Anfield Resources Completes Geophysical Survey for BCQ Copper Project02 Jun 2014
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–June 2, 2014–Anfield Resources Inc. (TSX.V: ARY)(OTCQB: ANLDF) (“Anfield” or “the Company”) is pleased to report on the findings from the recently completed geophysical survey conducted on portions of the Binghampton /Copper Queen (BCQ) copper project. The purpose of the Controlled Source Audio Magnetotellurics/Magnetotellurics (CSAMT/MT) survey is to map structure and possible mineral occurrences on portions of the BCQ project to further aid the Company in locating the next drill locations for the upcoming drill campaign.
The overall quality of the CSAMT/MT data is considered good to very good. Both the 2013 and 2014 surveys have proven valuable, but due to the vastness of the BCQ project it is not possible to correlate the results. An additional geophysical survey is required and is currently being planned. Correlating the data is a top priority; therefore, the survey is scheduled to begin next week. The survey was focused on the Binghampton and Half Moon mines, where past production has occurred.
Corey Dias, Anfield’s CEO, stated, “The results of the survey are very encouraging, and we are looking forward to getting back to drilling at BCQ. Through both the acquisition of historical data and the recent completion of geophysical surveys, we have begun to identify several drill targets for the upcoming drill campaign. Furthermore, with the additionally-planned survey we will be able to better correlate the 2013 and 2014 results and create an even more comprehensive drilling program.”
The Binghampton survey, consisting of one line of approximately 1000 feet (305 metres) with a 100 foot (30 metre) station spacing, identified 3 areas of interest:
- the first area, a zone of lower resistivities, is apparent across the entire line from surface to depths around 100 feet (30 metres). This area is indicative of a weathered zone with increased clay content or oxide mineralization;
- the second area, positioned beneath the near-surface low resistivities, is a somewhat continuous zone of higher resistivities from depths of about 400 to 700 feet (122 to 213 metres); and
- the third area, positioned beneath the higher resistivities, is a zone of much lower resistivities that extend from depths of about 900 to 1300 feet (274 to 396 metres) and extend deeper from 1,250 to 1,650 feet (381 to 503 metres) towards the end of the line.
In August of 2013, two lines were surveyed on ridges associated with previous mining of the Binghampton but these surveys occurred 2,500 feet (762 metres) and 1,950 feet (594 metres) from the current survey. Because of the relatively large distance between the lines surveyed, it is not possible to correlate the results from the two separate surveys.
Half Moon Survey
The Half Moon survey consisted of one line of approximately 1000 feet (305 metres) with a 100 foot (30 metre) station spacing. Lower resistivities (i.e., more conductive areas) are present from the surface to depths approaching about 600 feet (183 m) through all but the middle 150 feet (50 metres) of the line. Proximate to the middle of the line there is a zone of higher resistivity material that extends to a depth of between 600 and 1,100 feet (183 and 335 metres). One possible explanation for the higher resistivities near the middle of the line is the historic observation that the Half Moon mineralization is discontinuous. Additional lines of CSAMT/MT data will be required to determine the continuity of anomalous areas with both lower and higher resistivities, which may be indicative of mineralization and/or the structures influencing mineralization.

Anfield is a publicly traded corporation listed on the TSX-Venture Exchange (ARY-V) and is engaged in mineral exploration, development and production in the United States and Chile. Its focus is on acquiring and developing an array of strategic mineral projects, which are summarized below:
- Anfield’s uranium assets include mining claims and state leases in southeastern Utah, Colorado and Arizona totaling over 17,500 acres (7,082 hectares), targeting areas where past uranium mining or prospecting occurred within a potential shipping radius to the White Mesa Mill, the only operating conventional uranium mill in the US.
- The Binghampton Copper Queen (BCQ) project, located 17 miles (27 km) southeast of Prescott, Arizona, and within the Arizona VMS Belt, consists of 5,021 acres (2,032 hectares) of both patented and State land, with two past-producing mines on the property.
- The North Star Copper Project, located less than 50 miles (80 km) northwest of Tucson, consisting of 200 mining claims covering approximately 4,000 acres (1,619 hectares), targets relatively shallow oxide copper at the historic North Star site in the heart of copper country in southern Arizona.
The Aura Project, a nascent copper production operation in Atacama, Chile, is located 20 miles (32 km) east of Copiapo and consists of eight mining concessions totaling over 2,800 acres (1,133 hectares) in one of the foremost copper producing regions in the world.
