IC Potash Corp. Accelerates Expiry Date for December 2009 Warrants to February 21, 2011

TORONTO, Jan. 21 /CNW/ - IC Potash Corp. ("ICP" or the "Company") (TSXV: ICP, OCTQX: ICPTF) announced today that the expiry date of warrants issued on December 2, 2009 and December 3, 2009 (the "Warrants") has been accelerated to February 21, 2011.   The Warrants remain exercisable at a price of $0.65 per share.  The accelerated expiry date is set out in the subscription agreements and warrant certificates from the financings that closed on December 2, 2009 and December 3, 2009.

"We believe that the recent performance of our share price reflects the increasing value of our Ochoa Sulphate of Potash Project in New Mexico," said Sidney Himmel, ICP's President and CEO.  He continued: "Sulphate of Potash prices continue to increase and maintain a price that is 50% higher than the price of regular potash, which is known as Muriate of Potash.  The recent Preliminary Economic Assessment, which was prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101, indicated very robust economics for the Ochoa Project."

Warrants can be exercised in accordance with section 3 of the warrant certificate.
