Colorado Goldfields Inc. Completes King Solomon Exploration Program for 2011 -- $20 Million Historic Silver Resource Comes Into View

Gold Stocks

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCQB: CGFIA) (PINKSHEETS: CGFIA) announced today that the Company has completed its 2011 exploration program on the King Solomon Mine.

The land position surveys were completed and corner monuments were set for the King Solomon claims. Several original corners, first placed in the 1800s, were found and re-monumented, which verifies the claim locations. Specific survey control points were completed to establish and fix the location of the two principal mine portals relative to the claim boundaries and surface vein expressions.

Exploration teams entered and explored the underground workings, locating important vein structures, and taking ore samples from each. Underground workings also revealed areas that are ready to be mined along with those that will require re-habilitation and timbering.

Most importantly, sufficient data was collected to begin the construction of the 3-D model of the mine; the most efficient way to develop the surface and underground diamond drilling exploration plan.

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.

"Using ore depth levels from nearby mines, and knowing that the structure of the King Solomon is 'open at depth,' and 'on strike,' allows us to estimate the total potential resource. By expanding our recovery into silver, the total resource is estimated to be as high as $20 million," stated Stephen C. Fearn, Registered Professional Engineer for Colorado Goldfields.

Historical assay results for the King Solomon Mine have revealed gold at 0.15 ounce per ton, but more importantly silver content as high as 42 ounces per ton. At $35.75 per ounce for silver, that represents about $1,500 in dollar value per ton. Combined with gold at $1,500 per ounce, total value per ton could be as high as $1,725 per ton.

"This work, along with the completion of the Brooklyn exploration plan and dry stack tailings repository, gives us more than enough to work with during the winter months. We are now in a position to advance the business plan on four fronts simultaneously: 1) The mill permit, 2) Brooklyn exploration, 3) King Solomon exploration, and 4) the Utah uranium property NI43-101. It will be a busy winter," stated Stephen Guyer, CFO for Colorado Goldfields.
