Harte is busy on several fronts. It is concluding an impact benefit agreement with the Pic Mobert First Nation. The company has hired Halyard to design and build an on-site 525-t/d mill, and given a 10,000-metre drilling contract to Foraco International. Airborne magnetometer, electromagnetic and VTEM surveys will be flown beginning in late February to cover the entire Harte Gold land package.
The company is drilling on both the Sugar zone and newly discovered Middle zone. The latest estimate for the Sugar zone suggested the deposit has 980,900 indicated tonnes averaging 10.13 g/t Au plus 580,500 inferred tonnes at 8.36 g/t.
