The financial capacity provided by the SEDA reflects Colorado Goldfields' strategy for maintaining rapid business growth while preserving the opportunity to optimise financing methods. Yorkville has provided such facilities to other companies in the natural resources sector, including Fortescue Metals Group (ASX), United Fiber Systems (SGX) and Petra Diamonds (AIM).

The principal features of the SEDA are as follows:

    1. The maximum aggregate amount of the equity line is $5,000,000 and Colorado Goldfields is entitled to draw down the equity credit line in tranches of up to $250,000 at its option every five trading days.   2. For each share of Common Stock purchased under the SEDA, YA Global will pay to the Company ninety-five (95%) of the lowest volume weighted average price (as quoted by Bloomberg, LP) of the Common Stock on the principal market (whichever is at such time the principal trading exchange or market for the Common Stock) during the five (5) consecutive trading days after the Advance Notice Date (as such term is defined in the SEDA), subject to any reduction provided in the SEDA.

  3. Yorkville may not refuse a notice by Colorado Goldfields to subscribe for new Common Shares provided that each time notice is given the pre-conditions have been met, which includes a requirement that warranties given by the Company have not been materially breached.   4. There are no restrictions placed on Colorado Goldfields' access to other funding during the term of the agreement.   5. There are no warrants or any other attached instruments to the issue of the shares arising from each put by Colorado Goldfields. About Colorado Goldfields, Inc.
