VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

COLORADO RESOURCES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:CXO) ("Colorado" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that due to the positive response received, the Company has decided to upsize its previously announced offering with a non-brokered private placement financing of $2,000,000 through the issuance of 2,222,222 units at $0.90 per unit (the "Non-Brokered Placement").

Each unit of the Non-Brokered Placement will be completed on pricing consistent with the units offered pursuant to the Brokered Placement (defined herein) and will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one-half (50%) of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"), each Warrant being exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company for a period of 24 months following the Closing Date (as hereinafter defined) at a price of $1.25 per share.

The Non-Brokered Placement is in addition to the recent brokered private placement financing of $12,270,000 (the "Brokered Placement") announced March 29, 2011 co-led by Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd. and Dundee Securities Ltd. (collectively the "Lead Underwriters") comprised of 7,800,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at an issue price of $0.90 per Unit and 5,000,000 common shares of the Company that qualify as flow-through shares for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Flow-Through Shares") at an issue price of $1.05 per Flow-Through Share.

The net proceeds from the Non-Brokered Offering will be used to fund continued development of the Company's exploration properties including the Oro Gold Property in the Yukon, and for general working capital purposes.

It is expected that the closing of the Non-Brokered Placement will occur on or about April 14, 2011 (the "Closing Date") and is subject to certain conditions including receipt of all applicable regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

No finder's fees or commissions will be paid with respect to the Non-Brokered Placement.

This press release is not an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities, nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to qualification or registration under the securities laws of such jurisdiction. The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and such securities may not be offered or sold within the United States absent an applicable exemption from U.S. registration requirements.
