Colorado Goldfields Inc. Acquires Utah Payday and Rage Uranium Mines; 63 Unpatented Uranium Claims With an Estimated Value Equal to $14,000,000 -- Part 3

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Jul 15, 2011) - Gold Stocks

Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCQB: CGFIA) (PINKSHEETS: CGFIA) announced on June 29, 2011 that the Company had acquired the Payday & Rage Mines located in San Juan County, Northeast of Monticello, Utah. This acquisition marks a significant expansion into other metals, both "precious" and "exotic," and provides Colorado Goldfields a greatly enhanced ability to capitalize on a wider number of market drivers for price -- both investor economics and manufacturing.

John Ferguson, Director of Operations for Colorado Goldfields, provides the following background and insights into the importance of this acquisition.

The recent acquisition of a group of claims in San Juan County, Utah area affords Colorado Goldfields with an important strategic opportunity. This group of claims is located close to Monticello, Utah and close to the Southwestern end of the famous Uravan Mineral Belt. The Uravan Mineral Belt was first mined in the early World War I era for carnotite (a uranium mineral that contains radium) for the radium content which was used in Madam Curie's radiation experiments, and in phosphorescent paint.

After World War II, the area was extensively prospected for uranium for use in the nuclear weapons program. The US Atomic Energy Commission constructed a uranium mill and ore buying station just south of Monticello. Extensive mining took place in the Colorado Plateau Region beginning in 1953-54. During that time, additional mills were constructed in Uravan (Union Carbide), Naturita (Vanadium Corp of America), Durango (VCA), Hite (VCA), Grand Junction, Colorado (Climax Uranium), and later Moab, Utah (Atlas Corp). By the end of the decade the massive increase of production of uranium from the Colorado Plateau, Grants, New Mexico, and other areas of Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Texas were supplying more uranium than was required for the weapons program.

A considerable amount of production has occurred adjacent to the area of the Colorado Goldfields claims -- both to the north and east of the claims. Most notable were the Deremo group of mines to the east which were operated for many years by Union Carbide and other mines in the Summit Point area northeasterly from Colorado Goldfields' claims.
