Harte Launches Stoughton-Abitibi Project in the Abitibi Gold Belt

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 10, 2008) - HARTE GOLD CORP. (TSX VENTURE:HRT) - Mr. Robert J. Platt, President & CEO of Harte Gold Corp. ("the Company" or "Harte"), is pleased to announce that the Company has again increased the size of its Stoughton-Porcupine property through the acquisition of 86 adjoining mining claims located in the Province of Quebec. These claims are situated due east of the recently expanded Ontario property and were acquired under the same parameters as outlined in the Company's Press Release dated December 11, 2007.

This expansion into the Province of Quebec aligns with the Company's geological focus to unlock the tremendous gold discovery potential of the Abitibi Gold Belt. To better reflect the Company's increased presence within the Abitibi, the Company is renaming its property the STOUGHTON-ABITIBI. "Our corporate mission is to become a significant gold producer in the heart of Canada's Abitibi Gold Belt," said Mr. Platt. "The expansion onto the Quebec side of the Belt with a new regional focus is part of the Company's strategic initiatives for 2008 and beyond."

The Stoughton-Abitibi Property is located just north of the Destor-Porcupine Fault and 10 km east of the Holloway-Holt gold mine and mill infrastructure. It also adjoins significant land-holdings held by Iamgold to the east and St Andrew Goldfields to the west. Provincial Highways 101 and 388 connecting Ontario and Quebec are located immediately to the south of the Property.

The Quebec claims add an additional 35 sq km to the Ontario property and bring the size of the Stoughton-Abitibi Property to 80+ sq km (20,130 acres). More importantly, the expanded property now covers a 22 km extent of favorable geology to the north of and along major splay structures of the Destor-Porcupine Fault. The acquisition of the Quebec claims will allow the Company to explore and drill several known gold-bearing structures. Recently completed geological compilation of historical data and drill results of the area indicate a favorable geological setting with anomalous gold values in previous outcrop and drill-hole sampling. The strike extent of these anomalous zones on the expanded property remains untested and will be evaluated in upcoming programs.
