Gold Stocks

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2011) - Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCQB: CGFIA) (PINKSHEETS: CGFIA) announced that it has begun its 2011 exploration program for the King Solomon Mine. The King Solomon Mine is located on the southern flank of King Solomon Mountain, just a few hundred yards up the mountain from the first discovery of gold in the San Juan Mountains in Little Giant Basin.

Although this season's late snow melt delayed the start, the planned surface work is now proceeding. Surveying of the patented mining claims is under way to verify the exact location of the claim corners and boundaries. Location of the portals, dumps, roads, vein outcrops and other geologic features are being identified and mapped. Identifiable vein outcrops, mine dumps and other mineralized expressions being sampled to define metal values.

This work is under the direction of Robert Larson, Certified Professional Geologist, Professional Land Surveyor, and founder of Monadnock Mineral Services of Ouray, Colorado. Mr. Larson graduated with an Engineer of Mines degree, Colorado School of Mines, 1968. Over 40 years experience in mining, exploration and surveying mostly in the western United States. Mining experience includes base and precious metal engineering and management, both surface and underground; Exploration includes precious metals, base metals, uranium and industrial minerals in various geological environments, including volcanogenic, sediment-hosted replacement and chemical precipitates within sediments; Surveying includes property surveys, subdivision surveys, underground and surface mining surveys, mining claim surveys and constructions surveys.

Immediately following the surface work, surveying and mapping of the two accessible underground levels of the mine will be undertaken. Sampling of the underground workings will be conducted to identify metal values and to define the occurrence of metal values within the vein structures. All surveying and sampling data will be analyzed and incorporated into a three-dimensional model of the mine which will be used to develop a core drilling program to further evaluate the mineral potential of the property and develop a mining plan.

"With gold and silver prices continuing to rise, the King Solomon represents an ever increasing value to Colorado Goldfields. The estimated value of the Mine has increased by $2 million in just the last month," stated C. Stephen Guyer, CFO for Colorado Goldfields.
