Beaufield Resources Inc. (“Beaufield”) reports that it has commissioned Geologica Groupe-Conseil Inc. (“Geologica”) of Val-d’Or (Quebec) to provide a comprehensive compilation and independent evaluation study of the Rouleau gold deposit (Zone 18) and the surrounding area on its Urban property.
The study will include all available historical geophysical, geochemical and diamond drilling data for the central portion of the Rouleau block where at least 3 gold zones have previously been identified by drilling.
The scope of work will consists of:
- Validation and verification of all the data available;
- Digitization of relevant data;
- A detailed geological interpretation (lithology, structure, mineralization);
- The production of a 3D model of the Zone 18 mineralization and geology;
- Providing target recommendations for an initial drill program (Phase 1) in order to evaluate the expansion potential of the gold mineralization on the principal gold zones.
A review of historical data for the zone 18 indicates that many drill holes have intersected gold over varying widths, some of which are presented in the following table:

Located 7 kilometres southeast of the Windfall gold deposit, the Rouleau gold mineralization (or gold zone) was originally discovered in 1987 by a Beaufield Falconbridge earn in and joint venture. Subsequent drilling mainly targeted the core of zone 18 and zone 17 located approximately 900m further west. The proximity of property boundaries at the time constrained drilling, inhibiting verification of potential of the mineralization extensions. Beaufield subsequently purchased the Falconbridge interest and acquired the adjoining properties to now own 100% of the prospective geology.
Based in Val d’Or, Quebec, Geologica Groupe-Conseil Inc., has been offering geological services to the mining and mineral exploration industries for close to 30 years. It has an extensive and deep understanding of the Abitibi geology and was chosen by Beaufield because of its expertise.
Geologica’s client list includes Integra Gold. The Geologica work has contributed significantly to one of the current big exploration successes in Quebec.
