Beaufield Resources Completes 22 Holes at Schefferville Property

Beaufield Resources has completed drilling of 2,141 m, totaling 22 holes, at the Schefferville property, which is located in North Quebec. The target areas include many individual geophysical anomalies and also regions, where historical Iron Ore Company of Canada (IOCC) holes returned high-grade iron.

The company specifically drilled hole Sc-12-01 in the property’s southern part that focused on the southern expansion of the Wollett direct shipping ore (DSO) deposit, where high-grade iron was encountered in previous IOCC drill holes. The formation containing iron expands to a number of kilometers into the company’s ground. Holes from Sc-12-02 to Sc-12-11 concentrated on huge geophysical anomalies that were analyzed as the MacDonald DSO deposit’s expansions, enclosed by Beaufield claims.

The Sokoman iron formation was encountered in the company’s eight drill holes and hosts the Schefferville iron deposits. Highly oxidized iron, limonite and goethite, enriched iron showing the occurrence of DSO iron were intersected in many drill holes.

Condor Consulting and Jean Hubert discovered DSO target areas in the property’s northern part through an aerial gradient gravity survey. Those anomalies were tested by 11 drill holes. Sokoman iron formation along with enriched iron was intercepted in all the holes. Ontario-based SGS Minerals performed the assays.

The company’s 100% owned Schefferville property expands from Schefferville town located in a north-western course for 50 km and encloses 38,370 ha. The property houses an extensive part of the Sokoman Geological iron formations.

The company believes that this phase I drill program is enough to plan for future drill campaigns. Geology and assay results will be compiled, analyzed and utilized to plan for a phase II drill program to distinguish and prioritize the potential target areas.
