MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Sep 12, 2013) - Beaufield Resources Inc. ("Beaufield") (TSX VENTURE:BFD) is pleased to announce assay results for its first three drill holes totaling 684 metres on its 100% owned Urban gold property. The drill holes were collared approximately 500 metres northeast of Bonterra Resources Rivage Zone showing.
All three of Beaufield drill holes intercepted numerous zones of anomalous gold over varying widths indicating the presence of gold over a widespread area. Highlights of the drill results are shown in the table below.

Beaufield's drilling program at Urban is currently ongoing with four additional holes having been collared on the zone 18 area where historical drill holes in this area had returned several excellent gold intercepts. Assays are pending.
The Urban gold project consists of 173 claims covering 7,085 hectares located in the Urban-Barry Archean greenstone belt, 190 km NE of Val-d'Or, Quebec.
The Company applies a full quality assurance and quality control program (QAQC) system for every batch of samples submitted to the lab (gold standard, field sample duplicate and blank). Core processing included descriptive logging and systematic sampling for analysis. Every sampled interval was split in half with a core splitter. Half of any sampled core was left in the core box for future reference and the remaining half was bagged and sealed and sent to commercial laboratory. Assays are performed at ALS CHEMEX Laboratories in Val d'Or, Quebec. The processed samples were submitted to a standard Fire Assay with AA technique (Au-AA-23) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Emission Spectroscopy (ME-ICP-41) on a 30 gram sub-sample.
At the conclusion of the current drilling program, Beaufield's technical team will closely study the results achieved and will be determining what future work will be required on the Urban property. The Urban area is the focus of increased gold exploration activity by Beaufield and its neighbours which are developing properties that adjoin Beaufield. Metanor Resources Inc. is operating the Barry mine and Eagle Hill Exploration Corp. has just announced a significant corporate development. Beaufield is adequately financed to undertake all of its ongoing and planned exploration.
