Tudor Gold Intersects 123.0 meters (m) of 3.51 g/t AuEQ Within 601.5 M of 1.40 g/t AuEQ in Drill Hole, GS-23-176-W1, at the Goldstorm Deposit, Treaty Creek, Northwest British Columbia

 

 

 

 

 

Tudor Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TUD) (Frankfurt: H56) is pleased to present the sixth set of drill results for the 2023 exploration program at their flagship property, Treaty Creek, located in the heart of the Golden Triangle of Northwestern British Columbia.

 

The Company has safely and successfully completed the 2023 drilling program with a total of 31,904 meters (m) drilled within areas encompassing the Goldstorm Deposit (the Deposit) and the Perfectstorm Zone. The assay results reported in this release are from three drill holes that targeted the northeastern area of the Deposit however, only two were successfully completed: GS-23-176-W1 and GS-23-177. Drill hole GS-23-176 was terminated due to unfavorable deviation and was re-drilled as wedge hole GS-23-176-W1 which did reach the intended target area. The Goldstorm Deposit remains open in all directions and at depth. Click to view plan map and cross sections.

 

Ken Konkin, President and CEO, comments: “We are very pleased to announce the continuing expansion and definition of the Goldstorm domains in the northeastern sector of the Deposit. Three of the largest mineralized domains, including 300H, CS-600 and DS5, reported excellent results from these latest drill holes. The highlight of the 2023 program is the remarkable continuation of higher grades of gold, copper and silver throughout the northern aspect of the Goldstorm Deposit. One of the best-looking mineralized areas of the Deposit to date is the lower CS-600 domain within GS-23-176-W1, which returned 273.75 m of 2.19 g/t AuEQ (1.98 g/t Au, 3.30 g/t Ag, 0.15 % Cu) that includes an enriched central core that averaged 3.51 g/t AuEQ (3.23 g/t Au, 5.57 g/t Ag, 0.19 % Cu) over 123.0 m. An interval of higher –than-average gold values was intersected near the end of GS-23-176-W1 that was associated with narrow quartz veinlets with minor disseminated pyrite; this is interpreted to be part of the DS5 domain, which may extend to greater depths than previously thought. If possible, we may extend this hole during the 2024 drill program to determine if there is a continuation to the lower 27 meters of mineralization that averaged 2.41 g/t AuEQ near the bottom of this hole.

 

The most significant aspect of GS-23-176-W1 may be the 15.0 m of 15.64 g/t AuEQ (14.89 g/t Au, 4.72 g/t Ag, 0.60 % Cu) that occurs at the core of the richest portion of the CS-600 domainThis enriched quartz stockwork in the lower part of CS-600 is a comparable-looking zone to the high-grade gold interval encountered within the CS-600 in GS-22-134, located 135 m to the west. GS-22-134 intersected 25.5 m of 9.96 g/t AuEQ (see Press Release dated July 19, 2023). This may be related to a later mineralizing event that over-prints the CS-600 copper-gold porphyry mineralization with a discrete high-grade gold-dominant quartz stockwork system. Our technical team is examining the hypothesis that we may have an independent high-grade system that cuts both 300H and CS-600 domains. Including the high-grade interval, the overall larger composite of the CS-600 domain totaling 601.5 m of 1.40 g/t AuEQ is comparable to that of GS-21-113-W2 which had a composite of 732.m of 1.60 g/t AuEQ (see Press Release dated August 11, 2022). These two intercepts could now significantly contribute to the Indicated Mineral Resource for the next Mineral Resource update, which will benefit from the increased drilling density provided by this program.

 

Equally impressive were the results from GS-23-177 where an enriched core of the 300H domain yielded 82.5 m of 1.92 g/t AuEQ within 311.5 m of 1.04 g/t AuEQ in the upper portion of that hole. Additionally, the composite for the CS-600 domain comprised yet another long intercept of 517.5 m that averaged 1.01 g/t AuEQ, which included an enriched core that averaged 1.53 g/t AuEQ (0.92 g/t Au, 5.80 g/t Ag, 0.46 % Cu) over 124.5 m. Near the lower contact of the CS-600 domain, another enriched zone was intersected that yielded 19.50 m of 5.70 g/t AuEQ (5.41 g/t Au, 1.09 g/t Ag, 0.24% Cu). The results from these two sections will add to the overall quantity of gold, silver and copper in the Indicated and Inferred categories of the next mineral resource update.”

 

Section A

  • GS-23-176: Was drilled to target deep CS-600 domain mineralization, outside the current Mineral Resource area. The hole intersected 114.10 m grading 1.01 g/t AuEQ (0.80 g/t Au, 8.10 g/t Ag, 0.10 % Cu) including 61.60 m grading 1.32 g/t AuEQ (1.01 g/t Au, 12.36 g/t Ag, 0.16 % Cu). The hole was stopped due to unfavorable deflection, and drilling was continued with a daughter wedge hole, GS-23-176-W1.
  • GS-23-176-W1: This hole successfully intersected the CS-600 domain with 601.5 m of 1.40 g/t AuEQ (1.23 g/t Au, 2.93 g/t Ag, 0.12 % Cu) which included a higher-grade interval of 273.75 m of 2.19 g/t AuEQ (1.98 g/t Au, 3.30 g/t Ag, 0.15 % Cu) that also included 123.0 m of 3.51 g/t AuEQ (3.23 g/t Au, 5.57 g/t Ag, 0.19 % Cu) and 15.0 m of 15.64 g/t AuEQ (14.89 g/t Au, 4.72 g/t Ag, 0.60 % Cu). Below the CS-600 domain, an interval of 27.0 m grading 2.41 g/t AuEQ (2.36 g/t Au, 3.91 g/t Ag, 0.01 % Cu) was intersected and is interpreted to be associated with the DS5 domain.

 

Section B

  • GS-23-177: This hole was drilled to increase the drilling density in the CS-600 domain where the current Mineral Resource Estimate is categorized as Inferred mineral resources. The hole intersected mineralization associated with the 300H domain that consisted of 311.5 m grading 1.04 g/t AuEQ (0.99 g/t Au, 4.06 g/t Ag and 0.01 % Cu) and included 82.5 m of 1.92 g/t AuEQ (1.84 g/t Au, 6.72 g/t Ag and 0.01 % Cu).

 

The CS-600 domain was intersected with 100.50 m grading 0.71 g/t AuEQ (0.54 g/t Au, 1.42 g/t Ag, 0.13 % Cu), followed by 517.5 m grading 1.01 g/t AuEQ (0.71 g/t Au, 2.35 g/t Ag, 0.23 % Cu), including an enriched core of 124.5 m grading 1.53 g/t AuEQ (0.92 g/t Au, 5.80 g/t Ag, 0.46 % Cu), and including an enriched lower zone of 19.5 m grading 5.70 g/t AuEQ (5.41 g/t Au, 1.09 g/t Ag, 0.24% Cu).

About Treaty Creek

 

The Treaty Creek Project hosts the Goldstorm Deposit, comprising a large gold-copper porphyry system, as well as several other mineralized zones. As disclosed in the  “NI-43-101 Technical Report for the Treaty Creek Project”, dated April 28, 2023 prepared by Garth Kirkham Geosystems and JDS Energy & Mining Inc., the Goldstorm Deposit has an Indicated Mineral Resource of 23.37 Moz of AuEQ grading 1.13 g/t AuEQ (18.75 Moz gold grading 0.91 g/t, 2.18 Blbs copper grading 0.15 %, 112.4 Moz silver grading 5.45 g/t) and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 7.35 Moz of AuEQ grading 0.98 g/t AuEQ (5.54 Moz gold grading 0.74 g/t, 0.85 Blb copper grading 0.16 %, 45.08 Moz silver grading 5.99 g/t), with a pit constrained cut-off of 0.5 g/t AuEQ and an underground cut-off of 0.7 g/t AuEQ. The Goldstorm Deposit has been categorized into three dominant mineral domains and several smaller mineral domains. The CS-600 Domain largely consists of an intermediate intrusive stock and hosts the majority of the copper mineralization within the Goldstorm Deposit. CS-600 has an Indicated Mineral Resource of 9.86 Moz AuEQ grading 1.10 g/t AuEQ (6.22 Moz gold grading 0.70 g/t, 1.98 Blbs copper grading 0.32 %, 51.1 Moz silver grading 5.71 g/t) and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 3.71 Moz AuEQ grading 1.19 g/t AuEQ (2.32 Moz gold grading 0.75 g/t, 0.76 Blb copper grading 0.36 %, 18.71 Moz silver grading 6.01 g/t). The Goldstorm Deposit remains open in all directions and requires further exploration drilling to determine the size and extent of the deposit.
