PLANS WINTER DRILLING AT THE ELORA GOLD PROJECT, ONTARIO

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 29, 2007) - Seafield Resources Ltd. ("Seafield" or, the "Company") (CNQ:SEAF), is pleased to announce that it has received final listing approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") as a Tier II, mining issuer. The common shares of the Company will be listed and posted for trading on the Exchange commencing Tuesday, October 30, 2007, under the trading symbol SFF.

Seafield is a gold exploration company with projects located in Canada and Mexico. On January 4, 2007, Seafield announced the completion of the acquisition of Minera Tango from Yamana Gold Inc. As a result of this all stock acquisition Yamana has become Seafield's largest shareholder. Minera Tango, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Seafield, owns a 100-per-cent interest in the Tango property, covering about 17,407 hectares in the Rosario epithermal gold-silver mining district, Sinaloa state, Mexico. Minera Tango also owns a 100-per-cent interest (subject to an option described below) in the promising silver-gold Picachos property, covering approximately 7,775 hectares in Durango state in Mexico.

Earlier work on the Tango property defined a large gold anomaly in stream sediment samples covering about 27 square kilometres in the tributaries of the El Placer River. Follow-up prospecting identified gold mineralization in two separate areas. At La Cocolmeca, a northwest-trending swarm of gold-bearing quartz veins is exposed by a northeast-trending fault scarp more than 200 metres high. Within the Cocolmeca swarm, eight samples from Veta Copalquin have yielded average results of 12.9 grams per tonne (g/t) Au, 55 g/t Ag, 0.5 per cent Cu, 1.5 per cent Pb and 2.4 per cent Zn across widths ranging from 0.3 metre to one metre. About 350 metres to the west, eight channel samples across the Urrea corridor, a stockwork zone hosted in flow-banded rhyolite, yielded an average result of 2.1 g/t Au, 3.6 g/t Ag, 0.14 per cent Pb and 0.12 per cent Zn across 5.4 metres. The Urrea corridor has been mapped on surface for about 450 metres along strike. At El Placer, located about two kilometres east of La Cocolmeca, where the vein system also trends northwest, work is currently in progress to evaluate the extent of the mineralization. Initial grab samples from material in old mine dumps at El Placer contain between 20.8 g/t and 6.9 g/t Au.

The Picachos property is subject to an option whereby Northwestern Mineral Ventures has an exclusive option for a period of three years to acquire a 70-per-cent interest in the property by incurring certain expenditures on the Picachos property, issuing and delivering to Yamana common shares in the capital of Northwestern and paying to Yamana a total amount of $400,000 (U.S.). The terms of the Picachos option agreement remain in effect following the acquisition of Minera Tango.

The Picachos property is located approximately 50 kilometres southeast of Goldcorp's Tayoltita mine, a mine that has production to date upward of 650 million ounces of silver and nine million ounces of gold. Preliminary analysis by Northwestern indicates the potential for a near-surface, open-pittable silver-rich area with gold-bearing bonanza shoots. Much of the mineralization on the Picachos claim is controlled by easterly striking veins.

In Ontario, Seafield can earn an 80% undivided interest in the Elora gold property located in the Kenora Mining Division of northwest Ontario. Seafield has conducted initial drilling at Elora with encouraging results and plans a follow up drill program this winter. Elora is a classic Archean, narrow vein, high grade target. Highlights of previous Seafield drilling include:

The first phase of drilling (E-04-14 to 21) targeted the Jubilee Zone which was originally explored by surface drilling and developed by a shaft and drift sampling at the 50 metre level in the 1930s. Seafield's drill program tested extensions of the Zone to the south and down to a depth of 110 metres with encouraging results. The follow up program (E-06-22 to 30) was laid out to test the zone down to a depth of around 200 metres as well as along strike from previous drilling.

The Jubilee Zone comprises a steeply dipping, shear-hosted quartz-carbonate vein system, set in a wider zone of pale green to buff coloured altered and laminated mafic volcanics. Narrow felsic dykes and interflow sediment units also occur in places within the zone. The main mineralized zone is generally a few metres wide (but in places extends up to 28 metres, such as in Hole E-06-22) and is characterized by quartz veins and veinlets with lesser carbonate, sulphides and locally visible gold, set in highly altered and sheared mafic volcanics. Closer to the veins, the volcanic wallrocks are sericitized and carbonatized with laminations and disseminations of coarse pyrite, along with lesser amounts of arsenopyrite, pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite. Gold values are most commonly associated with the quartz veins, veinlets and sulphide concentrations.
