At the request of IIROC, Alderon Resource Corp. (TSX-V: ADV) is issuing a clarification regarding the quantified drill target stated in its previous news release dated June 2, 2010. The 20,000 metre drill program is designed to outline a potential of 400-500 million tonnes at a grade between 28-34% iron ore in two zones based on historical drilling carried out in 2008. The potential tonnage and grade are conceptual in nature and it is uncertain if further exploration will delineate a mineral resource.
