Gensource Announces Closing of Non-Brokered Private Placement

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - July 16, 2015) - Gensource Potash Corporation ("Gensource" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GSP) announces it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing. The Company raised gross proceeds of $124,250 through the sale of 450,000 Flow-Through shares at $0.08 per share and 1,260,715 Non-Flow-Through shares at $0.07 per share.

All securities issued in conjunction with the Offering are subject to a four-month statutory hold period in Canada.

Completion of the Offering is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The net proceeds from the sale of shares will be used to advance the development of the Lazlo project.

Gensource estimates a budget of $4m to fund the development of a business plan of vertical integration with end market potash users, and to complete an exploration program on the Lazlo project (comprising drilling and 3D seismic over the planned Lazlo mining area) designed to support a resource estimate. Further financings of approximately $3M will be sought for Canadian Exploration Expense (CEE) activities (drilling and 3D seismic), with $1M to be expended on non-CEE expenses (expenses peripheral to the drilling and seismic as well as general working capital). The Company intends to fund this budget through a number of tranches of financing, which could potentially involve participation by a vertically integrated market partner.

Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This news release may contain forward looking information and Gensource cautions readers that forward looking information is based on certain assumptions and risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations of Gensource included in this news release. This news release includes certain "forward-looking statements", which often, but not always, can be identified by the use of words such as "believes", "anticipates", "expects", "estimates", "may", "could", "would", "will", or "plan". These statements are based on information currently available to Gensource and Gensource provides no assurance that actual results will meet management's expectations. Forward-looking statements include estimates and statements with respect to Gensource's future plans, objectives or goals, to the effect that Gensource or management expects a stated condition or result to occur, including the expected timing for release of a resource estimate and a preliminary economic assessment. Since forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results relating to, among other things, results of exploration, the economics of processing methods, project development, reclamation and capital costs of Gensource's mineral properties, and Gensource's financial condition and prospects, could differ materially from those currently anticipated in such statements for many reasons such as: changes in general economic conditions and conditions in the financial markets; the ability to find distributors and source offtake agreements; changes in demand and prices for potash; litigation, legislative, environmental and other judicial, regulatory, political and competitive developments; technological and operational difficulties encountered in connection with Gensource's activities; and other matters discussed in this news release and in filings made with securities regulators. This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect any of Gensource's forward-looking statements. These and other factors should be considered carefully and readers should not place undue reliance on Gensource's forward-looking statements. Gensource does not undertake to update any forward-looking statement that may be made from time to time by Gensource or on its behalf, except in accordance with applicable securities laws.
