Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 25, 2021) - Tudor Gold Corp. (TSXV: TUD) (FSE: TUC) (the "Company" or "Tudor Gold") is pleased to announce the commencement of the 2021 exploration program at their flagship property, Treaty Creek, located in the heart of the Golden Triangle of Northwestern British Columbia. Diamond drilling has begun on the Goldstorm Deposit, which is on-trend from Seabridge Gold's KSM Project located five kilometers to the southwest. The first two drills have arrived and have begun drilling the 30,000 meter, fully funded, Phase l exploration program. Six drills will be used for this deposit delineation and property exploration program.
Tudor Gold's Vice President of Exploration and Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., states: "Crews have been on site for several weeks preparing our drill camp and our lower exploration camp to receive our first two drill teams. This season had a remarkably deep snowpack compared to that of previous years. Our crews took advantage of the high snow level and excellent weather conditions during April and May to transport heavy equipment and drilling supplies to our site utilizing the South Treaty Glacier route. Avalanche technicians safely guided the convoy of equipment over the pass that connects to the Pretium Resources' Knipple Glacier ice road.
"The priority of our exploration program this year is to define the limits of the Goldstorm Deposit, as it currently remains open to expansion in all directions and at depth. Furthermore, we will attempt to convert as much of the 7.9 million ounces of gold equivalent (AuEq) Inferred Resources to the Measured and Indicated Resource categories that currently total 19.41 million ounces of AuEq. In addition to drilling at Goldstorm (GS), we will also continue our drilling at Perfect Storm (PSZ) and other targets, including the Eureka Zone (EZ). Approximately 90% of the planned drilling will be undertaken at Goldstorm while two 300-meter southwestern step-out holes are initially planned for Perfect Storm, and one hole at Eureka. We expect to add two more drills in the following week."
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 workers 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 workers of all Tudor personnel and all service providers.
Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: "We are all very pleased to see the safe start-up of the 2021 exploration program thanks to the hard work and dedication of our crews. I would also like to thank our good neighbours along our southern boundary; we very much appreciate the management and staff at Pretium Resources for their assistance and permission to transport vital heavy equipment and drill supplies to our site from their Brucejack Mine access road. Last year we completed our most successful exploration season at Treaty Creek, which provided the results for our Initial Mineral Resource Estimate. Our goal this year is to complete the drilling of the Goldstorm Deposit to hopefully expand and finalize the Mineral Resource Estimate. With this, we can then proceed with a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) for 2022. We also have several high-level targets to explore at Treaty Creek, with the goal of identifying the nature and grade of gold distribution within the Perfect Storm and Eureka targets."
