Vancouver, British Columbia / February 14, 2022  Harvest Gold Corporation (TSX.V: HVG) (“Harvest Gold”, “Harvest” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that drilling has begun 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: “It has been almost 18 months since we acquired Emerson. Our excellent technical team working closely with Equity Exploration Consultants Ltd. (“Equity”) has methodically built the Emerson database to allow us to select these initial drill targets. I would like to thank our shareholders for their patience which has allowed us to do this preparation the right way. We are all excited and very hopeful it will have been worth the wait.” 

The drill holes on this initial diamond drill program will follow up targeting results provided by the cumulative results of the RAB drilling, the 3D-IP survey and magnetics inversions. Specifically, the RAB drilling helped to refine the bedrock location of anomalous Au-Ag-Cu-As-Zn chemistry highlighted in historical soil and shallow trench data, as well as clearly define the extensive alteration which Harvest believes is creating the chargeability-conductivity high and magnetic low anomalies modeled from the geophysical surveys. 

The planned drill program consists of up to 2600m in up to 5 holes and is scheduled to be completed in 6 to 7 weeks. This program is being managed by Equity with the assistance of local sub-contractors.
