TUDOR GOLD Reports 149.1m of 1.78 g/t Gold at Treaty Creek, Including 59.2m of 2.84 g/t Gold
Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: “The outstanding interval of gold mineralization in Hole CB-17-26–149m of 1.78 g/t gold–contains the highest average gold grade yet recorded for porphyry style mineralization on the Treaty Creek property. It also ranks among the top tier, in terms of gold grades, of the hundreds of holes drilled during the past fifteen years into multiple porphyry targets on the adjoining KSM and Brucejack-Snowfield properties of Seabridge Gold and Pretium Resources, part of the same, large hydrothermal “Sulphurets” system. The fact that we have achieved these kinds of grades in only our second year after acquiring Treaty Creek speaks both to the potential of the property and also the expertise of our geological staff. This hole will serve to further guide our exploration at Copper Belle in 2018, as well as the more than 3km of ground yet to be explored between the Copper Belle and the Iron Cap Zone of Seabridge Gold to the south, an area defined by extensive magnetotelluric anomalies.“
The Copper Belle 2017 resource delineation drill program comprised 27 holes to depths below 700m (an estimated 13,722m) and step-outs of 50m where topography permitted. Results from additional drill holes of the 2017 drill program at Copper Belle are still pending. Drill holes were targeted oblique to the northwesterly plunge of the main mineralized zone. A block of delineated mineralization will form the basis for a preliminary resource estimate. All drill holes were down hole surveyed at 25m stations using a Reflex Multi-shot device.
The Company’s 2016 Magnetotelluric Geophysical Survey program (MT Survey) was effectively utilized as a guide for the drill program. The MT Survey suggests that the mineralization continues to the southwest, toward the Iron Cap deposit of Seabridge Gold Inc. The MT Survey also suggests that the mineralized zone continues in all directions. TUDOR GOLD’s 2017 drill program was located five kilometers north of the Iron Cap deposit and the Company intends to step out to the south in its 2018 program to see if it can determine a relationship between the two areas.
Drill hole samples were assayed by Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Kamloops, 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. Activation Laboratories quality system complies with the requirements for the International Standards ISO 17025: 2005.
