TUDOR GOLD DRILLS NEW BEST INTERCEPT FOR TREATY CREEK PROPERTY AVERAGING 0.845 gpt AuEq OVER 973 METERS FROM HOLE GS-20-57, INCLUDING 1.40 gpt AuEq OVER 217.5 METERS
TUDOR GOLD’s Vice President of Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., states: “The priority was to expand the Goldstorm System to the southeast and to the northeast, however drilling began in the central and southwest areas where grades were weaker within the overall system. The objective was to either expand the known area of mineralization or to define its limits. We were pleasantly surprised to see the strength of mineralization encountered in drill hole GS-20-57 which has an enriched interval that averages 1.40 gpt AuEq over 217.5 meters (544.5 to 762.0 meters). The entire intercept has a composite average of 0.845 gpt AuEq over 973.05m (34.50 to 1077.55 meters). We were confident that we could surpass our former best intercept of GS-19-47 with 0.697 gpt AuEq over 1081.5 meters, but we never thought we’d find such a wide extent of mineralization in the central-southwest portion of the system. As well, we attempted to expand the limits in the southeast part of the system where we had some elevated spikes in gold grades from our 2019 drilling. Two of our first five drill holes cut Visible Gold in holes GS-20-55 and GS-20-58 on Section 110+00 NE. The highest gold value was from GS-20-55 with 37.7 gpt Au and 44.8 gpt Ag over 1.0 meter (428.5 to 429.5 meters). The native gold occurrences both came from the CS-600 Zone which has an enriched portion that averages 1.34 gpt AuEq over 69.0 meters from 360.5 to 429.5 meters. The northeastern extension to Goldstorm is the main event of this program and we will begin drilling this area in mid-July.”
Ken Konkin, P.Geo adds: “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, and it remains open in all directions and to depth. Apart from GS-20-57, the strongest mineralization encountered to date is from the two consecutive 150m step-out holes drilled to the northeast in 2019: GS-19-42 yielded 0.849 g/t Au Eq over 780 m within the 300 Horizon including 1.275 g/t Au Eq over 370.5m, and GS-19-47 yielded 0.697 g/t Au Eq over 1,081.5m within the 300 Horizon including 0.867 g/t Au Eq over 301.5m. The exploration program will now be focused on expanding mineralization from these two exceptional step-out holes with three drills. We plan to continue stepping forward along the NE axis with yet another 150 meter step out hole, as well as fill-in drilling from the sites of GS-19-42 and GS-20-47. The geological model is evolving; it is apparent that there have been several pulses or phases of stronger gold, copper and silver mineralization that give the Goldstorm System its nebulous shape of interconnected disseminated and veinlet stockworks. It is clear that we also need to expand drilling to the southwest given the results obtained from GS-20-57. The plan includes drilling beneath the GS-20-57 intercept with hopes of expanding the excellent results obtained within this portion of the Goldstorm System.”
The two tables below provide the complete list of drill hole results as well as the drill hole data including hole location, elevation, depth, dip and azimuth. The four sections included at the bottom of the news release and on the Company’s website show the new drill holes plotted on their respective sections.
- All assay values are uncut and intervals reflect drilled intercept lengths.
- HQ and NQ2 diameter core samples were sawn in half and typically sampled at standard 1.5m intervals
- The following metal prices were used to calculate the Au Eq metal content: Gold $1322/oz, Ag: $15.91/oz, Cu: $2.86/lb. Calculations used the formula Au Eq g/t = (Au g/t) + (Ag g/t x 0.012) + (Cu% x 1.4835). All metals are reported in USD and calculations do not consider metal recoveries. True widths have not been determined as the mineralized body remains open in all directions. Further drilling is required to determine the mineralized body orientation and true widths.
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. Only essential personnel are permitted to enter the camp and staging areas. Of those who are at the project site and staging site, we have strict daily monitoring of the workers’ temperatures and general health conditions. We have a certified paramedic at the staging area to examine all in-coming and out-going Tudor personnel and all service providers.
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.
