World Fertilizer,

Focus Ventures Ltd. has reported that Gordon Tainton has been appointed President and a Director of the company. Mr. Tainton brings many years of experience in the international fertilizer and financial markets and will succeed David Cass who is stepping down as President. David will remain as a Director and continue to provide services as a consultant to the company.

Mr. Tainton has over 25 years of experience at senior management levels in various sectors of the fertilizer industry, including inspection and testing services across all nutrients, distribution, port/terminal development, trading, shipping, off-take agreements, and project finance.

Simon Ridgway, Chairman of Focus, commented: "On behalf of the Board I would like to welcome Gordon to the team. It has become clear from discussions with potential partners in the fertilizer industry that the Company would benefit greatly with leadership from an expert in fertilizers with the knowledge to know the value drivers in this industry. Gordon brings these attributes and we look forward to his input in guiding the Company to achieve its vision of becoming a Phosphate producer. I would like to take this opportunity to thank David Cass for his tireless efforts since 2008 as Focus' President, which led to the discovery of the Bayovar 12 deposit and the completion of a positive Pre-Feasibility Study for the project. We look forward to his continued contributions at board level going forward."
