Tudor Gold Infill Drilling Confirms Excellent Continuity of Mineral Domains, with a Near-Surface Intercept of 1.09 g/t Gold Eq over 476.1 m (GS-21-124 300H) and 1.22 g/t Gold Eq over 355.15 m (GS-21-122 CS600) Including 1.45 g/t Gold Eq over 247.5 m
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - December 15, 2021) - Tudor Gold Corp. (TSXV: TUD) (FSE: TUC) (the "Company" or "Tudor Gold") is pleased to present the most recent drill results from the 30,108 meter, 2021 resource expansion and definition drilling program for the Goldstorm Deposit at their flagship property, Treaty Creek (the "Project"), located within the Golden Triangle of Northwest British Columbia.
Included in this press release are the results of four diamond drill holes that were completed at the Goldstorm Deposit along two sections (112+00 NE and 115+00 NE), 300 metres apart. These results demonstrate the excellent continuity of precious and base-metal mineralization that has been measured throughout the Goldstorm deposit and provides increased drill hole density for future resource determinations. The Copper Belle-Goldstorm Deposit (CB-GS) currently hosts a 1*NI 43-101 compliant Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource of 19.4 million ounces of AuEq grading 0.74 g/t AuEq and an Inferred Resource of 7.9 million ounces of AuEq grading 0.79 g/t AuEq (see Tudor Gold press release dated March 9, 2021).
Goldstorm Drilling Highlights Include:
SECTION 115+00 NE
- GS-21-122 provided closer hole spacing between previous intercepts of the deep, northwest extension of the CS600 domain. The hole averaged 0.65 g/t AuEq over 1,035.0 m, which included both the 300H and CS600 domains.
- GS-21-122 encountered consistent gold and copper mineralization within the CS600 domain that returned 1.22 g/t AuEq (0.65 g/t Au and 0.45 % Cu) over 355.15 m, including an enriched portion that averaged 1.45 g/t AuEq (0.79 g/t Au and 0.53 % Cu) over 247.5 m.
- GS-21-122 ended at 1375 m in gold mineralization, which may have been the start of the DS5 domain. The drill had reached its' maximum depth capacity.
- GS-21-126, stepping out to the southeast, was stopped before the target due to drilling issues. This hole will be re-drilled in 2022.
SECTION 112+00 NE
- GS-21-123 was designed to provide infill resource definition for the center of the CS600 domain. Unfortunately, this hole was not completed to the target depth and ended in mineralization. A portion of the CS600 domain was intersected, which averaged 1.22 g/t AuEq (0.61 g/t Au and 0.45 % Cu) over 38.8 m at the end of the hole.
- The upper portion of GS-21-123 intersected consistent gold mineralization within the 300H domain with 0.90 g/t AuEq over 201.0 m that contained an enriched zone that graded 1.31 g/t AuEq over 49.9 m near the center of 300H domain.
- GS-21-124 cut an intercept of the 300H domain that infilled and defined the deposit to the northwest just beneath the TTF1 thrust fault. This hole averaged 0.75 g/t AuEq over 1,089.0 m.
- A Near-surface, enriched section of 300H was encountered in GS-21-124, grading 1.50 g/t AuEq over 126.0 m, within a 476.1 m interval that averaged 1.09 g/t AuEq.
Tudor Gold's Vice President of Exploration and Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., states: "We are pleased to report that the resource definition-drilling of the Goldstorm Deposit was a great success. In addition to expanding the limits of the precious and base-metal mineralization to the northwest, north and northeast, we were able to infill gaps in the resource model with carefully placed drill holes that were designed to add gold-equivalent ounces to the measured and drill indicated categories. In addition, these results demonstrate the strong consistency of the gold-copper mineralization between holes GS-21-122 and GS-21-124 that are approximately 500 meters apart; the overall results are very comparable: GS-21-122 averaged 0.65 g/t AuEq over 1,035 meters while GS-21-124 averaged 0.75 g/t AuEq over 1,089 meters. We expect to complete the final sections for the last four drill holes and combine this with our final surface sampling results for our next press release."

|Section||Hole||From (m)||To (m)||Interval (m)||Au (g/t)||Ag (g/t)||Cu (ppm)||AuEQ (g/t)|
|And including (CS600)||872.85||1228.00||355.15||0.65||3.69||4453||1.22|
(1) Hole ended prior to reaching target mineralization; no significant values (NSV).
(2) Hole ended in mineralization, shut down before reaching target depth due weather conditions.
(3) Hole ended in mineralization, shut down due to drilling issues.
- 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.
