Karnalyte Resources receives Environmental Impact Statement approval for Wynyard Carnallite Project

Karnalyte Resources receives Environmental Impact Statement approval for 
Wynyard Carnallite Project 
CALGARY, Feb. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Karnalyte Resources Inc. ("Karnalyte" or the 
"Corporation") (TSX: KRN) today announced that the Saskatchewan Ministry of 
Environment ("MOE") has approved the Environmental Impact Statement ("EIS") 
for Karnalyte's Wynyard Carnallite Project (the "Project"). 
"EIS approval is essential to the advancement of the Wynyard Carnallite 
Project, and was a condition of the $45 million strategic investment by GSFC," 
said Robin Phinney, President and CEO of Karnalyte. "EIS approval is a 
significant milestone for Karnalyte. We are now in a stronger position as we 
actively pursue additional funding opportunities to enable the start of Phase 
I of the Project's construction in the second quarter of this year." 
Karnalyte submitted a revised EIS to the Saskatchewan MOE in September 2012 in 
accordance with the Environmental Assessment Act. After technical and public 
review, the MOE is satisfied that any adverse environmental effects can be 
eliminated or minimized. 
Karnalyte will now focus on obtaining the permits required to initiate 
construction while continuing detailed engineering activities and finalizing 
site preparation. Karnalyte intends to advance the development of the Project 
concurrently with securing funding. 
On January 10, 2013, the Corporation announced that it had entered into a 
strategic investment agreement with Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals 
("GSFC"), where GSFC will make a strategic investment of approximately $45 
million in Karnalyte and a committed off-take agreement for the sale and 
purchase of approximately 350,000 tonnes per year ("TPY") of potash from Phase 
1 of the Project, increasing to 600,000 TPY with the commencement of Phase 
2. Closing of the strategic investment was conditional on receiving the 
approval of the EIS from the MOE. The closing date is anticipated to take 
place on or about February 22, 2013.
