        TORONTO, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - (TSX: SCP) - Sprott Resource Corp. ("SRC") today  announced that it has purchased 45,289,000 common shares of Waseca Energy Inc.

"We are pleased to partner with an experienced oil and gas exploration  and development team that has had historical success at growing production,"  said Kevin Bambrough, SRC President & CEO. "We believe that with financing in  place, especially at a time when financing is not available for most, the  Waseca team is well positioned to explore and develop its existing land base  and add to it through additional acquisitions. We also have the ability to  provide additional capital to Waseca if larger, attractive acquisition  opportunities arise."      Waseca President and Chief Operating Officer, Michael Watson, commented,  "We are extremely pleased to have SRC as our major shareholder, a firm whose  expertise as an investor in the resource sector is well recognized.
