Sprott Resource Corp. announces current holdings of gold and silver bullion

        TORONTO, Dec. 15 /CNW/ - (TSX:SCP) - Sprott Resource Corp. ("SRC")  announced today that it has acquired during this quarter 40,475 ounces of gold  bullion and 852,478 ounces of silver bullion. The balance of SRC's working  capital is in short-term government of Canada treasury bills.      "We intend to continue to look for attractive investment opportunities to  allocate our capital while working on building accretive businesses," said  Kevin Bambrough, President and CEO of SRC. "In the interim, we feel it is  prudent to allocate a portion of our working capital into gold and silver  bullion. We may allocate a larger portion into gold and silver, or other  physical commodities, in the future depending on market conditions."      Kevin Bambrough continued: "Current yields on short-term government debt  are approaching, and in certain cases have reached, zero percent. This is  occurring while governments are assuming liabilities and issuing debt at an  unprecedented rate. We believe this situation is not sustainable over the  longer-term and that global creditors will begin to hoard hard assets, in  particular gold and silver, rather than purchase government debt that offers  little nominal yield and is subject to a loss in real value as currencies are  debased."
