POTASH PROGRESS REPORT by SOFTROCK MINERALS LTD (SFT on TSX-Venture Exchange)

In communication with the Alberta Government's Mineral Development Division, the Honourable Nick Taylor, CEO of Softrock Minerals Ltd (SFT) learned this week that the company's application for an additional eight metallic and mineral permits totalling approximately 184,000 acres has been accepted with deposits and can be expected to be issued in final Permit form near the end of July this year.

The government, at the request of Softrock, also cancelled two permits out of the three held by Softrock the last two years and granted a two year extension to the remaining Permit.

Taylor states "The decision to apply for more Permits was reached after two years of study of Northwestern Alberta by Softrock and its contracted geo-scientists using geochemical and geological analyses over the original 67,200 acre area and areas adjoining."

Taylor also states that the resulting 100% in approximately 234,000 acres (365 sq. miles) picked on good geological evidence puts the company in a good position to proceed on an exploration drilling program.

On behalf of the Board of Directors
The Honourable Nick Taylor, President and Director
