Despite best efforts, Potash Ridge and Canada Coal were not able to reach definitive terms in connection with a proposed transaction and accordingly both companies have allowed the LOI to expire. 

Potash Ridge will now seek other potential buyers for the Valleyfield Project, while focusing on developing its Blawn Project in Utah. 

"We remain confident that we will able to find a buyer for the Valleyfield Project given the continuing strong market for sulphate of potash," stated Andrew Squires, the Corporation's CEO.
