"The fact that American Sierra on behalf of the Company's over seven thousand shareholders showed this commitment to Colorado Goldfields strongly supports our business model and the course our company is taking. After four years of total and consistent dedication and perseverance in the face of a very challenging worldwide economic climate, the strategic expansion of our shareholder base and the strengthening of our capital base opens up new growth prospects for us and creates further potential for acquisitions," said Stephen Guyer, CFO of Colorado Goldfields.
