New World Announces Expiry of Letter of Intent for Proposed Sale of Lithium Assets to Li3 Energy, Inc.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 23, 2012) - New World Resource Corp. ("New World" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NW)(FRANKFURT:NWU) announces that the letter of intent dated January 19, 2012 as amended March 4, 2012 with Li3 Energy, Ltd. ("Li3") related to the proposed sale of the Company's lithium assets to Li3 has expired due to the inability of the Company and Li3 to agree on the definitive terms of the transaction. The board of directors of New World has elected not to extend negotiations any further.

The Company will continue to pursue and evaluate other means of commercializing the Company's lithium assets and management will continue to investigate strategic partnership opportunities to further develop the project and enhance the value of the Company's other lithium asset; a 18% interest in Perfect Lithium Corp., a privately held lithium technology company.
