NR 80 – Liberty Star and NPX Metals Enter Revised Agreement on Gold-Silver Nevada Property

Tucson, Arizona – October 22, 2008 – Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (the “Company” LBSU: OTCBB) announces that it has signed an agreement to sell its option land at the Providence Project to NPX Metals Inc (“NPX”). The option land, adjacent to land already held by NPX, is believed to host commercially relevant quantities of disseminated gold and silver in Nevada’s historic Beatty Mining District.

The Company’s option which was obtained at little cost and forms the northwestern pit wall of the Montgomery-Shoshone (M-S) open pit, last mined in the1990’s by Barrick Bull Frog Mining Company a subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corp. and others for disseminated gold and silver.   The mineral zone appears to continue from the M-S open pit on to the Providence Project, but has yet to be drill tested for precious metal mineralization (NR 74, April 29, 2008).
In general, the terms set forth in the sales agreement made during the summer of 2008, with revisions October 15, 2008, provide that the Company will assign its interest in the Providence Project option land to NPX for $200,000. The two companies have also agreed that NPX will hire Liberty Star to provide exploration and development services on the project area. The Liberty Star geology team has begun field work in the area.
