10,000 Metre Drill Program

Drilling to complete Harte's 10,000 metre program will consist of approximately 4,000 metres and will start up within two weeks. In addition to in-fill drilling between surface and 300 metres, other areas to be tested include:

  • the mineralized envelope below 300 meters to expand resources down dip
  • Exploration drilling to extend the current 800 meter strike length of the Sugar Zone deposit and,
  • Testing IP/Mag survey targets in the area (1.7 km) between the Wolf Zone and Sugar Zone deposits.

On completion of the drill program, data from the program will be used to update the current NI 43-101 report. This report will also be used to prepare a block model to assist in mine planning and preliminary work associated with the feasibility study on the Sugar Zone deposit.

Gossan Zone

The Gossan is an area of sulphides and is interpreted to be the surface expression of the 18 km western limb of the mineralized structure and will be tested over the course of summer exploration programs with drilling to follow.

Fold Nose Structure

The Fold Nose is located at the junction of the 18 km eastern and western limbs of the mineralized structure. Harte has completed a large line cutting program (65 line kilometres) over the Fold Nose area located north-west of the Wolf Zone. An IP/ Mag survey is scheduled to be completed over the Fold Nose in June.

Toronto Stock Exchange Listing Application

Harte also announced it has received conditional listing approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TMX"). Harte's common shares are expected to begin trading on the TMX within two weeks.

QA / QC Statement

Diamond drill holes were drilled with NQ sized core in order to obtain larger sample volumes of the mineralized zones. The core was sealed and delivered by the drilling contractor to Harte's facilities located in White River, Ontario. The mineralized sections of the cores were photographed for reference, logged and mineralized sections were sawn in half. Sample lengths were 0.5 meters. Half core samples were bagged, sealed and delivered to Activation Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario, an accredited laboratory. The remaining core is stored on site for reference. Samples were assayed by the fire assay method using an atomic absorption finish on a 50 gram pulp split. A quality assurance and quality control program (QA/QC) was implemented by Harte and the laboratory to ensure the precision and reproducibility of the analytical method and results. The QA/QC program includes the insertion of standards, blanks and field duplicates in the sample batches sent to the laboratory and a systematic re-assaying of samples returning values above 3 g/t Au by the fire assay method using a gravimetric finish.

The drill program is being conducted under the supervision of George A. Flach, P. Geo, Vice President of Exploration for Harte. Mr. Flach is the Qualified Person (QP) as defined in National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed the technical information contained herein.
