Nikolas Perrault, President and CEO of Colt, stated, "We continue to be impressed by the results from our drilling at Boa Fé. Our understanding of the deposits has appreciated significantly which will greatly assist our expanded exploration campaign that will follow later this year. That campaign will include deeper and on strike drilling to test for extensions of known deposits. We will also focus on the discovery of new mineralized zones having learned much from the results of our drilling combined with our deep research of over 30 years of work that preceded our involvement on this exciting gold project."

Program Strategy

Gold mineralization has been identified in several deposits along a shear zone that extends over some 30 kilometres along strike (Figure 1). Previous shallow drilling was focussed on the highest grading portions of gold anomalies that closely follow the regional shear. The mineralisation style interpreted in the current model assumes that high-grade gold mineralisation occurs where conjugate sets of shears intersect and reinforce each other (refer to press release 15th March 2012).

The Chaminé Deposit holes BFCH-12-019 and BFCH-12-025 (Figure 2) were both drilled vertically and complete the current round of definition drilling on section line 6375N. Results from these holes fit with the current model (Figure 3) in that zones of high-grade mineralisation appear to occur at the intersections of south-westerly dipping shears (S1, S2, S3) with shallow tensional structures (T) and shears gently dipping to the north-east (S4).

Holes BFCH-12-022, BFCH-12-027 and BFCH-12-028 were drilled vertically and lie on strike north from section 6375N and were drilled in order to to test structural continuity of the model within the zone of enhanced gold mineralisation over a strike length of 100m. Results from these holes confirm continuity of the model in the central portion of Chaminé deposit and also return significant gold intercepts in each hole over several metres vertical depth.

Hole BFCN-12-004 (Figure 2) is the fourth twin hole of a series drilled to validate integrity of assay data and grade distribution of a previously drilled RioFinEx hole at Casas Novas and as part of Colt's ongoing program to twin 10% of cored holes used in previous resource estimates. Visual comparison of the grade distribution down-the-hole shows reasonable correlation.

The Company will continue its aggressive advanced stage exploration campaign at Boa Fé consisting of a combination of vertical and inclined drill holes positioned to confirm previous drilling results at the Chaminé, Casas Novas, Braços, Banhos and Covas deposits and investigate the gaps between Chaminé-Casas Novas and Chaminé-Ligeiro to increase resource potential. The Company expects to expand its drilling program in order to increase its capacity considerably and to bring additional areas into its resource base and to test new targets aggressively. Results currently being interpreted from geophysical exploration (resistivity and seismic orientation surveys across Chaminé) will greatly assist in advancing targets in the gap areas. High priority regional targets identified through historical data assessment and field prospecting will also be tested. The results of this phase of work will form the basis for an initial NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate to be prepared later in 2012 covering several previously drilled gold bearing deposits within the Boa Fé EML.

Minimal drilling has been performed to test depth extensions below an average of 100 metres or along strike between known mineralized deposits. Given the shear zone style of mineralization and extensive gold anomalies in soils, there is good potential to build upon previous work that supported several non NI43-101 compliant resource estimates (see press release March 7, 2011).

Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC)

Drill sample intervals are reported as metres (m) down hole and as such do not represent true widths of mineralized intersections. All drill core is transported by the Company personnel from drill site to a nearby secure storage facility for logging and sampling. Sampling intervals are defined after core logging and determination of probable high grade zones based on visible mineralisation and favourable structure. The core is halved using a rotary diamond blade core saw, with one half of the core sent for analysis, while the other half is retained in the core boxes for future reference.

All half core samples are sent by courier to ALS Chemex's facility in Seville, Spain, where they undergo sample preparation. The resulting pulps are shipped by ALS to their laboratory in Romania for gold assay and routine ICP multi-element analysis. Gold analysis for all samples is done via method "Au - AA23" (Au by fire assay and AAS, 30g nominal sample weight). The detection limit for this method is 5 ppb. For every sample with Au values over 3 ppm, the pulp is re-analyzed by method "Au - GRA21" (Au by fire assay and gravimetric finish, 30g nominal sample weight). The detection range for this method is 0.05-1000 ppm.

A set of standards and blanks has been inserted by Colt into the drill sample stream on a regular basis in addition to the laboratory's own internal QA/QC standards and duplicates. QA/QC results to date are well within the accepted norm.
