Drilling Commences at Beaufield’s Rouleau Gold Zone Urban Property

Beaufield Resources Inc. ("Beaufield") is pleased to announce that drilling has begun on the historical Rouleau Gold Zone at its 100% owned Urban property, Quebec. The present program consists of approximately 1,500 metres of diamond drilling and will focus on a 500 metre portion of the Rouleau Gold Zone where near surface data is limited.

A newly updated geological model of the Rouleau Gold Zone has been compiled by Geologica Groupe Conseil of Val d'Or and has been instrumental in the planning of the current drill program. An initial interpretation of the model suggests that the system could extend over at least 900 metres and it remains open along strike and at depth.

The holes listed in the table below represent a portion of historical intersections on the Rouleau Gold Zone. These have been reported in historical news releases by Beaufield. A review of select historical drill hole core, including relogging and a sampling will also occur over the next month.

Continued drilling is planned to follow integration of the current program results into the model. In addition to the Rouleau Gold Zone, several exploration targets, including the newly identified Golden Retriever Zone which adjoins, Osisko's Black Dog Zone are also planned to be drilled this winter.

The Urban Township has been the focus of sporadic gold exploration over a number of years with current exploration activity accelerating. The centrally located holdings were originally acquired in 1987 based on numerous gold occurrences and favorable geology. The Beaufield ground is underexplored with many targets to be explored.
