New World Recommences Program at Lipena, Bolivia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2008) - New World Resource Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NW) announces the immediate recommencing of its exploration program on the Lipena copper-gold project in southern Bolivia. The Company recently announced in a news release dated January 17, 2008, that it has signed a joint venture agreement with Corporacion Minera de Bolivia (COMIBOL) with respect to approximately 6,000 hectares of COMIBOL's Bonete mining concession. The relevant portion of the concession surrounds the Company's Lipena copper-gold project. COMIBOL is the Bolivian government entity that controls all mineral exploration on state owned lands. This new partnership with the Bolivian government entity gives us the confidence to resume exploration at Lipena and Bonete.

The program will focus on two aspects concurrently. One program will continue to further delineate and define the Lipena zone initially through an expanded magnetics survey and a deep penetrating three dimensional Induced Polarization (IP) survey. These geophysical surveys will be followed by diamond drilling with a goal to continue to delineate the Lipena zone to the southeast on to the Bonete concession. To date the Lipena zone is the most advanced of the three breccia bodies, however additional drilling is also required within the La Mosa and Central zone, as these areas have only undergone preliminary drilling. All three zones contain copper, gold and silver mineralization within a quartz-tourmaline breccia.

The second and concurrent exploration program will be regional in scope focusing on the Bonete concession. A magnetic survey, detailed mapping, prospecting, rock, soil and stream sediment sampling will all be undertaken. Historically the Bonete concession has received limited exploration however recent mineralization and alteration studies indicate that the known breccia at Lipena may represent the uppermost levels of a deeper copper-gold porphyry system in an area that has not been evaluated from a porphyry perspective. Of equal importance, it is common within this model type to have numerous quartz tourmaline breccia bodies. To date only three have been discovered. The planned regional program has been designed to identify drill targets to test for both a porphyry system and additional breccia bodies.

Quality Control and Assurance

Exploration work on the Lipena project will be under the supervision of Joan McCorquodale, P.Geo, the Company's Vice President, Exploration and a "qualified person" as defined in National Instrument 43-101. Ms. McCorquodale is responsible for the preparation of the technical information contained in this news release.
