West High Yield Announces Completion of Testing on 2010 Gold Drilling Program and Additional Drilling Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2010) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR TO US PERSONS.

West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. ("West High Yield" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WHY) announces that it has completed the drilling and testing of 15 drill holes totaling 1,698 metres (5,570 feet) in its 2010 gold drilling program on the Company's Midnight Crown granted claim in the western outskirts of Rossland, British Columbia. To the present, the Company has received the analysis for 13 of the 15 holes drilled in the 2010 program. The analysis of the remaining two holes will be received in the next few weeks. The Company previously reported the assay results for 6 holes (MN10-1 through MN10-6) and now reports the results of an additional 7 holes (MN10-7 through MN10-13), which are summarized in the table below.

In the table below, it is noted that two holes (MN10-9 and MN10-13) show no significant gold intersections and in the opinion of management outlines the western margin of the Midnight gold resource play. Hole MN10-10 failed to reach the desired drill depth due to encountering an old tunnel. As demonstrated in the table below, the other four holes demonstrated multiple zones of gold intersections with significant gold values, with hole MN10-11 returning 73.23 g/tonne Au for a true width of 2 metres. Also hole MN10-12 returned three (3) gold intersections including one with 2.4 metres true width and values of 3.11 g/tonne Au. The southern margin of the Midnight gold resource play remains to be further tested. The Company plans to retain SRK Consulting Engineers and Scientists ("SRK") of Denver, Colorado, an independent engineering firm, to undertake an independent NI 43-101 measured mineral resource estimation of the Company's Midnight property. For the readers' reference, this press release is accompanied by a map of the Company's 2010 Diamond Drilling Plan on the Midnight property.
