Golden Harp Resources intersects gold mineralization in preliminary drill program

    VANCOUVER, March 20 /CNW/ - Golden Harp Resources Inc. (TSXV:GHR) today
announced results from a preliminary, 1000-metre, diamond drill program on its
Copper Hill gold and base metal project. Gold mineralization was intersected
in several holes in a new target area in the northeastern portion of the
extensive 145 square kilometer property. Further evaluation and additional
drilling in this area is warranted.
    Six holes were drilled (GH1-5 and GH8). The program was important for a
number of reasons:

    -   The drill program outlined a significant new gold target area on the
        property that is virtually untested. Information obtained from this
        drill program indicates that this area warrants further investigation
        and additional drill testing.

    -   Holes GH-2 to GH-5 and GH-8 were all drilled within a very large (3.5
        km by 1.5 km) magnetic high geophysical anomaly. These drill holes
        confirmed gold mineralization in this broad area of interest, which
        is associated with a highly favourable geological environment for
        gold deposition.

    -   A wide zone (31.36 m) of anomalous gold mineralization intersected in
        Hole GH-8 opened up a new target zone with a potential strike length
        of 700 meters within the larger area of interest. Further drilling
        will be prioritized along that strike based on the results of a
        geophysical data review to evaluate the potential for structural

    Significant results or values greater than 1 g/t gold from the most recent
program are presented in the table below:

    Hole No   From        To      Metres   g/t Au           Comment
    GH 4     127.23     128.00     0.77     1.97     Persistence Target Area
    GH 5     111.00     112.00     1.00     1.02     Persistence Target Area
             131.00     132.00     1.00     1.22     Persistence Target Area
             222.90     223.40     0.50     1.29     Persistence Target Area

    Note: GH4 & GH5 drilled from same collar at -45 deg. & -61 deg. dips 
respectively and lengths shown are core lengths as true widths cannot be 
determined at this time.

    The drill program was initiated to evaluate four airborne geophysical
anomalies and a historical gold occurrence. All of this work was conducted on
the northeastern portion of the Company's land holdings in Knight and Natal
    Approximately 500 metres of drilling (Holes GH-4 & GH-5) was completed to
evaluate a documented historical intercept of broad anomalous gold
mineralization spatially associated with ultramafic volcanics and quartz
calcite stockworks. Similar geology was intersected in Holes GH-4 and GH-5
along with a number of narrow gold bearing intercepts and minor anomalous gold
bearing sections.
    Hole GH-8 was drilled to evaluate an airborne geophysical target. The
hole intersected multiple graphitic zones explaining the anomaly. Below the
main conductive graphitic horizon, an intercalated suite of sericite-altered
mafic volcanics and graphitic zones was intersected between 93.65 m and 124.16
m. This suite was intruded by a series of altered quartz feldspar dykes. Fine
sulphide mineralization was found to be associated with both intrusives as
well as the intercalated suite of volcanics and graphitic zones. Within this
altered mineralized interval a distinct broad moderately anomalous gold zone
was noted from 92.8 m to 124.16 m (31.36 m). Further drilling will be
initiated to follow up on this zone, which is thought to be associated with
the main conductive horizon traced for approximately 700 metres of strike
    Holes GH-1 to GH-3 did not intersect the proposed airborne geophysical
targets. The information obtained from these holes in conjunction with the
geophysical data will be re-examined to determine why the holes did not
intersect a conductive zone. All holes were sampled despite the lack of a
conductive zone and some weakly anomalous gold mineralization was noted in
Holes GH-2 and GH-3.
    All gold assays for this program were completed by Swastika Labs using
industry standard fire assay procedures. A series of blanks and standards were
also submitted with each 20-sample batch for quality control purposes.
    Golden Harp is a Canadian mineral exploration company with an enviable
property position, covering 145 km(2) over six townships in the prolific
Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Northern Ontario. The 100%-owned Copper Hill
project hosts four known gold zones, a copper zone, and large portions of the
property have yet to be evaluated. The Company's strategy is to provide its
shareholders with value growth opportunities through the exploration and
discovery of new mineral deposits and by building strategic partnerships to
maximize the exploration activity and discovery potential of its substantial
land holdings. For further information, please visit or
