Tao Minerals Updates Website to Include Information About the El Colmillo Gold Mine Project

MEDELLIN, COLOMBIA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2008) - Tao Minerals, Ltd. (OTCBB: TAOL) is pleased to announce that its website has been updated to reflect the company's current near-term focus on the El Colmillo Gold Mine, the upgrade of which will begin momentarily. A key element of the website update is a detailed description of the geology and mineralization of the large, 296 hectares (well over one square mile) in size, El Colmillo concession. A brief excerpt of the complete description found on the website stipulates that the El Colmillo mineralized zone includes 3 defined vein structures, known to extend for a minimum of 300 meters by virtue of their appearance in existing tunnels, with a strong potential of their continuation for an additional 1.2 kilometers within the concession area.

Another excerpt explains that, historically, production ore grades at El Colmillo (head grades) have varied between 10 and 50 grams/ton gold, with zones of enrichment up to 250 grams/ton gold. If only the two main veins are considered, it is estimated that an economically quite significant amount of low extraction cost gold can be produced from El Colmillo. If the 3rd vein and the probability of the existence of additional sub parallel veins are considered, the gross amount of extractable gold could be even more substantial.

Also new to the website are a series of current photographs showing the existing, low tech/pre upgrade, workings at El Colmillo, plus a view of one of the exposed vein structures. Photos of the workings include the entrance of the main tunnel and an aerial view of the existing recovery plant.

Jim Sikora, President of Tao Minerals, Ltd., had this to say about the website updates, "The inclusion of information about El Colmillo on the company website marks another step in the process, which is building momentum, to achieve the near-term conversion of that property into a highly productive and profitable, modern gold mine. We are excited about the potential for this project's rapid progress going forward and will be issuing more reports detailing our advances in the weeks ahead."
