American Creek Resources Ltd. said Aug. 9 that joint venture partner Tudor Gold Corp. discovered a new gold zone at the Treaty Creek gold project in British Columbia.
Tudor intersected stratabound mineralization in one drillhole, with highlights including 7.15 meters at 6.20 g/t of gold from 247.3 meters and 5.1 meters at 9.57 g/t of gold from 249.35 meters. The drillhole was designed to test for northern extensions of the GR2 zone mineralization encountered in previous drilling.
Five additional drillholes have been completed on this target and assays are pending.
Drilling is proceeding with a second drill on the nearby Copper Belle zone, while a third drill is being mobilized.
According to Tudor, the exploration program at Treaty Creek aims to develop a primary resource estimate on Copper Belle and determine how much further drilling is needed to develop a preliminary resource estimate on the GR2 zone.
Tudor owns a 60% interest in Treaty Creek and serves as its operator, while American Creek and Teuton Resources Corp. each hold a 20% carried interest.
