Beaufield Resources Inc. is pleased to provide its Urban-Windfall district exploration plans. New drill permits have been received and drilling is scheduled to resume in January 2017.
The Urban property is to remain the principal focus of the corporation's exploration activities for 2017. Centrally located within the Urban-Windfall area, the property consists primarily of 3 blocks of claims originally acquired in 1987 when access and infrastructure were non-existent at the time. The 100% owned, 12,735 hectare property host a number of important gold occurrences and excellent geology, and is easily accessible by road year round.
A review of the property's historical data, including geology, geophysics and drilling has indicated a number of important targets on the large property. The four areas of interest below will be the main focus of the company's 2017 exploration and drilling work.
Rouleau Gold Zone
12 shallow holes have been completed in December 2016 with results expected for the second week of January. A systematic deeper drill program of up to 6,000 metres is planned for the next phase.
Golden Retriever Area
A 3,000 metre drill program is scheduled to begin in January 2017. The target zone is adjacent and on strike with Osisko Mining's Black Dog property which hosts significant gold mineralization and is presently being drilled.
The Panache Zone is interpreted as the geological continuation of Osisko's new Fox gold discovery located 1,300 metres east of Beaufield's boundary. A 2,500 metre drill program is planned to test for gold mineralization at greater depth along this feature.
The ET structure is an untested magnetic feature similar to Osisko's Caribou Zone located less than 2 kilometres to the northwest.
