Beaufield Resources Inc. (“Beaufield”) (TSX- V: BFD) is pleased to report on its initial drill results on its Urban property, Quebec.
Beaufield has received assay results for the follow-up summer drilling on the Lucky 7 zone, Macho block, that initially returned 7.86 g/t over 6 metres in on previous hole (Beaufield December 8th, 2015 NR). 4 holes were collared to test potential extensions of the mineralization. 2 other holes tested nearby geophysical targets. Results are compiled below in table 1 below and indicate the presence of gold, silver and copper over several intersections varying from 1 to 8 metres. The results are for 6 holes, totalling 998 metres of drill core.

Beaufield’s 2016 drill program includes descriptive logging and systematic sampling of the drill core for analysis. A total 250 samples were taken from the drill core. Every sampled interval was split in half with a core splitter or cut with a diamond blade saw. Half of any sampled core was left in the core box for future reference and the remaining half was bagged and sealed and sent to a commercial laboratory. Quality control samples (duplicate, blanks and standards) were systematically inserted in the sequence. Assays are performed at ALS CHEMEX Laboratories in Val d’Or, Quebec. The processed samples were submitted to a standard Fire Assay with AA technique (Au-AA-23) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Emission Spectroscopy (ME-ICP-41) on a 30 gram sub-sample.
Beaufield’s 100% owned Urban property is centrally located within the Urban-Barry camp, near infrastructure and is easily accessible by road. The Urban area is an active area with many companies operating in the area including Osisko Mining, Bonterra Resources and Metanor Resources. Please refer to Beaufield’s website for a map indicating the principal stakeholders for the Urban region. Beaufield began acquiring its Urban holdings in 1987 due to the presence of numerous gold occurrences. It is only recently that the importance of urban is being recognized. Beaufields centrally located properties will be aggressively explored. The company is well financed to undertake the work.
