Harvest Announces Drill Program Commences on Garcia Flats Gold Project, Nevada

06/26/2007


Harvest Gold Corporation (HVG – TSX.V) June 26, 2007 (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has contracted with Lang Exploration Drilling to conduct the first phase drilling program at it’s Garcia Flats gold project located at the southern extension of the Carlin Trend in north-central Nevada. Drilling has commenced and will continue for up to three weeks. The project is a joint venture with Christopher James Gold Corporation (CJG – TSX.V).

 

A flooded reverse circulation drill rig will be used to complete an estimated four to six holes totaling approximately 4,400 to 6,400 feet (1,340 to 2,000 m).  Initial drill testing of the Garcia Flats property will focus on locating hydrothermal alteration and gold mineralization beneath alluvial cover.  The drill targets occur at a complex structural intersection in which three sizeable target zones have been developed with dimensions ranging up to 3,280 feet (1,000 m) in width and 11,480 feet (3,500 m) in length.  These dimensions rival the sizes of the largest Carlin-type systems in Nevada.  The geologic environment in which these targets occurs is considered to be very prospective for the discovery of concealed Carlin-type mineralization

 

The drill holes will test the Eastern and Central anomalies to a maximum depth of approximately 2,000 feet (approx. 650 m).  The Eastern anomaly is approximately 3,280 feet (approx.1,000 m) wide and at least 11,480 feet (approx. 3,500 m) long. The Central anomaly is 1,968 feet (approx. 600 m) wide and at least 5,900 feet (approx. 1,800 m long). These anomalous zones are adjacent to an interpreted buried intrusion in the southern portion of the claim block.  These anomalies are defined by a combination of Enzyme Leach soil geochemistry, gravity, and magnetic data.

Mr. Greg Hill, President of Harvest Gold Corp (US), states “We are very pleased to begin drill testing in our search for an entirely buried Carlin-type district at Garcia Flats.  Our geochemical methodology has helped us identify three very large soil gold anomalies on the property. They each display characteristics similar in orientation and aerial extent to ore trends found at major Carlin-type gold systems in Nevada. The property occurs in a region of prospective geology where the interpreted structural and lithologic setting shares many characteristics with Carlin-type gold systems. Carlin-type alteration and anomalous gold and pathfinder elements are known on several adjacent properties within 2-5 kilometers of the property.  We hope to find a large covered system at Garcia Flats.”

 

The Garcia Flats project comprises 250 unpatented mining claims covering approximately 20 square kilometers (approximately 5,000 acres) in two claim blocks within a covered pediment setting.   Permitting for this drilling has been completed and the proposed program has received approval from the Bureau of Land Management.

 

Christopher James Gold Corp(CJG-TSV.V) has the option to earn an undivided 70% interest in the property by expending a total of $2,500,000 on exploration and issuing a total of 225,000 shares of CJG to the Company over three years, including expenditures of at least $500,000 in year one.

 

Harvest Gold Corporation is a gold focused exploration company working in Nevada, USA and Manitoba, Canada. In Nevada, the Company is exploring a large generative gold property at Garcia Flats in the South Carlin Trend, an advanced property with a gold-silver resource at the Longstreet Mine, in Northern Nye County, and the Rosebud Mine Project, a past producing mine in northwest Nevada. Harvest is also exploring claims in Manitoba, Canada at the Rice Lake Gold Belt, the Rocky Ridge Gold property in the Lac du Bonnet mining district, and is Joint Ventured with Canadian Gold Hunter Corp (CGH.TSX) at the Assean Lake Gold Project.
