Harte Gold Provides Regional Exploration Update

23.07.2021  |  CNW

Announces New Mineralized Discovery 8.5 km from Sugar Zone Mine

TORONTO, July 22, 2021 - Harte Gold Corp. ("Harte Gold" or the "Company") (TSX: HRT) (OTC: HRTFF) (Frankfurt: H4O) is pleased to provide the following update on its regional exploration program for 2021.

Highlights:

  • A new greenfield mineralized area has been discovered around the Hambleton area, named the "007 Showing", situated 8.5 km northwest of the Sugar Zone Mine.
  • The discovery of the 007 Showing was a result of the Company's ongoing systematic process to concentrate exploration efforts on priority areas across the highly prospective 81,287 hectare land package.
  • Channel sampling at the 007 Showing is underway, initial results have returned anomalous gold values of up to 4.4 g/t Au. Further assays are pending.
  • At the TT8 Zone, further drilling has expanded mineralization from the previously defined 600 metre strike length to over 3,000 metres, extending mineralization to the south towards the Big Bear showing.
  • Selected assays from recent drilling at the TT8 Zone include:
    • Hole TT8-21-34: 13.6 g/t Au over 0.61 metres
    • Hole TT8-21-37: 70.9 g/t Au over 0.36 metres
    • Hole TT8-21-38: 135.0 g/t Au over 0.33 metres
  • An integrated 3D geological model to generate and advance regional targets has now been developed.
  • The geological model includes all property-wide geochemical, structural, lithological and geophysical data for the Sugar Zone property.

David Schonfeldt, VP Exploration commented:

"Our regional exploration program continues to reinforce the tremendous potential of the Sugar Zone property. The recent discovery of the 007 Showing is a promising new area of mineralization that will be followed up with further prospecting. Separately, the extension of the TT8 Zone along the fully permitted Kabinakagami (Kabi) greenstone belt continues to return promising grades at shallow depths. We are excited with what the potential TT8 could deliver as exploration continues to the south, where we see steepening lithologies with the potential for larger zones of mineralization.

Having implemented a new systematic approach to regional exploration, data collection and analysis, adding further rigour to our regional exploration process, we expect this to result in higher quality target generation and greater efficiencies as our exploration programs advance the targets into well defined mineralized zones."

New Mineralized Discovery in the Hambleton Area - 007 Showing:

Location

Harte Gold's regional prospecting program has resulted in a discovery that the Company has named the 007 Showing (Figure 1), situated approximately 8.5 km northwest of the Sugar Zone mine in the Hambleton area. The discovery consists of a seven-metre-wide zone of strong deformation situated on the Dayohessarah Greenstone Belt with mineralized felsic and mafic volcanics, intruded by mineralized felsic dykes and abundant quartz veining.

A channel sample program has commenced, which has resulted in a few preliminary results including anomalous gold values ranging up to 4.4 g/t Au. The Company will immediately conduct a more comprehensive review of the area, including enhanced prospecting, stripping, and detailed structural mapping.

007 Area Structure and Lithology

Meticulous logging of the channel samples highlights a highly strained and mineralized mafic volcanic unit intruded by numerous quartz veins with pyrite, chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite. Assays are pending for these channel samples.

Prospecting by Harte Gold geologists along strike of this location has continued to uncover zones of abundant quartz veining, with sulphides in areas of high strain. Harte Gold continues to evaluate these potential locations with chip and channel sampling as well as detailed mapping.

In addition to this effort, a ground-based IP survey is planned to delineate subsurface chargeability and resistivity anomalies associated with mineralization. A detailed ground magnetics survey is also being considered to aid in the delineation of structural trends.

TT8 Exploration Update:

Update on Drilling

The summer drill program at the TT8 Zone, which commenced on March 26, 2021, has now completed 36 holes for a total of 4,500 metres drilled. The areas currently being drilled are a follow-up to the five high-grade surface showings discovered in 2020 and a continuation of drilling successes in that year.

A summary of drilling completed after April 30, 2021 can be found in Table 1 (see press release dated April 29, 2021 for further historical assays).

TT8 Structure and Potential

Detailed mapping and channel sampling currently underway at the TT8 Zone is expected to significantly improve the Company's understanding of the potential down plunge high-grade shoot as a control on the thickened high grade hinge zones within the overturned folded sequence. Understanding the mineralizing controls will help Harte Gold geologists confidently target thickened and overturned areas along the Kabi greenstone belt.

Figure 3 illustrates the size of the TT8 vein along a selected 100-metre section, where the initial TT8 showing was discovered. The channel samples illustrated include the initial seven "discovery" samples (at the top, ie. north, of Figure 3). A subsequent Q2 2021, eight channel samples (towards the bottom, ie. south, of Figure 3) were completed after stripping and detailed mapping expanded the showing by an additional 75 meters. Channel sampling has continued to the north towards Long Shot and to the south towards the Big Bear showing.

The structural nature of the currently exposed TT8 vein has made it somewhat challenging to target wide intercepts, however due to the high-grade intersections and the increased structural knowledge, Harte Gold will proceed with a systematic drill program as financial liquidity issues are managed through the completion of the Company's strategic review process.

Other Regional Exploration Activities:

Harte Gold continues to advance its other regional exploration targets through an organized methodical approach across the Sugar Zone property, including the following:

  • Continuing IP/Mag survey along the now 18 km mineralized portion of the Kabi greenstone belt extension.
  • Ongoing prospecting in various areas such as Flat Lake, Hambleton, and several targets within the Kabi greenstone belt.
  • Analyzing a property-wide LIDAR survey recently completed.
  • Completing a now fully integrated Leapfrog 3D geological model, recently developed by SGS, incorporating all property-wide geochemical, structural, lithological, and geophysical data for the property.
  • Prospecting of the most inaccessible northern potions of the property.

Planned Exploration for Remainder of 2021:

In light of the Company's ongoing strategic review process, which includes the need for managing financial liquidity in the short-term, all higher spend activities such as exploration drilling have been temporarily suspended, with the intention to resume later this year after the completion of the strategic review process. All other exploration activities, including summer prospecting, surface sampling, data compilation and analyses, and geophysical surveying will continue at an accelerated pace.
