Cloudbreak Resources Ltd.: Application Underway for 774,282 Acres of Potash Claims Alberta

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 20, 2008) - CLOUDBREAK RESOURCES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:CDB)(PINK SHEETS:CUDBF)(FRANKFURT:C6K) is pleased to report the company has applied for a number of metallic mineral permits from the Department of Alberta Energy, Mineral Development Division in Edmonton, Alberta in the Vermillion area on the Saskatchewan-Alberta border, which include the rights to subsurface potash, totaling 774,282 acres.

According to an overview of work conducted by Royal American Petroleums Ltd. in 1966 filed with the Alberta Geological Survey in Mineral Assessment Report (19660009): "The geological strata and basinal effects in the Vermilion area are closely related to the potash-rich areas of Esterhazy, Saskatoon and Unity."

The study of this portion of Alberta showed the presence of a substantial quantity of carnallite and possible sylvite in the Vermillion area in the East Central Plains of Alberta. Literature made available from the Alberta Conservation Board, corroborates this potash occurrence in Alberta.

The potash minerals are found in the Prairie Evaporite section of the Middle Devonian Elk Point Basin. The carnallite minerals lie on top of a thick 400 foot section of common salt (halite). A thickness of twelve feet of carnallite was reported to be present and the pinkish and greyish mineral, in all probability sylvite, occurs through the first 80 feet of the Prairie Evaporite. Potash occurs over the upper 150 feet at Esterhazy and in the Saskatoon area.

The potash minerals are of the same composition and depositional sequence and depth as the potash at Unity, Saskatchewan, the location of Canada's first Potash Mine. A possible potash bed occurs at 2600 feet in the Prairie Evaporite which could be an extension of the Unity deposit. The lower deposits are separate but occur at 3500 feet similar to the Saskatoon deposits.
