Harvest Gold Completes High-Resolution Airborne Magnetic Survey over its Urban-Barry Project in Quebec

Harvest Gold Corporation

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - May 14, 2024 ‑ Harvest Gold Corporation (TSXV: HVG) (“Harvest Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has completed an extensive 1,574 line-km high-resolution helicopter survey, covering 68.61 km2 over its Urban Barry-Project located in the Urban Barry region of Quebec (Figure 1).

The helicopter-borne system utilized dual laser optically pumped magnetic sensors providing 1,000 measurements per second (1,000 Hz) from a “stinger” mounted at the front of a Guimbal G2 light helicopter. The survey was conducted with 50 m line separation and 500 m control lines spacing, maintaining a consistent minimum elevation of 15 metres above the ground to optimize data quality (Figure 2).

Rick Mark, President and CEO of Harvest Gold states: “We have been updating our shareholders and the market on the airborne magnetic survey at our flagship property, Mosseau. Today, we begin to report on our nearby, 100% owned Urban-Barry project. This geologically similar property is largely till covered and has had little historical exploration. These initial high resolution mag results confirm several cross cutting structures, where gold tends to accumulate, which will guide us as we consider next steps on the ground.”

Upcoming compilation work will include incorporating the recent magnetic data with the LiDAR and topographic digital elevation model to identify mineralized shear zones and cross cutting faults. The magnetic data will also be used to update the geology map and identify key stratigraphic contacts and structures along an 18-km strike that traverses the entire length of the property.

Louis Martin, Senior Technical Consultant of Harvest Gold remarked: “The quality of data obtained from this high-resolution magnetic survey far surpasses that of previous regional surveys conducted by the government as shown in Figure 3. With this advanced dataset, we can now interpret the underlying geology with greater confidence and precision, enhancing our understanding of key structural features such as shear zones and faults.”

The Urban-Barry property is being developed in conjunction with Harvest Gold’s nearby Mosseau property, located 15 km to the southwest. Both properties are located in the Urban Barry region of the Abitibi and characterized by favourable volcanic rocks and the Wilson pluton.

2024 Airborne Magnetic Survey

The high-resolution airborne magnetic survey over Harvest Gold’s Urban Barry property was conducted by Novatem Airborne Geophysics (“Novatem”) of Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec. The project is located 39 km east of the town of Lebel-sur-Quevillon. The survey was completed between March 27th and April 1st, 2024. The survey covered a total area of 68.61 km2 and included 1,574 line-km. Novatem ensured rigorous onsite data processing and quality control, in addition to providing both preliminary and final survey products.
