Ironwood Gold to Proceed With 18-Hole, 6000m Drill Program at Falcon Property, Carlin Trend, Nevada

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2012) - Ironwood Gold Corp. (OTCBB: IROG) ("Ironwood" or the "Company") wishes to advise of plans to proceed with an 18-hole, 6000 meter drilling program after receiving a favorable assessment from Snowden Mining Industry Consultants Inc. ("Snowden"). The Company is pleased to announce that Snowden successfully completed its 2011 fieldwork and geophysical surveys enabling the completion and delivery of an in-depth Preliminary Assessment on the company's Falcon Mine gold prospect.

Based on the results from surface mapping, sampling and a geophysical program, Snowden has identified a number of significant mineralization targets that are recommended as warranting a follow up exploration drilling program. Snowden strongly recommends that the proposed models be tested with a next phase of exploration drilling. The exploration work completed to-date suggests that the Falcon mine property has potential to host three types of economic mineralization. These are:

1. Shallow volcanic hosted, low sulphidation, low grade mineralization (open pit).

2. Deeper, volcanic hosted, Midas-type, low sulphidation high grade mineralization (underground).

3. Deeper, sediment hosted, Meikle-type high grade mineralization (underground).

Murray Lytle, P.Eng Divisional Manager of Snowden Mining Industry Consultants, stated, "Snowden commenced the Falcon mine exploration project to find indicators for Carlin-type mineralization. The geophysical and sampling efforts undertaken have resulted in very strong, coincident anomalies (geophysics, soil analysis and rock chip sampling), which support models for three different mineralization styles including potential for sediment-hosted gold mineralization. The highly anomalous soil sampling grades were particularly encouraging. Snowden has identified 18 drill-hole targets and strongly recommend a next phase of exploration to test the subsurface mineralization of the coincident anomalies and is optimistic about the potential for exploration success."

Ironwood is in the process of appointing a drilling contractor in conjunction with Snowden as consultants. We plan to commence drilling once favorable weather conditions persist.

Ironwood's CEO, Bezhad Shayanfar, states, "We are delighted with the results from our efforts on the ground. Furthermore we are actively engaging a number of resource-focused potential investors with the view to fund both the current exploration program at the Falcon Mine and potential future acquisitions."

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.
