Harvest Completes First Phase of Drill Program: Expands Claim package at Garcia Flats Gold Project, Nevada


Harvest Gold Corporation (HVG – TSX.V) July 26, 2007 (the “Company”), along with its joint venture partner, Christopher James Gold Corp. (CJG – TSX.V), has completed its first phase drilling program at its Garcia Flats gold project located at the southern extension of the Carlin Trend in north-central Nevada. Three holes totaling 5385 feet (1641 m) were drilled with a flooded reverse circulation drill rig. Gold assay and multielement geochemical results are pending.


One-hundred seven new claims have been located, expanding the property to the north, west, and east. The Garcia Flats project now comprises 357 unpatented mining claims covering approximately 29.8 square kilometers (approximately 7400 acres) in two claim blocks within a covered pediment setting.

This initial drill test of the Garcia Flats property intersected hydrothermal alteration beneath alluvial and volcanic cover in two of the three holes. Gold assays and multielement geochemistry are pending for all holes. Paleozoic bedrock was reached in all three holes at depths ranging from 730-1660 feet (223-506 m). These rocks consist of calcareous sandstone, calcareous siltstone, and limestone intruded by felsic dikes. Faults were intersected in two of the holes as evidenced by breccia and gouge zones.

Three drill hole locations drilled on Garcia Flats property.

Hydrothermal alteration was encountered in two holes, GFR-1 and GFR-3. Alteration includes decalcification, skarn, and fine grained disseminated pyrite in the sedimentary rocks and propylitic and argillic alteration in igneous rocks. Sulfides are dominantly fine-grained pyrite with lesser medium-grained pyrite; fine-grained chalcopyrite is also present in some intervals. .

Drill targets at Garcia Flats have been delineated by evaluating coincident geochemical and geophysical anomalies generated by enzyme leach, gravity, and magnetic surveys. Three main target zones have been identified; the largest of these is 3,280 feet (1,000 m) wide and 11,480 feet (3,500 m) long. These dimensions rival the sizes of the largest Carlin-type systems in Nevada. The geologic environment in which these targets occur is considered to be very prospective for the discovery of concealed Carlin-type mineralization.

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.
