Morgan Hill project produces excellent targets

July 13, 2009

RENO, NV, July 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ – Infrastructure Materials Corp (NASDAQ OTC-BB: Symbol IFAM) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from the first 4 holes of a 24 drill hole program (7,000 ft) completed on the Morgan Hill Limestone Project. The property contains 113 mineral claims covering approximately 3 square miles and located 20 miles west of Wells, Nevada in Elko County.

The drill program of 24 reverse circulation holes was designed to evaluate three target areas that had been identified from surface mapping and sampling. Our objective was to locate one or more areas on the property with potential for open pit development of cement grade limestone to support a cement plant for long term production. The assay results from the first 4 drill holes are set out below.

These holes are located in the southern part of the claim group. Compilation of drill cross sections and new detailed surface geology indicate a potential high grade (100% CaCo3) zone along strike to the southwest and down dip to the northwest. Approximate dimensions of this target area from our recent detailed surface geology indicate a possible zone 1500 feet long by 1000 feet wide and 100 feet thick. Additional drilling is planned that may identify a substantial resource in this part of the property.

Hole MHR 1 from 10 feet below surface was assayed in five foot intervals. From 10 feet to 90 feet all assays were 100% CaCO3 with the exception of four 5 foot intervals that assayed at 98.5%, 98%, 99.6 and 98.6% CaCO3 giving an average grade over 80 feet of 99.7% CaCO3. The hole bottomed at 300 feet but encountered significant magnesium levels below the 90 foot level.

Hole MHR 2 was also assayed in 5 foot intervals and carried grades from 85.29% to 100% CaCO3 and averaged 97.79% over the 150 feet with the exception of four five foot intervals not included in the average that carried high magnesium levels. It is not expected that this limited amount of magnesium will be significant or effect the overall development of the resource.

The results from holes MHR 3 and 4 generally carried sub economic zones that did not meet the required grade for cement limestone or were suitable for open pit mining.

Compilation of the cross sections are being prepared and detail geology has been started on the central and northern portions of the property where the other drill holes are located. These results will be announced when available.

Management believes this property is situated to competitively reach markets in Salt Lake City, Reno, Northern California, and Southern Idaho.

Todd Montgomery, CEO of Infrastructure Materials Corp. recently commented, “We are pleased with the results of the Morgan Hill Property and the exploration in general of our limestone properties. Our efforts can be expected to soon result in the development of more than one economic grade cement resource in key locations in Nevada. This is exciting when you consider the shortage of cement production as compared to demand in the areas. In our opinion, it is nearly impossible to permit a new cement project in California due to state regulatory requirements. California recently mandated costly new requirements to curb CO2 emissions related to cement production that will further increase the cost of producing cement. With many of the eleven cement plants in California depleting their local resources, we expect that California’s cement production will decline in the near future.”

Infrastructure Materials Corp. is an exploration stage mining company that is directing its efforts to the development of cement grade limestone deposits in strategic locations in the United States.
