Beaufield Contracts Modeling for Tortigny

OTTAWA, ONTARIO – Beaufield Resources Inc. is pleased to advise that it has engaged SGS-Canada Inc. to prepare an updated model and a new resource calculation for the Tortigny base metal deposit. A resource for the Tortigny deposit was originally calculated for Mines et Exploration Noranda Inc., by Geostat, in 1997, Geostat was subsequently acquired by SGS-Canada Inc.

The historical calculation undertaken by Noranda and Geostat in 1997, estimated a resource of 489 000 tonnes 2.21% copper, 6.15% zinc, 0.24% lead, 0.31 g/t gold and 60.08 g/t silver. The 1997 Tortigny resource calculation is not compliant as per NI 43-101/ 4.2 (2b). A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.

Fifteen new holes were drilled in 2008 (8 holes) and 2010 (7 holes). Of these, 5 holes listed below intersected portions of the Tortigny deposit not previously drilled. It will be noted from the table that the grades of mineralization intersected were consistently higher than the holes reported in 1997. Ten exploration holes were also drilled to test nearby electromagnetic anomalies and to test for extensions to the Tortigny deposit. These holes failed to intersect significant mineralization beyond the currently known boundary of the deposit.

Three of the exploration drill hole completed in 2010 aimed for different electromagnetic conductors within a 500m radius of the known deposit, one of which (TO-10-14) intersected several sedimentary sequences containing disseminated copper-zinc mineralization. These sediments are very similar in composition and alteration to the rock hosting the Tortigny deposit and could possibly represent a halo of massive sulphides mineralization located down-plunge. Down hole geophysics and additional drilling are required to test this interpretation.

TO-10-11         4.00 m      0.46%     10.78%    44.50 g/t   0.05 g/t
TO-10-11         4.60 m     2.45 %      1.72%    52.30 g/t   0.28 g/t
TO-10-12         3.30 m      2.00%      5.34%    67.60 g/t   1.40 g/t
TO-10-12        11.90 m      5.19%      6.22%   113.89 g/t   2.20 g/t
TO-10-15        11.00 m      4.54%      7.57%   116.68 g/t   1.25 g/t

For a complete listing of the intervals please refer to News Release dated March 30, 2010.

The model will be used as a basis for additional exploration, drilling at the Tortigny deposit.

The data will be used to determine if a more detailed economic evaluation could be prepared.
