Western Potash Corp. Completes Second Potash Exploration Well

Western Potash Corp. (the "Company") (TSX.V: WPX, FSE: AHE) is pleased to announce that it has completed its second potash exploration well within the Russell-Miniota Exploration Permits in Manitoba. These Permits comprise 555 square kilometers, are adjacent to BHP Billiton's Potash Lease and Agrium's Exploration Permits along the Manitoba border, and lie within 13km of Saskatchewan Potash Corp's Rocanville Potash Mine.

The second hole, targeting the Prairie Evaporite and drilled vertically, was completed at a total depth of 932m and is located approximately 3km SSE of the first hole.  Coring commenced at a depth of 865m and intersected the Prairie Evaporite Formation at a depth of 874m.  The main potash mineralized zone, representing the Esterhazy Member currently being mined at the Rocanville Mine, was intersected from 880m to 883m. Samples from the main potash zone will now be submitted for analysis at the Saskatchewan Research Council laboratory (SRC) in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  Results from SRC are estimated to be available within 6 to 8 weeks. Samples from the Company's first hole are currently being processed at the laboratory.

Construction of the next drill site has been completed and mobilization of the drill is underway.  The Company initially plans to complete five potash exploration wells with an option to extend the program by an additional ten wells as results warrant.

Western Potash Corp.  is a mineral exploration company engaged in the evaluation, exploration and development of potash mineral properties in Western Canada.  The Company is well funded with over forty million in cash and intends to define and develop a world-class potash deposit in an ecologically sustainable, economically efficient and socially responsible manner.
