AFRICAN POTASH LIMITED

("African Potash" or the "Company")

Joint Venture Agreement

 

African Potash, is pleased to announce that, pursuant to a Memorandum of Understanding, signed in August 2nd, with the government of the Republic of Congo, it has entered into a Joint Venture agreement with SG Inc., incorporated in Barbados. SG Inc. is an African focused investment and project development group. The agreement is to develop, operate and commercialise the mineral opportunities and downstream resources in the Republic of Congo for the production of fertiliser. Each party will own fifty percent of the venture.

 

Chris Cleverly, Executive Chairman, said, "The combination of proven key 'in situ' fertiliser components, along with existing and planned infrastructure in the Republic of Congo is significant. The proximity of the port facilities at Pointe Noire ultimately offers access to international markets. 

 

The Company looks forward to working with our partner, who has an excellent track record of building resource-based and other businesses in the Republic of Congo. 

 

This agreement represents a further step in our strategy to build a vertically integrated fertiliser business from initial resource through to selling, using block-chain technology, direct to the farm".

 

 

The Company will make further updates in due course.

 

The Directors of the Company accept responsibility for the content of this announcement.
