About Golden Harp:

Golden Harp Resources Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration company. Its 145 square km, Copper Hill gold and base metal project is located 100 kilometres south of Timmins, along Highway 560 between Shining Tree and Gowganda, Northern Ontario. The property, situated along the projected western extension of the Cadillac Larder Lake Break in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, hosts several gold zones in a variety of geological settings; a copper zone; and large portions of the property remain to be evaluated. Golden Harp recently optioned a portion of its claim units (the Block A Property) to Benton Resources Corp. who have been actively working the property. The Block A option covers 351 of Golden Harp's 855 claim units in the northeastern portion of the Copper Hill project. Benton may earn up to a 70% interest in the Block A by spending $3 million in exploration and issuing cash and shares to Golden Harp (see NR March 12, 2009 for details). Golden Harp will continue to explore and advance the significant gold and copper targets situated in its 504 claim units, which are contiguous to those in the Block A option. The Company has 24,684,042 shares outstanding.
