WHY GRIZZLY DISCOVERIES?

  • World class gold and base metal deposits in British Columbia; and diamonds in Alberta.
  • More than 9 million oz Au produced or as resources in a radius of less than 70KM to Greenwood project
  • Holds, or has an interest in, metallic and industrial mineral permits for potash totalling more than 364,000 acres along the Alberta-Saskatchewan border
  • Four precious-base metal properties in British Columbia totalling over 235,000 acres. Grizzly also currently holds more than 231,000 acres in diamond properties, which host diamondiferous kimberlites in the Buffalo Head Hills and Birch Mountains of Alberta
  • Portions of Grizzly’s Greenwood Project being explored by Kinross through option agreement

EXPLORATION HIGHLIGHTS

  • Drillholes with up to 31.1% K2O results from assays on recent Grizzly drill program
  • Historic Unity Potash Mine 45 km east of existing GZD lands
  • Agrium Vanscory Potash Mine 200 km east of GZD lands
  • Significant Potash in drill core or indicated by gamma logs at depths ranging from 1,060m to 1,675m
  • Temperatures at those depths range from about 50oC to 75oC. Optimal temperature for solution mining is approximately 75oC.

POTASH DEMAND AND GROWTH

  • According to industry estimates, Canada has Potash resources of 7.3 billion tonnes – roughly 52% of the world’s supply.
  • Currently 11 mines in Saskatchewan produce the majority of Canada’s 35% contribution to the world’s annual production.
  • The arable land per person in the world is declining, and weather patterns are becoming more volatile and extreme, fuelling demand for Potash which increases the yield per acre approximately 40%.

Greenwood Gold District

Portions of Grizzly’s Greenwood Project being explored by Kinross is 100% owned by Grizzly Discoveries Inc. and includes 131 claims that form a contiguous package totaling approximately 27,346 hectares, representing approximately one third of Grizzly’s land holdings at Greenwood. Under the terms of a September 2015 agreement, KG Exploration (Canada) Inc. can earn a 75% interest on the optioned land pursuant to an Option Agreement with Grizzly on portions of its land holdings in southeastern British Columbia by incurring US$3 million in exploration expenditures over a 5 year period. By the second anniversary of the agreement, 750 metres of diamond drilling must be completed along with US$750,000 in expenditures by September 23, 2017.

 ALBERTA DIAMONDS

  • Following 12 drill holes, 3 new diamond bearing kimberlites were discovered in 2008 at the Buffalo Head Hills property.
  • Grizzly has more than 200,000 acres surrounding Diamondex & Shore Gold in the Buffalo Head Hills.
  • Two kimberlite pipes look very promising and need bulk sampling which is being planned for future dates due to Grizzly’s current potash focus.
  • Land rights are valid for 2 to 5 years based on existing development work done on properties by Grizzly.

A Renewed Interest in diamonds

Renewed interest in diamond exploration during 2015 and 2016 has prompted re-evaluation of Grizzly’s Buffalo Head Hills Diamond Project in north-central Alberta, which is located approximately 330 kilometres northwest of Edmonton and is easily accessed during summer and winter by a large network of roads and cutlines. Based upon an internal review of all data, the Company has staked additional permits of highly prospective lands for diamond-bearing kimberlites in the Buffalo Head Hills area. Grizzly’s total land position includes 11 permits that encompass approximately 220,000 acres.

Pacific Potash Corp Provides Corporate Update

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:22 AM on Friday, March 28th, 2014

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – March 28th 2014 / Pacific Potash Corporation (TSX-V: PP; OTCQX: PPOTF; FSE: P9P, “Pacific Potash”, “the Company”) is pleased to provide a corporate update regarding its Amazonas Potash Project in Brazil.

As released prior, in the Company’s January 21st news release, Pacific Potash has completed drilling its first well on its 100% owned Amazonas Potash Project. The well was drilled to a total depth of 1421m, and in total 960m of core has been obtained from the well. The core has been cut, logged and prepared for assaying.

Core Samples and Assays

Pacific Potash reviewed Brazil for an assay lab to complete the analysis of the core samples, however it found that there are no existing Brazilian labs equipped to assay for evaporites.

As a result of these findings, Management has decided to ship the core samples out of Brazil for analysis, and the Company’s Brazilian subsidiary is in the last phase of receiving the required export permit from the Brazilian Government to ship the core samples to Canada. The process of obtaining the export permit has been complicated by the DNPM’s delay in transfer title for the potash claims from a 3rd party to the Company. The transfer request has been over two years in processing and during this time the Brazilian Government had a moratorium on claim transfers while awaiting the unveiling of the country’s new mining laws. The 3rd party company’s consent was required for the government to process Pacific Potash’s export permit. The Company now has that consent in hand and expects the export permit to be issued shortly.

Pacific Potash has selected Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd in Vancouver to complete the assays. Assay results will be released when received.

Memorandum of Understanding

The Company’s cornerstone investor and strategic advisor, Capital Asia continues to assist Pacific Potash in discussions with China’s state owned enterprise (“S.O.E”), as the S.O.E. advances toward a final decision with respect to providing the Company with $10 million in the form of an unsecured convertible debenture. Both parties are working diligently to complete their obligations and continue to work in good faith to complete due diligence. As previously disclosed, the parties intend that the $10,000,000 convertible debenture would convert into shares of Pacific Potash at a conversion price of $0.37 per common share. The S.O.E.’s aggregate beneficial ownership in the Company will not exceed 19.9% of the common shares of Pacific Potash at the time of exercise of these conversion rights. The Convertible Debenture shall bear interest at the rate of 5% per annum, payable semi-annually and share mature on the date which is two (2) years from the date of issuance.

Pacific Potash Initiates Drilling on its 100% Owned Amazonas Basin Potash Property *Sponsor*

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:58 AM on Friday, November 15th, 2013

Vancouver, British Columbia – November 15th, 2013 – Pacific Potash Corporation (TSX-V: PP; OTCQX: PPOTF; FSE: P9P) “Pacific Potash”, “the Company” is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling its Amazonas Basin Potash Property. Mobilization, set-up and the initial pre-collar and casing of the well have been completed and normal drilling operation is currently underway. The depth of the well is currently 456m and it is being cased and cemented to complete the first stage of drilling operation. The second stage of drilling will involve the commencement of coring which comprises rocks from the Andira and Nova Olinda formations. The Nova Olinda Formation is the target horizon for potash exploration in this basin. All significant potash intercepts have been located within Cycle VII of this formation. The Cycle VII potash mineralization occurs in numerous drill holes in the Middle Amazon basin, including those that define the Fazendinha and Arari potash occurrences.

“Drilling to date has been extremely smooth, logistics have been on time and on budget.” Mr. Balbir Johal, Executive Co-Chairman and Director reports, “Being fully funded for several wells, we anticipate many exciting months of exploration in anticipation of a new potash discovery in this world class basin.”

On Monday Nov. 11, 2013 a new potash discovery was announced directly across the river from Pacific Potash’s claims near the city of Itacoatiara by Brazil Potash Corp. Itacoatiara is the site of Pacific Potash’s field office and is located directly across the Amazon River from Pacific Potash’s claims. The first well site is a short 40-minute boat ride from the city. The discovery is another piece of evidence that proves the multiple deposit hypothesis of this basin.

Itacoatiara hosts a Panamax capacity port with a floating unit linked to the shore by a bridged conveyor. The port has five berths for barges and three warehouses. The port has a grain terminal (Hermasa) that made the Export Northwest Corridor feasible where the production of the Northwest regions of Mato Grosso and Southwest of Rondônia is drained. It mainly exports soybeans, soybean oil and bran. Itacoatiara is also accessible by paved Amazonas State highway (AM010) 265 km east from Manaus, the capital city of the state.

This is Pacific Potash’s first well of a planned multi-well drill program on the Amazonas Potash Project aimed at making a new potash discovery. The well is expected to take approximately 60 days from the start of drilling and will be drilled to a true depth of 1400m. The target formation, Nova Olinda Cycle VII is anticipated to occur at a depth of approximately 1300m. Gamma-ray and Caliper downhole geophysics will be run in the well to identify the mineralized zone and to better correlate the stratigraphy in the area.

Pacific Potash Recieves Enviromental Permits and Mobilizes Drill Rig to Amazonas Potash Project

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:10 PM on Monday, October 21st, 2013

Vancouver, British Columbia – October 21st, 2013 – Pacific Potash Corporation (TSX-V: PP; OTCQX: PPOTF; FSE: P9P, “Pacific Potash”, “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has obtained all environmental permits for drilling in addition to securing and mobilizing a drill rig to its Amazonas Potash Project. The Company has finalized its work program, including processing and analyzing seven additional historic seismic lines which overlay the initial drill targets. Pacific Potash expects to begin drilling within the next 7 days.

The initial well drilled by Pacific Potash will be the first potash well ever to be drilled in the central part of the Amazonas Basin, as previous exploration efforts for potash have been directed towards the margins of the basin.

Mr. Andre Costa, President and CEO stated “This is a very significant milestone for Pacific Potash, as the path is now clear for us to execute the drilling of our initial well of the exploration program.”

It is expected that once drilling commences it will take approximately 60 days to reach depth and remove core from the formation of interest, the well will top out at approximately 1500 meters of true depth. The cores will be sent to Saskatchewan, Canada for chemical analysis and processing.
