Sydney, July 19, 2011 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Iron Road Limited (Iron Road, ASX: IRD) is pleased to advise that Stage VI drilling at the Central Eyre Iron Project (CEIP) continues to proceed to plan.

CEIP Summary

- The Stage VI drilling programme investigates the western extension of Murphy South.
- Four rigs drilling diamond tails, with selected holes being extended into the footwall for geotechnical measurements.
- Full and partial traverses completed to date confirm the extension of Murphy South to the west of the Stage V drilling programme.
- Programme on track to define a mineral resource estimate of considerable size and tonnage additional to the current 1.01Bt identified at Murphy South.

Progress to date
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hole Type                    Metres Completed (m) Holes Completed (No.)
RC (pre-collar- all complete)     5,078                63
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Diamond (tail)                   11,284                38
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The exploration target for Murphy South (western extension), across the 10 traverses designed for the Stage VI drilling programme, is 500-800Mt magnetite gneiss.

The Stage VI drilling programme comprises 64 diamond drill holes for over 25,000m. Cross-sections of traverses A, E and F can be obtained from the full document in the link below. The geology intersected in all traverses thus far is consistent with interpretations from inversion modelling of detailed, high resolution aeromagnetic surveys.
