Tudor Gold has released assay results for 12 drillholes, totalling 11,551 metres, completed at its 60%-owned Treaty Creek project in the Golden Triangle in northwest B.C.
All of the most recent intercepts were successful at hitting the Goldstorm system and have expanded mineralization along its northeast and southeast axes, as well as at depth. As a result, the Goldstorm system has now been traced over 1,100 metres along the northeast axis and the CS-600 and DS-5 zones have grown both to the northeast and at depth.
The drill highlights include 354 metres of 1.12 g/t gold, 4.14 g/t silver and 0.03% copper (1.22% gold-equivalent) from 36 metres, within a 1,225-metre interval of 0.7 g/t gold-equivalent; and 351 metres of 0.97 g/t gold, 3.56 g/t silver and 0.03% copper (1.05 g/t gold-equivalent) starting at 113 metres, within a 928.5-metre interval of 0.74 g/t gold-equivalent.
In the press release, Ken Konkin, Tudor’s VP of project development, noted how drilling continues to expand the targets at Treaty Creek.
“These latest holes continued to expand the limits of the mineralized targets along the northeastern and the southeastern axes, and to depth. For a fifth consecutive press release, we have surpassed our best result from last years’ drill hole program…”
With results of 39 holes reported to date, the company is awaiting the results for the final 11 drillholes completed at the site this year – these are expected in the coming weeks.
President and CEO Walter Storm added that this year’s results will be used to derive an initial resource for the property.
“Once we receive the final results from the last eleven drill holes, we will then pass the data to our resource engineers and geoscientists for an initial resource estimate. Continued drilling is required for 2021 to locate the limits or edges of the mineralized system. Due to the size and robust nature of the mineralization, the Goldstorm System remains open on all fronts and to depth.”
Tudor Gold has a 60% interest in Treaty Creek; American Creek Resources and Teuton Resources each hold a 20% interest.
The 179-sq.-km property borders Seabridge Gold’s KSM project to the southwest and Pretium Resources’ Brucejack property to the southeast.
