Raises Additional £2 million


African Potash Limited, an investing company focussed on potash assets within sub-Saharan Africa, is pleased to announce that as envisaged in its Admission Document it has raised a further £2 million through the issue of 40 million new Ordinary Shares at 5 pence per share.  These funds are in addition to the £4.185 million raised by way of a placing of Ordinary Shares in conjunction with the Company's admission to AIM on 30 September 2011.  The funds raised will be used to implement the Company's investing strategy focussed on acquiring or investing in potash assets or projects in sub-Saharan Africa and advancing these through the exploration and development cycle.
