TUDOR GOLD intersects 2.006 g/t gold over 87 meters with a near-surface intercept of 1.004 g/t gold over 336 meters in drill hole GS19-52 and drills 826.5 meters of 0.696 g/t gold with drill hole GS19-49 in the Goldstorm zone at Treaty Creek
The results of the five final holes are reported below. Hole GS19-49 was drilled to 960.1 m, at -80° dip, on Section 111+00 NE next to the previously announced vertical hole GS19-48, which yielded 0.725 g/t Au over 838.5m, including an upper horizon that averaged 1.048 g/t gold Au over 328.5 m. Hole GS19-49 returned equally impressive results with a comparable 0.696 g/t Au over 826.5 m and the upper horizon averaging 0.998 g/t Au over 249 m. Along the same section, hole GS19-52 (-50° dip at 115° azimuth) was drilled much longer than expected because the Goldstorm System continues at least 700 m to the southeast ; GS19-52 averaged 1.004 g/t gold over 336 meters with a higher grade core of 2.006 g/t gold over 87 meters within the upper horizon.
Furthermore, Mr. Konkin adds: “We are seeing consistent silver and copper mineralization associated with the deeper gold horizons such as the previously reported 151.5 m zone of 0.572 g/t gold, 8.5 g/t silver and 0.21% copper that was intercepted from 665.0 to 816.5 m in GS19-47 and a 66.0 m zone with 0.958 g/t gold, 3.9 g/t silver and 0.35% copper, which was intercepted from 874.5 to 940.5 m in GS19-48. Similarly, we have now seen in GS19-49, a 78 m intercept averaging 1.145 g/t gold, 11.2 g/t silver and 0.21% copper (750-828 m) and in GS19-52 an 88.5 m interval averaging 0.352 g/t gold, 9.3 g/t silver and 0.25% copper (515-603.5 m). Not only does the Goldstorm Zone remain open at depth and along strike, we are now seeing base-metal associations possibly as part of a zonation within the hydrothermal system.”
The final three footwall extension holes (GS19-50, GS19-51 and GS19-53) were completed on section 110+00 NE. These were successful in extending the width of the mineralized zone to the southeast:
- Hole GS19-50 returned an average of 0.602 g/t Au over 577.5 m including 0.811 g/t Au over 267.0 m in the ‘300 Horizon’.
- Hole GS19-51 returned an average of 0.721 g/t Au over 246 m in the ‘300 Horizon’ and a lower horizon that averages 1.017 g/t Au over 40.5 m.
- Hole GS19-53 returned an average of 0.984 g/t Au over 147.0 m in the ‘300 Horizon’. GS19-53 was stopped in gold mineralization due to inclement end-of-season weather.
Table l provides gold composites from five drill holes recently completed on two sections that cut the Goldstorm Zone and Table ll provides the drill collar data, including drill hole location, elevation, inclination, azimuth and hole length. Results for other holes on the sections have been reported previously.

Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: “I am very pleased that the safe and successful 2019 exploration program has concluded on such a positive note. All 14 exploration drill holes hit their targets and they all returned very good results. The consistency of the mineralized intercepts from hole to hole is equally impressive. This years’ drill program has vastly increased the known size of the Goldstorm mineralized body but further drilling is essential to define the full length, width and depth of the system which still remains open in all directions.”
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.
