Pacific Potash Completes Share Consolidation

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 14, 2015) - Pacific Potash Corporation (TSX VENTURE:PP) ("Pacific Potash" or the "Company") announces that it has received the approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") to its proposed consolidation of its common shares (each, a "Share") on the basis of ten (10) pre-consolidation Shares for one (1) post-consolidation Share (the "Consolidation"). Effective at opening on September 14, 2015, the Company's Shares will commence trading on the Exchange on a consolidated basis under a new CUSIP number 694781204 and ISIN CA 6947812047. The 119,300,396 Shares currently issued and outstanding will be reduced to 11,930,040 Shares upon the Consolidation. The Company's name and trading symbol will remain the same.

Letters of transmittal with respect to the Consolidation will be mailed to all registered shareholders requesting them to send their pre-consolidated share certificates with a properly executed letter of transmittal to the Company's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, in accordance with the instructions provided in the letter of transmittal, to receive post-consolidation share certificates.

No certificates representing fractional Shares will be issued in connection with the Consolidation and, in the event a shareholder would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional Share in connection with the Consolidation, the number of Shares to be received by such shareholder shall be rounded to the next lowest whole number of Shares and no cash amount shall be payable in respect of such fractional shares.

The Company will also be consolidating its outstanding options and warrants on a ratio of ten (10) to one (1), with the result that each consolidated option and warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Share at an exercise price of ten (10) times its original exercise price. Pursuant to the terms of the outstanding options and warrants, the Company is not obligated to issue factional Shares upon exercise of any such options or warrants and, therefore, any Shares issuable post-consolidation upon the exercise of any outstanding options or warrants shall be rounded down to the nearest whole Share.

On behalf of the Board,

Pacific Potash Corporation

Tao Liu, Chief Executive Officer and Director
