Tudor outlines new zone at Treaty Creek
Vancouver’s Tudor Gold Corp has outlined what it calls “Goldstorm,” a new zone at the Treaty Creek property in the Golden Triangle. Treaty Creek, in which Tudor has a 60% interest and is the operator, borders Seabridge Gold’s KSM project to the southwest and Pretium Resources’ Brucejack mine to the southeast.
Drilling northeast of the Copper Belle zone, Tudor originally thought that the zone was an extension of Copper Belle. Goldstorm was only recognized as a new occurrence after geologists went back over cores drilled in the previous three years. The characteristics, configuration and geometry are unlike Copper Belle, although the two zones may be linked genetically.
Exploration manager Ken Konkin said, “Goldstorm is a much larger system than Copper Belle, it is at least 300 metres wide and extends vertically for over 700 metres. The zone has been traced for approximately 500 meters along a northeastern azimuth. Gold mineralization appears to be continuing towards the northeast and southeast and clearly becomes stronger in the northernmost hole.”
The northernmost hole, CB18-39, returned 563.8 metres of 0.98 g/t gold. The upper part averaged 1.14 g/t gold over 280.5 metres, and the lower part averaged 1.15 g/t over 156.0 metres. The hole bottomed out in mineralization.
The exploration focus will be on both to the northeast and southeast as Tudor attempts to expand the Goldstorm zone.
