Central Iron Ore Ltd.: Completion of Helimag Aerial Survey Over Perinvale South Iron Ore Hub

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 22, 2011) -


Central Iron Ore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CIO) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of a Helimag and radiometric aerial survey flown over its Perinvale South Iron Ore Hub.

The survey was flown over E30/414 for a total of 917 line kilometres on a spacing of 100m. The data revealed several magnetic anomalies with a combined strike length in excess of 12km. This data is currently being processed and reviewed by an independent geophysical consulting firm. The results will be used to develop exploration drilling targets and are expected during the next quarter.

Yilgarn Iron Ore Project Area

The Company has a total of 10 tenements covering 652km2 (refer to table below) that are located within the Yilgarn Iron Ore Province. The Yilgarn Iron Ore Province is considered highly prospective, given its history of large-scale iron ore production, with the Cliffs Natural Resources Inc.-owned Koolyanobbing operation (also formerly operated by Portman Limited) currently producing at a rate of about 8Mtpa of direct shipping ore ("DSO"). The Yilgarn Iron Ore Province is increasingly being recognised as an attractive location for the development of iron ore projects, given its proximity to rail and access to ports.

The Company believes its greater Yilgarn Iron Ore Project tenement package provides a significant platform for the exploration for iron ore and will provide a significant, new future phase of growth for the Company.

The initial strategy and objective of the Company is to evaluate the occurrence of both magnetite ore and DSO within the below tenements to gain an initial understanding of their respective resource potential. The initial area of focus for the Company is its Perinvale South Iron Ore Hub.

Mr Brett Hodgins, President and CEO, said, "We are extremely pleased by the progress of the geophysical and field mapping activities. These combined exploration activities will allow for target generation and further exploration activities during the next quarter on the Perinvale South Iron Ore Hub. This reinforces CIO's strategy to identify sufficient DSO resources to support a start up project."
