MONTREAL, February 9, 2018 – Beaufield Resources Inc. (“Beaufield” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE: BFD) announces the filing of an independent National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) technical report (the “Technical Report”) on the Lac Rouleau Block of the Urban Project.
The Technical Report, dated February 8, 2018, was prepared by Alain Beauregard, P. Geo. and Daniel Gaudreault, Eng. from Geologica Groupe-Conseil Inc.
Beaufield’s Urban Project is located in the Abitibi area, approximately 190 km northeast of the town of Val d’Or. The Project is comprised of four separate claim blocks covering 22,327 hectares strategically located within the emerging Urban-Barry gold camp. Several prospective projects are present in the area, including Osisko Mining’s Windfall project which is adjacent to Beaufield’s holdings. The area is currently one of the most active gold exploration camps in Quebec.
The Lac Rouleau Block has been the focus of much of Beaufield’s recent exploration effort as it has the highest concentrations of gold occurrences from drill holes and historical surface showings of the Corporation’s holdings. Historic exploration has concentrated on the central and southern portions of the property while the northern portion of the property remains largely unexplored.
Three main mineralized zones (Zone 14, 17 and 18) have been traced by drilling over a 1.4km strike length hosted within the Rouleau Shear Zone (the “RSZ”). The RSZ is considered a 20m to 40m wide corridor that strikes ENE/WSW with a near vertical dip. Zone 18 is considered the most significant, characterized by gold mineralization hosted in a silicified and carbonate altered breccia.
The authors of the Technical Report firmly believe in the exploration potential of the property and recommend an initial phase including geoscientific compilation, 3D compilation of the mineralized zones showing significant continuity, surface exploration work, ground geophysical surveys, geochemical sampling and detailed mapping followed by a second phase beginning with a 3,000 m drilling program.
“Geologica’s comprehensive review of the exploration work completed on our Lac Rouleau project represents an important first step in our current target assessment and future exploration plans. We remain enthusiastic about the geologic potential offered by our strategic position within this emerging gold camp,” stated Ron Stewart, President and CEO of Beaufield.
