TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 29, 2009) - Medoro Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MRS) announced today that it has executed a letter of intent to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Colombia Gold plc, a privately held UK company whose main assets are the mining rights to the Echandia property.
