Eastfield Resources Ltd.: Drilling to Start at Okeover

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - Eastfield Resources (TSX VENTURE:ETF) is preparing to start a 1,500 metre (5,000 feet) drill plan consisting of nine holes with a budget of approximately $450,000 at the Okeover (OK) property. Four of the holes will target expansions to the North Lake Zone while three will test the new soil anomaly identified in 2006 at the Northwest Zone and two will test the South Breccia Zone.

The Okeover property is located twenty-five kilometres north of the City of Powell River, British Columbia and several kilometres east of Okeover Inlet, extending southerly from tidewater on Theodosia Inlet. The property consists of fourteen claims covering 5,233 hectares of land. Access is by way of 30 kilometres of highway and secondary logging roads from Powell River. The central part of the property features relatively gentle topography with elevations ranging from 800 to 1,100 metres (2,600 to 3,600 feet) above sea level.

Since its discovery in 1965, the Okeover property has been explored by a number of geological, geochemical and geophysical surveys and by more than 15,000 metres of drilling. Eight zones of copper and molybdenum mineralization have been identified over a northerly trend of 5 kilometres in the central property area. All but one of these zones consists of pyrite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite hosted by quartz veinlets and stockworks. The South Breccia Zone is different and features higher copper grades of up to several per cent in an intrusive breccia. It has seen only limited drilling to date.

Okeover is currently under option to Prophecy Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:PCY) who can earn a 60% interest in the project by completing $1,000,000 in exploration before March 8, 2010. Work funded by Prophecy in 2006 outlined a new copper-molybdenum soil anomaly over a substantial area approximately 1.5 kilometres to the northwest of the North Lake Zone.

In late 2006, N.C. Carter, PhD, P.Eng, completed a technical report on the Okeover Property (OK) pursuant to NI 43-101 that estimated an inferred mineral resource of 86.8 million tonnes grading 0.31% copper and 0.014% MoS2 at a 0.20% copper cut-off for the North Lake Zone. This is only one of the eight zones of known mineralization and the only one where detailed drilling has been completed.
