Itronics Projects 100 Percent Increase in 2009 Fourth Quarter GOLD'n GRO Fertilizer Sales

Itronics' Environmentally Green Technologies Driving Strong Growth

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - Itronics Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ITRO) (FRANKFURT: ITG) (BERLIN: ITG) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Itronics Metallurgical, Inc., is reporting that GOLD'n GRO fertilizer sales in the fourth quarter through November 30, plus its December orders, exceed total fertilizer sales in the fourth quarter of 2008 by more than 100 percent.

GOLD'n GRO fertilizer sales for the fourth quarter of 2009 are projected to exceed $440,000, an approximate 101 percent increase over fourth quarter 2008 sales of $219,000. "This will be the best December, and the best fourth quarter, for fertilizer sales in the Company's history," said Dr. John Whitney, Itronics President.

"Doubling of fourth quarter sales indicates the effectiveness of our fertilizer. This strong growth in demand for the GOLD'n GRO fertilizers is occurring even while California farming, our largest customer base, is negatively affected by water shortages," said Dr. Whitney. "We expect to continue this strong upward fertilizer sales trend in California, and elsewhere, in 2010."

Itronics, through its subsidiary Itronics Metallurgical, is the inventor and operator of award winning recycling technology that converts spent photographic liquids into pure silver and GOLD'n GRO fertilizers. Commercialization of this technology has created a "Green Consumer Option" for photo and X-ray processors and "Green fertilizers" for horticulture and agriculture. The fertilizers incorporate the "essence" of green because of how they are sourced and because of their excellent performance in the field.
