American Potash Llc Announces Acquisition Of Additional State Of Utah Potash And Lithium Leases

Confederation Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: CFM) is pleased to announce that American Potash LLC, a Nevada USA incorporated private corporate joint venture owned equally by Confederation Minerals Ltd. and Magna Resources Ltd., has acquired an additional 960 acres of potash and lithium leases as part of the Green River Potash Project in the Paradox Basin, Southeast Utah.

The 960 total acres are comprised of two State sections that were acquired via competitive bid and are north of and contiguous with the north end of American Potash’s existing Green River Project area of interest (AOI), which is comprised of 7050 acres of Utah State leases and contiguous with 63,241 acres of pending BLM potash prospect permits. Utah State leases are surrounded by and/or contiguous with its pending BLM prospect permits.

Potential in-situ solution mineable target salt cycles beneath the Green River Potash Project AOI include potash cycles 5, 9, 13 and 18. Potash cycle 5 is currently being solution mined at the Cane Creek solution potash mine in the central part of the Paradox Basin, southeast of the Green River project AOI. The Green River AOI covers the least structurally deformed part of the Paradox Basin, likely enhancing ease of exploration, resource and mine development, and production operations. Based on historic oil and gas exploration well logs cycle 13 appears to underlie most of the Green River project AOI, and cycles 5, 9, and 18 underlie lesser but still significant portions of the AOI.

The technical information disclosed in this press release has been reviewed, verified and compiled by Dr. Kent Ausburn, P.Geo. Dr. Ausburn is a qualified person (QP) as defined by National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101). Dr. Ausburn has over 29 years of mineral exploration, mine development and business experience in the mining industry.


On Behalf of the Board,
Confederation Minerals Ltd.
