MONTREAL, March 26 /PRNewswire/ - Colt Resources Inc. ("Colt" or the "Company") (TSXV: GTP) (FRA: P01) (OTCQX: COLTF) is pleased to announce that it has received final analytical results corresponding to four recently completed drillholes from the ongoing drilling and trenching campaign on its Boa Fé gold project, located within the Company's 100% owned (47Km2) Boa Fé Experimental Mining License (EML) in southern Portugal. The Boa Fé EML is completely surrounded by the Company's 100% owned (732Km2) Montemor exploration concession.

Nikolas Perrault, President and CEO of Colt, stated, "We have commenced the process of unlocking value at Casas Novas, located 400m NW of the Chaminé deposit. These initial near surface results combined with the additional positive near surface results from Chaminé and Ligeiro being reported today, strengthen our resolve to continue our aggressive advanced exploration campaign designed to rapidly develop several previously identified gold deposits located within our 100% controlled Boa Fé project."

Program Strategy

Gold mineralization has been identified in several deposits along a shear zone that extends over some 30 Kilometers along strike (Figure 1). Previous shallow drilling (Figure 2) 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).

Hole BFCH-12-012 was drilled on a short fence-line along section line 6525N at Chaminé. BFCH-12-011 (reported in press release 15th March 2012) was the first hole drilled on this fence. These holes were drilled vertically to get a better definition of the high grade zone which was outlined in an area previously drilled with holes inclined to the north-east (Figure 3). The intersections increase the volume of high grade material above 1g/t Au in this zone and also strengthen the model concept outlined above. This model links the elevated gold mineralization with conjugate shear sets that intersect at shallow angles, creating more space for the passage of gold mineralising fluids.

Hole BFCH-12-010 is a relatively deep inclined hole (deeper than 100m) drilled along section line 6600N at Chaminé which has been successful in intersecting mineralisation in a gap in the northern half of the deposit, where no drilling was performed previously. By infilling this gap, confidence in the resource in this part of the deposit has been significantly improved (see location on Figure 2).

Hole BFCN-12-001 is the first hole in the program to validate previous historical results at Casa Novas and twins a hole previously drilled on behalf of RioFinex. There appears to be an acceptable correlation between the two sets of results in terms of grade and grade distribution. Hole BFLG-12-002 confirms the presence of significant mineralization at Ligeiro reported by the historical drilling.

Colt will continue to test its current ideas on structural interpretation against previous models and aims to finalize a 3D model that incorporates the concept of conjugate shear orientations reinforcing each other and leading to higher grades of gold mineralization. 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, Ligeiro, Braços and Banhos deposits and investigate the gaps between Chaminé-Casas Novas and Chaminé-Ligeiro to increase resource potential. 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 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.
