Irwin Energy, Inc. Corporate Update

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 29, 2005 -- Irwin Energy, Inc. (OTC: IWNN) (the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its undivided 20% working interest in the Concho Dome leasehold, within the Holbrook Basin in Apache County, Arizona.

Concho Dome, one of the main anticlines in the Holbrook Basin, encompasses some 16,250 acres. This area presents a multitude of opportunities for multi zone productive capabilities, year-round access to drilling locations, and low operational costs due to the shallow geological structure. The Concho Dome area is large enough to hold substantial reserves of one hundred million barrels of oil and 2.1 trillion cubic feet of gas.

The Concho Dome prospect has the potential to produce from at least five (5) Paleozoic formations with excellent reservoir quality rock (prospective pay zones). The primary objectives are: the Pennsylvanian Naco limestone, the Devonian Martin dolomite, the Devonian McKracken sandstone, the Permian Coconino, and the Permian Supai which contains very porous dolomites and sandstone.

The total land package of the Concho Dome project comprises some 10,021.47 acres (one section or one quarter mile equals 640 acres). Primary drilling spacing in Arizona is as follows: one quarter section spacing (80 acres) for oil; and one section spacing (640 acres) for natural gas.
