Vancouver, British Columbia / February 22, 2024 Harvest Gold Corporation (TSXV: HVG) (“Harvest Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, further to its news releases of December 18, 2023 and January 23, 2024, it has received final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) to the Option Agreement (the “Agreement”) entered into with Vior Inc. (“Vior”) for the Mosseau Gold Project and has made the initial payment and share issuance under the Agreement.

Harvest Gold President and CEO, Rick Mark, states: “We are very excited to now begin to create value for our shareholders in Quebec. The Harvest Gold team spent over a year finding a gold bearing preoprty with a compelling value proposition in the right jurisdiction. Our technical team was unanimous in their support for moving forward with Mosseau. Further, I believe the fact that Osisko and Goldfields have partnered to be active exploders in the Urban Barry belt will help bring attention to our work at Mosseau. And Osisko owns 14% of our new partner Vior. 2024 will be a busy year and we look forward to keeping the market abreast of our plans and accomplishments.”

As set out in our December 18, 2023 news release, pursuant to the Agreement, Harvest Gold can earn up to a 100%* interest in the Mosseau Gold Project by completing the following:

Location and regional geology of the Mosseau and Urban Barry Projects


(1)* Subject to varying 0.5 to 2.0% net smelter returns royalties (the “NSR”) due to underlying vendors of claim located over the historic Morono resource and Soquem claims located in the northwest corner of the Mousseau Project.

(2) All dollar amounts referred to are stated in Canadian Dollars.

(3) All work in excess of the yearly minimum amount will be applied to the following year’s Work Commitment.

(4)* Subject to a 1% NSR royalty to Vior of which 0.5% maybe purchased by Harvest Gold for $1,000,000 at anytime after the publication of a 43-101 compliant mineral resource.

(5) If Harvest Gold does not elect to earn a 100% interest, either by failing to complete the required $1,000,000 payment on or before June 30, 2028 or by notifying Vior in writing of its intent prior to such deadline, Harvest Gold and Vior will form a joint venture pursuant to which Harvest Gold and Vior will respectively hold an undivided 80% and 20% interest (the “Joint Venture”). Thereafter, Harvest Gold and Vior will each fund all work expenditures on Mosseau in proportion to their respective interests in the Mosseau Project and, if either party fails to pay its share of funding, a standard dilution calculation will apply.

* Vior and Harvest Gold have agreed to defer the cash payment of $50,000 to April 30, 2024.

The Company has issued the initial 2,000,000 common shares (the “Shares”) at a deemed price of $0.02 per Share (being the current market price of Shares on the Exchange), representing a total deemed value of $40,000, to Vior and has made the initial $50,000 cash payment.

The Shares are subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation and the Exchange Hold Period.
