Harte's 2008 Drilling Program Begins on Stoughton-Abitibi Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 29, 2008) - HARTE GOLD CORP. (TSX VENTURE:HRT)(FRANKFURT:H4O) is pleased to announce that a 4,200 metre Drilling Program on its Stoughton-Abitibi Property will commence during the month of March 2008. The program will test the near surface open pit potential of the Marriott Gold Zone identified on the property. The completion of the geological compilation of historical data and the Harte's drilling on the Stoughton-Abitibi Property has generated a number of targets. The geological review determined that a shallow dipping vein system and associated alteration envelop controls the gold mineralization and is responsible for the broader historical intersections on the property. These intersections include holes ST98-18 at 1.28 grams/tonne gold over 25.0 metres and ST99-26 at 1.86 grams/tonne gold over 18.2 metres (true widths estimated at 90% of core length). The near surface potential of this open pit style of mineralization has been identified over a 1.0 kilometre strike length. The 2008 program will consist primarily of infill drilling but will also include 5 drill holes that will test possible extensions of the known gold zone further to the east.

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