OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(Dec. 8, 2008) – Beaufield Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BFD) is pleased to announce that drilling started on December 4 on the Troilus properties where Melkior Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MKR) is earning a 50% interest from Beaufield Resources Inc. Details of the agreement were described in the press release of October 24, 2008.
The claims are located in the Troilus mineral belt which hosts the Inmet Mining Corp Troilus gold mine. In addition to the Troilus gold mine the Troilus area also hosts several base metal and gold occurrences some of which have reported tonnages. These include Tortigny and Moleon base metal deposits (100% Beaufield).
The current grassroots program operated by Beaufield, consists of drilling at least 7 holes for approximately 1,000 metres. The holes are targeting specific airborne geophysical anomalies with coincident electromagnetics and magnetics. Prior to drilling these targets they have been confirmed by ground geophysics. The geophysical anomalies being drilled are indicative of those typically caused by massive sulphides which in this environment can host copper-zinc sulphides with accompanying gold and silver. The budget for the present Troilus program is $300,000.
