Itronics Receives GOLD'n GRO Guardian Deer Repellent Registration From the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
RENO, NV--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - Itronics Inc. (OTCBB: ITRO) (FRANKFURT: ITG)
(BERLIN: ITG) today reported that its wholly owned subsidiary Itronics
Metallurgical, Inc. has received label registration for GOLD'n GRO Guardian
deer repellent from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
With notification of registration of GOLD'n GRO Guardian deer repellent,
registration statements will be filed in Nevada and Northeastern states
where the Company plans to start marketing the deer repellent. Plans are
being implemented for manufacturing, marketing, and sales launch in May,
"Receipt of this bio-pesticide label registration is the result of several
years of intensive, successful product development," said Dr. John Whitney,
Itronics President. "This opens another important avenue for internally
generated growth for Itronics, and represents a significant extension of
the Company's proprietary GOLD'n GRO nutrient delivery technology."
The GOLD'n GRO Guardian registration, manufacturing, and sales will expand
the GOLD'n GRO brand into another important market segment, which is
expected to further broaden the customer base and increase the rate of
sales growth. Earlier this year the Company completed a detailed deer
damage study which indicates that deer damage in suburban America is in the
$5 billion range and that sales of its GOLD'n GRO Guardian deer repellent
could top $200 million annually.
Itronics' continuing expansion is a result of years of research and
development that has made its innovative vertically integrated
photochemical recycling technology that completely converts the waste
stream to pure silver, and its high quality GOLD'n GRO brand of
environmentally compatible fertilizers a success.
Itronics, through its subsidiary, Itronics Metallurgical, Inc., is the only
company in the world with a fully permitted "Beneficial Use Photochemical,
Silver, and Water Recycling" plant located in the United States which can
convert used photoliquids into pure silver and liquid fertilizers. At the
Company's Reno, Nevada factory more than 99 percent of the silver and
virtually all the other toxic heavy metals are extracted from used
photoliquids. The purified liquids are converted into environmentally
beneficial, chelated, micronutrient and multinutrient liquid fertilizers
sold under the GOLD'n GRO trademark. The silver is refined and sold as
bullion and 5 troy ounce, 0.999 pure, Silver Nevada Miner numismatic
bars. The environmentally friendly liquid
fertilizers can be used for lawns and houseplants, and are available, along
with GOLD'n GRO liquid fertilizer injectors, at the Company's "e-store"
catalog at http://goldngro.com. The popular Silver Nevada Miner bars are
available at the Company's "e-store" catalog at http://www.itromet.com.
Headquartered in Reno, Nevada, Itronics Inc. is a "Creative Environmental
Technology" company and a world leader in photochemical recycling. The
Company also provides mine development services to the
Gold mining industry and operates the popular InsideMetals.com
web site, http://www.insidemetals.com.
Which provides a value-added WORLD VIEW of Gold Producer Stocks and Junior
Gold Stocks. Itronics has received numerous domestic and international
awards that recognize its ability to successfully create and implement new
recycling and fertilizer technologies.
