Colt Resources Inc. ("Colt" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GTP)(FRANKFURT:P01)(OTCQX:COLTF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement pursuant to which a syndicate of underwriters led by TD Securities Inc., and including Desjardins Securities Inc. and Versant Partners Inc. (collectively, the "Underwriters") has offered to purchase, on a bought deal private placement basis, 10,000,000 common shares (the "Shares") of the Company at a price of $0.50 per Share for gross proceeds of $5,000,000 (the "Offering"). The Company has also granted the Underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 1,500,000 Shares at the same price (the "Underwriters' Option"), which is exercisable by the Underwriters at any time up to two business days prior to closing. If this option is fully exercised, total gross proceeds will be $5,750,000.

Concurrent with the Offering, Colt also intends to sell, on a non-brokered private placement basis with European investors, up to 7,400,000 Shares at a price of $0.50 per Share for gross proceeds of up to $3,700,000 (the "Non-Brokered Private Placement"). Aggregate gross proceeds from the Offering and the Non-Brokered Private Placement will be up to $8,700,000 (up to $9,450,000 if the Underwriters' Option is fully exercised). The majority of the Non-Brokered Private Placement is being subscribed for by one of Portugal's leading industrial conglomerates.

The net proceeds from the Offering and the Non-Brokered Private Placement will be used for exploration and development of the Company's projects, more specifically to accelerate and increase the size of the drilling program currently underway at the Company's Boa Fe Montemor gold project, and for general corporate working capital purposes.

The Offering and the Non-Brokered Private Placement are scheduled to close on or about May 1, 2012 and are subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities to be issued under the Offering and the Non-Brokered Private Placement will be subject to a four month hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
