Black Iron to Participate in PDAC 2012 (Booth #2527)

03/01/2012


TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 1, 2012) - Black Iron Inc. ("Black Iron" or the "Company") (TSX:BKI)(FRANKFURT:BIN) will be exhibiting at this year's Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada ("PDAC") Investors Exchange taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building, from Sunday, March 4th to Wednesday, March 7th, 2012.

The team from Black Iron, including Matt Simpson, President & CEO, Paul Bozoki, CFO, Aaron Wolfe, VP Corporate Development, and representatives from Investor Cubed Inc., Black Iron's investor relations team, will be available to speak to shareholders and interested investors about the Company's developments at its flagship Shymanivske Iron Ore Project in Kryviy Rih, Ukraine, including the results of a robust Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") filed for the project in December 2011. The PEA outlines an operation producing 7.3 million tonne per year of 67% iron ore pellet plant feed, projecting a 42.1% internal rate of return ("IRR") and a $3.0 billion net present value ("NPV") at an 8% discount rate. The PEA also outlines Black Iron's option to produce 7.6 million tonnes per year of 65% pellets, which generates a much higher NPV of $4.1 billion, along with a reduced IRR of 35.2%, due to higher construction costs. All-in-all, Black Iron benefits from favourable operating conditions in Ukraine including access to all the required infrastructure for a successful iron ore producer: skilled labour, rail, port, and power.
