Colorado Goldfields Announces Intent to Assist Financing of Additional Mexican Property Acquisitions

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - April 23, 2008) - Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCBB: CGFI) (the "Company") announced today that it has signed a second letter of intent with Besmer, S.A. de C.V. of Durango, Mexico.

In connection with the proposed acquisition of 75% of the shares in Besmer, S.A. de C.V. ("Besmer"), Colorado Goldfields Inc. has signed a Letter of Intent to loan Besmer US$100,000 for use as initial property option payments by Besmer. Company personnel have identified specific properties from extensive site visits to be acquired using these funds. Management believes that these properties, if successfully acquired, will offer superior potential for silver and base metal production and increase the overall potential of the operation. The funds will be used by Besmer to secure five or more mineral properties under purchase agreements with the total price of each property to be paid over a period of up to two years. The Company and Besmer are in the process of finalizing loan documents to formalize the terms of the loan as contemplated by the second letter of intent.

Todd Hennis, President of Colorado Goldfields Inc., states: "Our due diligence on the Besmer acquisition is ongoing, with our milling consultant having completed site work at the Bocas Hacienda Mill. Additional company personnel are due to arrive in Mexico this week to further perform financial and technical due diligence activities. Should the due diligence be successfully completed, and the Besmer acquisition close, we plan to fund further property acquisitions by Besmer to expand the exploration and production potential of its Mexican operations, subject to the Company's obtaining adequate financing."
