Itronics Updates Investors; Revenues Up 34 Percent 


RENO, NV -- April 25, 2023 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Itronics Inc. (OTC: ITRO) today reported on current Company progress to its investors.  


  •       Total Revenues for the 12 months ended December 31, 2022, were $2,089,780 compared to $1,559,109 in the same period in 2021, a 34 percent increase over the prior year. Full year GOLD'n GRO fertilizer sales in 2022 were $2,016,363 compared to $1,513,852 in the prior year, a 33.2 percent increase over 2021. "In spite of persistent drought conditions in California which severely limited farmer's access to water, we saw an increase in GOLD'n GRO sales that we believe could have been much higher under normal conditions," said Dr. John Whitney, Founder and CEO.  


  •       Itronics has begun work to expand its GOLD'n GRO sales into nursery markets nationwide. Entrance into the nursery markets will help expand GOLD'n GRO sales, while reducing the seasonal impact on revenues. The following example demonstrates that GOLD'n GRO may be especially beneficial for nursery growers.  


A tree propagating nursery has been using GOLD'n GRO 8-8-8+4% S for more than 15 years. The use of GOLD'n GRO has demonstrated important benefits, including 1) time to grow salable product reduced from 4 years to 2 years; 2) 70 percent less fertilizer required; 3) 70 percent less water required; 4) major reduction in labor cost by using fertilizer injection into the drip irrigation system. All major water soluble and slow-release fertilizers were tried and compared but were found to be less satisfactory. The young trees' foliage is green and healthy, showing strong plant vigor. The increase in production and reduction in costs using GOLD'n GRO doubled revenues and significantly increased sales margins for the nursery.  


  •       After a successful Phase 1 Rock Kleen testing program, which was announced in a November 2022 Press Release, Itronics and the operating gold mining company are planning a Phase 2 program. The Phase 2 program would become part of a plan to develop the project through pilot testing, engineering, and feasibility, to be followed by construction and start-up of a tailings processing operation. This would be completed over several years, inclusive of permitting.   


  •       Ongoing testing work on the Auric Fulstone iron mine tailings has successfully proven the ability to use Rock Kleen to recover iron from the tailings in the correct chemical form to be used in GOLD'n GRO production. This presents an opportunity for Auric Gold & Minerals, Inc., a majority owned subsidiary of Itronics, to begin producing revenues, while directly benefiting Itronics with a cost-effective supply of raw materials.  


  •       Itronics has recently performed successful testing work on zinc-manganese-graphite "black mass" battery paste. More testing will need to be completed; however, the initial tests show significant recovery of zinc and manganese, and the potential to recover graphite. The zinc is usable as a raw material in GOLD'n GRO production. The Company believes it may be able to utilize all the "black mass" to produce saleable products. Zinc, manganese, and graphite are designated as United States Critical Minerals.  


  •       In the 1st Quarter 2023, Itronics successfully refinanced its Stead manufacturing facility, restructuring the remaining debt under favorable terms.  


  •       Itronics recently restructured its Contract of Sale purchase agreement on the Wabuska property in Yerington, Nevada, which will become the Itronics Cleantech Materials Campus (ICMC). The Company has until September 30, 2023, to complete the property acquisition. 


  •       After receiving the completed Intellectual Property (IP) valuation report in February, work has been started to put a project financing package together to fund a Rock Kleen pilot/demonstration plant to be located at the Wabuska property (ICMC). This financing is intended to provide Itronics with non-dilutive, project loan-based funding. The value of the IP will be used as part of the loan security. Auric Fulstone iron mine tailings will be used as feed material for the new plant. 


  •       The Company continues to make progress towards completing the audit of its financial statements. The Company's goal is to have this completed by the middle of the year.  


"We would like to thank our investors for their continued support," said Dr. Whitney. "Our portfolio of 'Zero Waste Energy Saving Technologies' is making the world cleaner and greener and is positioned to enhance the Company's continued drive to profitability."
