Bayfield Ventures Drill Program to Begin on Rainy River Gold-Silver Project, NW Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/04/14 -- Bayfield Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE: BYV)(PINKSHEETS: BYVVF)(FRANKFURT: B4N) is pleased to announce its drilling plans for the Company's Rainy River gold-silver project in north-western Ontario. Bayfield's flagship Burns Block property is surrounded by New Gold's Rainy River project and adjoins the immediate east of New Gold's multi-million ounce ODM17 gold-silver deposit and adjoins the immediate west of New Gold's expanding Intrepid gold-silver deposit.

Bayfield anticipates its Rainy River drill program to start on the 15th of September.

Additional Discovery Potential on Burns Block Property:

Recommendations contained within the January 23, 2014 NI 43-101 Technical Report and Mineral Resource Estimate indicate the need for additional exploration drilling in the central portion of the Burns Block and additional delineation drilling on the Western Burns Zone and East Burns - Intrepid Zone of the property.

The majority of past drilling on the Burns Block has been concentrated on the western and eastern sides of the property. The central part of the property requires additional testing. The resources that have been identified cross the property boundaries onto the adjacent ground held by New Gold to the west and to the east.

Specific targets remain for additional discovery on the Burns Block. These targets have been grouped into four categories:


1.  Western Burns Zone: Additional drilling at depth on the Western Burns
    high grade zone would help fill in large holes in the model that have
    not been assigned a grade, due to a lack of data.

2.  East Burns - Intrepid Zone: Approximately 170 metres of plan view strike
    length extension potential of the southwest plunging East Burns -
    Intrepid high grade shoot remains untested along the southeast to south-
    central portion of the Burns Block. The down plunge length of this
    target is in excess of 220 metres. This down plunge extension has no
    drilling into the targeted high grade Intrepid Shoot.

3.  Central Burns Block Main Zone: Several holes collared in the sparsely
    drilled central portion of the Burns Block property have intersected 5
    to 15 metre wide zones of low grade to gram level gold mineralization
    hosted within the sheared, foliated quartz porphyry dacite. These
    intersections have not been followed up and present the potential of
    being associated with additional undiscovered shoots of higher grade
    mineralization.

4.  Mineralized zones in both the hanging wall and footwall of the Main
    Zone: Completed drilling clearly shows the presence of multi-gram gold
    and silver mineralization in positions above and below the Main Zone.
    Several wide, significant mineralized zones lying below the Main Zone
    have been intersected but remain completely open due to lack of
    drilling. These targets are concentrated in the under explored central
    portion of the property. The presence of multiple mineralized horizons
    located above and below the robust Intrepid Shoot has been previously
    described by Rainy River Resources following delineation drilling of the
    shallow portion of the Intrepid immediately to the east of the Burns
    Block.

Additional Discovery Potential on "B" Block Property:

Recommendations contained within the February 14, 2013 NI 43-101 Technical Report indicate the need for additional exploration drilling on Bayfield's "B" Block property.

The mine trend rock package is sharply deflected to the NNE along the western margin of the Black Hawk Stock. Logging results from diamond drill holes completed by Bayfield on the "B" Block confirm the presence of iron formations, argillite units and the well foliated and strongly sericite altered quartz porphyry dacite intrusive rocks rock package that hosts high grade and disseminated gold and silver mineralization at the "B" and Burns Block properties, as well hosting the bulk of the identified mineralization on New Gold's properties.

Rainy River Geological Map of the Burns Block and "B" Block:

http://www.bayfieldventures.com/i/maps/RRDGeo_BurnsAndBBlock.jpg

Bayfield has discovered relatively narrow zones of multi-gram gold-silver mineralization over a large portion of the southern and central portions of the 480 acre "B" Block property. These well mineralized intervals occur within wide envelopes of lower grade mineralization and are mineralogically and texturally very similar to the mineralized zones at the Burns Block property.

The interpreted high potential for additional gold-silver discoveries at the "B" Block are from encouraging results in completed drilling as well the close proximity of the "B" Block to both the near surface portion of New Gold's Intrepid Zone and to the Burns Block property. "B" Block drilling has been shallow and the property is essentially unexplored below 250 metres from surface. The combination of very favourable geology and the known presence of gold-silver-copper-zinc mineralization make the "B" Block a very high quality target area for further discoveries through detailed exploration.

For additional information on the "B" Block Technical Report please refer to the full report posted on Bayfield's web site and filed on SEDAR, www.sedar.com, dated February 14, 2013 and titled: "B" BLOCK NATIONAL INSTRUMENT 43-101 COMPLIANT TECHNICAL REPORT.
