Beaufield Resources Inc. (“Beaufield”) is pleased to announce the completion of its fall drill program on its 100% owned Urban Township gold property totaling 9,756 hectares.
A total of 15 holes, totalling 1,693 metres was drilled on Beaufield’s Macho River project, which is part of the Urban property.
The program was meant to test high-priority geophysical anomalies that had been identified with a deep penetrating induced polarization (IP) survey earlier in the year. Several of the targets were located near areas known to host significant mineralization of gold, silver, copper and molybdenum. Gold is often associated with sulfide mineralization in the region.
2 holes were drilled in the western portion of the property, a strong IP anomaly was identified approximately 400m to the southwest of the West Showing where a grab sample assayed 14.8 g/t Au, 156.0 g/t Ag and 1.61% Cu in 2014 (BFD news release, August 1st, 2014).
In the central portion of the property, 4 holes tested strong IP anomalies where chalcopyrite had been identified at surface.
On the east side of the property and closer to the Macho River, several important targets were drilled. 2 Holes tested IP targets interpreted as the extension of the East Showing where a grab sample assayed 20.0 g/t, 54.9 g/t Ag and 2.43% Cu in 2014 (BFD news release, August 1st, 2014). Further south, 2 others holes tested IP targets where chalcopyrite and molybdenite mineralization was uncovered this past summer.
5 additional holes tested IP targets further south, including a 500m long and intense IP anomaly where no outcrops are known to exist.
Geologists identified sulfide minerals in several of the holes. Assay results for this initial drill program should be received within 4 weeks. A follow-up drill program for the area is scheduled to start in January 2016 and will include additional drilling on the above targets and new targets. Additional drill holes are also being planned on the historical Rouleau gold occurrence.
Beaufield’s property is located near infrastructure and is easily accessible by road. The Urban area is an active area with many companies operating in the area including Oban Mining, Bonterra Resources, Urbana Corporation and Metanor Resources. Please refer to Beaufield’s website for a detailed map indicating the principal stakeholders for the Urban region.
