Beaufield-Drilling Starts at the Tortigny Base Metal Deposit

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 22, 2008) - Beaufield Resources Inc., (TSX VENTURE:BFD), is pleased to announce the start of diamond drilling on its 100%-owned Tortigny base metal deposit,, located within the Troilus properties approximately 100 kilometres north of Chibougamau Quebec. A 3,200 metre contract has been signed.

The intent of the program is to undertake an evaluation and to expand the Tortigny massive suphide base metal deposit. The Tortigny deposit was discovered by Noranda Inc in the 1990's. The deposit comes directly to surface and is accessible by road. Noranda undertook a resource calculation to determine if the minerals could be trucked to their Matagami facility. Low metal prices which prevailed at the time prevented exploitation of the deposit.

A geological resource was calculated at 490,000 tonnes grading 2.2% copper, 6.2% zinc and 61 g/t silver with some gold and cobalt credits. This is an historical, in house calculation which is not to the National 43-101 standard. Data from the current drill program will be combined with the historical data to update the database.

The drilling is expected to take 20 days. This will be followed by finalizing core logging and assaying.

This news release was prepared by Jens E. Hansen, P.Eng Director and President of Beaufield, the Qualified Person under section 43-101.
