CALGARY, June 23, 2011 /CNW/ - In communication with the Alberta Government's Mineral Development Division, the Honourable Nick Taylor, CEO of Softrock Minerals Ltd (SFT) learned this week that the company's application for an additional eight metallic and mineral permits totalling approximately 184,000 acres has beem accepted with deposits and can be expected to be issued in final Permit form near the end of July this year.

The government, at the request of Softrock, also cancelled two permits out of the three held by Softrock the last two years and granted a two year extension to the remaining Permit.

Taylor states "The decision to apply for more Permits was reached after two years of study of Northwestern Alberta by Softrock and its contracted geo-scientists using geochemical and geological analyses over the original 67,200 ac area and areas adjoining."

Taylor also states that the resulting 100% in approximately 234,000 acres (365 sq. miles) picked on good geological evidence puts the company in a good position to proceed on an exploration drilling program.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Service Provider (as the term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
