Update on the Drill Program for the El Creston Property

VANCOUVER, BC – SIERRA IRON ORE CORPORATION (the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the drill program for the El Creston property.

Based on the results from the RC scout drill program that were issued on the company’s press release on October 11, 2011, the company has been preparing drill targets for the coming core drill program. The company expects drilling to commence in the current quarter with partial drill results to be released in the first quarter of 2012.

The core drill program will augment and verify the results of the previous RC drill program and more importantly it will define the geometry and grade of each magnetite body in preparation for resource estimates.

“We are very excited to commence the core drill program on the El Creston property and we look forward to establishing the required parameters for resource definition,” stated Wally Boguski, President and CEO.
