Colt Resources Inc. (TSX-V: GTP) (FRA: P01.F) (OTCQX: COLTF) is the largest lease holder of mineral concessions in Portugal.
Colt has assembled the largest mineral lease portfolio including gold, tungsten and base metals in Portugal.
Colt’s recent investor conference call indicated the following:
Colt Resources is confident in the experience level of management and operational team.
As of the last filing Colt Resources has 98,000,000 shares outstanding and $10 million in cash. Additionally, the company’s real estate assets include a Port Vineyard valued in excess of $10 million, located above ground at the Company’s Tungsten project in Portugal.
Colt Resources is the largest holder of mineral claims in Portugal.
Two Key Projects Focus were the focus of the call:
- Tabuaço (São Pedro das Águias) Tungsten Project
- Boa Fé / Montemor – Advanced Stage Gold Projects – 100 percent control
Tabuaço (São Pedro das Águias) Tungsten Project: A 43-101 regarding the tungsten project was published November 7, 2011, and provided strong beginning for project. Colt Resources intends to fast track the tungsten project and placing it in production in the next two to three years. The Company anticipates that the tungsten project is likely to come on stream at a time when world tungsten supplies have been reduced coupled with increasing world demand.
Colt has four drill rigs on site. The vineyard above ground on the surface of the tungsten project was acquired with the intention of continuing vineyard cultivation for port wine, co-existing with the tungsten project.
Boa Fé / Montemor – Advanced Stage Gold Projects: A 43-101 SRK Report was published in 2011, indicating over 40 km of a shear zone. Colt was recently granted a mining license for the project, receiving the final permit and one hundred percent control of the asset. The project includes over thirty years of exploration. The historical focus of exploration has been a near surface exploration of roughly the first 100 meters. While, the previous operators focused on the surface grids, Colt Resources is excited about the upside potential of exploring the deeper grids and their potential of the Montemor Gold Project as they explore and develop the asset. Colt aims to develop a 43-101 within the first half of 2012. Starting in January Colt anticipate a steady stream of growth based on the gold project.;

- Boa Fé / Montemor gold projects are at an advanced development stage with potential for near term production
- Located 100 km east of Lisbon
- Near surface gold deposits located along a major shear zone: > 30 km long
- Historical work includes over 500 trenches and over 1,000 drill holes
- Boa Fé / Montemor are prospective areas containing historical resource estimates that range from >150koz to 550koz Au in five separate high grade near surface deposits, as defined over the period 1991-2008
- Readily Recoverable Gold: Initial metallurgical testwork has demonstrated that gold is readily
recoverable using a combination of conventional methods (gravity, flotation and cyanide technologies)
- Resource Expansion Potential Based on SRK’s estimates, potential exists to expand historical resource to a range of 8-12Mt, grading an average of 2.5-3.0 g/t Au above a potentially economic cut-off, contained in a series of small open pit and underground deposits
