Colombia Goldfields Intercepts 72 Meters Grading 2.09 g/t Gold at Marmato Mountain Gold Project

    THE U.S./

    TORONTO, June 21 /CNW/ - Colombia Goldfields Ltd (the "Company") today
released the results of the first three drill holes from its exploration of
the Zona Alta at the Marmato Mountain gold project in Colombia. The highlights
include intercepts of 72.0 meters grading 2.09 g/t gold and 77.0 meters
grading 1.15 g/t gold.
    Five diamond drill holes have been completed with one drill rig for a
total of 1,703 meters. Results from the first three holes have been received
and are listed in Table 1. These are part of an initial 8,000 meter drilling
program being carried out, together with underground channel sampling, in
order to define a new resource during Q4 of 2007. A larger 60,000 meter drill
program to define resources and prepare a feasibility study is expected to be
completed by the end of 2008.
    The first three holes were drilled on Cerro El Burro to the north-west of
the known limit of mineralization. Drill hole MT-1001 intercepted multiple
zones of gold mineralization including 12.0 meters grading 1.62 g/t gold from
174.0 to 186.0 meters. The mineralized intercepts of holes MT-1002 and MT-1003
represent 50 to 200 meter strike extensions of previously known mineralized
zones. Hole MT-1002 intercepted 72.0 meters grading 2.09 g/t gold from 226.0
to 298.0 meters, which is a 200 meter strike extension of a known vein.
Similarly, the 77.0 meter intercept grading 1.15 g/t gold from 229.0 to
294.0 meters in MT-1003 represents a 170 meter strike extension of a known
vein. Collectively these intercepts confirm the presence of significant widths
of veinlet and fracture-controlled mineralization adjacent to the major
mineralized structures.
    "The first drill results confirm the types of grades and widths reported
in the historical drilling and resource estimate," said Randy Martin,
President and CEO, Colombia Goldfields. "As well, the results extend the
mineralization into areas that have never been drilled and beyond the extent
of artisanal mining. Even more encouraging is that the zones are open to the
north-west and at depth."
    The Company will be accelerating the drill program with the purchase of
three diamond drill rigs. The first drill, an underground rig, is due for
delivery later in June. The other two drills are man-portable surface rigs
ideal for the steep slopes of Marmato and are scheduled for delivery in July.
