Ironwood Gold to Commence Survey of Haystack Property in Nevada

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - May 19, 2010) -  Ironwood Gold Corp. (OTCBB: IROG) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of survey efforts at the Haystack Property in Pershing County, Nevada.

This week, Carlin Trend Mining Services begins the survey of a North-South grid on the Haystack gold claims. Dr. Howard Lahti, VP of Exploration for Ironwood Gold and Brian Bond, an independent geologist, will be in the field advising Carlin Trend Services regarding sampling locations and to identify transported surface material where deep penetrating MMI (Mobile Metal Ion) soil sampling will be used.

Based on historic exploration, Gold mineralization on the Haystack property occurs within < 1 m wide, north-south trending quartz veins with shallow to moderate dips to the east. Surface rock chip samples range up to 23 g/t Au. Other assay highlights include underground data and grab samples of up to 130 g/t Au and 3.8 g/t Au over 3.0 m from a 2004 drill hole. Where veins are closely spaced, significant widths of mineralization can occur (e.g. 9 m grading 5.8 g/t Au).

Concurrently, an Ironwood geologist will map the property identifying alteration zones, structures and gold bearing quartz vein systems (Fort Knox Type deposits) in intrusive bodies. The property was previously visited by Ironwood Director Rodney Blakestad who assisted in the Fort Knox discovery. Some of his samples identified narrow quartz with more than 2 gm of gold considered to be very anomalous. These results are considered positive in indicating possible Fort Knox type gold mineralization. Once all of the data has been received and interpreted drill holes will be spotted and drilling will commence.

The Haystack property is located approximately 70 km west of Winnemucca. Sixty federal mining claims of the Solo group cover 1,110 acres (450 ha). Gold-bearing quartz veins hosted in granodiorite were discovered in 1914 in the district. Evidence from historic underground mining of these veins, grading approximately one ounce per ton, attests to the presence of a mineralized system.

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:
