Harte Gold Reports Positive Drill Results from Sugar Zone Property

Apr 26, 2017 @ 09:50

Harte Gold is pleased to announce continued positive drilling at both the Sugar Zone and Middle Zone on the Company’s 100% owned Sugar Zone Property, White River Ontario.

Six drill rigs are currently active. Three rigs continue to do infill drilling on the Sugar Zone in the area targeted for the next phase of mining as well as step-out drilling to expand the resource.

At the Middle Zone, two rigs are currently active doing step-out drilling to expand the mineralized envelope and infill drilling to bring the Middle Zone into the resource category. Middle Zone drilling has also defined where the mineralization ends, currently about 150 meters from surface, as well as the defining contact with the “Gabbro Intrusion” (A Gabbro is a late stage volcanic intrusion that in the case of the Sugar Zone was injected into the mineralized formation that carries the gold) on the north side. The dimension of the zone is now 400 meters on strike and 700 meters down dip. The zone remains open down dip and on strike to the south. Drilling towards the Sugar Zone and at depth is indicating the two deposits may converge at depth into a larger system.

In addition, a sixth drill rig has now started drilling further north at the Wolf Zone. Results from this program will be announced once sufficient drilling has been done to accurately confirm continuity of the mineralization.

Highlights of the drilling are as follows:
