Quality Assurance

Richfield has implemented a rigorous quality assurance/quality control program at the Blackwater property using best industry practice and supervised by Dirk Tempelman-Kluit. The program includes chain of 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 Langley, BC. Samples including the blanks, standards and duplicates, are shipped by bonded courier to Eco Tech Stewart Group Laboratories in Kamloops, BC, an internationally recognized analytical services provider. Rejects selected at random are sent to Acme Labs of Vancouver, BC for check assays. In total 334 quality control samples (14.2 % of all 2351 samples) were analyzed. Richfield detected no significant QA/QC issues during review of the data.

The scientific and technical information contained in this news release was prepared under the supervision of Dirk Tempelman-Kluit Ph.D, FGAC, VP Exploration for Richfield Ventures Corp, and has been reviewed by Rob Pease P.Geo., who is a "Qualified Person" as defined under National Instrument 43-101.
