Colorado Commences Drilling on Red Sky Property, West Central, British Columbia

WEST KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2011) - COLORADO RESOURCES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:CXO) ("Colorado" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the initiation of a drilling program on its Red Sky Project, in a joint venture partnership with Kinross Gold Corporation (TSX:K)(NYSE:KGC), one of the world's leading senior gold producers.

The road accessible Red Sky Property is located approximately 150 kilometres west of Williams Lake and south of the community of Redstone. The property has the potential to host copper-gold porphyry style mineralization similar to Taseko's Prosperity deposit as well as to host bulk tonnage gold mineralization similar to that found on Amarc's Newton property 30 km to the southeast.

The Company is currently completing $500,000 of expenditure requirements under an exploration agreement with Kinross to complete a 50/50 JV earn in.

The Company completed a program of geological mapping, till and rock chip sampling, Induced Polarization and magnetometer geophysical surveying on the property earlier this summer. This work defined a partially open 600 x 1,000 metre chargeability anomaly in an overburden covered area up ice from a coincident copper, zinc, gold and silver geochemical anomaly defined by detailed till sampling.

An initial 4 hole, 700 metre drilling program has been initiated to test the chargeability anomaly which occurs in an area of extensive glacial cover.

Company President Adam Travis states, "I am very pleased that we have been able to trace back initial government till anomalies more than 5 kilometres to their apparent source and that this area is underlain by a significant geophysical anomaly in an area of cover. Drill testing of this geophysical anomaly will give us an indication of the potential for the area to host economic mineralization."
