TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2012) - Ethiopian Potash Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FED)(TSX VENTURE:FED.WT) ("EPC" or the "Company") wishes to clarify an unauthorized press release issued February 13th (yesterday) by a former employee of the Company.
EPC has been made aware that a former employee of EPC has issued a press release naming the Company and announcing his resignation to the public. This press release issued over Canada Newswire was widely disseminated to investors, given the unauthorized use of EPC's name in the subject line.
The Company wishes to confirm the employee's resignation as a non-material event regarding a non-senior employee and, further, is puzzled by the unauthorized use of EPC's name on his behalf. The Company confirms that all claims and licenses continue to be in good standing, and that the Company continues with its successful drilling campaign, and will release results to the public as soon as they become available.
EPC is aware that the press release itself as well as its content may have caused confusion amongst its investors and is investigating how an unauthorized non-material press release was issued and widely distributed without the consent of the Company.
