Western Potash to Participate at Agro Tech 2014, Chandigarh, India

Vancouver BC – Western Potash Corp. (WPX: TSX) (FSE: AHE) (“Western”, “the Company”) will be attending the upcoming Agro Technology and Business Fair 2014, in Chandigarh, India, November 22 to 25th. One of the largest events of its kind, Agro Tech promotes sustainable agriculture, and will host more than 85,000 visitors and over 250 companies exhibiting in the agriculture industry, fertilizer, and food categories. India is one of the largest potash markets globally focusing on issues from commodity price inflation to farm subsidies, food and fertilizer supply security.

Supported by Western Economic Diversification Canada, the Saskatchewan Trade & Export Partnership (STEP) will lead the Western Canadian Showcase in which the Company will be profiling the Milestone potash project as part of this delegation. The initiative highlights the Company’s ongoing effort to secure additional strategic investors and partnerships for Milestone. Western anticipates that the financing and development of Milestone will likely include the involvement of a multi-party consortium, with participation divided between a number of fertilizer industry players alongside financial institutions providing project finance.

In pursuit of increased visibility, Agro Tech 2014 follows on the heels of Western’s recent participation in the 2014 World Fertilizer Conference in San Francisco in September of this year, the International Fertilizer Association Production & International Trade Conference in Beijing, China, also in September, and the IFA Crossroads Asia-Pacific 2014 in Singapore in October.

As the Company continues to reach out to global fertilizer industry participants, Western’s technical and commercial teams have also hosted a series of in-house presentation sessions. The Company has provided access to the Milestone virtual data room to potential partners from the global industry with a focus on Asia and China, Japan and India in general.
