LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - December 16, 2010) - Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCBB: CGFIA) announced today that its President and CEO Lee R. Rice and CFO Stephen Guyer, were recently interviewed on "The Big Biz Show."

A link to the interview will be provided soon.

Guyer and Rice update listeners with current events of the Company which include the Pride of the West Mill re-activation, the permitting process, political change, gold price increase, and much more.

One of the topics in the interview was the permitting process for the Company's Pride of the West Mill. "At the core of the reactivation efforts is the submission of what is known as Regular (112d) Designated Mining Operation Reclamation Permit. In total, the Company has submitted over 1,000 pages of documents, including engineering studies, mapping, seismic analysis, water analysis, air quality, mining plans, wildlife protection plans, and environmental protection facilities. Over the past 12 months, this has been the major project for the Company involving well over 15 people, 5 engineering firms, and a mining law firm. The project began in October, 2009, and requires the highest level of professional services available to the Company," said Stephen Guyer, CFO for Colorado Goldfields.

"Colorado elected a new Governor in November -- John Hickenlooper. I have met face-to-face with John and he has voiced his support for what we are doing. John's background is geology and as we all know, creating real jobs is what will fuel a real economic recovery. He understands what we're doing and supports it. That will create a very receptive political arena in which to work," continued Guyer.

Additionally, the Company reports that the hearing date for the Pride of the West Mill permit amendment before the Colorado Mined Land Reclamation Board has been extended to December 16, 2010.
