Beaufield Drills 2085 Metres at Tortigny Before Christmas Break


- 2085 metres of the 10,000 metres drilling program completed

- 351 core samples selected for assaying

- Drilling to resume at Tortigny in January

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 23, 2010) - Beaufield Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BFD) completed 11 holes for a total of 2085 metres of drilling at Tortigny, north of Chibougamau, Quebec prior to the Christmas shutdown on December 15th. These holes were all drilled vertically, typically spaced at 25 metres intervals and drilled approximately into the central portion of the previously known extent of the Tortigny base metal, silver deposit.

The current program is designed to better determine the geometry of the Tortigny mineralization, to explore for possible extensions, and to examine other nearby geophysical targets.

A detailed interpretation of a regional MEGATEM survey is underway. This survey covers all of Beaufield claims in the Troilus-Frotet mineral belt. An interpretation of an Airborne Gradient Gravity survey covering approximately 100 sq km surrounding the Tortigny deposit is also underway.

Prior to shut down, 11 holes were drilled for which core description, logging and sampling were completed for 4 of these holes. 351 samples core samples were collected and sent to for assay. Results are expected early in the New Year and the remaining 7 holes will be processed in January.

Drilling of the 10,000 m program is scheduled to resume around January 20th, 2011.
