ST. JOHN'S, NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Red Moon Potash Inc. ("the Company" - "Red Moon")(TSX VENTURE: RMK) announces that it continues with pre-drilling planning, permitting and procurement work towards a 2013 drill program for potash/salt in the Bay St. George basin of western Newfoundland. A tender has been issued for drilling bids and exploration approval applications have been submitted to government regulators. Subject to the approval process, the Company will decide on the timing and scale of the drilling program. Previous work located a new potash discovery in the Captain Cook area at depths less than 400 metres with encouraging grades up to 20% K2O (32% KCl). It is currently planned to step out from that discovery hole to better understand the potash distribution in this area. The Company has the benefit of an extensive seismic database in the basin to integrate new drill results and better define the distribution of the evaporite rocks which contain the potash beds. The Bay St. George property has immediate access to deep water ports, road and power grid networks. The property is contained within the larger Maritimes Basin of Atlantic Canada which hosts the Sussex, (New Brunswick) Potash Mine operated by Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan.
The Company will be attending the PDAC 2013 conference and exhibition in Toronto, March 3rd to 6th and wishes to invite all interested parties to visit us at Booth 3007. For further information about Red Moon Potash please visit our new website at www.redmoonpotash.com .
Red Moon is a junior exploration company focused on potash/salt exploration in western Newfoundland.
