/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/ TORONTO, April 30 /CNW/ - (TSX:SCP) - Sprott Resource Corp. ("SRC") today announced that it has signed a letter of intent with Lara Exploration Ltd. and two individual geologists (collectively the "Mantaro Group") to purchase their future interests under the option and exploration agreement entered into between SRC and the Mantaro Group on November 15, 2007 (the "Original Agreement") (see November 16, 2007 press release). Under the Original Agreement, had SRC elected to exercise its option, the Mantaro Group would have been entitled to receive 20% of the shares of a new project company formed on a Qualifying Transaction, as well as payments of US$2 million. The Mantaro Group has agreed to sell its future 20% interest in a new project company for 1,771,308 common shares of SRC and US$1.5 million in cash, along with additional cash payments of up to US$4 million conditional on certain required community agreements, permits and licenses. The proposed transactions are subject to the execution and delivery of a definitive agreement. "I would like to thank the Mantaro Group for its support and the confidence it has shown in us by electing to accept common shares of SRC rather than cash," stated Kevin Bambrough, President and CEO of SRC. The restructuring of this project will allow us to have full control of the project, which will enable us to explore opportunities with joint venture partners, potential management groups and liquidity options. We are very excited about the potential of this project, especially given current prices of phosphate rock and phosphate based fertilizers."
