Tudor Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TUD) (FSE: TUC) is pleased to present results for the last set of diamond drill holes for the Goldstorm Zone at their flagship property, Treaty Creek. The project is located within the heart of the Golden Triangle of Northwestern British Columbia which is on-trend from Seabridge’s KSM Project located five kilometers southwest of the Goldstorm Zone. Results from sampling of 9,621.7 meters of HQ and NQ2 core, from 11 diamond drill holes, have recently been received from MSA Labs. Tudor Gold has completed 50 diamond drill holes at the Goldstorm System (GS) and three diamond drill holes at the Perfect Storm Zone, for respective totals of approximately 44,000 meters (GS) and 1,600 meters (PSZ) during the 2020 exploration season. It was necessary to abandon two of the final drill holes as ground conditions prevented the safe completion of GS-20-99 and GS-20-101 late in the season, however, significant gold and silver mineralization was encountered in GS-20-99 (0.647 gpt AuEq over 109.5 meters) and this hole ended in strong stockwork within the DS5 System. Unfortunately drill hole GS-20-101 was abandoned before intersecting the area of the intended target and this hole will be re-drilled in 2021. From the remaining 51 drill holes, all but one were successful in intersecting the intended targets.
Tudor Gold’s Vice President of Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., states: “We are very pleased with the results obtained from our 2020 exploration program and we anticipate the completion of an initial resource estimate over the next few months. We are also determined to continue the exploration efforts in 2021 to better define and potentially expand the Goldstorm and Perfect Storm Systems. It was not possible to attempt drilling at some of our high priority exploration targets due to the rapid accumulation of snow in late November and December that caused avalanche hazards, therefore, these sites remain as excellent drill targets. We have since received our explosives permit and have purchased an explosives magazine so our avalanche teams can now safely remove snow build-up for the up-coming exploration season. Our goal is to again have a late spring start-up so that we can effectively prepare the slopes to allow drilling in the northeast area of the Goldstorm System that was not completed in 2020. The Au-Ag-Cu mineralization remains open to the northeast and to the southeast, with the possible exception of section 114+00 NE, where the easternmost drill hole (GS-20-102) may have defined the southeast limit in that area.”

Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: “Our goal for Tudor Gold is to fast-track the exploration of our flagship Treaty Creek Project. We continue to advance the project on several fronts including completing our initial metallurgical work on the Goldstorm System, for which an update will be issued later this month. In addition, we recently completed the first year of an on-going water sampling program and purchased a climate station that will monitor on-site environmental conditions, providing the data required for base-line studies. Furthermore, we are preparing a winter access plan to start the 2021 exploration season as soon as the major snowfall season comes to an end in the coming spring. This approach worked extremely well for our start-up team that was able to walk-in heavy equipment on the snowpack in 2020, allowing us to start drilling much earlier than previous years. In so doing, we hit a corporate-best for drilling this past year with the completion of 53 drill holes totalling over 45,600 meters. We thank our team of men and women who worked safely and diligently during these extremely difficult conditions.”
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.
