Ironwood Gold Engages Snowden Exploration to Commence Field Work at Falcon Gold Property, Carlin Trend, Nevada

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - Ironwood Gold Corp. (OTCBB: IROG) ("Ironwood" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Snowden Mining Industry Consultants Inc. (Snowden) has commenced the 2011 field exploration program on the company's Falcon Mine property located in the Carlin Trend area of Nevada, USA.

Snowden has reviewed all available historic documentation and data on the Falcon property. The first stage of the fieldwork will involve Snowden initiating detailed mapping of the area together with soil and rock-chip sampling. The results of the mapping and sampling will be used to develop a follow up gravity and IP geophysical program aimed at identifying subsurface mineralization.

Results of this initial program are expected by November 2011 and are focused on locating prime drill sites for subsequent testing for a potential Carlin-type gold horizon. Once the target sites have been identified, the company will begin a diamond drill program with the intent to confirm the mineralization potential within the localized geological model.

Commenting on the program, Ironwood's CEO, Bezhad Shayanfar, stated, "Once we initiate the field work we will be one step closer to identifying indicators of a Carlin-type mineral occurrence. We are excited to be working with Snowden who offer a proven record of exploration with junior miners and are enthusiastically looking forward to ultimately achieving positive results from the proposed drill program."

The Falcon Mine property is located in an area bordered by claims held by major global mining operators at the northern end of the Carlin Trend gold belt, the most prolific gold producing area in the USA and the 2nd most productive gold region in the world. The property is described in detail here:

Ironwood has the right to earn a 50% interest through its staged investment on the property which is located near the confluence of Rock Creek and Dry Creek on the west side of Nevada's Tuscarora Mountains approximately 15 miles from the mining town of Midas. The Falcon mine was discovered over 100 years ago and remained relatively unproductive because gravity or amalgamation separation processes were never employed and the area at that time was far from rail access to a smelter.

A silver deposit was discovered in 1876 and initially two 300-foot shafts called the Falcon and Scorpion were sunk to access the high grade silver vein. By 1901 over $10 million in gold and silver ore had been produced from the mine. In 1965 the mine owner at the time produced a 30 lb. vein sample that assayed at 1403 g/t silver (94.3% recovery) and 0.3 g/t gold. The ore had accessory arsenic and antimony mineralization commonly associated with gold mineralization. The mine has never been tested at depth.
