Plains Creek Retains BMO Capital Markets As Financial Advisor And Advises That The Bankable Feasibility Study Will Be Extended To April 2012

VANCOUVER, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Plains Creek Phosphate Corporation ("Plains Creek", the "Company") (TSXV: PCP) is pleased to announce that it has retained BMO Capital Markets as its financial advisor to assist the Company in obtaining a strategic partner and offtake agreements as part of the development of the Farim Phosphate Project ("Farim", the "Project"). The Company continues to advance the Project towards completion of its Bankable Feasibility Study in April 2012.

"We are very excited about the opportunity to engage BMO Capital Markets as our financial advisor to assist in the ongoing development of our phosphate project. We have received considerable attention in regards to potential strategic partners and off-take arrangements for the Farim phosphate project and believe it is advantageous to seek a financial advisor in this endeavour. BMO has a strong track record especially in the Fertilizer sector." said Glenn Laing, President and CEO of Plains Creek.

Bankable Feasibility Update

Previous studies of the proposed mining method for the Project have been based on a wet mining method of using dredges to excavate the unconsolidated sand / silt overburden and the underlying phosphate horizon.

Investigations by Golder Associates, the Company's mining engineering consultants, have recognised that a dry mining method using trucks, shovels and draglines may be a more efficient and more practical method of mining the Farim phosphate deposit. In order to confirm the dry mining option recommendations it will be necessary to carry out additional hydrogeological and geotechnical drilling and field work in addition to the work that has already been carried out to date as part of the Bankable Feasibility Study. Due to the rainy season that is currently underway at Farim, access to potential drill sites is difficult to complete the necessary drilling. As a result, drilling programs will restart in mid October 2011 with expected completion of the Bankable Feasibility Study on April 2012.
