Ottawa, June 28th, 2016 – Beaufield Resources Inc. (“Beaufield”) (TSX- V: BFD) is pleased to report that ground geophysics consisting of a deep penetrating induced polarization (IP) survey and a magnetometer survey has started on the Kent Block in Urban township, Quebec (BFD June 21st, 2016 news release).
The surveys are designed to cover the interpreted extension of Osisko’s Souart historical gold deposit which is located less than 500 metres from Beaufield’s property. The Souart deposit has a historical resource as described in Osisko’s February 3rd, 2016 news release. An interpretation of the results and target selection for drilling will follow upon completion of the surveys.
A second grid totalling 15.2 line kilometres is currently being established on the northern portion of the Macho Block which adjoins Osisko’s Windfall property, and will be surveyed by IP and magnetometer immediately after the Kent block surveys. Beaufield recently acquired this portion of the property due to its excellent gold potential and easy access, being located less than 500 metres from and all weather road (March 14th, 2016 news release). A review of historical drill holes for the area indicates the presence of a wide, 1,000 metres long gold bearing formation open along strike and at depth named the Panache Gold Zone. Drill holes are being planned to test the gold bearing formation below the 200 metre level for the first time as drilling to date by previous operators has been shallow. Select historical drill hole intersections for the area are listed in table 1 below. The surveys will also cover nearby electro-magnetic input anomalies that have never been drill tested.
