Three separate resources possible at Morgan Hill

August 4, 2009

TORONTO, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ – Infrastructure Materials Corp. (NASDAQ OTC-BB: Symbol IFAM) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce results of a further 10 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.

Analysis of the drill results and new detail surface mapping to date indicates the potential for three separate limestone beds on the Morgan Hill claim group. These zones are located in the south (previously announced), the central portion (in this report) and the northern portion of the claim group.

These 10 holes are located in the central portion of the claim block. Compilation of geologic and geochemical drill cross sections along with new detailed surface geology indicate that there are three distinct calcium carbonate beds in this central portion of the claims that could be used for cement and/or high grade limestone. Work to date also indicates that the majority of the target limestone beds in this central area are steeply dipping and in some cases overturned due to thrust faulting. Northeast trending faults have caused the limestone beds to repeat the surface exposure throughout the Project area.

Holes 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 14 each intersected multiple units of cement grade limestone ranging in the high 80% to 100% calcium carbonate (CaCO3). Intersections in these drill holes ranged from 15 feet to 200 feet but as a result of the dip angles of the limestone units the vertical drill results from these holes are not representative of the actual thickness of the target units which are still unknown. Phase II drilling will be angle holes to accurately reflect the true thickness of the target units as well as their relationship with surface exposures noted during the recent detail mapping. Holes 8 and 13 did not encounter any economic limestone.

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.
