TUDOR GOLD intersects 1.215 GPT AUEQ over 354.0 meters within 1225.5 meters of 0.702 GPT AUEQ (hole GS-20-94) and 1.078 GPT AUEQ over 345.0 meters within 921.0 meters of 0.821 GPT AUEQ (hole GS-20-83) at the Goldstorm Zone, Treaty Creek, Northwest B.C.
TUDOR GOLD’s Vice President of Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., states: “We are very pleased with the results obtained from all 39 drill holes completed this year to-date and we anticipate the release of the final 11 holes of the year within a few weeks. This brings the total to 50 drill holes that were completed this year at the Goldstorm Zone. These latest holes continued to expand the limits of the mineralized targets along the northeastern and the southeastern axes, and to depth. For a fifth consecutive press release, we have surpassed our best result from last years’ drill hole program (0.697 AuEq over 1081.5 meters in hole GS-19-47) with drill holes GS-20-83 and GS-20-94 as described in the headline. The final 11 drill holes represent over 9600 meters of drilling and we expect that MSA Labs will complete the analysis of these final samples as soon as possible.”
Treaty Creek Highlights include:
- Twelve drill holes presented in this press release total 11,551.1 meters
- The best results were from GS-20-94, a near-surface 354.0 meter intercept (36.0-390 m) averaging 1.215 gpt AuEq and GS-20-82 with a 351m intercept (113.0-464.0 m) averaging 1.051 gpt AuEq. Both holes are located on Section 111+00 NE.
- Equally impressive was drill hole GS-20-83 that also had a near-surface intercept over a similar 345.0 meters (73.5-418.5 m) that averaged 1.078 gpt AuEq on Section 112+50 NE.
- More Core Drilling did an excellent job completing 50 HQ/NQ2 diamond drill holes totaling 43,972 meters at Goldstorm and 1,636 meters at the Perfect Storm Target with three drill holes.

Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: “We are very pleased to announce the safe successful completion of our 2020 diamond drill hole program. We completed over four times the amount of drilling from the previous year’s program, greatly advancing TUDOR’s flagship Treaty Creek Property. We completed almost 44,000 meters of drilling at the Goldstorm System and over 1,600 meters of drilling at the Perfect Storm target. Once we receive the final results from the last eleven drill holes, we will then pass the data to our resource engineers and geoscientists for an initial resource estimate. Continued drilling is required for 2021 to locate the limits or edges of the mineralized system. Due to the size and robust nature of the mineralization, the Goldstorm System remains open on all fronts and to depth. We are proud of what we have achieved in these last two years of exploration and in-particular, the great effort to withstand the harsh winter elements during November and December at Treaty Creek to bring the 2020 drill campaign to a safe close. Our commitment is to continue to advance the project as quickly as possible. We have left the track-drill carriage components for two track-mounted drill rigs on-site so our team can get an early start to the 2021 drill season. We look forward to receiving the final results of the eleven drill holes from MSA Labs within a couple of weeks to complete the 2020 exploration season on schedule.”
TUDOR GOLD Corp and our associated service companies have taken extreme measures to maintain the highest professional standards while working within COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
Drill core samples were prepared at MSA Labs’ Preparation Laboratory in Terrace, BC and assayed at MSA Labs’ Geochemical Laboratory in Langley, BC. Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored by the submission of blanks, certified standards and duplicate samples inserted at regular intervals into the sample stream by Tudor Gold personnel. MSA Laboratories quality system complies with the requirements for the International Standards ISO 17025 and ISO 9001. MSA Labs is independent of the Company.
