New World Resource Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NW)(FRANKFURT:NWU) wishes to announce the closing of the third and final tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement by issuing 331,140 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.40 for gross proceeds of $132,456.

The Company issued 2,320,000 Units on March 4, 2011 and 4,082,000 Units on March 11, 2011, which together with the final tranche raised total gross proceeds of $2,693,256.

Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of one share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant (a "Warrant") entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.60 until March 17, 2012. There was no finders' fee paid in connection with the final tranche of the private placement. The Units, in the final tranche, are subject to a 4-month hold period expiring July 18, 2011.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund a drill program to increase the current 43-101 compliant resource on the Company's Lipeña copper-gold project (the 43-101 resource estimate report can be seen on the Company's website; http://www.newworldresource.com/i/pdf/NW_Lipena_43101_112508.pdf), for further resource definition on the Company's Pastos Grandes lithium-potash brine project and for general working capital.
