Bayfield Expands Rainy River Drill Program by an Additional 50,000 Metres

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 26, 2011) -Bayfield Ventures Corp.(TSX VENTURE:BYV) (FRANKFURT:B4N) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the expansion of its Rainy River drill program by an additional 50,000 metres on its 100% owned Rainy River properties in the Rainy River District of north-western Ontario. The Company's Burns Block is situated immediately to the east and on strike to Rainy River Resources' gold project.

Bayfield has drilled approximately 33,000 metres of the initially planned 50,000 metre drill program which commenced in May 2010. The Company recently raised an additional $5.5 million and is well funded with $11 million in its treasury to double the planned drilling to 100,000 metres. Bayfield has contracted a third diamond drill rig which will be mobilized to the Company's Burns Block in early May.

The Company remains focused on two complimentary exploration efforts on the Burns project including delineation of the high grade zones in the west portion of the property (36 g/t Au over 10m in hole RR10-18, 31.7 g/t Au over 3m in RR10-15, and 6.75 g/t Au and 211.07 g/t Ag over 3m in a new discovery zone in RR11-14) as well as the eastward exploration towards the central portion of the block. The drilling is progressing very well and has yielded impressive results thus far as Bayfield continues to define the eastward extension of Rainy River's main ODM17 gold zone. The bulk of the drilling on the Burns Block has been focused in the western 200 metres of the property leaving 600 metres of highly prospective strike length to be explored.

Additionally, Bayfield plans to drill a series of exploration holes on its large and virtually unexplored "C" Block property which lies on the westward extension of the volcanic belt that hosts the known gold-silver deposits in the district. This drilling will be done in winter 2011 and 2012 as ground conditions in summer are too wet to allow efficient drill exploration.
