Sunday, October 24, 2010
TOWNSVILLE, Australia, October 25, 2010 - Queensland based explorer Iron Glen Holdings Limited is pleased to
announce that the initial drilling program of its Iron Ore tenement, located
in Townsville, Queensland, has successfully delineated a Magnetite resource.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE DRILLING PROGRAM
- Eleven holes have been drilled, with magnetite intersections in the first nine and the eleventh holes, ranging from a thickness of 14 meters to 33 meters. - The drill holes extend from approximately 30 meters south of the old pit area, along its eastern boundary to a position 495 meters to the northwest.
In addition to magnetite intersections, the Drilling Program has also
intersected gold and copper bearing mineralization. The potential of these
intersections cannot be assessed until assay results have been received. The
Directors of Iron Glen anticipate that Terra Search Pty Ltd will issue a full
report during November 2010 and following this, Iron Glen will report on
their conclusions in detail.
In commenting on the soon to be completed Drilling Program, Patrick
Griffiths, Executive Director of Iron Glen Holdings, said, "We are very
pleased to be nearing completion of our initial Drilling Program and to be on

fully quantify this resource and assess the potential of the other 4 areas of
interest within our tenement."
"The initial results from the Drilling Program are more promising than
first anticipated. In addition to the magnetite intersections the Drilling
Program also intersected gold and copper bearing mineralization. Whilst the
significance of these intersections cannot be assessed until assay results
have been received, these are exciting discoveries that we will further
