New World Begins Second Drill Program at Lipena, Bolivia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 1, 2006) - New World Resource Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NW) reports that it has commenced its second drill program at the Lipena project, in Bolivia. One drill is on site, with a second rig expected to arrive shortly.

The work initially will comprise approximately 3,000 metres of diamond drilling with a view to build a NI 43-101 compliant resource on the project's Lipena zone and to test new exploration targets at the Central and the La Mosa zones. Mineralization at Lipena is hosted in a tourmaline breccia with a complex morphology. In order to explore the deposit meaningfully, drilling at the Lipena zone will be on a tightly spaced grid.

Lipena Geology

Analysis of the core from the Company's first drill program at Lipena has revealed that the majority of the fragments caught up in the tourmaline breccia have undergone intense potassic alteration. Clasts of porphyritic dacite with disseminated chalcopyrite are present within the breccia. This analysis is understood to suggest that the breccia may be the top level expression of a deeper copper-gold porphyry system.
