In a press release issued October 27, 2009, Itronics Metallurgical, Inc. reported that October GOLD'n GRO fertilizer orders now exceed total sales in the fourth quarter 2008 by 33 percent. Today Itronics Metallurgical is announcing that it has obtained a short term loan to fund the purchase of fertilizer ingredients needed to fill the sharp increase in orders.

"This year the fall season is very short, but is expected to continue into mid December in California, which has had some rain recently. This funding is excellent news for the Company and its investors."
