Colossus Minerals Reaches Mineralized Zone in Secondary Development

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/31/12 -- Colossus Minerals Inc. (TSX:CSI)(OTCQX:COLUF) has reached mineralization in its secondary development. The bulk sample collection process has begun and all material is being assayed and sorted on surface on the stockpile pad. Geologic controls and assaying of material will guide the bulk sampling process which will lead to a shipment of ten to fifteen 300 kilogram samples to Met-Solve Laboratories Inc. in Vancouver, B.C. in January 2013.

The bulk sample location was modified as part of the Company's periodic re-evaluation of mine design. As previously announced, the plan incorporated additional development to provide for improved sample quality. The bulk sample will consist of approximately 30 metres of development through the mineralized deposit to extract approximately 1,500 tonnes of material.

Ground conditions are good and ground water flow into the mine remains manageable. Development of this secondary access point will continue and management expects extraction and sampling of the bulk sample to be complete within the next three weeks.

Claudio Mancuso, Chief Executive Officer commented, "This day has been a long time coming and is the culmination of almost two years of hard work. We are pleased to be entering a mineralized zone. I would like to congratulate all of our employees for achieving this important milestone."

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

Forward-looking statements in this press release include statements regarding the timing and nature of future exploration and development programs that are dependent on projections that may change as drilling continues, or if unexpected ground conditions are encountered. The Company does not currently have any mineral properties that are in production or that contain a reserve as defined by National Instrument 43-101. In addition, areas of exploration potential are identified which will require additional drilling to determine whether or not they contain similar mineralization to areas that have been explored in more detail. Significant additional drilling is required at Serra Pelada to fully understand system size.

Except for statements of historical fact relating to Colossus, certain statements in this press release relating but not limited to the Company's exploration and development plans, activities and intentions, constitute "forward-looking information" within the meaning of the Securities Act (Ontario) or "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the United States Private Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management at the date the statements are made, and are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. The factors include but are not limited to risks related to the joint venture operation, actual results of exploration activities, the inherent risks involved in the exploration and development of mineral properties, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined, delays in obtaining government approvals, the uncertainties of project cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, uncertainties relating to the availability and costs of financing needed in the future, the uncertainties inherent to conducting business in Brazil and the rest of Latin America, the availability of equipment and supplies, unexpected adverse climate conditions, the reliance on only a few key members of management, as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's most recent Annual Information Form filed with Canadian provincial securities regulatory authorities and other regulatory filings which are posted on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
