Ethiopian Potash Receives Additional High Grade Sylvite Assays

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2011) - Ethiopian Potash Corp. ("EPC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FED)(TSX VENTURE:FED.WT)(OTCQX:ETPHF) is pleased to announce that it has now received the assay results for holes 1 and 3, located in the Discovery Zone in the Southwest Corner of its Danakil Potash Project, Ethiopia.

David Wahl President and CEO stated, "We are in the unfortunate position of having to release excellent results into a soft market during tax-loss selling season, however hopefully investors can recognize the pattern of high grade sylvite (the only horizon that matters for our mining plan) over excellent widths, which should continue. With the rest of the drill results upcoming, Ethiopian Potash expects to issue a new 43-101 in the early part of Q1 2012, placing it in the exact same position as its Canadian listed peers operating in the Basin."
