Prophecy Reports 5 Major IP Anomalies and Commencement of Drilling at its Lynn Lake Project, Manitoba

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2010) - Prophecy Resource Corp. ("Prophecy" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PCY)(OTCQX:PRPCF)(FRANKFURT:1P2) announces the commencement of a 3,000 metre drilling program at its Lynn Lake Project, located in Lynn Lake, Manitoba. The drilling program is designed to test newly discovered targets from its recently completed Induced Polarization (IP) survey (see Prophecy Aug. 7, 2010 news). Five new target areas have been delineated using a proprietary deep-seeking IP-method that penetrates to depths that were previously unexplored through VTEM. The five anomalies have been dubbed the 'North', 'East', 'West', 'Middle-East', and 'Centre' anomalies based on their spatial distribution on the property.

The West anomaly occurs approximately 500 meters southwest of the A-shaft, and starts at 250 meters depth. The anomaly extends to at least 600 meters depth and remains open beyond the detection limits of the survey. It has a close spatial association with the 'G' deposit that occurs at the 3000 Level (914 meters from surface), which is below and just to the east of the West anomaly. The 'G' deposit has a NI 43-101 compliant Inferred resource of 296,000 tonnes of 0.8% nickel, 0.4% copper using a 0.7% nickel equivalent cut-off.

The Center-East anomaly occurs approximately 200 meters grid east of the Farley Shaft, and approximately 250 meters grid east of the historic 'B' open-pit. This anomaly occurs 250 metres from surface extending to greater than 600 meters depth on five grid lines over 300 meters length. The nearby Farley shaft provided access to the 'B' orebody which was mined using both open-pit and underground methods between 1952 and 1976. The mine produced a total of 4.3 Mt of 0.7% nickel and 0.5% copper during historic operations. The Center-East anomaly occurs at 250 metres from surface extending to greater than 600 meters depth. No historic drilling has been conducted in the target area.

The Centre anomaly occurs within 100 meters grid-south of the 'B' pit. The anomaly starts from 180 meters depth and extends past 600 meters from surface, and is seen on four gridlines for over a length of 250 meters.

The North Anomaly occurs in a remote swampy area on the north end of the property, and is seen over a length of four lines or over 250 meters length. It occurs as two separate anomalies overlying each other. One is a shallow anomaly centered at approximately 100 meters depth, the other anomaly is directly below this shallower expression, starting at approximately 300 meters depth.

The East anomaly centred 200 meters below the existing Disco deposit and is approximately 475 meters from surface that extends on gridlines to the south, for a total strike length of approximately 150 meters. This anomaly appears to increase in intensity with depth, beyond 610 meters from surface, where the survey was able to penetrate. The chargeability and resistivity strongly resemble that of known mineralization such as that of the 'N' orebody, which hosts an 11 MT Measured and Indicated resource (0.4 MT Measured, 10.7 MT Indicated) grading 0.6% nickel and 0.3% copper. (Please refer to Company's press release dated July 7, 2010 for complete details).

The current drill program is expected to take 8 to 10 weeks to complete and will test each of the targets where the anomalies have the strongest and clearest response.
