(the "Company" or "AEI") (TSX VENTURE:AXI)(FRANKFURT:AE6) is very pleased to announce that Bernie Swarbrick has joined the AEI team as Vice President, Capital Projects & Studies. The Company believes that Mr. Swarbrick's recognized experience and achievements in the mining industry will provide great benefits to executing our development plans. This position was created in order to provide a seamless transition from an AEI specific plan to a collaborative growth strategy to implement the previously announced (September 27, 2010) partnership agenda with XinXing Pipes Group Co.

"We were exceptionally pleased to have someone of Bernie's caliber join the AEI Board more than two years ago. The Company finds itself once again very proud that Bernie has recognized AEI's future potential and has chosen to join the AEI Management Team committing 100% of his time and expertise to the Company's future. Bernie's role is to lead the proposed joint AEI-XXP strategic partnership team to focus on realizing mutual development objectives for the Roche Bay Iron Ore Project. Bernie brings a wealth of Northern experience and knowledge needed to effectively plan and execute the joint vision".

Prior to joining the Management Team of AEI, Bernie was a senior manager within major capital projects of a global mining firm, fulfilled similar roles within an EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Management) environment, and oversaw the integration of environmental and social components into engineering. Bernie brings a broad understanding of capital projects from early exploration through to feasibility and execution. He will be a key part of developing our Roche Bay Project, as well as other ongoing efforts such as the Company's Tuktu Project. Bernie brings 23 years of mining and environmental experience to our management team with a working knowledge of port development, logistics, infrastructure, environmental, and community issues.

His experience in the Canadian North (Raglan) will be of particular value in the development of the Roche Bay Project and in the Company's discussions with direct stakeholders such as local communities, government agencies and environmental interests groups. In addition, Bernie brings other Canadian and International project experience (Australia, New Caledonia, Chile, and Madagascar).
