BECKLEY, WV--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Approximately 4,466 acres in the New River Gorge area in West Virginia's Fayette, Raleigh and Greenbrier counties will sell at auction Saturday, Nov. 14, with Woltz & Associates managing the sale. The sale includes land with more than 10 million board feet of hardwood sawtimber, as well as tracts bordering the New River Gorge National River park.

"These tracts are excellent for hunting white tail deer, black bear and wild turkey, making them suitable for both recreation and investment, as well as future development," said Jim Woltz, president of Woltz & Associates. Tracts range from approximately 20 acres to 797 acres.

The property to be sold includes:

    Thurmond. Most of the seven tracts adjoin the New River Gorge National
    River park.  Tracts range from approximately 26 to 397 acres.

--  Two additional tracts -- of approximately 797 acres and 472 acres --
    in Greenbrier County totaling approximately 1,269 acres.  A stream runs
    through the property, which is expected to draw interest for its hunting
    potential as well as future timber revenue.
