Black Iron Reports Three Additional Infill Drill Holes at Shymanivske





Assay Results from Holes BISH-31, BISH-33, and BISH-35 Continue to Confirm Iron Content and Band Lengths in the Mineral Resource –

All Three Holes Intersected Iron Bands Exceeding 50 Meters With Material Grading in Excess of 32% Iron – BISH-31 Intersected 60.2 Meters Grading 35.2% Iron and 141.0 Meters Grading 32.3% Iron, Including 95.0 Meters Grading 33.3% Iron


Black Iron Inc. (TSX:BKI)(FRANKFURT:BIN) report additional assay results from its definition and explorationĀ  diamond drill program at the Company\’s Shymanivske Iron Ore Project in Ukraine. The Company continues to be encouraged by the results of the infill drilling and the intersection of thick iron bands, exceeding 50 meters, in each hole with grades continuing to exceed 30% total iron. Of note, hole BISH-31 intersected 60.2 meters grading 35.2% iron and 141.0 meters grading 32.3% iron, including 95.0 meters grading 33.3% iron.


The three drill holes (BISH-31, BISH-33, and BISH-35, highlighted on the map below) are part of a 12,000 meter definition and exploration drill program conducted by the Company between July 2011 and December 2011. The DE program drilling will result in a portion of the resource previously classified as inferred moving into the measured and indicated category in the next 43-101 compliant resource report. The drill program was conducted by Ukraine-based GeoResources under the direction of Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited, Consulting Geologists and Engineers, of Toronto, Canada, who ensure all field and laboratory work is conducted in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 standards and best practices guidelines. Ukraine-based Mekhanobrchermet (Research Institute of Mineral Processing in Ferrous Metals) completed the independent metallurgical test work on the recovered drill core.
