New Gold Discovery on Sugar Zone Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2010) - HARTE GOLD CORP. ("Harte") (TSX VENTURE:HRT)(FRANKFURT:H4O) is pleased to announce a new disseminated sulphide hosted gold discovery located 1.7 km north-west of the Sugar Zone.

This discovery is highly significant for a number of reasons:

  • Gold mineralization is hosted in disseminated sulphides

  • Assay results from initial grab samples returned 6.53 g/t and 5.97 g/t

  • Disseminated sulphide hosted gold mineralization is often associated with large gold deposits such as Hemlo, 60 km west of the Sugar Zone property.

  • The discovery was made by excavating a new IP anomaly. The Phase 2 IP map is attached (to view the map, click here: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/HRT_map.pdf) and shows significant extensions to the Phase 1 survey area and numerous new anomalies.

  • Phase 2 IP outlines massive anomaly west of Peacock Showing.

The length and width of the new discovery area will be determined following further clearing, channel sampling and drilling.

The above referenced grab samples were taken from a newly discovered IP anomaly. Overburden was cleared with an excavator to expose fresh bedrock which was sampled by Mr. George A. Flach, P.Geo VP Exploration of Harte. This mineralization may not be representative of future drill results.

The Company plans to excavate many additional IP anomalies before winter, which will then be followed up with diamond drilling. Construction work to upgrade the existing road to the site is now underway.

Drilling on this new discovery is expected to begin next month. This will be done concurrently with Sugar Zone definition and extension drilling for the Feasibility Study.

Stephen G. Roman, Harte's President & CEO. " We continue to find exciting targets that require follow-up. The discovery of a highly silicified and sulphidic meta sediment east of the Peacock showing confirms the viability of our IP surveys in locating new gold discoveries."

All Samples were assayed at Activation Laboratories, Thunder Bay, Ontario using standard fire assay methods and AA finish.
