Colombian Mines Awarded Consolidation of Yarumalito Project From Colombian Government

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 1, 2012) - Colombian Mines Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CMJ)(FRANKFURT:X6C) ("Colombian Mines" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it is in receipt of the administrative act confirming the integration of the Company's Yarumalito project originally composed of six individual licenses into a single integrated license.

The consolidation of Yarumalito is a very important and positive step for the Company that materially improves and simplifies management of exploration, development and production throughout the life of the project. Originally composed of six separate licenses all filed on widely varying dates, each license was required to have separate Environmental, Work and Production plans and reports, and at production each license would have been required to show "stand alone" economics, potentially requiring six separate Feasibility Reports. As an integrated license the property is managed as a single, new license and will be eligible for up to 11 years of exploration and valid for production through December 4, 2032. The production contract may be extended for an additional 20 year term, until December 4, 2052. The entire property will now be covered by the same Environmental Management, Work and Production plans.
