Beaufield Resources Inc. ("Beaufield") is pleased to provide a progress report of its drill program on its 12,915 hectare, Urban property. To date, 1,169 metres has been completed during the first half June on the Macho block, including the follow-up on the Lucky 7 zone where drill hole BU-15-07 had intersected 7.86 g/t Au over 6 metres near surface (BFD news release, December 8th, 2015).
Drill core samples from the program have been sent to ALS Laboratories in Val d'Or to be assayed. A portion of the samples from the new holes contains sulfide mineralization similar to hole BU-15-07 and is to be assayed on "a rush" basis. The drill is on site to continue drilling. The mineralization coincides with a 1,400 metre long strong induced polarization (IP) anomaly identified in 2015.
Beaufield plans an expansion of exploration and drilling on its key Urban holdings. These plans are to be announced next week.
Beaufield's flagship Urban property is centrally located within the Urban-Barry camp, on prime ground and near infrastructure and is easily accessible by road. The Urban area one of the most active gold exploration camps in Quebec with many companies operating in the area including Osisko Mining (previously Oban), Bonterra Resources, Urbana Corporation and Metanor Resources. Please refer to Beaufield's website for a map indicating the principal stakeholders for the Urban region.
