HARTE GOLD CORP. ("Harte Gold") Harte Gold is pleased to announce a significant new discovery in the 2.3 x 1.5 km area between the Sugar Zone Deposit and the Wolf Zone discovery. This area was covered by a 3D Induced Polarization/Resistivity Survey completed in the spring and summer of 2016 (see press release - June 28, 2016).
- The discovery lies within a 28 meter envelope of anomalous gold between 150-450 meters vertical depth and includes four mineralized sections.
- Sections 2 and 3 measure 10 and 12 meters respectively and include gold grades up to 60 g/t
- Significant widths and grades include:
The initial discovery drill hole, SZ-16-107, intersected a narrow zone measuring 0.25 meters thick and grading
2.47 g/t. Harte Gold followed up with a second hole, WZ-16-37, located 100 meters farther down dip which intersected 1.05 meters grading 14.84 g/t and drilled a third hole, WZ-16-42, an additional 100 meters down dip, which intersected the wide mineralized envelope that includes the four (4) zones listed above. The mineralization is characterized by quartz veining, fuchsite and tourmaline not seen previously in the Sugar Zone deposit. Drilling continues on this discovery to further define its size potential. Please see attached Drill Section which includes WZ-16-37 and WZ-16-42.
"This is an exciting new discovery on the Sugar Zone Property which validates the use of geophysics to find targets and also the incredible potential to find additional ounces on this property" said Stephen G. Roman, Harte Gold's President & CEO. "As found elsewhere in the Hemlo area gold mines, as you drill deeper, it gets better!" said Mr. Roman.
Sugar Zone south extension drilling continues to go well with all drill holes to date intersecting both the upper and lower zones of the Sugar Zone Deposit. This area is expected to contribute to an increase in gold resources for the Sugar Zone Deposit.
Further exploration drilling north of the Wolf Zone, on another geophysical (IP) target, has encountered anomalous gold zones which include sericite schist, fuchsite, tourmaline, pyrite and pyrrhotite. This mineralization is similar to Hemlo style mineralization. Two deeper drill holes have recently been completed on this prospective area and assays are pending.
