Treaty Creek project this year. With the capital raised in December 2019, as well as the recent warrants exercises, the Company has a good cash position to execute a fully funded and very ambitious drill program at Treaty Creek this year. The company is currently in the final stages of finalizing all preparations needed for the upcoming 2020 drill program at Treaty Creek.
Tudor Gold’s Vice President of Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., states: “The Goldstorm system is currently open at depth and along the northeast axis of the mineralized body. The drill program is designed to extend and to explore the limits of Goldstrom system to the southeast as well as to the northeast and to depth. We anticipate drilling approximately 18,000 to 20,000 metres of HQ and NQ diameter core from 7-10 drill platforms with four diamond drill rigs. Compared to the drill program last year (14 diamond drill holes over 9,781.8 meters), the planned 2020 drill program will be much larger.”
The current known length of the northeast axis of the Goldstorm System is over 850 meters long and the southeast axis is at least 600m across. The system remains open in all directions and to depth. The best mineralization encountered to date is from the two consecutive 150m step-out holes to the Northeast: GS-19-42 yielded 0.849 g/t Au Eq over 780 m with 1.275 g/t Au Eq over 370.5m and GS-19-47 yielded 0.697 g/t Au Eq over 1,081.5m with 0.867 g/t Au Eq over 301.5m.
The best southeast extension came from GS-19-52 which yielded 0.783 g/t Au Eq over 601.5m intercept with 1.062 g/t Au Eq over 336.0m intercept. (results from the company’s NR dated March 3rd, 2020).
