CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 6, 2017) - West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WHY) ("West High Yield" or the "Company") announces that it is proposing to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to $1,500,000 of units ("Units"). Each Unit shall be issued at a price of $0.30 and shall consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-third of one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder to purchase one additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.45 for a period of one year from the date of issuance of the Warrant. The proposed private placement is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The net proceeds of the private placement will be used for general corporate purposes, environmental study and mine plan development as required by the Environmental Assessment Certification and Mine Permit application processes.

In June 2016, the Company commenced work on the environmental study, stakeholder engagement, and mine plan development on the Company's Record Ridge South Magnesium Property as required by the Environmental Assessment Certification and Mine Permit application processes.
