Sprott Resource Corp. and Altius form potash joint venture in Canada

        /NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN      THE UNITED STATES/        TORONTO, May 6 /CNW/ - (TSX:SCP) - Sprott Resource Corp. ("SRC")  announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Altius to explore  for potash in the St. George's Basin in Southwestern Newfoundland.      "SRC is excited to be working with Altius, a company with great  exploration expertise and proven success in Eastern Canada. We feel that there  are excellent opportunities for potash exploration in Eastern Canada, which  has a lower cost profile than the Saskatchewan Potash Basin," states Kevin  Bambrough, President and CEO of SRC.      The St. George's Basin is geologically analogous to the Moncton sub-basin  in New Brunswick, which is Canada's second major potash mining district.      Under the agreement SRC may earn an interest in a large land package that  has been assembled by Altius to cover several known potash occurrences within  the basin. SRC may earn up to a 60% interest in the St. George's Project by  spending C$2,500,000 over 4 years subject to an underlying 2% gross sales  royalty retained by Altius.      The St. Georges project consists of 1,400 claims (35,000 hectares) to  cover four primary target areas for potash deposits. These targets feature  historical potash drill intercepts, low gravity anomalies and salt springs  that are underlain by a relatively unexplored evaporite-bearing sequence. An  exploration program to evaluate the area and to identify drill targets has  commenced.      In addition to the St. George's Basin joint venture, Altius and SRC have  also signed a strategic alliance regarding the assessment of potash  exploration opportunities in Canada. Under this agreement, the two parties  have agreed to collaborate in the acquisition and exploration of potash  projects in Canada.        About Altius        Altius' business activities include the generation and acquisition of  projects related to natural resources opportunities mainly located in  Newfoundland & Labrador.
