Harvest Gold Reports Longstreet Drilling Results

02/23/2006


Harvest Gold Corporation, (HVG - TSX.V), February 23, 2006 (the "Company") announces that it has received the results and interpretation of the recent drill program completed on its Longstreet Mine property. The Longstreet Gold-Silver Mine Project is located 55 km (30 miles) NE of Tonopah, in Nye County, Nevada. The Company has an option to acquire a 100% interest in the property.

The November, 2005 program consisted of 7 holes and a total of 1150 meters of drilling. The target of the program was to test the down dip extension of the higher grade gold-silver mineralization associated with the Adit Fault vein. These included Hole PR-17 which contains 5 feet (1.52m) averaging 0.616 oz/ton (19.16 g/t) gold equivalent (GE) using a 60/1 silver to gold ratio. To the west, hole PR-18 contains 5 feet (1.52m) @ 0.282 oz/ton (8.77) GE and PR-22 on the same section contains 10 feet (3.05m) @ 0.227 oz/ton (7.06 g/t) GE. These results prompted the test of the underground potential, down dip.

Anomalous silver and/or gold values were intercepted in the drill holes where the vein was expected but no economic metal values were returned in drill sample assays and further drilling down dip of the deposit is not warranted at this time.


Significant assays include PR-29, 410-415 feet (125.0 – 126.5m), 0.012 oz/ton (0.37 g/t) Au and 0.28 oz/ton (8.71 g/t) Ag. Significant silver intercepts include the following: PR-25, 435-450 feet (132.6- 137.0m), 0.63 oz/ton (19.6 g/t) Ag, PR-25, 495-505 feet (150.9-153.9m), 0.73 oz/ton Ag, PR-27, 335-340 feet (102.1-103.6m) 0.52 oz/ton (16.17 g/t) Ag, PR-31, 460-470 feet (109.7-112.8m), 0.86 oz/ton (26.75 g/t) Ag.

The Company will now explore several options available to advance the project including seeking permitting to begin the drilling of the remaining 6 mineralized zones as yet untested by the Company and pursuing a strategic partnership with the goal of achieving gold-silver production from the Longstreet deposit.

The Longstreet Mine property hosts 7 separate gold-silver targets. Four of the prospective zones including the Longstreet Main Zone are heap-leach, open-pit targets with sulphide mineralization potential at depth. The remaining three zones are deeper, "bonanza" style high-grade gold-silver targets.

Drill results and technical data have been reviewed by Dr George Gale, P.Eng, who is the supervising geologist and Qualified Person pursuant to NI-43-101.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,


John Roozendaal B.Sc.
President & Director
Harvest Gold Corporation
