Beaufield Announces Results at the Opinaca (Eleonore) Project

Beaufield Resources Inc. (“Beaufield” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:BFD) announces results for its drilling program conducted on the Opinaca gold project in northwestern Quebec. The large 101 square kilometre property is centrally located in the new Eleonore gold camp where Goldcorp is developing a gold mine with a reported initial investment of $2 billion and scheduled to begin production in 2014. Beaufield’s property shares a 21 kilometre long boundary with Goldcorp and hosts similar geological formations to the Eleonore gold deposits.

The program completed 13 holes totalling 2321 metres and targeted a series of geochemical, geophysical, structural and geological anomalies.

Results are shown in Table 1 below and complete results for the Opinaca project are available here.

Hole OP-13-22 intersected several gold bearing tourmaline, quartz and arsenopyrite veins hosted in mafic volcanic rocks. Several thick semi-massive to massive pyrrhotite horizons occurs at the contact with a diorite intrusion with associated silver anomalies (see table 1).

Drilling in the northern portion of the property has located prospective geology for new discoveries. Hole OP-13-25 encountered monzonite (with porphyry of potassic felspar) intruding the same type of sedimentary rock which host the Eleonore deposit. Pegmatite dykes are also present. Finely disseminated chalcopyrite (about 1%) and associated with quartz veins occur in several intersections with significant widths of anomalous copper, silver and gold, indicative of porphyry-style mineralization.

Molybdenum showings located one kilometre northwest of this area also tend corroborate the porphyry-style mineralization. A recent grab sample from this area returned 1.29% Molybdenum.

Conclusion and Recommendations

The northern portion of the property shows features of porphyry-type mineralization. Such features include sericite alteration, locally very-fine veins in stockwerk, silver and copper anomalies. Previous work has also shown significant molybdenum mineralization (up to 12% Molybdenum) in the same area (press release of March 23rd, 2007). This porphyry intrusion (monzonite) is in contact with Eleonore-type sedimentary rocks and remains to be tested.

Beaufield’s technical team will be evaluating the results achieved to date and the new geology uncovered by the 2013 drill program. The Opinaca property is centrally located in what promises to be the next major gold mining camp in Canada.

Quality control/Quality Assurance (“QA/QC”)

Following guidelines of a rigorous QA/QC program, core samples totalling 275.7 metres were bagged, quality control samples (duplicate, blanks and standards) were systematically inserted in the sequence. Core processing included descriptive logging and systematic sampling for analysis. Every sampled interval was split in half with a core splitter. 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 commercial laboratory. 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.
