Urbana Corporation and Beaufield Resources Inc. Enter Into Joint Agreement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 14, 2014) -


Urbana Corporation ("Urbana") (TSX:URB)(TSX:URB.A)(CSE:URB)(CSE:URB.A) and Beaufield Resources Inc. ("Beaufield") (TSX VENTURE:BFD) have entered into a joint exploration agreement on their Urban Township properties in Quebec.

This joint exploration agreement consists exclusively of a line cutting program to be immediately followed by detailed Induced Polarization and Magnetometer geophysical surveying on both Urbana's and Beaufield's claims. This agreement is exclusively for the line cutting and geophysical surveying, not a total exploration agreement.

Urbana has 44 contiguous claims covering 1116 hectares in the area.

Urbana and Beaufield have agreed to jointly explore and share the boundary information. Each party will retain 100% ownership of their respective properties. Beaufield has agreed to be the operator.

In the area, gold is known to occur alongside pyrite and chalcopyrite which can be detected by induced polarization techniques. The current survey will allow for better resolution and higher precision than any other historical surveys conducted on the properties. Results from the current work program will be compiled and interpreted with historical work to identify and prioritize drill targets.

Urban Township hosts numerous gold and base metal occurrences and is currently the focus of a significant gold program at Windfall Lake by Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation. The Windfall gold deposit is on strike with the Beaufield-Urbana properties and located 5 kilometres to the northeast of the current work.
