Beaufield Resources Inc. ("Beaufield" or the "Corporation") has retained Micon International Limited ("Micon") to provide an independent technical report, in compliance with the requirements of National Instrument ("NI") 43-101, on its 100% owned Tortigny deposit.
The high grade polymetallic (copper-zinc-silver-gold) Tortigny deposit is located on an all weather road approximately 100 km northwest of the town of Chibougamau, Quebec.
Beaufield has recently completed a 10 hole drilling program totaling 2,203 metres on the property including 1,010 metres in the deposit area for which data is being processed. The drill data is intended to verify and extend a portion of the high grade deposit (news release of December 4, 2013).
The Tortigny deposit was the subject of an independent NI 43-101 resource calculation which was filed on Sedar on January 11, 2013. Based on the calculation the deposit contains total measured and indicated resources of 845,000 tonnes grading 2.01% Copper, 4.29% Zinc, 55.29 g/t Silver and 0.39 g/t Gold.
Micon will review and audit the existing data from the previous drill programs, geophysical data and geological maps and sections in order to prepare a block model that will be used to update the mineral resource estimate. In addition to the resource calculation, Micon will present Beaufield with recommendations concerning the geological and structural settings to guide continuing exploration.
Geological evidence indicates that the mineralization at Tortigny, or a portion thereof, has been remobilized from its original source suggesting that additional significant mineralization could be present in the vicinity. An example of this model is the deposits at the Louvicourt deposits close to Val d'Or, Quebec.
Beaufield plans to focus its 2014 exploration at Tortigny and is well funded to undertake the work.
This news release has been prepared by Jens E. Hansen, Eng., CEO, President and director of Beaufield, the Qualified Persons, as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
