Passport Potash Inc. Finalizes Cooperative Agreement with Hopi Tribe

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — (Marketwire) — 03/14/11 — Passport Potash Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PPI) is pleased to announce that it has finalized a cooperative agreement with the Hopi Tribe. Portions of Passport’s Holbrook Basin potash project are adjacent to land privately owned by the Hopi Tribe (not reservation land). The agreement sets up a cooperative arrangement between Passport and the Hopi Tribe, giving Passport access across the privately owned Hopi lands to conduct exploration activities, while allowing the Tribe to share in Passport’s study results.

 

Passport President Joshua Bleak commented: “The success of any major project will be bolstered by developing working relationships with the community. Finalizing this cooperative agreement with the Hopi Tribe is an important step in that direction, and we look forward to a productive relationship with the Tribe. We believe that cooperation with the communities, tribes, and landowners in the Holbrook Basin is key to the success of the project and will create win-win outcomes for all parties involved.”
