Prophecy Resource Corp Announces Mine Commission Inspection Complete at Ulaan Ovoo in Mongolia. First Coal Shipment to Power Plant in Progress.

Vancouver, British Columbia, October14, 2010: Prophecy Resource Corp. ("Prophecy" or the "Company") (TSX-V:PCY, OTCQX: PRPCF, Frankfurt: 1P2)  announces that an official government commission appointed by the Mongolian Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy conducted the final permit inspection at Prophecy's Ulaan Ovoo mine site on October 4, 2010.

The permit inspection is the final step required for Prophecy to commence production operations at Ulaan Ovoo. During the October 4th visit, the commission, consisting of eight officials, drew satisfactory conclusions and Prophecy was instructed by the commission to begin coal production at the mine site and advised that receipt of the mine permit is imminent.

Prophecy advises that various members of the Mongolian media have recently publicized the official commissioning of the Ulaan Ovoo mine. The Company wishes to make its shareholders aware of this situation and that it has not endorsed and will not comment further on Mongolian press reports regarding mine commissioning until Prophecy has received the final permit from the Mongolian Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy.

At present time, Leighton and Prophecy have deployed over 50 staff at Ulaan Ovoo with a full line of mining equipment to start production at the rate of 120,000 tonnes a month. Over 2 million tonnes of waste have already been removed to expose the project's massive coal seam at surface. Prophecy is looking to become the second Canadian company after SouthGobi Resources Ltd to receive a permit to mine in Mongolia.

Contract coal shipment to local power plants and beyond

Based on positive dialogue with the Mongolian Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy, Prophecy is pleased to provide 10,000 tonnes of coal as a trial run to power stations in Darkhan and Erdenet, Mongolia's largest cities behind its capital Ulaanbaatar. At the Ministry's request, Prophecy has commenced mining and trucked the first coal shipment to Sukhbaatar rail station, ready to be transported to Darkhan power plant by rail.
Ulaan Ovoo is 10km from the Russian border and within 120km from Nauski TransSiberian railway station, enabling transportation of coal to Russia and by extension to Russia's eastern seaports.

The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Danniel Oosterman P. Geo, a Prophecy geologist and also a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.
