OTTAWA, ONTARIO – Beaufield Resources Inc. is pleased to announce the start of a VTEM helicopter-borne electromagnetic and magnetic survey of its 100% owned Raglan property on the Ungava nickel belt.
The Beaufield property covers 57 claims located on the Raglan horizon five kilometres due east of Xstrata’s Donaldson nickel mine and 10 kilometres north of the Canadian Royalties nickel deposits. The nickel-copper-PGM deposits currently being mined by Xstrata are located near the base of peridotite-pyroxinite-gabbro complexes. These complexes have a distinctive magnetic signature. The Raglan nickel-copper deposits are conductive and can typically be detected by electromagnetics.
A map showing the location of the Beaufield Raglan property is available at the following address: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/BFD_RAGLAN_PROPERTY_2008.pdf
In addition to the Raglan work, Beaufield currently has field crews on its Opinaca, Opinaca West and Troilus properties. Additional news concerning this work will be described in a subsequent news release.
This news release was prepared by Jens E. Hansen, Eng., Director and President of Beaufield, the Qualified Person under section 43-101.
