Itronics Announces California Registration of New GOLD'n GRO Liquid Fertilizer

Iron Man Z Part of Successful, Environmentally Green, Clean Technology

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - October 22, 2009) - Itronics Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ITRO) (FRANKFURT: ITG) (BERLIN: ITG) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Itronics Metallurgical, Inc., has been informed by its distributor that GOLD'n GRO 9-0-0 Iron Man Z has been registered for sale in California, the Company's largest market.

GOLD'n GRO 9-0-0 Iron Man Z is a Chelated multi-micro-nutrient liquid fertilizer that contains 3 percent Sulfur, 2.6 percent Chelated Iron, 1 percent Chelated Manganese, and 0.5 percent Chelated Zinc. The fertilizer is for use on turf, ornamentals, wine, table and raisin grapes, and field crops including cereal grains, fruit and nut trees, citrus and avocados.

Addition of this fertilizer to the GOLD'n GRO line of Chelated micro-nutrients fills a nutrient gap. It was created as a result of customer requests for such a product. The GOLD'n GRO fertilizer line now includes a total of 13 liquid micro-nutrient and multi-nutrient fertilizers.

Itronics Metallurgical has become an important western U.S. manufacturer of "Chelated Nutrient Metal" micro-nutrient fertilizers. It now offers seven micro-nutrient fertilizers, with sales currently dominated by four of these: (1) GOLD'n GRO 9-0-1+7% Zn, (2) GOLD'n GRO 9-0-2+3% Zn multi-micro mix, (3) GOLD'n GRO 10-0-0 +4% Fe, and (4) GOLD'n GRO 10-0-1+3% Mn. GOLD'n GRO 9-0-0 Iron Man Z is expected to join this list over the next several years as it is introduced into the market.
