The Tudor Project is located 350 km northeast of Toronto, Ontario, and consists of 21 claim blocks with a total of 55 claim units covering an approximate area of 1,150 hectares. The Tudor Property is situated at the intersection of the north trending Moira River Fault Zone and the northeast trending Gilmour Shear Zone. The faults consist of a series of anastomising (braided) carbonate-deformation zones. Together the two structures strike over 22 km and each has acted as a conduit for Archean-type hydrothermal gold deposits.
The Tudor Property has an extensive history of exploration activities. You can read more about the chronological sequence of exploration events on the property here (Ontario Geological Survey (OGS) Open File Report 6238). The report was been prepared by the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines in 2009 when the property was at the time optioned to Opasatika Mining Corporation.
The Tudor Gold Project hosts three gold prospects: Main Zone, Vardy-Homestake Zone and Homestake South Prospect. Most exploration work has been focused on the Main Zone.
Exploration activities have been limited in the other zones, however, reconnaissance surveys have found gold in the limited rock exposures but continuity and quantities have not been defined. The Vardy Zone has been targeted as a second area of exploration as the presence of a second gold bearing system which has been traced for over 400 metres.
2011 Drill Program
Union Glory Gold Limited retained ROMA Oil and Mining Associates Limited in 2011 to carry out a ten hole drill program to test the mineralization at the 100 metre level. All drill holes cut across the favourable delsic volcanic mineralizated rocks and contained gold mineralization.
The optioners have expressed their confidence that the continued development of the Tudor Gold Property will lead to an attractive economic outcome in light of their 30 years of ground experience with the property.
Future Exploration Activities
Union Glory Gold Limited is now in the process of consulting with its external geologist, and will be finalizing the next stage of exploration work for 2014.
The Ontario Ministry of Mines and Northern Development has granted and approved an an exploration permit to Union Glory Gold Limited for the property. The permit provides Union Glory Gold Limited with Ontario Government approval to continue the next stage of exploration work.
