MANAUS, BRAZIL, April 29, 2024 – Brazil Potash Corp. (“Brazil Potash” or the “Company”), through its 100% owned subsidiary company, Potássio do Brasil, received three additional Installation Licenses (LIs) on Friday, April 26th from the Amazon State Environmental Protection Agency (IPAAM), for construction of the Autazes Potash Project in the municipality of Autazes, 112 km away from Manaus. The three LI’s are for construction of a river port on the banks of the Madeira River, a stockpile at the port, and to drill two water collection wells for the Autazes Potash Project.  This brings the total LI’s issued to four out of a total anticipated of eleven for the Autazes Potash Project construction with the remaining LI’s expected to be issued imminently.

The capacity of the new river barge port will have a higher capacity than the existing ports in the Northern Arc (Itacoatiara, Vila do Conde, and Santarém) combined, which are the main route of entry for imported fertilizers in the Amazon Basin at around 1.7 million tons. Potássio do Brasil’s port near the village of Urucurituba, in Autazes, alone, will supply 2.4 million tons of potash all targeting domestic farmers in Brazil.

The Company’s first license for construction of the mine shafts and underground workings was issued on April 8th, at an event attended by Amazon State Governor Wilson Lima and the President of IPAAM, Juliano Valente, along with several other government authorities including but not limited to Vice-Governor Tadeu de Souza; state deputies Sinésio Campos, Alessandra Campelo, Abdala Fraxe, Adjuto Afonso, João Luís; federal deputy Silas Câmara; the president of the Amazonian Association of Municipalities and Mayor of Rio Preto da Eva, Anderson Souza; the Mayor of Autazes, Andreson Cavalcante; the Mayor of Humaitá, Dedei Lobo; Secretaries of State, including the Energy, Mining, Oil and Gas, Ronney Peixoto; representatives of the commercial sectors and representatives from Mura indigenous people.

It is important to reiterate Potássio do Brasil complied with United Nations International Labor Organization Convention (ILO-169), which provides for free, prior, informed, and good-faith consultation with indigenous populations for the Autazes Potash Project. During this process, the Autazes Potash Project was approved by more than 90% of the 34 villages out of a total of 36 that compose the Mura people of Autazes which far exceeds the thresholds set by the Mura of having 60% participation in the vote with support of at least 60% of the people voting.

Since receiving the first LI, Brazil Potash has already started activities to implement the Autazes Potash Project, with the preparation of detailed engineering studies, an exhaustive review of the schedule of activities, and quotations for critical path services, including the drilling of a second geotechnical hole about 1,000 meters deep to obtain critical technical information for shaft sinking and construction.

“With Installation Licenses being granted for the mine, port, port stockpile and two water collection wells  the Company is ready to start construction activities in the field, with the mobilization of personnel and equipment, within the areas foreseen and approved by the environmental agency”, highlighted the president of Potássio do Brasil, Adriano Espeschit.

The Company has also started to receive resumes from those interested in working on the Autazes Potash Project. A specific page was created on the Company’s website for interested people to submit their resumes http// In less than three weeks, hundreds of expressions of interest have been received showing the strong interest from the community to participate in Autazes Potash Project construction.

For potential suppliers of goods and services, the Company has also created a tab on the website and has also received a large volume of inbounds. Presentations on the Autazes Potash Project are planned for the coming weeks for those interested in participating in the contracting processes of products and services during the construction phase and, later, during the anticipated 25 years of operation of the Autazes Potash Project.
