Colorado Goldfields Inc. Reaffirms January 2009 CEO Report: "Black to the Future" -- 1990 Engineering Report Fast Forward to 2008 Exploration Drilling Program Results

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - April 24, 2009) - Due to the Company's change in ticker symbol, Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCBB: CGFIA) ( is pleased to reaffirm Lee Rice's report "Black to the Future," first presented on January 29, 2009.

On February 15, 1990, a seminal comprehensive engineering report was issued on the Company's Gold King Mine in Silverton, Colorado; this document, "Evaluation Report IV on the Gold King Mine Property, San Juan County," is widely known as "The Black Report" (authored by E.D. Black, Professional Engineer). The Black Report effectively assimilates a comprehensive statistical interpretation and defines a resource estimate at The Gold King, establishing a potential resource on the order of 406,000 ounces of gold (Au), and 3,700,000 ounces of silver (Ag), contained in 1,376,000 tons grading 0.29 oz/ton Au, and 2.64 oz/ton Ag.

"We are extraordinarily gratified that our Exploratory Diamond Drilling plan completed in the summer of 2008 brought forward and reconfirmed the potential resource magnitude originally presented by The Black Report in 1990," states Lee R. Rice, CEO of Colorado Goldfields Inc., Registered Professional Engineer and Qualified Person.

"The results from the Company's activities have been presented in recent press releases, and 'bottom line,' the results were 100% encouraging and positive. The structures (veins) were intercepted and then grouped together into zones (i.e., A Zone, D Zone, etc.) for interpretive purposes, and evaluated by multi-element geochemical and fire-assay technologies. Gold King Drill hole CG08-01 encountered 20 vein structures throughout its extent (1,368 feet); CG08-02 sampled 16 vein structures through its 1,065-foot extent; and CG08-03 passed through 12 vein structures in the 868 feet of its 1,092-foot extent that has completed processing and analysis," states Company CEO, Lee R Rice.

The Company's Board of Directors has requested that Mr. Rice perform his own 42 element analysis on the samples from The Gold King, which will involve 18,000 separate calculations, and deliver his comprehensive report by the end of 1st quarter 2009. These samples represent mineralizations in gold, silver, copper, zinc and other metals from the Gold King Mine and the Gold King Extension.

"We are exceedingly fortunate to have as our Chief Executive a Professional Engineer and Qualified Person of the highest standing in Lee Rice, and we all look forward to reviewing his extensive report," states C. Stephen Guyer, CFO Colorado Goldfields Inc.
