TORONTO, ONTARIO, Jul. 21, 2010 (Marketwire) -- HARTE GOLD CORP. ("Harte") (TSX VENTURE:HRT)(FRANKFURT:H4O) is pleased to announce that a high grade sample taken by field prospector Gary Peacock on the Sugar Zone Property in late 2009, "under an overturned tree," which graded 87.8 grams/tonne, has now been corroborated by Harte Gold's VP Exploration, Mr. George Flach, P.Geo. with recent grab sampling from the site which returned 9.85 g/t, 52.8 g/t, 6.84 g/t and 37.3g/t.
Of importance to note is that these samples were taken from metasediments with significant amounts of disseminated sulphides which is a new type of mineralization in addition to the quartz vein hosted Sugar Zone deposit.
Due to the importance of this discovery, Harte is currently in the process of sourcing equipment to clear the area around the showing with a backhoe and will fast track a drill rig onto the site. The backhoe and drill program will confirm whether these samples are a bedrock occurrence.
In addition, some previously completed Induced Polarization (IP) surveys have shown a series of northwest - southeast trending anomalies in the vicinity of these samples which may indicate the presence of sulphides.
