MONTRÉAL, Feb. 7, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Colt Resources Inc. ("Colt" or the "Company") (TSXV: GTP) (FRA: P01) (OTCQX: COLTF) is pleased to announce that it has received final analytical results for four holes from the ongoing drilling 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.

The results are highlighted as follows:

Drill hole BFCH-11-005 (Inclined -45o to 085) - 175.70m deep
  From (m) To (m) Grade g/t Au Interval (m)*
  45.90 75.30 2.60 29.40
(Including) 56.00 66.40 3.86 10.40
Drill hole BFCH-11-006 (Vertical) - 51.89m deep

  From (m) To (m) Grade g/t Au Interval (m)*
  9.65 20.50 11.96 10.85
(Including) 10.60 14.00 31.07 3.40
Drill hole BFCH-12-001 (Vertical) - 55.24m deep
  From (m) To (m) Grade g/t Au Interval (m)*
  40.15 45.20 3.30 5.05

* True Width has not been determined at this time.

Nikolas Perrault, President and CEO of Colt, stated, "We are very pleased with these results which add further confidence to our understanding of the geology and mineralization when combined with results from the very extensive database that we acquired as part of the property acquisition."

Program Strategy

Gold mineralization has been identified in several shallow deposits along a shear zone that extends over some 30 Kilometers.  Previous drilling was focussed on the highest grading portions of gold anomalies that closely follow the regional shear.  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 NI 43-101 compliant resource estimates that range from 150koz to 550koz of gold as defined over the period 1991-2008 (see press release March 7, 2011).

Colt's initial work program during the first half of 2012 is designed to confirm and expand upon extensive historical drilling and trenching performed by previous operators.  The company has commenced the implementation of an aggressive advanced stage exploration campaign consisting of a combination of vertical and inclined drill holes positioned to confirm previous drilling results at the Chaminé, Casas Novas and Ligeiro deposits.  Geophysical exploration including resistivity and seismic methods are also being employed. This work will greatly expand the geological, geotechnical and metallurgical knowledge base.  Our geological team is testing the geological models proposed by previous operators so as to move forward with increased confidence towards resource delineation and mine development.  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 resource estimate to be prepared later in 2012 covering several previously drilled gold bearing deposits within the Boa Fé EML.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC)

Sample intervals are reported as metres (m) down hole and as such do not represent true widths of mineralized intersections. The morphology of the gold mineralization is yet to be determined.

All drill core is transported by 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. One half of the core is sent for analysis, while the other half is retained in the core boxes for future reference.

All 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 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.
