Bayfield Drill Program to Resume at Burns Block Gold-Silver Project in Rainy River, NW Ontario, Geological, Geotechnical and Geochemical Studies Completed

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 9, 2013) - Bayfield Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BYV)(PINKSHEETS:BYVVF)(FRANKFURT:B4N) is pleased to announce that drilling is to resume at the Company's 100% owned mineral rights Burns Block gold-silver project located adjacent to the east of New Gold's multi-million ounce Rainy River gold-silver deposit and to the west of their expanding Intrepid gold-silver zone in north-western Ontario.

Bayfield recently completed a program of advanced geological, geotechnical and geochemical studies at Company's Burns Block and "B" Block properties. The main goal of the program was to increase confidence in the geometry, grade distribution and additional exploration potential of the up plunge and down plunge portion of the Intrepid shoot of gold-silver mineralization located in the eastern portion of the Burns Block property. While the Intrepid shoot was the main focus of the work program, the investigations also covered the high-grade gold-silver mineralized zones located in the western portion of the Burns Block as well gold and silver mineralization discovered on Bayfield's 100% owned mineral rights "B" Block property to the northeast.

The results of the program are being used in gold-silver zone extension drilling in several areas of the Burns Block project including Intrepid zone extension exploration.

Highlights from this work program included:

  1. Gyro down hole surveying of selected holes in both the eastern and western Burns Block was done and results showed that the routinely collected reflex down hole survey data is accurate and can be relied on for the plotting of the position of completed holes and down hole gold-silver intercepts.
  1. Detailed plotting of geologic and assay results from the Intrepid zone on plan and section has resulted in identification of numerous targets for expanding the high-grade gold-silver zone both by increasing the height of the shoot within host foliated dacite and by extending the shoot further down plunge to the southwest.
  1. Rock Quality Data (RQD) was collected from the majority of completed holes in the Intrepid Zone. The data clearly show that quality and strength of the rock within and adjacent to the high-grade zones is excellent and that no rock quality issues would be encountered in any potential future underground development or mining.
  1. Additional drill targets to the west of the Intrepid zone have been identified during detailed examination of project data on plan section. These targets include opportunities to re-enter and deepen existing holes to explore in areas of known precious metal intercepts.
