Tudor Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TUD) (FSE: H56) is pleased to present the first 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.
Since the beginning of this year’s Program, the Company has successfully completed over 12,000 meters (m) of drilling, within areas encompassing the Goldstorm Deposit and the Perfectstorm Zone. The five drill holes reported in this release are located in the northeastern area of the Goldstorm Deposit. Click to view plan map and cross sections.
Ken Konkin, President and CEO, comments: “We are very pleased to report the discovery of continued strong gold, silver, and copper mineralization outside the previously defined resource area with 150-m step-out holes GS-23-164 and GS-23-167. The overall strength and consistency of the Goldstorm system continues to amaze our technical team as the deposit remains open in all directions and at depth. Our continued success of these critical first-round results has prompted us to build several more drill pads designed to test all northern aspects to all domains as there appears to be no end in-sight to the Goldstorm Au-Cu-Ag mineralization as of yet. Equally important was the success of definition hole GS-23-168 within a vast block of the 300H Domain. The goal is to increase drilling density to potentially upgrade this large block into the Indicated category from the Inferred category of the Mineral Resource. GS-23-168 intersected 309.0 m of 1.02 g/t AuEQ including an enriched portion averaging 1.40 g/t AuEQ over 204.0 m, with a core of 1.99 g/t AuEQ over 75 m. Based on these very encouraging results, we have decided to pursue the northern aspects of the Goldstorm Deposit with five drill rigs, leaving one exploration rig to further drill-test the Perfectstorm Zone.”

Diamond 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.
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.
