News Release

June 25, 2012


CALGARY, June 25, 2012 /CNW/ - The Honourable Nick Taylor, President and CEO of Softrockminerals of Calgary, Alberta announces that during the last week the Alberta Government issued the company four more Metallic and Industrial Permits to bring the total now held by Softrock to 14 totalling 127,513 hectares equivalent to 315,085 acres.

"This completes our acquisition stage in north and central Alberta, a stage which took us two years to reach using geochemical fluid analyses, coordinated with radioactive well log studies and sample and core analyses together with detailed surface studies" Taylor says.

"Our studies show that the Middle Devonian Elk Point basin in Saskatchewan that holds their huge potash reserves extends into Alberta but is complicated by two arches dividing the large basin into two sub-basins."

Taylor states that now that the geological, geophysical, and geochemical stage followed by the covering acquisitions are complete, the company is surveying accessibility to four drilling sites with the aim of drilling and coring two of them before this winter.
