Anfield Resources Inc. Acquires Additional Uranium Assets in the U.S.

- Continues its strategy of acquiring assets with near term cash flow potential

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- Anfield Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ARY) ("Anfield" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it is continuing its strategic investment in uranium assets by acquiring 51 unpatented mining claims in six mining claim groups on federal land in Utah. Anfield acquired the claims by making claim locations on the ground pursuant to federal and state laws governing mineral locations. This acquisition includes claim groups in three past-producing uranium mining districts that were not previously represented in Company's uranium asset portfolio. It also includes one claim group that bolsters the Company's current holdings within the White Canyon Area.

Anfield now has access to mineral rights on over 11,000 acres in Utah in districts where the combined historical uranium production totals approximately 28 million pounds. At least one uranium prospect or past-producing uranium mine has been identified within each acquired claim group. These newly-located claims range from between 35 and 115 miles of the White Mesa mill - the only operating conventional uranium mill in the US - whose proximity would facilitate the Company's aim of toll-milling its ore in order to accelerate near-term revenue and cash-flow generation.

"We are pleased to have been able to expand our uranium claim portfolio via these acquisitions," stated Corey Dias, CEO of Anfield. " Moreover, we believe that the continued diversification of our claim portfolio will improve our ability to develop a sustainable source of uranium ore in aggregate. Finally, the recent positive news coming out of Japan with regard to the government's Basic Energy Plan - which makes a commitment to nuclear power as a core part of Japan's energy mix - reinforces our view that the uranium market not only remains undervalued but also has significant upside potential".

Below is a summary of the acquired uranium assets:

Thompson District

The acquisition includes two claim groups consisting of 26 individual claims situated in the Thompson District in Grand County, Utah. Although total production in the district is unknown, it is reported that 45 historic mines operated in the district at an average grade of 0.4% U3O8. The Thompson District is home to such past producers as the Yellow Cat, Little Eva, Little Pittsburgh, Cactus Rat, Parco, and Ringtail mines.

Green River District

The acquisition includes one claim group consisting of six individual claims situated in the Green River District in Emery County, Utah, and is complementary to one State Lease previously secured by Anfield. Total past production in this area is estimated at 600,000 tons of mined material at an average grade of 0.24% U3O8. 28 historically producing mines have operated in the Green River District. The claim group is also located within two miles of the property boundary of Energy Fuels Inc.'s San Rafael Project, which in 2011 reported an indicated mineral resource of 3,404,600 lbs U3O8 at an average grade of 0.225% U308, and 4,595,600 lbs V2O5 at an average grade of 0.30% V2O5, and an inferred mineral resource of 1,859,600 lbs U3O8 at an average grade of 0.205% U3O8, and 2,510,600 lbs V2O5 at an average grade of 0.28% V2O5.

White Canyon Area

The acquisition includes one additional claim group consisting of 12 individual claims situated in the White Canyon Area in western San Juan County, Utah. This is complementary to the fourteen claim groups consisting of 53 claims Anfield previously acquired in the Area. The White Canyon Area is estimated to have produced more than 11,000,000 lbs U3O8, with an average grade of 0.24% U3O8. The Area is also home to Energy Fuels' Daneros Project, a current/recent Uranium producer, as well as the historically-producing Happy Jack mine. Of note, there are more than 100 known uranium deposits in the White Canyon District.

San Rafael District

The acquisition includes two claim groups consisting of 7 individual claims situated in the San Rafael District in Emery County, Utah. Total past production in this area is estimated at 300,000 tons of mined material at an average grade of 0.22% U3O8. 32 historically producing mines have operated in the San Rafael District.

Production figures in this news release are as reported in Gloyn, R.W. et al, Mineral, Energy, and Groundwater Resources of San Juan County, Utah, Utah Geological Survey (1995) and Utah Geological and Mineral Survey Open File Report 18, Uranium-Vanadium Occurrences of Utah (1974).

About Anfield Resources Inc.

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:

The Binghampton Copper Queen (BCQ) project, located 27 kms southeast of Prescott, Arizona, and within the Arizona VMS Belt, consists of 2,032 hectares of both patented and State land. The two past-producing copper mines on the property - Binghampton and Copper Queen - are separated by a mile-wide valley. According to the Arizona Geological Survey, Binghampton produced approximately 8Mlbs of copper at an average grade of 3.1% prior to its closing in the 1920s, while Copper Queen produced less than 100Klbs. Anfield recently signed a Purchase Agreement ("the Agreement"), subject to due diligence, with Blue Zen Memorial Parks ("BZM") to jointly advance BCQ.

The North Star Copper Project, located less than 50 miles northwest of Tucson, targets relatively shallow oxide copper at the historic North Star site in the heart of copper country in southern Arizona. The Project consists of 200 mining claims covering approximately 4,000 acres, and has been permitted to conduct exploration drilling at 16 sites.

The Aura Project, 20 miles east of Copiapo, is a nascent copper production operation in Atacama, Chile, one of world's foremost copper producing regions. Aura consists of eight land concessions totalling over 2,800 acres. From these concessions, copper-mineralized material at the Project is mined and stockpiled for shipment to the Enami Processing facility, a government mining agency whose sole mandate is to facilitate the operations of small and medium-sized mining companies.

Anfield's Uranium assets include 290 mining claims and nine state leases on over 11,000 acres in southeastern Utah, and 24 mining claims in Arizona. The mining claims are located in historical uranium producing regions, targeting areas where past uranium mining or prospecting occurred. The claims are within a 115-mile radius of the White Mesa mill, the only operating conventional uranium mill in the US, which potentially provides Anfield with an opportunity to toll mill its uranium ore.
