    CALGARY, Nov. 2 /CNW/ - Southern Pacific Resource Corp. (the
"Corporation") (STP - TSX Venture) announces that it has amended the terms of
its previously announced "bought deal" financing. The amended agreement is
with the same syndicate of underwriters to sell, on a "bought deal" basis,

proceeds of approximately C$55 million and 3,850,000 common shares on a
flow-through basis at a price of $2.60 per flow-through common share for gross
proceeds of approximately $10 million. The aggregate proceeds from the bought
deal financing remains approximately C$65 million. In addition, the
