MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Jan. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brookfield Resources Inc. (OTCQB:BFLD) has commenced preparation and exploration on their claims in the Cobequid Highlands. The Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources (NSDNR) commenced a renewed research program in the Cobequid Highlands as a follow up to a late 1980's stream sediment sampling program. Recent work has been processing and the NSDNR has announced two major mineralization discoveries: Rare Earth Elements (REE's) in 2010 and Gold (Au) in October 2011.
The REE's, as described by the NSDNR are enriched dykes and pegmatites as part of the area's granite. The initial mineralogy work by NSDNR has identified that REE mineralization is not locked up in the zirconium, and is enriched in the rarer more valuable rare earths: the Heavy Rare Earth Elements (HREE's).
The planned initial work program during the first and second phase would include an airborne geophysical survey, rock sampling combined with geological mapping, a full detailed stream sediment sampling program, with a follow-up soil/till sampling and a ground geophysical suite. The goal would be to identify target areas that would be the phase three focus and would include trenching in preparation for phase four: diamond drilling.About Brookfield Resources Inc. The Company is a Nevada based corporation that will focus its attention on mining exploration opportunities in Nova Scotia Canada specifically for the exploration of Rare Earth Elements. Along with establishing a working team we have acquired specific land related to the research that has been completed, signaling preferred areas for rare earth minerals. Our goal is to increase our portfolio of land in this area and continue exploration until targets have been established.
