North Atlantic Potash announces results from Stockholm exploration program

North Atlantic Potash announces results from Stockholm exploration program 
SASKATOON, Jan. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - North Atlantic Potash Inc., (North Atlantic) 
the Canadian subsidiary of JSC Acron, drilled one exploration well this fall 
on KP 421, the company's wholly owned potash permit holding near Esterhazy, 
Saskatchewan ("Stockholm"). 
Two high-grade potash members were intersected. The Belle Plaine Member 
yielded 42% KCL over 2.5 metres and the Esterhazy Member yielded 36% KCL over 
2.3 metres. The Esterhazy Member is known for its extremely favourable potash 
characteristics of being high grade, with very low clay content, and of a 
coarse texture. Although the results were similar to an historic hole 5 km 
north an accurate definition of the resource potential of this property will 
require additional seismic surveying and drilling. 
"With such extensive property holdings, we are pleased with the progress of 
our methodical and systematic exploration to evaluate our opportunities," said 
Arie Zuckerman, President of North Atlantic Potash. "The world will require 
the equivalent of an additional potash mine a year over the next decade as the 
global population grows despite the year over year fertilizer market 
fluctuation. We strongly believe our Saskatchewan potash assets are well 
positioned to support this critical need." 
The Stockholm Property is approximately 25 kilometres west of two producing 
mines owned and operated by the Mosaic Company near Esterhazy, Saskatchewan. 
"The results we received from this drill hole confirmed our expectations about 
the potential of this particular permit," added David Waugh, CEO of North 
Atlantic Potash. "Being next door to the largest producing potash mine in 
Saskatchewan and intersecting strong potash yields, allows North Atlantic to 
proceed with the further delineation of the property with added confidence." 
On January 7, 2013 North Atlantic released a 43-101 compliant Resource Summary 
Report for their Foam Lake property which confirmed 942 million tonnes 
in-place at 19% K(2)O (30% KCL) with 218 million tonnes Indicated and 724 
million tonnes Inferred. The report was prepared by the internationally 
recognized potash geologic firm North Rim Exploration Ltd.
