Tudor to drill 14,000 metres at Treaty Creek gold project
Tudor Gold (TSXV: TUD) made public this week the 2019 exploration plans for its flagship Treaty Creek project, located in the Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia.
In a press release, the Vancouver-based miner said the primary exploration target within Treaty Creek is the Goldstorm system.
“From the southwest corner of the Treaty Creek claims, which are bordering Seabridge’s claims, the sulphurets thrust fault leads from Seabridge’s iron cap deposit to the Tudor Gold Goldstorm system. This regional thrust fault sharply defines the hanging wall contact of both the Iron Cap Deposit and the Goldstorm zone. The Goldstorm zone is located five kilometers northeast of Seabridges’ Iron Cap Deposit,” Tudor’s statement reads.
According to the company, the Goldstorm mineralized body can be traced for at least 500 meters along strike. “The gold mineralization appears to be confined to the northwest by what appears to be the Sulphurets Thrust Fault, however gold mineralization remains open in all other directions and is open to depth as well,” the brief states.
In the same document, Ken Konkin, Tudor Gold’s exploration manager, gave details of the exploration campaign and wrote that, if there are enough funds, the plan is to diamond-drill 20 holes totaling 14,000 metres of drilling.
Treaty Creek is a 17,913-hectare project that borders Seabridge Gold’s KSM property to the southwest and Pretium Resources’ Brucejack property to the southeast. The past-producing Eskay Creek mine lies 12 kilometres to the west.
Tudor has a 60%-interest in the project while American Creek Resources (TSXV-AMK) and Teuton Resources (TSXV-TUO) each hold a 20% interest carried through to a production decision.
