Harvest Gold Corporation's Garcia Flats Property Expanded as Gold Targets Develop

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 30, 2006) - Harvest Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HVG) (the "Company") is pleased to report that it has expanded its claim block at the Company's Garcia Flats gold exploration property on the southern extension of the Carlin Trend in Elko County, Nevada.

Fifty-two additional claims have been staked in the northern and eastern part of the northwest claim block to cover extensions of the Eastern gold and pathfinder element soil anomaly. The new claims cover a portion of the property where gravity data interpretation indicates that the pediment cover is estimated to be as shallow as 300 feet and possibly less. With the addition of the new claims, the property now comprises 250 unpatented mining claims covering approximately 20 square kilometers (approximately 5000 acres) in two claim blocks within a covered pediment setting.

Additional geochemical data and further compilation and interpretation of gravity, magnetic, and soil geochemical data have led to the identification of two prominent north-northwest trending anomalies on the property. These northwest-trending anomalies, referred to as the Eastern anomaly and Central anomaly, respectively, contain the six gold target areas described in the Company's 20 September 2006 news release.

The Eastern anomaly measures approximately 1000 m wide and at least 3500 m long. A second zone, the Central anomaly, is 600 m wide and at least 1800 m long. The Eastern anomaly is adjacent to an interpreted buried intrusion, whereas the Central anomaly is closely spatially associated with the interpreted buried intrusion.

The combined geological, geophysical, and geochemical data received since the beginning of exploration activities in April of this year, suggest the presence of buried Carlin-type gold mineralization.

Greg Hill, Vice President, Harvest Gold USA, says, "There are three significant conclusions that we have reached, based on the information now available to us. They are: 1) the presence of at least six gold target areas, 2) the presence of an inferred buried intrusion, as interpreted by two independent geophysical contractors, and 3) the presence of a major structural corridor and zone of structural intersection. All of these features occur in an area that contains prospective carbonate rocks that act as hosts at some Carlin type deposits" (see Sept. 20, 2006 news release).

Enzyme leach soil survey results from the latest program completed in October are now being received. To date, soil samples have been collected at approximately 1225 sites on the property. Results are pending for additional samples collected to the south of the central anomaly and within a 1400 m by 1600 m block of samples in the southwestern part of the property.

In addition, follow-up sampling has been undertaken in order to replicate and confirm the geochemical results on selected portions of the central target area.

A drill program is now being designed to provide initial drill testing of the eastern and central anomalies.

The Harvest Gold website has been updated to include new images of the Garcia Flats property and the recent exploration accomplishments. Please visit the Garcia Flats project page at www.harvestgoldcorp.com.
