Beaufield Resources Inc. (“Beaufield”) announces that it has commenced its summer exploration program at its 100% owned Urban properties, in Quebec. The properties cover 8,160 hectares (81.6 square kilometres) in Urban Township 120 km northeast of Val d’Or and consist of three blocks, Macho, Rouleau and Lac Kent. Beaufield’s properties adjoin Eagle Hill Exploration and Metanor Resources properties. Both neighboring companies are very active in Urban.
A geological team is currently performing surface exploration work on the Macho block of claims, an area that has not been explored since the 1990s. Numerous historical gold showings occur in this area, including a historical channel sample of 6.6 g/t gold over a length of 17.0 metres. Grab samples of up to 88.2 g/t and 29.48 g/t gold have been historically reported. The Corporation geologist will also visit other parts of the property to locate additional outcrops and determine what other work might need to be done. Development of the currently explored adjoining properties may influence exploration on Beaufield’s Macho block.
Following the current field program resulting assays and property visit, an exploration program will be prepared. To date, the Macho block has received only limited exploration attention despite activity in the area by others.
This news release has been prepared by Jens E. Hansen, Eng., CEO, President and director of Beaufield, and Mathieu Stephens, P. Geo, the Qualified Persons, as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
