VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 11, 2013) -


Colorado Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CXO) ("CXO" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the Company has closed the non-brokered private placement (the "Financing") announced in the Company's News Release dated June 21, 2013.

The Financing resulted in the issuance of 5,000,000 flow-through shares at a purchase price of $0.80 for gross proceeds of $4,000,000. Proceeds from the Financing will be used primarily to advance exploration activities on the Company's North ROK and other Canadian properties.

Finder's fees are payable on a portion of the Financing equivalent to 5% cash ($158,000) and 5% warrants (197,500) (a "Finder Warrant"). Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share (a "Warrant Share") of the Company at an exercise price of $0.85 per Warrant Share for a period of 12 months from the closing date of the Financing.

In accordance with the Canadian securities legislation currently in effect the securities issued pursuant to the Financing will have a restricted "hold" period in Canada expiring on November 9, 2013.

"I'm very pleased to close this strategic financing during these difficult market conditions," said Adam Travis, President and CEO of Colorado. "Half the Financing went to one institutional purchaser and a significant portion went to long-time supporters of the Company, which is a testimony to the strength of not only our projects, but also our team."
