Beaufield Resources Completes Field Work at Schefferville Iron Property

Beaufield Resources has completed a month’s field work at the Schefferville iron property in Quebec. It has collected 700 grab-chip samples in total and these samples are being sent for analyzing the iron content. Beaufield crews analyzed and defined the 356 outcrop sites at the property.

The initial phase of the follow-up on ground gravity and airborne anomalies connected with a small magnetic response was the sampling survey. The target areas are situated in the Sokoman iron structure.

The Beaufield property includes 883 claims that enclose 431.9 sq. km in the middle part of the iron district. It is contiguous to and enclosed by the Century Iron Mines, Champion Minerals, Labrador Iron Mines, New Millennium Iron and Tata Steel Minerals.

Several neighbours have reported about the production of imminent iron ore from the deposits, which are situated near Beaufield. The field campaign found roads that were built previously by the Iron Ore Company of Canada, which reach most of the Beaufield’s property. Good access is the ultimate advancement. The location of Schefferville property is less than 10 km from the border of the Beaufield's property.

The company has discovered Direct Shipping Ore (DSO) mineralization in at least five different regions. This DSO horizon was found at a location for over a kilometre. The airborne gravity gradient survey of the company proposes mineralization continuity at several sites.

The company commenced an individual SEDEX zinc program at the property’s north-west part that is nearby Leroy Lake. A lake bottom geochemical survey conducted by the Quebec government has found a sequence of extreme values of anomalous zinc. In order to help in the source determination of the zinc anomalies, 741 "B" horizon soil samples were collected over 25 m intervals.

Beaufield will continue field work at the Schefferville property during mid August.
