Richfield Extends Blackwater Southward with BW 97
(“Richfield” or the “Company”) is pleased to report drill results for
five diamond drill holes on the Blackwater Gold Project approximately
100 km south of
The five holes are collared over a distance about 1000 metres west to
east on the 100% owned part of the Blackwater Gold Project. All holes
returned anomalous gold values to depths in excess of 300 metres. Holes
are targeted to explore and delineate the bulk gold deposit developing
at the Blackwater Gold Project.

BW 97 returned good gold values from surface to about 200 metres deep,
with scattered gold mineralization deeper in the hole. BW 97 is south
of mineralization known to date and extends the mineralized zone
southwest. It leaves open possibility of further extension.
BW 93 and 94 are 50 m apart and about 150 metres west of BW 97. Both
holes returned gold in narrow ore grade intervals over much of their
depth, but both are less strongly mineralized than elsewhere. The holes
define lower grade mineralization within the larger mineralized zone.
BW 95, southwest of the mineralized zone, returned mineralized
intersections between 100 and 240 metres deep. As with BW 53, an
earlier hole drilled in this area, it suggests mineralization may
weaken in this direction.
BW 96 is north of known mineralization in the Jarrit claim. Between 220
and 340 m deep gold values are anomalous; the rocks are strongly
silicified reflecting the alteration associated with the Blackwater
metres of near 1 g/t material in BW 97. It extends the zone southward
and leaves space for expansion there. These latest five drill holes
show that we continue drilling within the gold system.”
Upon completion of BW 115 and 116 in mid-December, Richfield will be
breaking for the holidays until late January. Results for the remaining
19 holes will be released as they are received.
Drill map, sections and strip logs for individual holes reported herein
will be posted on the company website.

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. Three 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
(12.8 % of all 1918 samples) were analyzed. Richfield detected no
significant QA/QC issues during review of the data.
