Purebase Corporation Announces Drought Management Solutions

YUBA CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 5, 2015) - Purebase (OTCQB: PUBC) continued product development advances to help farmers deal with the current Western US and worldwide drought crisis.

In 2014 approximately 9 million acres of high value crop lands were being irrigated in California. Reducing the water use and/or irrigated farmland as a drought solution is a short term reaction to the problem -- a reaction which has a significant negative impact on farmers and ultimately the loss of thousands of farm jobs.

A more practical and farsighted solution is to implement a soil improvement program which offers an immediate reduction in water consumption and lays the foundation for long term sustainable, organic water management strategies to better control growing conditions.

Purebase is engineering a solution that helps alleviate drought hardships as part of sustainable water optimization management. Within our Agricultural division our technical team is designing a customizable "DMP" (drought mitigation program), that includes the utilization of granular and solution grade "Nutri-mendments™" (Humate INU®, Solu-Sul® and Porosinite™), which naturally maximize the water retention capacity of soils. Water retention can increase by as much as 30%.

Our CEO, Scott Dockter, explains the strategy this way, "This is not the first major drought to hit California or many other areas of the world, and it will not be the last. Simply turning off the taps meets the immediate need for water conservation but it hurts farmers. Public and private agencies need to help farmers find a permanent, sustainable solution which reduces water consumption without sacrificing crop yield. Purebase's water retentive soil amendment products will meet and exceed the immediate need for a 25% reduction in water consumption. Making this fiscally responsible investment provides a sustainable, economically viable solution reaching beyond the challenges of the current drought."

Purebase is formulating a solution to help.
