Drill results comprise core intersection lengths (true width unknown), assay results are un-cut.

The in-fill drill program was designed to establish 25 meter spacing between drill holes and confirm the continuity of gold mineralization in the JB Zone, which is the initial target area scheduled for mining under Harte Gold's Advanced Exploration and Bulk Sampling program, scheduled to begin June 2015.

"We are very pleased with the continuity of structure on the JB Zone," commented Stephen G. Roman, President and CEO of Harte Gold. "The amount of drilling completed in this area of the Sugar Zone Deposit assures us of a successful bulk sampling program which will lead to further development of the Sugar Zone Mine," stated Mr. Roman.

Exploration Drilling

Harte Gold has resumed exploration drilling on the Sugar Zone Property and completed seven holes of an eight hole program focused on the area of high grade grab samples taken from bedrock during the summer 2014 exploration program. The current drill program will test other targets including the Zoe Zone, which also returned high grade surface samples from bedrock and, the Contact Zone identified by the 2014 IP/Mag surveys (please see News Release dated November 12, 2014).

QA / QC Statement

Drill core was logged in Harte Gold's secure core facility in White River, Ontario. Samples were hand delivered to the AGAT preparation lab in Thunder Bay where they were crushed and pulverized and sent to the Mississauga lab for analysis. Samples were fire assayed using a 30 gram representative sample and finished with ICP analysis. Additional ICP analysis was done for pathfinder elements. For quality control and quality assurance a standard sample was inserted every 20 samples during the program and a blank sample was also inserted every 20 samples, however, within the mineralization a blank was also inserted after every sample. Samples exceeding 1 gram / tonne Au were re-assayed, in cases where visible gold is abundant, metallic screen analysis is used. R.S. Middleton P.Eng. supervised the recent drill program and oversaw all logging, splitting and assay procedures for the project. Mr. Middleton is acting as the Qualified Person for Harte Gold Corp. in regards to this project and has approved the scientific and/or technical disclosure in the news release.
