Hemlo gold diggers take to the air

Harte Gold, Golden Peak start airborne surveys
Geotech Airborne Geophysical Survey

Two juniors with property staked near the Hemlo gold camp are flying airborne surveys to hunt for more of the precious metal.

Harte Gold announced April 6 that it has started a 7,870-line kilometre airborne magnetic and 2,881-line kilometre electromagnetic survey to identify new drill targets for gold exploration later this year.

The surveys will cover the original Sugar Zone property and recently staked claims to bring the company's total land package to 62,500 hectares.

The property is 80 kilometres east of Barrick Gold’s Hemlo mine complex and is 25 kilometres north of White River.

The company recently wrapped up advanced exploration bulk sample and is transitioning to commercial production this year.

The Toronto junior miner received the Developer of the Year Award from the Northwestern Ontario Prospectors Association this week in recognition of its accomplishments at the Sugar Zone Project.

“We appreciate the recognition of our efforts at the Sugar Zone property and would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Harte Gold team and the many other individuals who have helped make the project a success,” said company president Stephen Roman in a statement.

Just to the north of Barrick Gold’s mine complex, Vancouver’s Golden Peak Minerals has hired GeoTech of Aurora to start a VTEM airborne survey being flown over its 7,250-hectare Heikki Project.

“The large-scale airborne VTEM geophysical program, consisting of approximately 476 line-kilometers, will assist Golden Peak in initially testing potential conductive anomalies anticipated to exist on the properties,” said Todd Hanas, Golden Peak’s interim president, in an April 4 news release.

“This is the first step as we continue to evaluate the project and advance to potentially drill testing the conductors that may be identified.”
