About IC Potash Corp.
 ICP intends to become a primary producer of
Sulphate of Potash ("SOP") and Sulphate of Potash Magnesia ("SOPM")
by mining its 100%-owned Ochoa property in southeast New Mexico, a
highly advanced polyhalite mineral deposit containing proven and
probable reserves of more than 340 million tons of ore within the
proposed mine plan. SOP is a non-chloride based potash fertilizer
that sells at a substantial premium over the price of regular potash
known as Muriate of Potash ("MOP"). MOP contains chloride and is
therefore not the optimal potash for numerous crops and in situations
where there is high soil salinity. ICP is focused on becoming the
lowest cost producer of SOP in the world, a market that is towards
six million tonnes per year. SOP is a significant fertilizer in
horticultural industries, particularly fruits, vegetables, tobacco
and potatoes. SOP is applicable for soils where there are substantial
agricultural activity, high soil salinity, and in arid regions. SOPM
is a highly desirable potash product for soils with magnesium
deficiency, and has a total global market size of over one million
tonnes. ICP's Ochoa property consists of nearly 90,000 acres of
federal subsurface potassium prospecting permits and State of New
Mexico Potassium mining leases. For more information, please visit
