Trading Symbols: GTP - (TSX-V) P01 - (FRANKFURT) COLTF - (OTCQX)
MONTREAL, Jan. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Colt Resources Inc. (“Colt” or
the “Company”) (TSXV: GTP) (FRA: P01) (OTCQX: COLTF) is very pleased to
announce that it continues to strengthen its operations team in
Portugal. Seasoned geologist, Steve McRobbie, B.Sc., M.Sc., has
accepted to lead the Company’s mine geology efforts. Mr. McRobbie’s
diversified international experience with advanced stage projects is
key to us as we rapidly move our two main assets from exploration
Mr. McRobbie is a mining and exploration geologist with nearly 20 years
of extensive international experience. He has served as the Vice
President of Exploration for Global Cobalt Corp., Director of
Exploration of Kazakhmys Plc. and General Manager of Europe and the CIS
for Monaro Mining Plc. He holds a B.Sc. in Geology from the University
of St. Andrews and a M.Sc. in Mining Geology from the University of
Exeter. Mr. McRobbie is a Member of The Australasian Institute of
Mining and Metallurgy and an Associate of Camborne School of Mines.
Under the supervision and direction of Mr. Declan Costelloe, Mr.
McRobbie will be working closely with Mr. Jorge Valente, mining eng.
(IST), whose extensive mine engineering and development experience
worldwide was gained with his involvement in studies, engineering
projects, mine planning and commissioning over 50 mining operations, in
Europe, Africa and South America. Mr. Valente has over forty’ years
experience, including creating and managing his own consulting firm for
over twenty years, specialized in ore resources and reserve estimation
and mine planning (open pit, underground and underwater). Mr. Valente
is a published author (nine books and more than 100 technical papers),
Member and/or Fellow of various international mining societies, namely
of the SME of AIME (USA) and CREA-MG (Brasil), Director of APROMIN
(Brasil) and professor (now retired) of the UFOP’ School of Mines
In addition, Mr. Filipe Faria, B.Sc., B.Sc. (Hon.), who has been
consulting almost exclusively for Colt for the past few years, has
agreed to join the Company full-time to become its VP of Exploration.
He has over thirty years’ experience in mineral exploration and
evaluation projects, including creating and managing his own consulting
firm for over twelve years and as an exploration geologist with
RioTinto Finance and Exploration for twelve years. He holds a B.Sc. in
Geology from the University of Lourenco Marques (Mozambique) and a
B.Sc. (Hon.) in Geology from the University of Lisbon (Portugal). Mr.
Faria’s main focus will be to pursue the multiple regional exploration
targets Colt has identified near both its Boa Fe gold and Tabuaco
tungsten development projects to the point where, when successful, they
can be transitioned over to an advanced projects team.
Finally, the Board of Directors of Colt has agreed to change the
financial year end of Colt from March 31 to December 31. This will
align the financial year ends of both Colt and its subsidiaries,
including the recently acquired Q.S.P.A.- Sociedade Viticola
Unipessoal, Lda., and results in a simplification of internal
processes, with all subsidiaries and business units using the same
reporting periods. The first reporting obligation pursuant to the new
fiscal year will be the preparation and filing of Colt’s audited annual
financial statements for the nine months ended December 31, 2011
compared to the 12 months ended March 31, 2011.
