Colorado Goldfields Inc. -- Third in a Special Series on the Pride of the West Mill

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) - Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCBB: CGFIA) presents this third in a special series on the Pride of the West Mill and its significance to the Company. Various quoted statements and historic facts stated below derive from Company research and specifically a treatise authored by Dawn Bunyak, for the Department of the Interior in 1999 on an inactive historic landmark mill less than 10 miles from the Company's Pride of the West Mill.

The Pride of the West Mill, near Silverton, Colorado is located within the famous "San Juan Triangle" mining center of southwestern Colorado, which also includes the historic mining towns of Telluride and Ouray, and encompasses one of the most richly mineralized areas of North America. Fourteen thousand feet mountain peaks tower over the mill, which is accessible year round because of its location on county maintained access roads.

The mill has the capability to process five metals: gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc. In operation as recently as 2004, the mill contains virtually all of its working components enclosed within one complex. The complex includes: 1) ore stockpile pad, 2) crushing plant consisting of a coarse ore bin adjacent to the stockpile area, an apron feeder, conveyor to the crushing section, a 3 foot Symons vibrating grizzly, jaw crusher, 4'x 8' Symons rod deck screen, conveyors, a 3 foot Symons standard cone crusher, and electromagnets, 3) grinding circuit including a Macy Rod mill and a Denver Ball mill, 4) flotation circuit and ancillary equipment all in one building. The leach plant is in a separate building and is configured for 2 or 4 tank agitation leach with carbon in leach. The carbon stripping plant is in the main mill building as is the melt furnace. A separate building houses a metallurgical laboratory for sample preparation, and an assay laboratory. A large metal building houses offices and a truck shop, with living quarters for several people upstairs.
