About Intercontinental Potash Corp

ICP is developing its Ochoa New Mexico property with the primary purpose of using polyhalite as feedstock to produce Sulphate of Potash. Sulphate of Potash, "SOP" or Potassium Sulphate, is premium priced potash. The market for SOP is approximately 4 million tonnes per year. SOP is used as a significant alternative fertilizer to sylvite (Muriate of Potash or MOP) for agricultural products such as fruits, vegetables, tobacco, potatoes, and horticultural plants. SOP has low "salinity" compared to MOP, and therefore is also used in various saline soils in the world, which are found for example in China, India, the Mediterranean, and the United States. Polyhalite may also be developed as a slow release multi-nutrient fertilizer which contains the plant macronutrients Potassium, Sulphate, Magnesium and Calcium. ICP's Ochoa property consists of federal sub-surface potassium permits granted by the Bureau of Land Management ("BLM") covering more than 36,500 acres of land. All reclamation plans, environmental plans, and archeological work have been approved by BLM.
