Beaufield Resources Inc. ("Beaufield") is pleased to announce that a drill contract has been awarded and permits have been received for its upcoming 2016 drilling program on its Urban property, Quebec. Forage Orbit Garant Inc. of Val d'Or has been chosen after a review of several drill company bids to undertake the diamond drill program.
The initial program will focus on two areas of the Urban Macho project. In the Lucky 7 area, a series of holes are designed to test the potential extension of mineralization along strike and at depth of a new gold zone (7.86 g/t Au over 6 metres) discovered during a fall drilling program (BFD news release, December 8th, 2015).
The second target area consist of a high priority geophysical anomaly identified last year by a deep penetrating induced polarization and magnetic survey that could not be accessed during the recently completed fall program.
The drill program, scheduled to begin later next week, Beaufield will also manage drilling for Urbana Corporation's (TSX:URB)(TSX:URB.A)(CSE:URB)(CSE:URB.A) recently announced drill program. Working with Urbana will reduce reducing costs for both parties and improve geological knowledge of the key Macho property.
Beaufield's 100% owned 12,357 hectares Urban property is centrally located within the Urban-Barry camp, near infrastructure and is easily accessible by road. The Urban area is an active area with many companies operating in the area including Oban Mining, Bonterra Resources, Urbana Corporation and Metanor Resources. Please refer to Beaufield's website for a map indicating the principal stakeholders for the Urban region.
Beaufield will be attending the Prospectors and Developers Conference (PDAC) in Toronto from March 6th to March 9th, 2016 at booth #2903. We welcome visitors to come meet management and learn more about Beaufield's exploration project in Urban.
