Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 30, 2019) - Tudor Gold Corp. (TSXV: TUD) (FSE: TUC) (the "Company" or "Tudor Gold") is pleased to announce results from the first three diamond drill holes at the Goldstorm Zone on the Company's flagship Treaty Creek property, located in the Golden Triangle of Northwestern British Columbia. In light of the favourable results obtained during phase one drilling, a second drill has arrived on-site and has begun drilling for the Phase Two portion of the program.
Tudor Gold Exploration Manager, Ken Konkin explains: "The Goldstorm system continues to grow rapidly along strike to the northeast and towards the footwall contact zone to the southeast. The best near-surface intercept obtained to-date on the project has been obtained from the latest hole; GS19-42. This is a vertical hole that is a 150m step-out to the northeast from drill hole CB18-39 (0.981g/t Au over 563.8m intercept). The higher grade upper portion of last year's hole CB18-39 averaged 1.141 g/t Au over 280.5m compared to the same upper mineralized horizon of GS19-42 that averages 1.268 g/t Au over a 252.0 m intercept. The system appears to be gaining strength to the northeast as the depth is now showing to exceed 700m, with an average of 0.683 g/t Au over 780 meters of vertical intercept. The mineralized horizon appear to be near flat-lying with excellent grade consistency between holes along the upper horizon. Exploration efforts will attempt to extend the zone further to the northeast with yet another 150m NE step-out hole from GS19-42."
Drill holes GS19-40 and GS19-41, were successful in locating the footwall contact zone, which is a very fine-grained strongly silicified volcanic unit. Furthermore, porphyritic intrusive was also encountered at the base of GS19-40, and within GS19-41 that returned anomalous copper and molybdenum values. As well, a strong silver-bearing base-metal system has been seen for the first time in the northernmost hole (GS19-42), within the upper mineralized horizon. Values of 33.51 g/t Au, 1,154 g/t Ag, 2.89% Cu, 5.96% Pb and 1.89% Zn were returned over a 1.5 meter interval from 209.5 m to 211.0 m was a pleasant surprise in the last hole GS19-42.
The following table provides gold composites from the Goldstorm Zone in the first three 2019 drill holes completed:

Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: "I am delighted to see that the Goldstorm Zone has been expanded for another 150 meters with this step out drill-hole 42. I am looking forward to potentially expanding the Goldstorm zone again with another 150 meter step out drill-hole, which has started with our second drill."
Drill core samples were prepared at MSA Labs' Preparation Laboratory in Terrace, BC and assayed at MSA Labs' Geochemical Laboratory in Langley, BC. Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored by the submission of blanks, certified standards and duplicate samples inserted at regular intervals into the sample stream by Tudor Gold personnel. MSA Laboratories quality system complies with the requirements for the International Standards ISO 17025 and ISO 9001.
