For Immediate Release
TORONTO, CANADA, January 12, 2021 – Black Iron Inc. (“Black Iron” or the “Company”) (TSX: BKI; OTC: BKIRF; FWB: BIN) is pleased to announce that Black Iron management will be hosting a web-based presentation for current and future potential shareholders on January 19TH at 10am to provide an overview of the Company and its exciting plans for 2021. People interested to attend this session can sign up on Black Iron’s website www.blackiron.com/registration/ post which you will receive a video and phone number to access the event that you need to save.
Iron ore had the greatest price appreciation of any mainstream commodity in 2020, largely due to governments globally spending hundreds of millions on infrastructure projects to get people back to work and stimulate the economy. Black Iron is a low-cost undeveloped iron ore project on the brink of securing financing for construction with several major milestones targeted for this coming year, which will be covered during this presentation.
Given substantial recent developments including a US$100 million royalty, progress with off take parties and increased public enquiries received, management has decided to conduct a 45-minute web-based presentation followed by a question period for attendees.
Matt Simpson, CEO of Black Iron, stated: “2021 is shaping up to be a pivotal year for Black Iron as we look to move the financing and land acquisition matters, which were well advanced in 2020, to a head with binding agreements. Given Black Iron’s share price appreciation, we have received a substantial increase in public enquiries and feel this is a great time and opportunity to tell our story, explain what investors can expect for 2021, and answer any questions people may have. These types of presentations are generally only available to institutional investors or those who pay to attend conferences, however we believe anyone who wishes to learn more about Black Iron should have the ability to do so.”
