About Rogue Iron Ore Corp.
Rogue's flagship asset, the Radio Hill iron ore project, is unlike most other iron plays as it has exceptional infrastructure including a highway, power, water, nearby natural gas and active railway siding providing access to the CN Rail mainline on site. The project is competitively positioned to access North American markets as well as overseas markets. The Company is currently conducting metallurgical studies on the Radio Hill dill hole core samples to assess the composition of the potential product that might be generated from the project.
