VANCOUVER, BC, November 23, 2021 - Tudor Gold Corp. (TSXV: TUD) (Frankfurt: TUC) (the "Company" or "Tudor Gold" - https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/tudor-gold-corp/) is pleased to present the results for the first two drill holes completed on its new discovery at CBS, formerly known as the NEAA Zone, at their flagship property, Treaty Creek (the “Project”), located within the Golden Triangle of Northwest British Columbia.
The Company has concluded the safe completion of the 2021 Exploration Program, which included a total of 30,108 meters of drilling. Results from the final eleven drill holes from Goldstorm, one hole at CBS, and several surface chip sample lines from the Eureka Zone are expected to be received shortly and will be released once final analysis and interpretation is completed.
Calm Before the Storm Results
CBS is the fourth significant precious metal mineralized zone to be discovered at the Treaty Creek Project. The CBS Zone is located two kilometers northeast of the Goldstorm Deposit and occurs on the same structural trend that hosts the Perfect Storm Zone (PSZ) and the Copper Belle-Goldstorm Deposit (CB-GS), which currently hosts an estimated Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource of 19.4 million ounces of AuEq grading 0.74 AuEq and an Inferred Resource of 7.9 million ounces of AuEq grading 0.79 AuEq (see Tudor Gold press release dated March 9, 2021).
Treaty Creek, CBS Zone Drilling and Surface Sampling Highlights include:
- Identified a new mineralized zone, “Calm Before the Storm”, near the lower Treaty Camp; 15% (25 out of 170) of rock chip samples assayed >0.5 g/t AuEq and 5% (8 out of 170) of samples contained >1.0 g/t AuEq.
- Drill results at Calm Before the Storm from the deeper hole, CBS-21-02, which returned 1.30 g/t AuEq over 53.9m within 155.50m of 0.82 g/t AuEq, demonstrate that gold-silver mineralization is getting stronger at depth.
- Our Upper and Lower Exploration camps were closed in early November, but on-going environmental and climatic studies will continue throughout the year with helicopter support provided by Yellowhead Helicopters based in Stewart, B.C.
Tudor Gold’s Vice President of Exploration and Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., states: “Our 2021 exploration program has been exceptionally successful at broadening our understanding of the mineralization throughout the Treaty Creek Property. The Project now has four large geological targets that require extensive exploration and drilling, including the Goldstorm Deposit which remains open in all directions and at depth. The size and scope of our exploration program is growing exponentially with each new discovery to add to the chain of precious and base-metal deposits and targets associated with the extensive Sulphurets-Treaty thrust fault system. We are very pleased with the results of the surface sampling programs and in-particular the discovery hole from our preliminary drill results at our new zone, Calm Before the Storm (CBS). The gold and silver values at CBS are interpreted to be hosted within possibly younger rocks than the host lithologies at Goldstorm. Drill hole CBS-21-02 intersected a distinct mineralized zone with 1.30 g/t AuEq over 53.9m within 155.50m of 0.82 g/t AuEq. Our geological crews require further review of this core after compiling the assay results to determine the controls for gold and silver distribution and emplacement.”
The complete list of composited drill hole results for CBS, as well as the drill hole data, including hole location, elevation, depth, dip and azimuth, are provided in Table 1 and Table 2, respectively. A list of highlighted surface chip and channel samples from CBS are included in Table 3.

· All assay values are uncut and intervals reflect drilled intercept lengths.
· HQ and NQ2 diameter core samples were sawn in half and typically sampled at standard 1.5m intervals
· The following metal prices were used to calculate the Au Eq metal content: Gold $1625/oz, Ag: $19/oz, Cu: $2.8/lb. Calculations used the formula Au Eq g/t = (Au g/t) + (Ag g/t x 0.01169) + (Cu% x 1.1815). All metals are reported in USD and calculations do not consider metal recoveries.
· True widths have not been determined as the mineralized body remains open in all directions. Further drilling is required to determine the mineralized body orientation and true widths.
