Allana Potash Clarifies Status of Its Economic Analysis

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 12, 2010) - Allana Potash Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AAA - News; "Allana" or the "Company"), is issuing the following news release to clarify its disclosure.The Company's September 2010 Corporate Presentation, available on Allana's website, previously referred to a "preliminary assessment report" by ERCOSPLAN. This reference was to the ERCOSPLAN "Preliminary Resource Assessment Study" dated October 30, 2008 (amended and restated December 10, 2008, December 22, 2008 and February 5, 2009) filed on SEDAR. The company clarifies that it has not completed a preliminary economic assessment on its potash resource (as defined in NI 43-101).In addition, during Mr. Farhad Abasov's recently held interview, Mr. Abasov stated that the 'potential exists to increase the inferred resource by at least 5 to 10 times'. Allana wishes to clarify that the above disclosure of exploration potential is not compliant with NI 43-101 requirements for disclosure of a potential mineral deposit or exploration target, and retracts guidance about potential additional quantity ranges. Although Allana management believes that based on current and historical drilling there is potential to increase the mineral deposit, there can be no assurances that further drilling will result in delineation of additional potash resources.Following completion of the 2010 drill program, the Company plans to update its mineral resource estimate and will announce any material changes to its resources when received.About Allana Potash Corp.Allana is a publicly traded corporation with a focus on the acquisition and development of potash assets internationally with its major focus on a previously explored potash property in Ethiopia with an Inferred Mineral Resource of 105 million tonnes of potash mineralization (Sylvite and Kainite) with a composite grade of 20.8 % KCl (see News Release Sept. 17, 2008).
