Encanto Potash Corp. announces funding for an Ochapowace test well

13:13 EDT Thursday, October 10, 2013

TSXV:EPO

VANCOUVER, Oct. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Encanto Potash Corp. ("Encanto" or the "Company") (TSXV: EPO and OTCQX: ENCTF) announces that it has secured funding of up to $1,250,000 to drill a test well on the Ochapowace Reserve Lands (the "Property") to test both the potash and oil and gas potential of the Property.

The funder, Hamad Al-Wazzan, a director of the Company, will earn an 80% interest in Encanto's potash rights under the Exploration Participation Agreement with the Ochapowace First Nation and will also earn a 50% working interest in the oil and gas permits and leases on the Property.

Encanto has granted the funder the right for two years to put these interests back to Encanto and receive shares of Encanto equal to the amount of the funds advanced by the funder divided by the lower of $0.34 or the price per share at which Encanto does its next financing, subject to TSXV approval.

The well will be drilled in 2013 when the weather conditions permit.
