Beaufield Resources Inc. ("Beaufield") is pleased to announce that they have mobilized a diamond drill to its Urban property and a second contract has been awarded for another drill rig to be added to the area.
The first drill will focus on targets on the Macho block and on the adjoining Urbana property (see March 4th News Release for details).
The second drill will be mobilized to the Rouleau block area to concentrate on geophysical targets and potential extensions of mineralization identified at surface. Several gold and copper mineralized structures are known to exist on the property, including the historical Lac Rouleau Zone 18 gold discovery and the Quesnel occurrence. Eight holes will target strong induced polarization anomalies located in the southern portion of the block. Two other holes will target the potentially mineralized geological structures that have been interpreted from a recently completed magnetic survey.
Additional drilling is planned for the Zone 18 later in the summer.
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 is 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.
