Harvest Gold (tsx.v:HVG) (Harvest Gold or the Company) is pleased to announce initial results of part of its Phase 1 exploration program at its high-grade Cerro Cascaron gold-silver project in Mexico.
The program successfully identified six significant silver-rich polymetallic veins at the Cascarita prospect and provided a stronger structural understanding of the area through underground sampling of historic adits. High grade silver with strong lead and zinc values were encountered within the adits. The Cerro Cascaron project covers 69 square kilometres in a historic Colonial-era mining district in the prolific Sierra Madre Occidental precious metals belt of western Chihuahua State, Mexico.
The sampling of historic adits at Cascarita provided five channel sample cuts with widths of 1.4 to 3.3 metres that grade between 231 and 542 g/t silver equivalent*. Associated prospecting also identified a silver rich poly-metallic vein field that includes six sub-parallel vein systems within a 900 metre by 300 metre corridor.
The prospect has never had modern exploration of any kind. This large vein field has become another early priority for the Company and more detailed mapping and surface sampling is underway.
