Atlas Iron Limited (ASX:AGO) Quarterly Report For The Period Ending 30 September 2009

Perth, Oct 29, 2009 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Atlas Iron Limited (ASX:AGO) is exporting iron ore through the port of Port Hedland and actively exploring for Direct Shipping Ore (DSO) in the Pilbara of Western Australia. With a growing number of high quality iron ore projects and one of the largest exploration landholdings in the Pilbara, the Company has the resources to underpin rapid expansion plans in the North Pilbara over the next three years. In the longer term Atlas is seeking to expand its operations into the Newman area, through its planned merger with Warwick Resources Limited which is expected, subject to Warwick Resources shareholder and optionholder approval, to be completed in mid-December 2009.

While exporting iron ore from the Pardoo mine (Atlas' first mine development), Atlas is also active in feasibility assessment, new acquisitions, target generation and grass roots exploration. Ongoing project definition through acquisition, exploration and feasibility studies has delivered a strong project pipeline which the Company considers has the potential for a production rate of 12 million tonnes per annum of Direct Shipping Ore (DSO) by 2012.

As the Company demonstrates its capacity to discover, assess and develop, it is well positioned to advance a number of projects concurrently, with the intention to both expand the Company's production base and extend mine life.
