Sprott Resource Corp. Announces Intention to Complete Buy Out of Mantaro Group's Interest in Phosphate Project

        /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."      SRC is working towards completing a NI 43-101 compliant Geological  Report, which it expects to be completed by the end of this quarter.        About Sprott Resource Corp.
