Clear Hills, Alberta Iron & Vanadium Project

Alberta, Sep 18, 2013 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Ironstone Resources Ltd., a private Alberta-based minerals exploration and development company, is focused on commercial development of its iron and vanadium polymetallic deposit in Clear Hills, Alberta, situated approximately 500kms northwest of Edmonton.

The project features a large 557mt compliant resource, excellent infrastructure, and short shipping times to Asian markets.

New process technology has been developed with Hatch to commercialize not only this deposit, but similar deposits worldwide. The Clear Hills iron and vanadium deposit represents one of Canada's premier undeveloped mineral assets.

Clear Hills, Alberta Iron & Vanadium Project

The Clear Hills, Alberta iron and vanadium project area encompasses 190,000 hectares of permits and leases in one of the world's best mining jurisdictions. Ironstone has diamond cored 230 holes in several drilling programs, and has brought the deposit into NI 43-101 compliance.

SRK Consulting (Canada) Ltd. has reported indicated resources of 557mt with an average grade of 33% Fe and 0.20% V2O5 in its technical resource report of July 2012. The Clear Hills represents one of the largest compliant resources of vanadium pentoxide in the world (2.45 billion pounds).

Annual production of 2.5 million tonnes high-value hot briquetted iron will be sold to the alternative iron unit and scrap metal markets for use in steelmaking, with vanadium pentoxide targeted to the emerging battery storage market.

Ironstone, in conjunction with HATCH, has developed an enhanced direct reduced iron and segregation technology, originally developed on a lab scale by the Alberta Research Council, for beneficiating ubiquitous oolitic ironstones into iron metallics and extracting by-products such as vanadium pentoxide and other economic minerals.


- attract a major international resource company as a development partner
- complete iron process metallurgy in 2013, vanadium in 2014
- construct and operate Clear Hills demonstration pilot plant (2014-15)
- definitive feasibility study targeted in 2015
- secure off-take contracts for iron and vanadium products
