HARTE GOLD CORP. (“Harte Gold” or the “Company”) (TSX: HRT / OTC: HRTFF / Frankfurt: H4O) is pleased to announce grid power to site, the mill has been energized, the Company has started processing ore from its surface stockpile and ore sill development has resumed underground.  Commissioning of the mill complex and surface infrastructure is going very well and will be substantially complete within the next week.

Stephen G. Roman, President and CEO of Harte Gold, commented, “This is a significant accomplishment and successful conclusion to an accelerated timeline that saw construction started 14 months ago and completed with no lost time accidents.  The Company is very excited to announce to shareholders they can now look forward to the first gold pour within the next two weeks.”

Exploration Update

To-date, Harte Gold has completed 90,400 metres of drilling in its 2018 drill program.  Key intersections are summarized below:

  • Underground drilling has returned additional high grade intersections at the Upper Zone area of the Sugar Zone.  Hole S095-18-005 returned 37.38 g/t over 1.97 metres, which will improve modelled grade and provides a near-surface block of high grade mineralization for initial mine production.
  • Sugar Zone Inferred to Indicated drilling continues to return high grade intersections that are expected to improve overall modelled grade.  Hole SZ-18-254 returned 30.95 g/t over 1.32 metres.
  • Middle Zone Inferred to Indicated drilling continues to show positive widths and grades.  Hole WZ-18-202W returned 35.59 g/t over 2.58 metres.
  • Wolf Zone drilling has expanded the mineralized envelope further down dip.  Hole WZ-18-179W5 returned 5.12 g/t over 2.25 metres and hole WZ-18-175 returned 5.64 g/t over 10.60 metres, including 63.90 g/t over 0.70 metres.  The Company is targeting an Initial Inferred Resources estimate at the Wolf Zone for its next Mineral Resource Estimate update in Q1 2019.
  • Drill permits have been received for the Eagle and Highway zones.  The Company has mobilized a drill rig to further test both zones.  Results will be provided as they become available.

Drill results are summarized in the following tables:
