Big Quill Resources, Canada’s largest producer of potassium sulphate is pleased to announce it has completed an agreement with Soda Blast International B.V. from Amsterdam, Netherlands with the European company becoming an equity partner in Big Quill. This new investment represents 4% of the Class “A” shares of Big Quill. Through this strategic alliance a long term exclusive supply agreement for specific potassium sulphate products was also concluded. This market supply agreement provides Big Quill Resources expanded access into the European markets.

Amongst the worlds SOP producers, Big Quill Resources manufactures some of the highest purity potassium sulphate products. Big Quill’s potassium sulphate products are marketed throughout North America and Europe and are used as a fertilizer applied in agriculture and lawn and turf, and in industrial applications, for example, drywall manufacturing and oil and gas exploration. This new equity investment will allow Big Quill’s management to continue to invest in capital improvements at its manufacturing plant to reduce production costs for its traditional SOP products and to also begin to produce a host of other new unique high purity potassium sulphate products for new market opportunities.

The Wynyard company which employs 30 people has expanded seven times in the past 15 years. In 2005 Big Quill received an investment of 2.8 million from the Golden Opportunities Fund, Saskatchewan’s first and largest Provincial Labour Fund providing them with majority interest in the Company. Grant Kook, CEO and Chairman of Golden Opportunities states, “The investment by Soda Blast reconfirms the world wide interest in Big Quill and its products. We saw tremendous potential in the Company when we invested and their continued growth in alliance with major partners is no surprise.”

Soda Blast International B.V. is primarily focused in the abrasive cleaning markets throughout the world. Mr. Roger Nupdal, Executive Chairman, indicates, “We are pleased to have Soda Blast International B.V. as a strategic investor, customer and alliance not only at the Board level but to expand our presence in the European markets.” Mr. Nupdal went on to say that “This investment reinforces one of the objectives the Board established for Big Quill in 2001, to form alliances with companies in the industry that have an established sales force, distribution network and a customer base for specific potassium sulphate products.”
