Beaufield Drills 2321 Metres at Opinaca

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Sept. 4, 2013) - Beaufield Resources Inc. ("Beaufield" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BFD) is pleased to announce the completion of its drill program of 13 holes totalling 2,321 metres on its 100% owned Opinaca property in James Bay, Quebec. The 101 km2 property is located in the Eleonore gold camp where Goldcorp is developing a new gold mine with a reported initial investment of $2 billion and scheduled to begin production in 2014. Beaufield's property shares a 21 kilometre long boundary with Goldcorp and contains similar geological formations that host the Eleonore gold mineralization.

The drilling program focused on wide-spread targets consisting of geochemical, geophysical, structural and geological anomalies that may be associated with the presence of gold mineralization found at surface is indicated below:

  • Strong induced polarization targets coincident with gold mineralization;
  • Extension at depth of gold mineralization at surface;
  • Possible extensions of previous drilling results:
    • 8.58 g/t Au over 0.7m (Drill Hole OP-O6-11)
    • 1.1 g/t Au over 20.0m (Drill Hole OP-06-01)
  • Highly anomalous gold, copper and arsenic soils samples.

The table below lists the location of holes in UTM Nad 83 coordinates and the length drilled. A map indicating drill hole locations is available on Beaufield's website.

331 core samples, totalling 275.7 metres were bagged, quality control samples (duplicate, blanks and standards) were systematically inserted in the sequence. Core processing included descriptive logging and systematic sampling for analysis. Every sampled interval was split in half with a core splitter. Half of any sampled core was left in the core box for future reference and the remaining half was bagged and sealed and sent to commercial laboratory. Assays are performed at ALS CHEMEX Laboratories in Val d'Or, Quebec. The processed samples were submitted to a standard Fire Assay with AA technique (Au-AA-23) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Emission Spectroscopy (ME-ICP-41) on a 30 gram sub-sample.
