Colossus Minerals intersects high grade gold values in diamond drilling at Elefante

Friday, Jan 11, 2013

Colossus Minerals Inc. (TSX:CSI)(OTCQX:COLUF) reports assay results from the recent diamond drilling program on the Elefante area where earlier in the year auger drilling had returned values of gold, platinum and palladium. The Elefante area is located approximately two kilometres to the southeast of the Serra Pelada Gold-Platinum-Palladium Mine. The Serra Pelada Mine is a 75%/25% joint venture between Colossus and Cooperativa de Mineracao dos Garimpeiros de Serra Pelada (COOMIGASP) located in the State of Para, Brazil.

Claudio Mancuso, CEO of Colossus commented, "We conducted this limited drill program to explore the possibility that mineralization encountered in previous soil and auger sampling programs continue into the bedrock. While we remain focused on development of the Central Mineralized Zone ("CMZ") where we continue progressing well with bulk sample extraction, we are encouraged by these results and anticipate that further exploration could lead to development of a satellite deposit.

The area has seen little diamond drilling by Colossus and will be further explored in 2013. We look forward to providing an update on the progression of the bulk sample and other development activities in the next few weeks."
