Sprott Resource Corp. Announces Intention to Develop 43-101 Resource at Mantaro Phosphate Deposit

        /NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN      THE UNITED STATES/        TORONTO, Nov. 22 /CNW/ - Sprott Resource Corp. ("SRC") today provided  further details regarding its development plans for the Mantaro Phosphate  project, located in Peru. Recently SRC announced that it had signed an  exploration and option agreement with Lara Exploration Ltd. ("Lara" LRA.V) and  other members of the Mantaro Group, under which SRC has the option to acquire  a 100% interest in the project (see press release November 16, 2007).      "We are proposing to undertake additional exploration work, beneficiation  studies and market analysis to develop sufficient data for preparation of an  NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate, and to complete a prefeasibility study  for development of the property," said Kevin Bambrough, President and CEO  Sprott Resource Corp. "Our team believes the Mantaro phosphate deposit  provides an excellent opportunity to participate in the expanding global  market for phosphate-based fertilizers for production of food and biofuels."      SRC believes that the Mantaro deposit is ideally located in Sincos, Junin  Department, approximately 30 km west from Huancayo, a significant regional  city with a population of 300,000, and approximately 200 km east of Lima.  Infrastructure in the area is excellent, with paved highway access from Lima  and railway access from Huancayo to Lima and the port of Calloa. High tension  and local distribution electrical power lines cross the property. Sulphuric  acid for conversion of phosphate concentrate to fertilizer is available from  Doe Run Corporation at La Oroya, approximately 75 km from Sincos, and at  chemical production facilities in Lima. Peru is an attractive mining  jurisdiction with a modern, organized mining code, favourable provisions for  foreign investment and a well-trained and highly qualified pool of geologists  and mining and mineral process engineers.      The Mantaro phosphate deposit was originally discovered and claimed by  the Peruvian company Minera Mantaro S.A. and later acquired and explored in  the 1960s by Cerro de Pasco Corporation. Exploration work by Cerro de Pasco  through the early 1970s outlined a mineralized zone extending more than 12 km  along the Mancaspico syncline. Trench and drill samples returned an average of  approximately 15% P(2)O(5) over an average deposit thickness of 24 metres. The  deposit dips at approximately 45 degrees and is open pittable. In the late  1990s, Zublin Mining of Chile and Doe Run (Peru) Corporation conducted  additional exploration work. This work encompassed additional trenching and  mineral characterization studies, bulk sampling and mineral beneficiation  testing. In addition, in 2001 Bateman Phosphate Technologies completed a  scoping study.      Total phosphate resources in the central portion of the property have  been estimated by Cerro de Pasco in the 1960s to be in the range of 300 MM to  750 MM tonnes. Based on surface trenching and drilling conducted by Zublin,  Doe Run and Cerro de Pasco, the Bateman study determined an "inferred  resource" estimate of 61 MM tonnes. Beneficiation test work conducted by  Bateman concluded it was possible to produce a concentrate grading in excess  of 32% P(2)O(5) and that the concentrate was amenable to production of  phosphate fertilizer.        Please note that the resource estimate by Cerro de Pasco is an historical  estimate and neither this estimate nor the Bateman estimate of "inferred  resources" conform to the mineral resource and mineral reserve estimation and  reporting requirements as defined in NI 43-101 and should not be relied upon.  The historical estimate is being presented for information purposes only. SRC  is not treating the historical resource estimate as a current mineral resource  or mineral reserve as defined in sections 1.2 and 1.3 of NI 43-101. However,  this historical estimate is considered by SRC to be relevant because it is  based on surface trenching, limited drilling and sample assays covering the  extent of the deposit and appear to be representative of the deposit as a  whole. The potential quantity and grade of the deposit is conceptual in  nature. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource  and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being  delineated as a mineral resource.
