Eastfield Resources Ltd.: 2006 Howell Creek Drilling Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 29, 2007) - In 2006 La Quinta Resources Corp. completed six diamond drill holes totaling 884 metres on Eastfield Resources' (TSX VENTURE:ETF) Howell Creek gold property located in southeastern British Columbia. Drilling commenced on September 7 and was completed on November 7. The 2006 drill program focused on new target generation and an evaluation of targets identified in a 2004 airborne geophysical survey.

The first three holes, collared in the "E" grid area of the property (northwest side of property), were completed to expand upon results previously obtained by Placer Dome Inc. Holes HW-601 to HW-603 intersected long intervals of Proterozoic siltstone intruded by several phases of monzonite with variable quantities of pyrite and variable quartz veining and silicification. These holes were drilled on magnetic highs indicated in the 2004 airborne survey and successfully confirmed intrusive activity in this area. Gold values, while commonly anomalous, were not economic, although the bottom 8.6 metres of HW-603 (the most northerly drill hole) returned 0.39 g/t gold. A large area of the "E" grid magnetic anomaly, covered with overburden and continuing to the north, remains untested.

The fourth and fifth holes, HW-604 and HW-605, were drilled approximately two kilometres further to the south and encountered potassic altered alkalic porphyry intruding Proterozoic sediments. Gold mineralization was not significant.

The sixth and final hole, HW-606, located on the western side of the Howell "A" grid (eastside of property), was successful throughout and encountered mineralized dolomite grading 0.42 g/t gold over the last 42.7 metes, bottoming at 66.5 metres in dolomite grading 0.44 g/t. Hole HW-606, is also significant because it started in the less prospective Proterozoic siltstone before encountering the preferred Paleozoic carbonate host at 24 metres. HW-606 expands the prospective area for carbonate hosted disseminated gold mineralization both at depth and to the west. Previous holes in the "A" Grid have included hole HRC-25 with 58 metres grading 1.23 g/t gold including 9 metres grading 2.99 g/t gold and hole 02-3 with 82 metres grading 0.65 g/t gold.

The Howell Creek property is underlain by a thick sequence of Paleozoic carbonate and clastic rocks and older Proterozoic sediments. Mid-Cretaceous syenite and trachyte intrusions occurring as sills, dykes, plugs and diatremes intrude these units. Gold mineralization occurs disseminated in limestone and with quartz stockworks in syenite intrusives and Proterozoic sediments.

The Howell property which consists of eleven mineral claims totaling 4,300 hectares (11,600 acres) was acquired by Eastfield in 1999 from Placer Dome Inc. (now Barrick Gold Corporation) and Cominco Limited (now Teck Cominco Limited) through an agreement that allows Eastfield to acquire a 100% interest in the property by satisfying certain share issuances and completing $1,000,000 in exploration work before August 31, 2008.

In 2004, Eastfield signed an option agreement with La Quinta, which has the option to earn a 60% interest in the Howell Property by making $220,000 in payments, issuing 150,000 shares and funding $900,000 in exploration before Dec 2008. To date, La Quinta has completed approximately $450,000 in exploration expenditures and Eastfield (including previous option partners) an additional $300,000.

About Eastfield Resources Ltd.

Since its inception in 1987, Eastfield has utilized a business strategy that amplifies its exposure by securing third party exploration financing on the majority of its projects. This strategy has allowed the company to minimize share dilution. After being listed for nineteen years the company has 41,809,919 shares issued and currently owns six mineral projects in British Columbia and one in the state of Nevada. Six projects are currently active and optioned to other companies who are responsible for all exploration costs.

Eastfield and Lysander Minerals Corp., its current partner in the Lorraine-Jajay project located in northern BC and optioned to Teck-Cominco, have recently announced plans to segregate their respective 50% interests in this project into a new company ("Newco"). Eastfield and Lysander will then each receive 50% of the shares, which will then be distributed prorata to existing shareholders (Subject to final shareholder and regulatory approvals).
