Colorado Goldfields Inc. Restates Rules of Engagement on Class B Shares and Warrants

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - March 3, 2009) - Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCBB: CGFIA) restated today the Company's instructions regarding all registered DTC Participant brokers, clearing firms or market makers who hold positions in the Company's Class A Common Stock shares as of February 27, 2009.

Company CFO C. Stephen Guyer declared, "We have received a number of inquiries regarding the Company's issuance of Class B Common Stock and Class B Warrants, and in one instance a DTC Participant's rather vociferous demand that the Company issue Class B Common Stock shares and Class B Warrants ('Class B Securities') in 'nominee form.' The complaining DTC Participant, representing a Class A Common Stock share position of approximately 7 million Class A Common Stock shares, sought to acquire Class B Securities in the DTC Participant's name in nominee form, while ignoring the Company's express issuance rules, which require beneficial ownership disclosure of Class A Common Stock as a condition precedent to acquiring the Company's Class B Securities.

"The notion that we as a Company would make an exception, or show favoritism toward a particular DTC Participant in violation of the shareholder instructions is simply outrageous," Mr. Guyer continued. "The 'Rules of Engagement' are crystal clear. Only beneficial owners of record of the Company's Class A Common Stock shares as of February 27, 2009 may receive Class B Common Stock and Class B Warrants upon disclosure of the respective shareholder's Class A Common Stock beneficial ownership through the shareholder's broker (DTC Participant) filing the appropriate submission with the Company's Transfer Agent. There will be no Company Class B Common Stock nor Class B Warrants issued in nominee form, period."
