Sprott Buys 13% of New World
| ||Vancouver, BC: New World Resource Corp. (the "Company") announces that Sprott Asset Management Inc. ("Sprott") has acquired, as portfolio manager, 2 million units at $0.80 each on the closing of a private placement announced March 3, 2006.|
Sprott now holds approximately 13% of the Company, with the right to increase its position by an additional 6%, upon the full exercise of share purchase warrants that formed part of the unit placement.
The financing realized gross proceeds of $1.6 million. Net proceeds will be used to fund the first phase of the Company's planned exploration program on its Lipeña high- grade gold and copper project in southwestern Bolivia and for working capital.
In consideration of its services as agent for the private placement, Pacific International Securities Inc. received a commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds, in cash and units, and 180,000 compensation options.
All units and the compensation options are subject to a hold period that will expire on August 29, 2006.
Separately, the Company notes that warrants to purchase 1.5 million shares of the Company at a price of $1.00 per share, issued pursuant to a brokered private placement that closed on November 16, 2004, will expire on May 16, 2006.
About the Lipeña Project
The Lipeña project is located in the department of Potosí, a prolific historical mining province in south-west Bolivia, near the Argentine border. Lipeña is a high grade copper, gold and silver prospect that is hosted in a magmatic hydrothermal breccia system.
Between 1995 and 1997, a subsidiary of the former Battle Mountain Gold Company (collectively, "Battle Mountain") drilled a total of 12,690 meters in 44 drill holes (21 reverse circulation and 13 diamond drill holes) (see the Company's news release dated January 26, 2006). The Company has finished compiling all available Battle Mountain exploration data for entry into a GIS program to assist in designing the exploration program. A detailed geological map is currently being prepared and announcement of the commencement of an initial drill program to verify a selection of historical intercepts is expected shortly.
The Company has an option to acquire a 75% interest in a joint venture on the Lipeña project from Empresa Minera Unificada Sociedad Anomina ("EMUSA"), one of Bolivia's largest mining concerns.
