Under the terms of the Agreement, Bonterra can earn a 70% interest in the Property by issuing 4,000,000 common shares to Beaufield upon acceptance of the transaction by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), paying Beaufield a total of $750,000 in equal amounts over a three-year period ($250,000 upon acceptance of the transaction by the Exchange), and incurring a total of $4,500,000 in exploration expenditures on the Property over three years.

Upon completion of the Option, the parties will enter into a joint venture agreement on standard industry terms.

"We are pleased to partner with Bonterra on this portion of our Lac Rouleau claim block. Bonterra has demonstrated that they will aggressively advance the exploration of the area while we focus our attention on targets to the north, along the trend from Osisko Mining's Windfall deposit and drilling of the Lynx trend," commented Ron Stewart, President and CEO of Beaufield.

The Property is an assemblage of contiguous mineral claims located immediately adjacent to the northern boundaries of Bonterra's Urban Barry properties containing the Gladiator Deposit and extensions. This includes a narrow inset of claims that interrupt the western continuity of claims in the Gladiator region known as "The Gap". This land package also contains numerous gold showings with expansion potential including Lac Rouleau and Zone 18. The general geology is considered to be similar to that of the Gladiator area, with numerous occurrences of structurally controlled shear hosted vein mineralization on or near mafic volcanic contacts in proximity to both felsic and mafic intrusive units.

The transaction is subject to the acceptance of the Exchange, such acceptance to be sought forthwith.
