Colorado Goldfields Updates Shareholders on 2009 Drilling Program, Shareholder Conference Call, Acquisitions, and CFO Compensation

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - August 7, 2009) - Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTCBB: CGFIA) in response to several inquiries by our loyal and valued shareholders, we are providing the following updates.

Exploration drilling activities during the 2009 season have been understandably challenged by a restrictive financing marketplace. The Company has pursued many avenues of funding for our drilling program and we continue to evaluate alternatives presently available for junior mining companies. On the other hand and as described in recent press releases, we are extremely pleased with the progress made toward re-activating our Pride of the West Mill. Moreover, financing for the Mill looks very promising at this time.

In our effort to complement the Company's continuing financing search, we believe there is "strength in numbers" and thus, we are constantly evaluating acquisition opportunities that will bring value and match up to our goals as a company. This pursuit has involved management and our geologist team in the intense review and financial modeling of multiple potential acquisition targets. We anticipate an announcement in this realm shortly.

The investor conference call originally scheduled for the end of April has been postponed. We should be in a position to reschedule sometime during the 4th quarter of this year.

As reported in our recent SEC Form 8-K filed on August 4, 2009, the Company entered into a new employment agreement with our Chief Financial Officer, C. Stephen Guyer, effective July 1, 2009. As a consequence thereof on August 4, 2009 Mr. Guyer was awarded 26,597,500 Class A Common Shares. Of those shares, 20,000,000 Class A common shares were issued as a bonus for the one year renewal of Mr. Guyer's Executive Employment Contract. By agreement with Mr. Guyer, the 20,000,000 Class A common shares are restricted from sale for a period of 2 years from the date of issuance except in the event of his death, or a change of control as defined in the Executive Employment Agreement.

Furthermore, as of August 6, 2009, sales of Class A common shares by Mr. Guyer have met the limit specified under Rule 144. Regarding the balance of approximately 6.6 million Class A common shares awarded to Mr. Guyer, these shares shall not be sold until November 6, 2009.

With no staff or assistant, Mr. Guyer's work schedule as Chief Financial Officer of Colorado Goldfields Inc. begins at 5:30am MDT Monday through Friday and three weekends per month to fulfill his duties which include: accounts payable, vendor relations, banking relations, financial structure analysis, pro forma financial modeling, research, investor relations, preparation for Board of Director meetings, preparation of all requisite SEC compliance filings, website maintenance, audio video production, contract review, overseeing the audit function, capital raising, and maintaining proper and productive relationships with the Bureau of Land Management, Environmental Protection Agency, the Colorado Division of Mining Reclamation and Safety, Colorado Department of Revenue, Corporate Stock Transfer, Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, and other state and federal regulatory authorities. Mr. Guyer routinely performs a 15 hour day, 28 days per month in completion of his duties on behalf of the Company.

As stated by Lee Rice, CEO Colorado Goldfields, "We are extremely grateful for the dedication, time and effort Stephen Guyer has given and continues to commit to our Company. As a Board we are 100% supportive of Mr. Guyer who has performed an outstanding job in maintaining the Company's operations and administration. Moreover, Mr. Guyer's invaluable service should be appreciated by all our shareholders."

Mr. Guyer has received zero cash salary since September 2008. Proceeds from the sale of stock owned by Mr. Guyer in 2009 total $26,400.
