Vancouver, BC – June 23, 2008 - Sheffield Resources Ltd. ( “Sheffield” ) (TSX-V: SLD) and (FRANKFURT: “S2Q”) is pleased to report initial assay results from the 2008 diamond drilling program at the Engels Mine Prospect which is located on Sheffield’s Moonlight Copper Project claims in Plumas County, California.

The current drill program is designed as a series of step out drill holes to define the boundaries of high-grade potentially leachable copper mineralization at the Engels Mine prospect. The true widths of the mineralization have not yet been determined.
Dave Jenkins, Sheffield’s President recently commented, "Once again, the drill results expand the area of potentially economic high-grade copper mineralization starting at the surface at the Engels Mine prospect. The Engels’ mineralization remains open for expansion to the north, west, south and to depth. The near surface geometry and high copper grade indicate that this project has the potential to be fast tracked to feasibility at relatively low cost." Photographs, cross sections and a location map of the project can be found on Sheffield’s website www.sheffieldresources.com
