Ironwood Gold Corp. Receives Favorable Independent 43-101 Report of Rock Creek Property Located in the Carlin Trend, Nevada

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  Ironwood Gold Corp. (OTCBB: IROG) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the receipt of an assessment undertaken by Crosby Consulting & Exploration Services of the recently acquired Rock Creek project in the form of a National Instrument (N.I.) 43-101 compliant report detailing the potential of the asset.

The report 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. This is exemplified by the Jerritt Canyon gold deposit (10-25 million ounces) owned by Yukon Nevada Gold due east of the Rock Creek property and the Anglo Gold Property (2-5 million ounces) located just to the north of Jerritt Canyon.

The author of the report is Russell Crosby, M.Sc, P.Geo., a qualified person under the definitions established by N.I. 43-101 and a highly experienced Mineral Geologist familiar with the region. Mr. Crosby's career has included service as a mineral geologist with Canadian Pacific, Anaconda Canada Ltd., International Nickel Company Limited, Shell Oil Company, Bedford Institute of Oceanography, and various government endeavors spanning his 40 year career.

Mr. Crosby's efforts focused on the Rock Creek project located in the north end of the well known Carlin Trend, Nevada's largest gold deposit, which has produced over 50 million ounces of gold to-date. This is more gold than all of California ever produced and production has grown exponentially to becoming the second richest gold district in the world, second only to Witwatersrand, South Africa.

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 extraordinarily favorable.

Company President Robert Reukl states, "The team led by Russell Crosby visited the claims in order to undertake the requisite field sampling and survey of the property. Their analysis and highly favorable report provide the recommendations and impetus to rapidly further our development plans for 2010."
