Richfield Identifies High Grade Gold at Blackwater, British Columbia
BW 87 Intersects 115 metres @ 2.59 g/t Au including 57 metres of 4.79
(“Richfield” or the “Company”) is pleased to report drill results for
four diamond drill holes on the 100% owned portion of its Blackwater
Gold Project approximately 100 km south of
Drilling is focused on testing the continuity and size of the bulk
tonnage gold system.
BW 87 is 163 metres southeast of the collar of BW 59 (361 metres of 1.25 g/t Au within 455 metres of 1.03 g/t Au - see NR

BW 85 was drilled 50 metres west of BW 87. BW 86 and BW 88 were drilled
along the south edge of the Richfield Zone (see maps on company
website). BW 88 returned anomalous gold grades.
Mineralization is dominated by fine grained pyrite and sphalerite
disseminated through variably hydrofractured and silicified lapilli
tuff and andesite-dacite. Sections with the strongest silicification
are generally more strongly mineralized than less silicified sections.
Visible gold occurs in the most strongly mineralized part of BW 87
about 135 m deep. It forms anhedral, equant grains about a millimeter
across in fracture fills and irregular veinlets.
our interpretation that higher grade near-surface gold occurs in at
least three broad zones of plus 1 g/t gold.”
Richfield is well-funded and logistically prepared to carry on drilling
with two rigs through the winter months. Holes will be targeted to
further explore and delineate the bulk gold deposit which is developing
at the Blackwater Gold Project.
Drill map, sections and strip logs for individual holes will be posted
on the company website today. All four holes were drilled vertically.

Widths reported are drill widths; true widths are unknown. Assays are
uncut, length-weighted average values.
Richfield has implemented a rigorous quality assurance/quality control
program at the Blackwater property using best industry practice and
custody of samples from drill to laboratory. Drill core is sawn in half
at the property and for each sample half of the core from one metre
intervals is placed in plastic bags and sealed. The remainder is
retained in core boxes stored at the project camp.
A standard sample, a blank sample, or a duplicate sample is inserted
into the sample stream every tenth sample. Five certified ore assay
laboratory standards are used in the program, and are supplied by CDN
Resource Laboratories Ltd., an independent laboratory located in
are shipped by bonded courier to Eco Tech Stewart Group Laboratories in
provider. Rejects selected at random are sent to Acme Labs of
(14.5 % of all 1534 samples) were analyzed. Richfield detected no
significant QA/QC issues during review of the data.
