Vancouver, British Columbia / March 31, 2022 ‑ Harvest Gold Corporation (TSX.V: HVG) (“Harvest Gold”, “Harvest” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the first drill program at its 100% owned Au-Cu Emerson Property located in central B.C has been completed.  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 are pleased to announce the successful completion of the first Emerson winter drill program. My thanks and congratulations to Equity Exploration Consultants, Inc. for their excellent work in planning and execution. They completed the maximum meterage contemplated on time and on budget. Now, we await assay results.”

Harvest drilled 3018 m in seven holes to investigate potential gold and copper mineralization at the Emerson prospect.

Drilling targeted chargeability and conductivity anomalies encountered in a 2021 induced polarization survey, coincident with anomalous soil geochemistry, and rock geochemistry from a 2021 rotary air blast drilling program. The presence of white-mica mineralogy, associated with anomalous gold values in 2018 prospecting programs, was another factor in choosing hole locations.

Harvest would like to thank Apex Diamond Drilling Ltd. and Kyah Resource Inc. for their services provided in conjunction with Equity Exploration Consultants Ltd. The program was conducted safely and with mindfulness to minimize surface disturbance.

Results for this Emerson drill program are pending.
