Zoloto announces update on 2008 year-end financials



    VANCOUVER, May 5 /CNW/ - Zoloto Resources Ltd. ("Zoloto" or the
"Company") (TSX Venture: ZR) announces, further to the Company's press release
issued on April 22, 2009, an application to the applicable securities
commissions or regulators for a management cease trade order related to the
Company's common shares has not been accepted. A general Cease Trade Order
against all securities of the Company has been issued from the British
Columbia Securities Commission effective May 4, 2009 for failure to file its
Annual Audited Financial Statements ("Financial Statements") and related
Management Discussion & Analysis ("MD&A") for the Company's financial year
ended December 31, 2008, as required by National Instrument 51-102 Continuous
Disclosure Obligations, and the CEO and CFO certificates required under
National Instrument 52-109 (the "Certificates").
    The late filing of the required statements is a result in a delay in the
consolidation of the Company's Russian subsidiaries and issues with respect to
transporting the auditors to remote regions in Russia. As a result, the
auditors require additional time to complete their audit.
    Zoloto is working with its auditors to complete the audit of the
Financial Statements as soon as possible and anticipates filing the Financial
Statements and MD&A by, or before, June 30, 2009.
