Richfield mobilizes drill to Mouse Mountain - Quesnel Trough target

    QUESNEL, BC, Oct. 29 /CNW/ - Richfield Ventures Corp. (TSX-V: RVC) is
pleased to announce that a diamond drill has been mobilized to its 100% owned
Mouse Mountain Property near Quesnel in central British Columbia, Canada.
    Three holes are planned for a total of 1500 meters to test targets near
the Rainbow zone, where earlier drilling encountered erratic high grade
copper-gold mineralization within a lower grade envelope. The first hole will
test the northwest extension of a chargeability anomaly; it is on trend with,
and 350 m northwest of the Rainbow showing. A second drill hole, north of the
Rainbow zone, will test a discrete magnetic target where airborne radiometric
potassium/thorium ratios are high. The third drill hole aims for the heart of
the Mouse Mountain intrusion. IP chargeability and resistivity anomalies are
strongest here on the flank of the Mouse Mountain magnetic high and beneath a
zone with high airborne radiometric potassium and low thorium. This hole is
200 m south of the Rainbow zone.
    The three hole plan was decided by Richfield management with strong
participation from Richfield's technical advisory team. Richfield anticipates
that the three holes will be completed in two weeks.
    Mouse Mountain continues to be Richfield Ventures' priority target; it is
in the heart of the Quesnel Trough, on trend with producing mines (Mt Polley,
QR). Erratic high grade copper-gold mineralization occurs within a lower grade
envelope in the right rocks, with strong alteration. Infrastructure is
    Earlier this year Richfield completed 15 drill holes (5544m) of phase 1
drilling at Mouse Mountain (see news release May 16, 2008).
