Harvest Gold Reports Discussions with Glen Hawk Minerals Regarding the Garcia Flats Property Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 30, 2006) - Harvest Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HVG) (the "Company") reports that Glen Hawk Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GHM) is undertaking due diligence on the Company's Garcia Flats properties for the purpose of developing an option agreement with Harvest Gold to earn an interest in these properties. Garcia Flats consists of 198 unpatented claims covering 16 square kilometres (3,960 acres) and is located at the southern extension of the Carlin trend in Elko County, Nevada.

The Garcia Flats claims cover gold and pathfinder element anomalies occurring under shallow cover along the projected extension of the Roberts Mountain thrust. Greg Hill, lead geologist for Harvest Gold, designed an extensive soil program in 2005 with the aim of identifying a district size gold target on the south Carlin trend in Nevada. The Carlin trend is recognized as one of the main producing gold districts in the world. Glen Hawk will be conducting its due diligence on the property and meeting with Harvest Gold management over the next month and hopes to conclude an agreement before the end of June, 2006.

Harvest Gold is currently conducting a detailed soil geochemistry survey of the Garcia Flats claims. The results of the survey will be combined with gravity and other geophysical survey data to identify drill targets. Approximately 1150 soil samples are planned with a sample site spacing of 100 m by 100 m. The large number of soil samples is required to develop quality drill targets at a property as large as Garcia Flats. Ore bodies at Carlin-type mines can be as narrow as 100-200 m, and some have maximum dimensions of only 200-400 m. This systematic soil sampling approach, combined with geophysics, will provide an excellent screening process to identify the best drill targets.
