COLORADO RESOURCES LTD. (TSX-V: CXO) (“Colorado” or the “Company”) announces the results of the fall exploration program recently completed at Heart Peaks project (“HP”) with its partner Centerra Gold Inc. (“Centerra”) (see News Release - September 14, 2015). The HP project is located approximately 45 kilometers northeast of the previously producing Golden Bear Mine* in central northwestern British Columbia.
The fall 2015 exploration program included the collection of over 400 rock, silt and soil samples, 46 km2 of detailed drone aerial photography, 13 line kilometres of Dipole-Dipole Induced Polarization surveys and 70 km2 of geological mapping. The results of this program highlight that gold mineralization is focused along two lithologically and structurally defined corridors: the west-northwest trending 2 km long Top Zone to Midas Zone corridor and the north trending 4 km long corridor bounded by the Mogul East and Mogul West fault systems which includes the Mogul, End, Steep and Crater Zones.
Significant gold values in surface grab samples were reported from the Midas, Top, Mogul and End Zones (see table below). The presence of visible gold was also noted in some of the higher grade samples from the Midas Zone. Results suggest there is good potential to find high grade gold mineralization at shallow to moderate depths at HP.

Adam Travis, President and CEO of Colorado states, “Working together with Centerra we managed to execute a very comprehensive program of geophysics, geochemistry and geology especially considering the late seasonal start. This work continues to confirm, expand and advance our understanding of this large mineralized and altered system. This year’s sampling reported some very high gold values along with very significant silver credits. We now have a better technical understanding of the controls at HP which will enable us to well position future drillholes.”
The samples were analyzed by Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories of Vancouver, British Columbia. All samples were analyzed by the AQ200 ICP-MS method, which reports base metal and silver results as parts per million (ppm) and gold results as parts per billion (ppb). All samples were also analyzed by the FA430 fire assay method which reports results in ppm and are equivalent to grams per tonne (g/t). Any samples returning greater than 10 ppm gold or 100 ppm silver were analyzed by the FA530 fire assay method with a gravimetric finish which reports results as grams per tonne. In order to investigate the possible effect of course gold on the assay result, a select number of samples were also analyzed by the screened metallic method (FS632).
