Beaufield Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BFD) is pleased to report results from twenty-eight diamond drill holes totalling 6807 metres from a 11,393 metre drill program at Tortigny, located on its 100% owned Troilus property, 100 kilometres north of Chibougamau, Québec.

The drilling program on the Tortigny deposit started on November 24th 2010 and finished on June 8th 2011. 47 holes, totalling 11,393 metres, were drilled. Core description and sampling was completed on June 29th 2011.

Thirty-four holes were drilled vertically, regularly over an area of 300 metres by 50 metres, to define the deposit. Twelve of these holes (TO-10-20 to TO-11-31), were released previously (NR’s February 4, 2011 and April 20, 2011). Nine holes were drilled, north to south, at an angle varying between 45° to 60° to help determine the thickness of the mineralized zones. Finally four holes, drilled on sections, located 100 to 150 metres west of the deposit, aimed a geophysical conductor, interpreted as a potential extension of the deposit.

The drilling suggests a deposit more complex than originally supposed, with new mineralized lenses, or folded portions of known zones being located below the assumed bottom of the hinge. Beaufield is presently building a model of the mineralized body. It should be noted that the mineralized in-hole sections reported here are not necessarily true width. The angle between the drilled hole and the mineralized zone varies from one hole to another depending on the steepness of the mineralized zone.

The mineralized intercepts from the vertical holes are reported in the table below. Four holes (TO-11-34; TO-11-36; TO-11-37 and TO-11-50) were drilled on the margins of the deposit and didn’t encounter economic mineralization.

Finally four holes tested a geophysical conductor, on strike with the known mineralized zone, 100 to 150 metres west of the deposit. Hole TO-11-45 oriented N360°, didn’t reach the target and couldn’t get through a fault zone. Hole TO-11-58 and TO-11-59 attempted to test the same target from the opposite direction, N180°, with no significant interception. TO-11-46 located 100 metres west of the deposit intercepted massive sulphides mineralization at a vertical depth of 226 m. The intercept is narrow, but excellent grade and suggests a possible westward extension of the deposit.

Results are reported in the table below.

A independent NI 43-101 resource calculation is currently underway for the Tortigny deposit. In the Tortigny area, multiple drill targets have been identified by an induced polarization survey. Ground follow-up campaign will evaluate the targets before drilling.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

Core processing included descriptive logging and systematic sampling for analysis. The drill core samples were completely cut in half, with one half delivered to a commercial laboratory and the other half retained for future reference. Duplicates, blanks and standards were inserted into the sample sequence. Gold assays were 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.
