About the Green River Potash and Lithium Project, Paradox Basin, Utah

The Green River Potash and Lithium Project is located in the Paradox Basin, Utah,  and has an Exploration Target estimated to contain 600 million to 1 billion tons of sylvinite grading between 19% to 29% KCL*, potentially one of the largest sources of potash in the USA**. This target was modelled utilizing well-logs of 33 historic local and regional oil and gas wells and was based on a specific stratigraphic horizon known as Cycle 5, the same horizon that Intrepid Potash Inc. (NYSE-IPI), America’s largest potash company, produces from at their nearby Moab, Utah solution mine.

The Company holds a 100% interest in eleven State of Utah (SITLA) mineral and minerals salt leases covering over 7,000 acres, 128 Federal lithium brine claims covering 2,650 acres, and is in the final stages of the application process for 11 Federal (BLM) Potash Exploration permits comprised of approximately 25,000 acres.

Significantly, three of the State leases and a large area covered by the Federal (BLM) Potash Permit applications, lie within or border, an area designated for future potash and brine and processing, including energy efficient solar evaporation ponds.

Located only 20 miles northwest of Moab, Utah, the project has significant logistical advantages including close proximity to major rail hubs, airport, roads, water, towns and labour markets.

The U.S. imports more than 90% of its annual potash requirements, and domestic producers receive a higher sales price due to proximity to market; as of December 2022, the muriate of potash price was $562.50 USD per tonne (fob Vancouver) - Intrepid Potash, America’s largest potash producer, reported receiving $734 USD per ton in Q3 2022.***

* Agapito Associates Inc. Technical report (October 2012) quantifies the Green River Potash Project’s potash exploration potential in the form of a NI 43-101 Exploration Target.  The Exploration Target estimate was prepared in accordance to the NI 43-101 guidelines of the Canadian securities regulators.  It should be noted that Exploration Targets are conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define them as Mineral Resources, and, while reasonable potential may exist, it is uncertain whether further exploration will result in the determination of a Mineral Resource under NI 43-101.  The Exploration Target stated in the Agapito Report is not being reported as part of any Mineral Resource or Mineral Reserve.
