Vancouver, BC – August 5, 2021 – Harvest Gold Corporation (“Harvest”, “Harvest Gold” or the “Company”) (TSXV: HVG) is pleased to provide an exploration update on its 100% owned Au-Cu Emerson Property located in central B.C. The 56 km2 Emerson Property comprises 14 contiguous mineral claims located 15 km west of Houston, B.C. with a nearby railroad, high voltage powerline and gas pipeline.

Harvest Gold President and CEO Rick Mark states: “We have just received the first update on our RAB drilling program at Emerson from Equity Exploration Consultants Ltd. and the initial visual results are very encouraging, as described below. These initial results bolster our hypothesis that there is a substantial and prospective target at Emerson”

Mr. Henry Awmack, Property co-vendor and member of Harvest Gold’s Geoscience advisory board, states: “I am very encouraged that these early RAB drilling results already show a minimum 400 x 1100 metre area of bedrock with the same lithologies and alteration as mapped in subcrop on surface, as noted in the Description column in Table 1 below. These lithologies and alterations also appear to be responsible for the overlying extensive Ag-Au-Pb-Mo-Zn soil anomaly.”


  • 7 of 17 planned Rotary Air Bast (“RAB”) holes are completed.
  • Three of seven holes (EMR21-014 to 016), drilled in an east-west direction along road #4, encountered strong quartz-sericite-pyrite (“QSP”) alteration in bedrock under shallow glacial till cover over an east-west distance of approximately 400m. (See Table 1 and Figure 1).
  • Hole EMR21-002, drilled approximately 650 m east of EMR21-014, also encountered strong QSP alteration overprinting a feldspar porphyry. (See Table 1 and Figure 1).
  • All drill pads for RAB and Diamond Drilling and all access roads are completed. The drill pad locations are designed to provide maximum flexibility to effectively transect the Emerson target to the north and south. 
  • Ongoing brushing and clearing for the upcoming Induced Polarization (“IP”) geophysical survey continues with over 3 K brushed to date.
