Western Potash Corp. begins scoping study at Milestone

Western Potash Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: WPX, FSE: AHE) is pleased to announce that AMEC Americas Limited, a TSX publicly traded, international supplier of high-value consultancy, engineering and project management services with an office in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan has been engaged and has initiated a preliminary economic assessment of the Milestone Potash Project (the “Scoping Study”).  AMEC is currently managing multiple potash expansion projects with a capital value of several billion dollars. AMEC was chosen by the Company because of their experience, proven record and commercial expertise, though final selection was primarily due to their depth of technical expertise within the potash industry.

The preliminary economic assessment will aim to conceptualize the viability of a potash mining operation on the Milestone property.  The Scoping Study will place particular focus on quantifying the expected beneficial effects that the higher Potash formation temperatures measured at Milestone may have on reducing the energy requirements of a Potash operation, so as to estimate potential operating cost savings.  Golder Associates Ltd. of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan will assist the Company with environmental baseline studies and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (“EIS”) for the project. The target date for delivery of the Scoping Study is estimated to be toward the end of July of 2010.
