OTTAWA, ONTARIO – Beaufield Resources Inc. is pleased to announce that it has expanded its claim holdings, located 40 kilometres northwest of Schefferville Quebec, from an initial 139 claims to 237 claims or to 11,893 hectares. The claims were originally acquired to cover several highly anomalous lake sediment zinc samples taken by Ressources Naturelles et Faunes, Quebec in the late 1980’s. Several of these samples exceed 5000 parts per million zinc and could be indicative of SEDEX zinc deposits. SEDEX are the world’s most important source for zinc and lead of which the world’s largest is the Red Dog in Alaska (Ref NR 26-11-2009). The claims adjoin those of New Millennium Capital Corp. and others exploring for and developing new world class iron deposits. The Beaufield claims also have iron potential which will be explored concurrently with the zinc. Data from a fall 2009 airborne program will be used to direct summer 2010 exploration.
Beaufield recently map staked 119 claims or 5,839 hectares, 30 kilometres southwest of Schefferville, to cover a series of gold geochemical anomalies published on March 7, 2010 by the Ressources Naturelles et Faunes Quebec. (PRO 2010-02). The area is of particular interest because it has not been previously examined for gold. These claims will be prospected this coming summer as part of an overall program in the area.
