OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(Feb. 22, 2008) – Beaufield Resources Inc., (TSX VENTURE:BFD), A 3,411 metre diamond drill program was completed on the 100% owned historical Tortigny base metal deposit (copper, zinc, silver and gold) The Tortigny deposit previously drilled by Noranda has not been the subject of a 43-101 report nor has the previous drilling been examined by a Beaufield geologist nor an independent Qualified Person (NR January 22, 2008). Tortigny has all weather road access and is located 100 kilometres north of Chibougamau, Qu,bec. Samples were deposited at the laboratory for assay on February 9th and assay results are expected in 5 to 8 weeks.
The objective of the drilling was to define and expand the existing resource. Six diamond drill holes (2,610 metres) were conducted with the intention of increasing the known mineralization and two holes (801 metres) were drilled to obtain a better definition of the deposit.
Some mineralization was observed in varying widths in 7 of the 8 holes. In hole TO-08-05, 14 metres of massive sulphides, within the existing deposit, were intersected. No reliable estimate of grade can be made from a visual observation. The drill program was supervised and logged by David Rivard P. Geo.
