Potash Ridge Receives Large Mining Permit for Its Blawn Mountain Sulphate of Potash Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/14 -- Potash Ridge Corporation ("Potash Ridge" or the "Corporation") (TSX: PRK) (OTCQX: POTRF) today announced that the Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining ("DOGM") has issued the Large Mining Permit (the "Permit") for the Blawn Mountain Project (the "Project").

The Corporation had received approval for the Corporation's Notice of Intention to Commence Large Mining Operations in July 2014, which was subject to a 30-day public comment period. This public comment period ended on August 8, 2014. Multiple letters of support were received and no objections, highlighting the lack of major environmental, social issues and strong support within the community. Accordingly, DOGM has issued the final Permit to Potash Ridge. Prior to the commencement of construction, certain normal course regulatory filings will be required, including a reclamation contract and the posting of a reclamation surety bond.

"The Permit approval is a huge accomplishment by our team and further illustrates the success of our accelerated permitting program for the Project," said Guy Bentinck, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are delighted with all of our environmental and permitting achievements thus far in 2014, and have only one more major permit remaining to be addressed as part of the upcoming feasibility study."

About Potash Ridge

Potash Ridge is a Canadian based exploration and development company focused on developing a surface alunite deposit in southern Utah called the Blawn Mountain Project. It is expected to produce a premium fertilizer called sulphate of potash and a possible alumina rich by-product.

Located in Utah, a mining friendly jurisdiction with established infrastructure nearby, the Project is expected to produce an average of 645,000 tons of SOP per annum over a 40 year mine life. A NI 43-101 compliant Prefeasibility Study completed in November 2013 by Norwest Corporation demonstrated that the Project is both technically and economically viable. The Prefeasibility Study, entitled "NI 43-101 Technical Report Resources and Reserves of the Blawn Mountain Project, Beaver County, Utah" dated effective November 6, 2013 is available on SEDAR.

Potash Ridge has a highly qualified and proven management team with significant financial, project management and operational experience and the proven ability to take projects into production.
