Calais Resources, Inc. (“Calais” or the “Company”) (Pink Sheets: CAAUF), a development stage mineral exploration company, would like to take this opportunity to update our shareholders and the market on recent developments for the Company.

Calais is pleased to announce the appointment of Brent E. Timmons as the new Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer for the Company. Mr. Timmons, a Certified Public Accountant, has an extensive background in accounting, finance, regulatory compliance and accounting requirements for US GAAP, Canadian GAAP and the new IFRS filing requirements for mining companies.

Mr. Timmons graduated from Brigham Young University with a Master of Accountancy.

Calais would also like to announce that the Company has negotiated an additional extension to its loan agreement with Brigus Gold Corp. (“Brigus Gold”), which loan is secured by the Company’s Colorado assets. A payment of US$200,000 was made towards the accrued interest owing towards the loan with the maturity date of the loan extended until December 1, 2011 when the current full principal and interest amount of approximately US$10,400,000 together with outstanding interest thereon becomes due.

In commenting on the recent activities of the Company, R. David Russell, Chairman and CEO stated, “We have made significant progress towards completing our financial filings to bring the Company into compliance with its reporting requirements. The note extension with Brigus Gold will assist the Company in its financial restructuring. The addition of Brent Timmons as our new CFO to the Calais management team will assist the Company in meeting its corporate accounting and internal controls and complying with the Company’s reporting requirements. I appreciate the continued confidence of our recent investors as well as the long term shareholders of the Company.”
