VANCOUVER, May 9 /CNW/ - Golden Harp Resources Inc. (GHR:TSXV) is pleased to announce that Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. has fulfilled all conditions and has met all terms to earn a 60% interest in Block A of Golden Harp's Copper Hill Property at Shining Tree under the option agreement originally entered into with Benton Resources Corp. on June 1, 2009. Mineral Mountain assumed the rights under this agreement from Benton in October, 2010.

The claims included under Block A represent 351 claim units of Golden Harp's 855 claim units covering several historical gold occurrences including the Cook Zone and the MC Zone. Under the terms of June 2009 option agreement, Benton had the right to earn a 60% interest in the project by making cash payments totaling $75,000, issuing a total of 550,000 common shares of Benton to Golden Harp and making expenditures totaling $2 million within three years.

Mineral Mountain has also given notice that it intends to acquire a further 10% as permitted under the option agreement. Mineral Mountain is required to make a cash payment of $50,000 and make expenditures on the property of $1 million within 2 years from the date of notice to earn the additional 10% in Block A.

Once Mineral Mountain has earned its 70% interest, the Block A property will be subject to a joint venture agreement between Golden Harp and Mineral Mountain, with Mineral Mountain as the initial operator.

Under a separate option agreement, Mineral Mountain continues toward earning a 60% in the Main Block of Golden Harp's Copper Hill Property (see news release dated August 31, 2010).
