Tudor Gold Discovers a Significant New Gold-Silver-Copper Mineralized System at the Perfectstorm (PSZ) at Treaty Creek as well as Expands the Goldstorm Mineralization Along the Northeast Axis to 1100 meters
Drill Hole GS-20-73 Expands the 300 Horizon with a 229.5 meter Intercept Averaging 1.506 gpt AuEq Within a 775.5 meter Interval Averaging 0.932 gpt AuEq
Drill Hole GS-20-66 Expands the CS-600 System 100 metres to the Southeast with a 75 meter Intercept Averaging 2.150 gpt AuEq
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 9, 2020) - Tudor Gold Corp. (TSXV: TUD) (FSE: TUC) (the "Company" or "Tudor Gold") is pleased to announce that it has completed the third set of diamond drill holes at their flagship property, Treaty Creek located in the heart of the Golden Triangle of Northwestern British Columbia. Diamond drilling is progressing very well with six diamond drill rigs currently working on the Goldstorm Zone which is on-trend from Seabridges' KSM Project to the southwest.
Three drill holes have intersected the newly discovered gold-dominant PSZ System located approximately 2 kilometers southwest of the Goldstorm Zone. These diamond drill holes targeted a 1.5 kilometer-wide geophysical anomaly (magnetometer high). Tudor Gold has discovered this new thrust-hosted porphyry-style gold-copper-silver bearing system on trend, and approximately 4 km northeast from Seabridges' Iron Cap Deposit, which is located at the southwestern boundary of the Tudor Claim block.
Furthermore, diamond drilling on the Goldstorm System has successfully expanded the mineralization to the northeast, southwest and southeast as well to depth. The Goldstorm System 300 Horizon has now been traced for 1100 meters along the northeast axis.
Goldstorm Drilling Highlights include:
- Five diamond drill holes are reported from Goldstorm, all having hit their intended targets with favorable results listed in Table l.
- The best intercept was from drill hole GS-20-73 on Section 110+00 NE that cut 775.5 metres (29.0m to 804.5 m) averaging 0.932 gpt AuEq containing an enriched portion that averaged 1.506 gpt AuEq over 229.5 meters ( 519.5m to 749.0 m). This was a southwest offset to drill hole GS-20-57 that averaged 1.40 gpt AuEq over 217.5 meters (544.5 to 762.0 meters) within an overall composite averaging 0.845 gpt AuEq over 973.05m (34.50 to 1007.55 meters). (GS-20-57 was collared on Section 110+00 but deviated drastically to the northeast and the lower portion plotted on Section 111+00 NE leaving a gap in the drill model which GS-20-73 has now filled).
- A second longer intercept from GS-20-73 includes material that averaged 0.828 gpt AuEq from a 949.5 meter intercept (29.0 to 978.5 meters) but the hole was abandoned at 980 meters due to safety concerns with the drill platform so hole GS-20-73 WAS STOPPED IN MINERALIZATION. However, the results from entire hole composites are extremely consistent between GS-20-57 (0.845 gpt AuEq over 973.05 meters) and GS-20-73 (0.827 gpt AuEq over 949.5 meters).
- Drill hole GS-20-73 is undercut by GS-20-65; a remarkable 348 meter intercept of 2.120 gpt AuEq within a larger 930 meter intercept of 1.161 gpt AuEq (Press Release July 27th, 2020), which is currently the best intercept on the project to-date.
- Tudor expanded the CS-600 Zone 100m to the southeast on Section 109+00 NE with a 75 meter intercept averaging 2.150 gpt AuEq in hole GS-20-66.
- GS-20-67 on Section 114+00 NE deviated drastically to the north thereby extending the length of the northeast axis of the 300 Horizon to 1100 meters. This hole also ended in mineralization with the last 15 meters (1325m to 1340m) averaging 0.905 gpt AuEq within a strong quartz stockwork zone similar to the DS-5 stockwork system found at the bottom of GS-19-47 (243 meters averaging 0.996 gpt AuEq). See Section 114+00 NE attached below.
- Notable increase to silver grades occurred within GS-20-73. A 78 meter intercept (534.5m to 612.5m) had elevated silver grades averaging 26.3 gpt Ag associated with 1.588 gpt gold.
Tudor Gold's Vice President of Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., states: "We are very pleased to have intersected significant gold-copper-silver porphyry-related mineralization within a large magnetic anomaly called Perfectstorm (PSZ). This magnetic anomaly is located along a relatively evenly spaced frequency of large deposits following the Treaty-Sulphuretes Thrust Fault, approximately mid-way between the Iron Cap Deposit to the southwest and our Goldstorm System to the northeast. Results obtained from PS-20-01 and PS-20-02 on Section 89+00 NE demonstrate the consistency within these two drill holes completed off the same drill pad. PS-20-01 intersected 0.594 gpt AuEq over 133.5 meters while PS-20-02 intersected 151 meters of 0.621 gpt AuEq. The third PSZ System drill hole was a 300 meter step-out to the southwest and this hole (PS-20-03) intersected 220.5 meters of 0.402 gpt AuEq on Section 86+00 NE. The results suggest that the system is open to expansion to the southwest and to the northwest. The exploration target area is at least 1.5 kilometers long and 500-800 meters wide. We are very excited to see the results confirming that large mineralized polymetallic systems occur at a predictable frequency along the Sulphuretes-Treaty Thrust Fault belt. We are planning an aggressive diamond drill-hole program for 2021 to further expand the limits of the PSZ System's potential mineralization, searching for the center of the metal pile as we have successfully done with the Goldstorm System."

- 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 $1322/oz, Ag: $15.91/oz, Cu: $2.86/lb. Calculations used the formula Au Eq g/t = (Au g/t) + (Ag g/t x 0.012) + (Cu% x 1.4835). 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.

Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: "We are delighted to see continued success from the Treaty Creek drill program. Not only are we getting excellent results from all the drill holes completed this year, we have also discovered a new mineralized system at Perfectstorm. This demonstrates the remarkable potential that our flagship property holds. However, we must now focus all our exploration efforts on completing the drilling at Goldstorm. We intend to continue our 150 meter step-outs to the northeast on Section 115+50 NE as well as expand the drilling to the southeast and northwest along Sections 110+00 NE, 111+00 NE, 112+50 NE and 114+00 NE. The Goldstorm System remains open in all directions and at depth."
