Beaufield Begins Opinaca Exploration Next to Virginia's Eleonore

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 16, 2005) - Beaufield Consolidated Resources (TSX VENTURE:BFD) Jean-Pierre Cloutier P. Geol, Beaufield's Qualified person for the Opinaca project, and Jens Hansen P. Eng., Beaufield's President, undertook a 4 day visit to the property this week to initiate the summer exploration program. Geophysics was completed during the winter and the Beaufield camp has been equipped to accommodate the crews. The summer exploration program will be undertaken by Geologica Groupe-Conseil Inc starting June 16, 2005 under the field direction of Alain J. Beauregard P. Geol.

The program will focus on extending previously discovered sulphides and gold mineralization. Work will be performed by the Geologica crews. The Beaufield property covers approximately 9684 hectares including, in the opinion of Beaufield management, at least 6.5 km of strike of the geologically favorable horizon hosting Virginia's Eleonore gold discovery. Virginia has reported gold occurrences immediately east and west of Beaufield with Virginia samples, according to their website, measuring up to 19 g/t located on strike and less than 2 km from the Beaufield boundary.

The summer phase will be followed by detailed exploration of specific targets and is planned to include overburden removal and drilling.
