About Ferro Iron Ore Corp.:
As announced on November 6, 2012, Ferro Iron Ore Corp. (formally, Galena Capital Corp.) recently secured the right to acquire a highly prospective Mongolian Iron ore exploration license (No. 14491X) (the "Exploration License"). The Exploration License is located in North Central Mongolia in the heart of a proven mineralization corridor contiguous to the largest operating iron mine (Eruu Gol Mine) in the country with rail, road, power and water in very close proximity. It is along strike with other significant exploration projects including the Haranga Bayantsogt, Tumur Tolgoi and Tumurtei deposits. The licensed area is roughly 1000km from steel mills in Northern China accessible by the railway, with surplus capacity, running in front of the property. Although the company awaits completion of a 43-101 technical report, two historical diamond drill holes show significant iron intercepts including 59% Fe over 55.2 metres from 10.8 metres below surface. There is also surface exposure of branded iron skarn in trenching. The company looks to supply inland steel mills in northern China currently utilizing either very high cost domestic ores or expensive imported ores railed hundreds of kilometers from port given the significant grade and logistics cost advantages.
ON BEHALF OF FERRO IRON ORE CORP.
