Beaufield Resources Inc. has map staked an additional 14 claims representing 763 hectares on the Tortigny project located 100 kilometres northwest of Chibougamau, Quebec.
The 100% owned Beaufield project consists of one large block surrounding the Tortigny Copper-Zinc-Silver-Gold deposit and a number of smaller blocks on the Troilus-Frotet mineral belt.
Beaufield has recently completed a 10 hole drilling program totaling 2,203 metres on the property including 1,010 metres in the deposit area. Two holes were drilled in the north limb of the Tortigny deposit to explore a portion of the Tortigny structure not previously drilled. The result from these holes is planned for reporting next week.
The Tortigny deposit was the subject of an independent National Instrument ("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. An updated 43-101 resource calculation is scheduled for completion in three months (news release February 3, 2014).
In addition to the two holes to be reported from Tortigny, eight regional holes were drilled for exploration and assessment purposes. Four holes were drilled on electromagnetic anomalies west of the Tortigny property. Three holes were drilled on electromagnetic anomalies 50 kilometres north east and one hole approximately 5 kilometres south east of Tortigny. Several of these encountered massive sulphides with anomalous, but insignificant metal values.
