Colorado Adds Second Drill Rig and Commences Phase III Drilling at North ROK

WEST KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 16, 2013) - COLORADO RESOURCES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:CXO) ("Colorado" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed the Phase II drill program and commenced a Phase III drill program at its 100% owned North ROK property (the "Property").

The recently completed Phase II drill program was on budget at $2 million and totalled 5,393 metres. The Company was able to achieve 400 metres of additional meterage due to drilling efficiencies. Drill core from holes 14 to 18 are at the assay lab for analysis and processing. Results will be released after they have been received and reviewed by the Company.

The Phase III drilling will continue to step out along strike and at depth from known mineralization. In order to test for deeper mineralization, a second drill with a greater depth capacity has been mobilized to site to support the Phase III program.

Further information on the North ROK programs is contained on Colorado's website, www.coloradoresources.com. The web-site contains a PowerPoint presentation with updated cross sections and a 3D model of the magnetic high and induced polarization anomalies overlain with drill holes.

Adam Travis, President and CEO of Colorado Resources commented, "We are proud of how far we have advanced the North ROK property since our first discovery drill hole was announced in April 2013. To date we have completed 18 drill holes totalling 6,914 metres. With a strong treasury and the mineralized system still open at depth and along strike, we plan to continue testing the size and grade of this discovery."
