Bayfield Ventures Corp.: Geological Report Filed on Rainy River Gold Project, NW Ontario

VP Appointed for Mongolia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 21, 2007) - Bayfield Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BYV) (FRANKFURT:B4N) announces that it has commissioned a Geological Report on its jointly held Claim Block "A" property located in the Rainy River District of northwestern Ontario. The Report was filed on SEDAR on March 20, 2007 and can be accessed on the SEDAR website at

Bayfield Ventures Corp. is earning a 50% interest in and to the Claim Block "A" property by issuing cash payments totaling $41,000 and issuing total share considerations of 100,000 common shares of Bayfield Ventures over a four-year working option term. A 1.5% NSR will remain with the optionor, with the Company having the right to buy back 0.25% of the net smelter return for the sum of $375,000.00.

The Claim Block "A" property is located to the immediate southwest of the Rainy River Resources Ltd. property and is located approximately 3 km to the southwest of Rainy River Resources #17, #433, and ODM gold zones.

Rainy River claims map:

The Claim Block "A" property is well within known volcanic greenstone and sedimentary rocks and cover similar lithologies and structures to those hosting the gold zones on the adjoining Rainy River Resources claims.

On February 6th, Bayfield announced that it had contracted with Heath and Sherwood Drilling to complete an overburden drill program on the Company's 100% owned Claim Block "B", "C" and 50% owned Claim Block "A" properties. Approximately 40 overburden drill holes for a total of 1,250 metres have now been completed.

The 3 properties appear to be underlain mainly by mafic intrusive volcanic rocks. Much of the exploration in the area to date (Nuinsco / Rainy River Resources) has been by overburden drilling due to limited geological exposure.

Previous gold values encountered in tills in this area indicate potential for gold rich volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits. The bulk of the gold mineralization outlined to date on the Rainy River Resources property shows a clear alignment with crosscutting structures evident from regional geophysical (magnetic) data. Bayfield has now established 2 grids on the "A" and "B" claim blocks and has completed a detailed geophysical program to further establish the stratographic and structural features as seen in previous airborne geophysics.

Results from the overburden drill program will further enhance drill targets on the Rainy River claims in preparation for a diamond drill program scheduled for mid April 2007.
