Beaufield Resources Signs Drilling Contract with Chibougamau Diamond Drilling

Beaufield Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BFD) has announced the signing of a 10,000 metre drill contract with Chibougamau Diamond Drilling Ltd. Drilling will focus on definition drilling to better understand the true dimensions of the Tortigny copper-zinc-silver-gold deposit which was previously drilled in the 1990s (by a previous operator). The 100%-owned Beaufield property is located on an all- access road 100 kilometres north of Chibougamau, Quebec.

Hole T0-10-19 (released Sept. 30, 2010) was drilled down the hinge of the deposit, which was interpreted in the 1990's to be a folded "V" shaped body. Given the high grade intersections encountered in hole T0-10-19, Beaufield considers there to be excellent potential to expand the resource and to locate extensions. Exploration work will also be conducted to locate new deposits in the vicinity of Tortigny and Moleon deposits. Massive sulphides of this nature frequently occur in clusters.

Several intervals over the 322 m intersection in T0-10-19 contain zones of polymetallic, high grade mineralization in sections not previously drilled and therefore warrant further investigation. The intercepts listed below are repeats from news release dated September 30, 2010.

On a total metal content basis, the grades indicated above are among the highest encountered in Quebec and at today's metal prices represent a significant gross value per tonne. The drilling is planned for mid November 2010.

This press release was prepared by Jens E. Hansen P. Eng, President of Beaufield Resources Inc., the Qualified Person under section 43-101.
