Golden Harp Resources completes 1,556-metre drill program to test gold-bearing green carbonates at MC Zone

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - Golden Harp Resources Inc. (TSXV:GHR) today
announced that it has completed a 1,556-metre (approximately 5,106 ft) diamond
drill program to continue testing the significant gold potential at the
Company's new MC Zone. Three holes were completed on the MC Zone and two
additional drill holes were completed to evaluate other areas of interest on
Golden Harp's 145 square kilometre property. All core samples for the program
have been shipped to the lab and assays are pending.
    "We are very encouraged by this recent drill program. Golden Harp has now
tested the MC target area for approximately 200 metres of strike, to a
vertical depth of approximately 400 metres and has encountered similar
geological environments to the first program. Furthermore, there are
additional geophysical targets associated with the MC Zone, which warrant
drill testing in a future program," said Kevin Filo, Senior Geologist.
    Golden Harp completed its objective of evaluating the gold mineralization
along strike and at depth proximal to the Company's first two discovery holes,
GH-023 & GH-025 (See NR June 10, 2008 for further details). Both drill holes
returned broad zones of gold mineralization. Highlights include: GH-025 which
intersected 1.02 g/t gold over 43.75 metres including intervals of 1.67 g/t
gold over 16 metres and 2.25 g/t gold over 10 metres; and similarly, GH-023,
located 40 metres south of GH-025, which intersected 1.17 g/t gold over 12.93
metres and 0.73 g/t gold over 28.28 metres. The green carbonate-altered or
fuchsitic ultramafics hosting the gold mineralization on the MC Zone are
important because this geological unit has been responsible for hosting
significant gold production from various mines to the east of Golden Harp's
property along the Cadillac Larder Lake Break, including the prolific
Kerr-Addison mine.

    Golden Harp Resources Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration company. The
Company's 100%-owned, 145 square kilometre, 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 extensive 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. For further information, please visit or
