Harvest Gold To Begin Drilling Gold Targets at Lesavage North Property, Rice Lake Gold Belt, Manitoba


Harvest Gold Corporation (HVG – TSX.V) June 28, 2006 (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that diamond drilling of gold targets on its Lesavage North property (formerly the Johnston property) in the Rice Lake Gold Belt in Manitoba, Canada will commence shortly. A drill rig is being mobilized onto the property and drill targets are selected.

The first 8 drill holes will vary from 100 m to 250 m lengths and will total approximately 1300 meters on the recently discovered Red Hill gold zone. The IP geophysics, just completed over the gold zone, indicates mineralization may extend over a strike length of 800 m and to a depth of 300m, the depth limit of the survey. The gold discovered at Red Hill is associated with very fine grained pyrite and arsenopyrite, which responds well to this survey method. This drilling will test the strike length and the strongest anomalies identified at depth beneath the area where gold mineralization was discovered in the 2005 drill program.

Up to 700m of additional drilling is planned for newly identified anomalies 1 km along strike from the Red Hill zone discovery area. Surface geochemical sampling of the on-strike anomalous zones has been completed and results are pending. Company geologists await confirmation that gold and other pathfinder elements accompany the strong chargeability anomaly identified in the IP survey to determine the best drill locations.

The Company’s first drill program on the property, in October 2005, occurred at the west end of the anomaly. It resulted in the discovery of the Red Hill gold zone and reported up to 7.5 g/t Au over 2 metres in one drill hole and multiple lower grades intervals of 3.4 g/t gold or less in adjacent holes. (See January 18, 2006 Press release)

The gold-bearing alteration associated with the gold discovered at the Red Hill zone is ankerite (iron-magnesium carbonate) which is found in association with many Red Lake gold deposits. Other occurrences of the same type of alteration are located within a large fold structure and in a regional shear zone crossing through the property. This shear zone is part of a major crustal break that extends east through the world-class Red Lake Gold Camp in Ontario 80 km to the east.

The Lesavage North property is located adjacent to the provincial highway and is 20 km east of the newly reopened Rice Lake Gold mine and mill in Bissett, Manitoba operated by San Gold Corp (SGR:TSXV).

Harvest Gold Corporation is a mineral exploration company working in the mining friendly jurisdictions of Nevada, USA and Manitoba, Canada. In Nevada, Harvest is exploring a large generative gold property at Garcia Flats in the South Carlin Trend and has an advanced property with a gold-silver resource at the Longstreet Mine, in Northern Nye County.. In Manitoba, Harvest is exploring three groups of claims in the Rice Lake Gold Belt in SE Manitoba and is the JV partner of Canadian Gold Hunter (CGH.T) at Assean Lake, near Split Lake, Manitoba.
