Fraser Mackenzie Ltd. Initiates Analyst Coverage on Allana Potash Corp.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2010) - Allana Potash Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AAA) ("Allana" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that Fraser Mackenzie Ltd. (Fraser Mackenzie) has initiated analyst coverage of Allana. If you wish to receive a copy of the report directly, please contact Fraser Mackenzie (www.frasermackenzie.com).

Allana's Ethiopia Potash Project is comprised of three mineral concessions totaling approximately 150 square kilometers in Ethiopia's northeastern Danakil Depression, one of the largest evaporite basins in the world. The project area is approximately 100 km from the Red Sea coast and the sea port of Mersa Fatma, Eritrea and 600 km via road from the deep water port of Djibouti. Allana's concessions have an inferred mineral resource estimate of 105,200,000 tonnes of potash mineralization (Sylvite and Kainite) with a composite grade of 20.8 % KCl (see News Release Sept. 17, 2008) that is open along strike and to depth. Potash deposits of the Danakil Depression are unique due to their shallow depth and may be amenable to open pit or solution mining and solar evaporation. Diamond drilling is ongoing at the project and the first three holes of the programme have intersected potash at shallow depth (100 m to 150 m). Downhole seismic as well as a 2D surface seismic programme are also underway.

Peter J. MacLean, Ph.D., P. Geo., Allana's VP Exploration, is a Qualified Person as defined under National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical information presented in this release.
