Windarra (TSX VENTURE:WRA) Appoints Consultant for Africa

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2010) - Windarra Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WRA) today announces that it has retained the services of Mr. David Warner as a consultant responsible for introducing the company to mining exploration opportunities on the African continent. Mr. Warner is an international consultant and businessman with a proven track record and over 30 years experience in Africa.

Mr. John Pallot, President and CEO of Windarra, states, "Mr. Warner has an extensive knowledge and network throughout Africa, providing the advice and guidance necessary for us to become established in this fast developing market." Mr. Warner is pleased to be joining the company and states, "There is little doubt of the mineral wealth lying untapped in Africa and this is one of the reasons China is making such inroads into mineral exploration in Africa. Windarra is able to offer its Canadian expertise and great opportunities exist for smaller exploration companies, able to provide the innovation and flexibility demanded by many African states."
