Blue Diamond Ventures Moves Toward Wind Turbine Agreement, Following Highly Favorable Wind Study Results

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 2, 2009) - Blue Diamond Ventures, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BLDV) -- Following highly favorable wind study results in Huerfano County, Colorado, Blue Diamond Ventures, through its affiliate Blue Diamond Ventures Renewables, LLC, and its joint venture partner Freedom Works, LLC, have moved toward a wind turbine supply agreement and final designs to construct a 198 megawatt wind project plus 68 miles of transmission line.

On-site met tower wind data for the joint venture's Huerfano Project will be completed on September 8, 2009. The data for the project is available at: http://www.engr.colostate.edu/ALP/ALP_62_Sheep_Mountain.htm.

The new study is the culmination of five years of wind data studies throughout Huerfano County and proves the existence of resource at the Colorado Wind Generation Resource Area #8 as described by the Governor's Energy Office. The project's transmission line has been identified by Colorado Governor Bill Ritter as the number one transmission priority in the State of Colorado.

"Despite the current economic environment, we have worked extremely hard to meet our goals and increase shareholder value," said Blue Diamond CEO John Quincey Moaning.

Last year, the company established a goal to implement its renewable generation portfolio -- the foundation of which is the development of basic infrastructure to facilitate timely transmission, substation and wind turbine generator installations in the Midwestern United States.
