Private Placement Arranged for $507,500

October 10, 2007 - Prophecy Resource Corp. (TSX.V: PCY) has agreed to a non-brokered private placement of up to 1,450,000 flow-through units at a price of $0.35 per unit. Each unit will consist of one common share of the company and one half share purchase warrant, with each full warrant exercisable into one additional common share of the Company for a period of eighteen months from closing at an exercise price of $0.45 per share. Finders fees will be payable on a portion this placement, with the net proceeds being used for exploration of the Company's Okeover copper/molybdenum property located on the B.C. coast. This placement is subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Okeover property encompasses 3,900 hectares (15 square miles) of mineral claims centered on the Bunster Hills, east of Okeover Inlet, and located 20 km north of Powell River. In late 2006, N.C. Carter, PhD, P.Eng. completed a technical report on the property pursuant to National Instrument 43-101 that estimated an inferred mineral resource for the North Lake Zone of 86.8 million tonnes grading 0.31% copper and 0.014% MoS2 at a 0.20% copper cut-off grade (approximately 593 Million lbs of copper and 15 million lbs of MoS2 ).

Drilling is currently scheduled to begin at Okeover in mid-October. The October drill program will continue to delineate the North Lake Zone, which is one of eight prospective zones identified at Okeover, but will also explore the South Breccia area, which has not had any significant exploration work undertaken for more than ten years.

The South Breccia area is a hydrothermal breccia first recognized in 1979. Between 1966 and 1977, seven corporations, including Noranda, Falconbridge and Asarco Exploration completed 14,000 metres of diamond drilling at Okeover. In 1979, two years following these campaigns, logging activities exposed the South Breccia Zone approximately 3.5 kilometres south of the North Lake Zone. In 1979, Aquarius Resources Ltd. completed three holes in this then newly discovered area (205 metres in total) with results which included 1.49% Copper over 9 metres in hole 79-2 and 0.49% Copper over 21 metres in hole 79-3. In 1996, Canquest Resource Corp. drilled a single 154 metre deep hole with the strongest mineralization in that hole (0.21% Cu) occurring at the bottom. A review of this drill hole indicates that it may have stopped short (to the east) of the South Breccia Zone. In addition, surface trenching returned assays of 2.4% copper and 0.52% MoS2 across a 12 metre width. Geological mapping of the area peripheral to the South Breccia discovery outcrop indicates that brecciation and silicification extend over an area of at least 300 metres by 600 metres, offering substantial potential for discovery.

This flow-through financing will enable Prophecy to satisfy the requirement of $1,000,000 in exploration at Okeover in order to earn its 60% joint venture interest in what we believe may prove to be a significant copper/molybdenum project located near infrastructure on the B.C. coast.
