Vancouver, B.C., April 3, 2012. Harvest Gold Corporation (TSX.V: HVG) (the “Company”)  reports that the sulphide mineralization intersected in drill holes completed this winter drill season on the CUD property, Rice Lake Gold Belt, Manitoba were absent of significant gold mineralization or other metals of economic interest.

John Roozendaal, President of Harvest Gold Corporation, states: “Though we are disappointed that the near surface mineralization encountered was not gold bearing, the potential for deeper targets projected down plunge of the neighboring San Gold #2-3 zones remain untested.”

Logging of diamond drill core from the program did identify zones of sulphide mineralization associated with high strain shear zones and some alteration that explained the Induced Polarization anomalies, but assays received for those intervals show no enrichment in gold.

Management will review remaining targets on the property before planning follow up exploration on the property.

The CUD Property is located 8 km east of San Gold's operating gold mine in the Town of Bissett, Manitoba. The Cud claim is located immediately north of claims held by San Gold on which their #2-3 gold zones are located.
