Tudor Gold Inc. (TUD:TSX.V) announced in a news release that the drill bit encountered the largest interval of gold mineralization to date at its flagship Treaty Creek property in British Columbia's Golden Triangle.
The specific intercept was 1,081.5 meters (1,081.5m) of gold averaging 0.589 grams per ton (0.589 g/t), including an upper interval of 301m containing 0.828 g/t gold. This result came from hole GS19-47, which Tudor drilled as a 150m stepout to previously reported hole GS19-42.
GS19-47 was drilled vertically to a total depth of 1,199m. It ended in mineralization averaging 0.930 g/t gold over 207m. "This is the first time we've seen this strength of gold mineralization at depth," Tudor Exploration Manager Ken Konkin said in the release.
This mineralized intercept extends the Goldstorm zone by 300m to the northeast. To date, Tudor has traced the zone along strike for more than 800m.
A second deep vertical hole, GS19-48, drilled to a total depth of 1,035m, returned 0.725 g/t gold over 838.5m, including a near-surface interval of 328.5m averaging 1.048 g/t gold.
Both deep diamond drill holes encountered a strong copper association with gold values at depth. GS19-27 intercepted a 151.5m zone of 0.22% copper with 0.572 g/t gold from 665–816.5m. GS18-49 encountered a 66m zone of 0.35% copper with 0.958 g/t gold from 874.5–940.5m.
"Not only does the Goldstorm zone remain open at depth and along strike, we are now seeing base metal associations possibly as part of a zonation within the metal system," Konkin added.
Tudor also announced in the release that four footwall definition holes drilled on section 109+00 NE "all extended the width of the mineralized zone to the southeast into the footwall of the controlling fault structure."
Several more drill holes will be needed to find the length and depth of this "huge" Goldstorm system, said Konkin.[NLINSERT]
