TORONTO, ONTARIO, Apr. 26, 2010 (Marketwire) -- Seafield Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SFF) ("Seafield" or the "Company") reports that the Colombian Ministry of the Environment, Housing and Territorial Development has requested Greystar Resources Ltd. file a new environmental impact assessment relating to the development of its Angostura gold-silver mine, to conform to law No. 1382 of 2010. The law reforms the existing mining code and prohibits mining and exploration activity in the Paramo ecosystem. Paramo is an ecosystem above 3,200 metres in elevation consisting of glacier-formed valleys and plains with lakes, peat bogs, and wet and dry grasslands intermingled with shrub lands and forest patches.
Seafield's exploration projects in the Quinchia district are all at elevations well below the Paramo ecosystem, with the highest elevation on the Quinchia properties being 2,000 metres. The Company is continuing to advance its exploration programs on the Quinchia gold properties.
