Drilling Continues to Impress

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – March 16, 2017) – HARTE GOLD CORP. (“Harte Gold”) (TSX:HRT)(OTC:HRTFF)(FRANKFURT:H4O) Harte Gold is pleased to announce that diamond drilling on its 100% owned Sugar Zone Property located in White River Ontario, continues to generate positive results.

Two drill rigs are currently working on the Sugar Zone Deposit with an infill and step out drill program. The intention is to both, move the lower portion of the orebody from the Inferred Category to the Indicated Category requiring a drill hole spacing between 25 and 50 meters, and extend the orebody down dip to increase the resource at depth.

In the newly discovered Middle Zone, two drills are currently turning. Drilling has been on wide, 100 meter step outs with the intention of expanding the mineralized envelope and locating the interface between the mineralized envelope and the gabbro intrusion on the north edge of the Middle Zone.

Harte geologists expect the mineralized system continues north of the gabbro and may connect with the Wolf Zone. Please click the link to see Long Section below.
