 SASKATOON, Saskatchewan, Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (NYSE: POT, Toronto, Montreal: POT) (PCS) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, PCS Sales, signed an agreement with Horizon Potash Corp. to be its exclusive sales agent. Horizon Gold Corp. of Golden, Colo. has just completed the purchase of the former Amax Potash mine in Carlsbad, N.M. which will now be known as Horizon Potash Corp.
 Acting as the exclusive sales agent for Horizon Potash, PCS Sales will cover both North American and international markets.

Historically, sales have been split almost equally between the domestic and offshore markets with Latin America as its primary offshore customer.
 "We are very pleased with this agreement," stated Bill Doyle, president of PCS Sales. "We know our marketing expertise coupled with Horizon's production capability will mutually benefit both ourselves and Horizon."
