About Ferrum Americas Mining

Ferrum Americas is focused on developing iron ore projects in the Americas. The Company is targeting high quality deposits that have access to existing transportation infrastructure and have relatively simple beneficiation processing requirements.

Ferrum Americas has rights to acquire a 98% interest in the Cerro Rojo iron ore project in Bolivia. Located 600 kilometres east of Santa Cruz and approximately 55 kilometres from Puerto Suarez and the Hidrovia river system near Corumba, Brazil, Cerro Rojo is a large banded iron formation striking for more than 4 kilometres, according to reports prepared by Rio Tinto in 1999 and verified by Ferrum.

A NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate, prepared by P&E Mining Consultants Inc., includes Indicated resources of 111.0 million tonnes at 48.1% Fe and Inferred resources of 175.9 million tonnes grading 48.8% Fe at a 15% iron cut-off grade.

At a cut-off grade of 50% Fe, Indicated resources are 31.2 million tonnes at 51.5% Fe and Inferred resources are 63.0 million tonnes at 52.0% Fe. The NI-43-101 Technical Report is available at www.ferrumamericas.com.

Ferrum is also evaluating other iron ore opportunities within Bolivia and in neighbouring jurisdictions, where the criteria of low capital costs and simple processing are also met.
