ENCANTO POTASH CORP. UPDATES MUSKOWEKWAN PROJECT

Canada NewsWire

TRADING SYMBOL:  TSXV  EPO.V

VANCOUVER, April 12 /CNW/ - Encanto Potash Corp. ("Encanto" or the "Company") is pleased to congratulate Chief Reginald Bellerose on his recent re-election as Chief of the Muskowekwan First Nation and to congratulate incumbent and new Council members.  As previously reported in the Company's news release of March 18th, 2011, the top agenda item for the Company and its joint venture partners post election is to expeditiously conclude the designation process on the project's TLE Reserve Land's mineral rights. 

Chief Bellerose today stated that "Our priority is to move the designation process forward as quickly as possible. We are confident that an additional 15,500 acres contiguous to our Home Reserve will soon be designated Reserve status. We are excited about what the future holds with respect to the benefits our Nation will receive by continuing to work closely together with Encanto."

Upon completion of the TLE designation process, currently underway, Encanto will have access to 100% of the potash rights underlying both the Muskowekwan First Nation Home Reserve comprising 16,830 acres and the 15,500 acres of TLE Reserve Lands for a total of 32,220 acres.

The TLE Reserve Lands have already had widely spaced 2D seismic shot over their entirety.  In addition, the 3D seismic program covered approximately 40% of the TLE Reserve Lands.  Encanto's management and consultants have completed an extensive review of this 2D and 3D seismic data and have identified two (2) future resource drill hole locations on the TLE Reserve Lands.  The Company currently has in excess of $7.5 million in its treasury and has budgeted funds to drill the additional wells.

Drilling the additional two (2) drill holes is expected to add significant tonnage to the current resource.  Upon completion of these two (2) drill holes North Rim Exploration Ltd., of Saskatoon, Sask., will be commissioned by the Company to issue an amended NI 43-101 Technical Report to include the anticipated new resources on the TLE Lands.

Encanto is further pleased to report that work on the Preliminary Economic Assessment, which is being conducted by Wardrop, A Tetra Tech Company, is now well under way with the draft report expected to be delivered in the third quarter of this year.

The technical content of this news release has been reviewed by Ross Moulton, VP of Exploration for Encanto, a qualified person as defined by NI 43-101.
