Allana arranges $10-million private placement with IFC

2011-03-24 10:14 ET - News Release

Mr. Farhad Abasov reports


Allana Potash Corp., has arranged a non-brokered private placement with International Finance Corp., a member of the World Bank Group, for 6.25 million units at a price of $1.60 per unit for gross proceeds of $10-million. Each unit shall consist of one common share in the capital of the company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant exercisable for $2.08 for a period of three years from the date of the issue.

Farhad Abasov, president and chief executive officer, commented: "I am very pleased to welcome IFC as a proposed strategic investor in Allana. This investment will be a strong testament to the merits of our potash project in Ethiopia. IFC is one of the largest multilateral financing organizations contributing to the development of key mining, infrastructure and industrial projects worldwide by investing $18-billion in fiscal 2010 alone. This is an important development not only for Allana but also for Ethiopia. Our board and senior management team have carefully evaluated the merits of an investment of this nature at this stage in Allana's growth, and have unanimously decided that the support that IFC can provide to us in Ethiopia is significant. In addition, we believe that developing a strong relationship with IFC places Allana in a very solid position to secure possible future debt financing from IFC and other international organizations for the construction of a potash mine in Ethiopia."

IFC has done a thorough due diligence on Allana's potash project. As part of its due diligence process, IFC has completed a site visit and conducted technical, environmental, social, financial and market analyses. As part of IFC's proposed investment, Allana will be required to meet IFC's environmental, social and safety standards in the continuing and future development of its project. Allana and IFC personnel have already begun to evaluate Allana's current programs to ensure that Allana has appropriate environmental and social management systems in place, and that the Dallol potash projects will benefit local communities, as well as Ethiopia in general. In connection with the offering, IFC shall have certain rights, including without limitation, information, policy and pre-emptive rights.

The company plans to use the net proceeds from the offering to finance a drilling program and feasibility study for the company's main asset, its Ethiopian potash property in the Danakhil evaporate basin, and for general corporate purposes.

Closing of the offering is anticipated to occur on or about May 1, 2011, and is subject to the receipt of all required approvals, including without limitation approval of IFC's board of directors and the receipt of all applicable regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The common shares and the common shares issuable upon the exercise of the warrants will be subject to a statutory hold period for four months and one day following the closing date.

Ethiopian Potash Project

Three potash concessions (Dallol Potash Project) locatedin Ethiopia’s northeastern Danakil Depression totalingapproximately 150 square kilometers. The potash mineralization in the Danakil Depression is well known with small-scale potash mining carried out intermittently from the early 1900s.Allana’s project has been previously explored. TheUS-based Parsons potash company drilled nearly300 drill holes from 1958-1967 and even sanka shaft to conduct underground mining.

Major Advantages

Allana has completed a NI 43-101 compliant technicalreport for the three concessions. The technical report highlighted several unique advantages of this project:

·         An inferred mineral resource of 105,200,000 tonnes of potash mineralization (Sylvite and Kainite) with a composite grade of 20.8% KCl

·         Near-surface (shallow-depth) potash mineralization (within 50 meters of surface)

·         Potential for solution or open-pit potash mining

·         16 drill holes immediately on Allana’s property

·         Unique environment that may provide for low-costproduction utilizing solar evaporation and geothermal power

·         MOP (muriate of potash) and SOP (sulphate of potash) production are both feasible Identifying a historical drill hole Sampling brines at Dallol Mountain on Allana’s Potash Project


Ethiopia – Strong Economic Growth and Attractive Investment Climate

The Ethiopian government is strongly supportive of mining initiatives in the country. Allana’s relationship with the Ethiopian government is very strong and will greatly assist rapid advancement of the project.

Ethiopia is the oldest independent country in Africa. The macro-economic environment has been stable, experiencing double-digit growth since 2003. Most major economic sectors have been liberalized. Government guarantees as stated in Ethiopia’s Investment Code (1991) are provided to foreign investors, in addition to providing constitutional protection from expropriation. Ethiopia is a member of the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) and the Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes between States and Nationals of Other States.

Strong Management With Successful Track Record

Allana has strong management and board to develop its Ethiopian potash project. The company is stewarded by Farhad Abasov with a solid track record of building successful resource companies in potash, uranium and energy sectors.  Most recently, Mr. Abasov was in a senior management position with a uranium company before it was sold to a larger uranium producer for $1.8 billion in 2007. The uranium company was listed on the TSX and was one of the only two uranium companies listed on New York Stock Exchange
