2005 Definition and Geostatistical Massive Sulphide Drill Results in the Pit Area

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 3, 2006 -- Starfield (OTC BB: SRFDF) (TSX-V: SRU) completed a definition diamond drilling program comprising 17 holes in the "Pit Area" of West Zone in 2005. Variably spaced drill holes over a strike length of approximately one kilometer were designed to provide additional data for a revised resource estimate currently being undertaken by independent consultant Dr. N.C. Carter, P. Eng. These 2005 holes will also provide data requested by Geostokos Ltd. for a geostatistical evaluation study being conducted by independent consultant Dr. Isobel Clark.

Highlights of the analytical results for massive sulphide lenses intersected during the 2005 drilling program are shown in the following Table and complete results are contained in Appendix: Table 1 of this news release. A discussion of analytical procedures was provided in News Release #SRU-03-06 dated March 1, 2006.

Eight definition drill holes (2392 meters of core) targeted massive sulphide lens(es) and/or Low-Sulphide Platinum Group Element mineralization and/or footwall massive sulphide mineralization. Nine holes (1140 meters in total) were drilled mainly to provide data for the ongoing geostatistical analyses of grade distribution within the massive sulphide lens(es).

In the "Pit Area" near the west shore of Ferguson Lake, the principal sulphide lens(es) are exposed over a strike length of approximately 1.8 kilometers. The lenses dip moderately north (45 degrees) and geophysical (electromagnetic) modeling indicates a continuous sheet-like body which has a top to bottom extent of between 200 to 450 meters.

Most of the drilling to date has been designed to intersect the mineralized sheet normal to its 45 degrees north dip in order to provide intersections representing the true thicknesses of the various sulphide lenses. Four of the 2005 drill holes were recommended by Geostokos to test the north-dipping sulphide sheet down-dip as far as practical in order to obtain a nearly continuous sulphide intersection for purposes of comparison of grade distributions and structural continuity with those data obtained from numerous drill holes which tested the zones over true widths.

This difficult task was best accomplished in hole FL05-237 where a continuous massive sulphide intercept of 101.67 meters grading 1.3% copper. 0.74 % nickel, 0.08% cobalt, 1.96 g/t palladium and 0.39g/t platinum was recovered. Drill holes FL05-238, 242 and 243 had variable degrees of success of staying continuously within the sulphide sheet down its dip extent. For example, FL05-242 was able to stay within the sulphide lens over a 22 meters interval while FL05-243 included several intervals of 3.24, 5.4 and 4.39 meters (see Appendix: Table 1). None of the four holes intersected the full down-dip extent as modeled by downhole geophysical surveys. However, continuity and grade comparisons can be made down the hole and along strike.
