Project Update

The Company is focused on resolving its longstanding legal challenges in Ukraine and acquiring land essential for the Shymanivske project development while simultaneously conducting due diligence on new high potential assets for acquisition, preferably in the precious metals space.

It is management's belief that the currently depressed global mining and metals market continue to present an opportunity to acquire a quality distressed asset that can be put into production during the timeframe of metal prices recovering to generate an attractive return for investors. Black Iron recently invested in Carpathian Gold Inc. (now known as Euro Sun Mining Inc.), which owns a Romanian gold and copper project, which it believes represents substantial value for Black Iron shareholders. Black Iron senior management are currently reviewing several other assets with the aim of acquiring control of a high quality project that it will fully manage. The Company is currently engaged in preliminary discussions with several companies in respect of their producing or quality development projects but there is no guarantee that any of these projects will be acquired.

About Black Iron

Black Iron is an iron ore exploration and development company, advancing its 100% owned Shymanivske project located in Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine.
