Vancouver, BC - Bayfield Ventures Corp. (TSX-V: BYV) (FWB: B4N) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the expansion of its Rainy River drill program to 50,000 metres from the current 20,000 metres on its 100% owned Rainy River properties in the Rainy River District of north-western Ontario.

Bayfield has winterized its camp facilities and the project will be drilled year round. Core cutting facilities and related infrastructure have been increased accordingly.

Drilling has progressed well since its May start date as highlighted in August and September 2010 news releases.

One of the drill rigs has been moved from the recently completed twelve hole step out program along the Northern Zone of the Burns Block property. The complete assays for this zone are expected very shortly. This rig is now testing for the extension of the high grade gold zone between previously reported holes RR10-15 and RR10-18.
