Ironwood Gold to Commence Detailed Sampling at Rock Creek Property in Carlin Trend Region of Nevada

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - September 20, 2010) -  Ironwood Gold Corp. (OTCBB: IROG) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that Carlin Trend Geological Services will shortly commence a systematic soil sampling program on the Company's Rock Creek Bluto and Dry Creek Claims in the Carlin Trend.

The 1,640 acre Rock Creek property consists of 82 unpatented U.S. federal mining claims in the Tuscarora Mountains of northern Nevada, 85 km NW of Elko, Nevada. The Tuscarora Mountains host the northern end of Carlin-trend mineralization in an area known as Carlin North which is situated within a zone of "world class" gold endowment where the potential of finding a large, high-grade, gold mine is very favorable.

The object of the program is to identify gold and silver anomalies with a possible deep source. Therefore the program will use the MMI (Mobile Metal Ion) and the SGS soil gas methods. Both approaches have a track record of identifying gold and other elements with apical or proximal anomalies overlying exotic soil or rock cover. Large parts of the Rock Creek claims are covered by young volcanic rocks that would prevent the efficient use of a conventional soil sampling survey.

The Company has secured an independent 3rd party National Instrument (N.I.) 43-101 compliant report detailing the potential of the asset which indicates that Rock Creek, with its geographical, geological and structural setting, provides clear indications of gold with the capability to host a 1 - 5 million ounce deposit with the potential of greater than 5 million ounces.

Dr. Howard Lahti, Ironwood's VP of Exploration, comments, "The soil sampling survey will start at about the middle of the Bluto claims and move southward past old DDH CC-02 which stopped in low grade gold mineralization and onto the Dry claims which are adjacent to the past producing Falcon and Scorpion Mines." Dr. Lahti further stated, "This area of the Rock Creek property has the best potential to host a Carlin Trend type gold mineralization."

To assist in target identification, geophysical companies have been contacted to organize an IP survey over the same area. The object is to have this survey completed before drilling commences, which is anticipated this fall.

Additional details regarding the Company and its agreements are filed as part of the Company's continuous public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") EDGAR database. For more information visit:
