Bayfield Ventures Corp.: Drilling to Commence in May on Rainy River Claim, NW Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 26, 2007) - Bayfield Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BYV) (FRANKFURT:B4N) and Range Metals Inc. announce that the companies will proceed with a spring 2007 reconnaissance drill program on their 50/50 joint venture Claim Block "A" situated in the Rainy River district, Northwestern Ontario. The property is located approximately 800 metres to the southwest, on strike, of Rainy River Resources new gold discovery on their ODM zone and the # 17 zone.

Rainy River Ontario Claims Map:

The companies have completed a winter exploration program on the Claim Block "A" property. The work program consisted of establishing a ground grid with 50 metre line spacing, followed with a geophysical program including a detailed total field / vertical gradient magnetometre survey and a horizontal loop electromagnetic survey over the grid. The magnetic data has confirmed one northeast trending structure and has identified a second northeast trending structure with a strong relationship to the regional airborne mag data. The new structure is located just up ice of a previous overburden hole that showed strong anomalous gold values in previous assaying.

In addition to the geophysics, 5 reverse circulation drill holes totaling 150 metres were completed on the ground. These holes were designed as infill drill holes to confirm and expand information on a previous reconnaissance overburden drill program initiated by Nuinsco Resources in 1996. Samples from the recent overburden drilling have been submitted for analysis and the companies await results.

The companies will drill 3 - 4 initial holes to test the geological settings to determine conductive zones that may represent structures or sulfides in bedrock. The companies are of the opinion that there is potential for lode gold and / or gold rich volcanogenic deposits. Drilling will commence mid to end of May.

Bayfield Ventures Corp. is actively involved in the exploration for gold in Northwestern Ontario, and copper-gold and coal in the South Gobi region of Mongolia. Property partners include Goldcorp and BHP Billiton.
