Wolverine Initiates Trenching at DDD North

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 29, 2011) - WOLVERINE MINERALS CORP. (TSX VENTURE:WLV)(FRANKFURT:4LP) ("Wolverine" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has initiated a trenching program at the newly discovered DDD North Zone in the Dawson Range, Yukon.

The Company followed up on several undocumented historical trenches from prior activities. The zone is poorly exposed near the rounded crest of an easterly trending ridge. It is associated with a feldspar-quartz porphyry dike zone that has been traced over a strike length of approximately 3 km. To date the mineralized zone has been traced for over 745 metres along strike and remains open in both directions. Epithermal style quartz veining, stockwork and breccia are exposed in float, rubble, on surface and in several trenches. A total of 13 reconnaissance samples were taken and values ranged from less than 5 ppb up to 6.29 g/t gold and from less than 0.2 g/t up to 25.7 g/t silver. Samples 1357267 (6.29 g/t Au), 1357277 (0.537 g/t Au), 1357278 (1.13g/t Au) and I357281 (2.78 g/t gold) define an apparent 085 degree or easterly trend. No other samples have been collected between anomaly sites due to lack of exposure.

The Company has expedited a small bulldozer/backhoe to the site and the trenching program is well underway.

Wolverine's disclosure of a technical or scientific nature contained in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Heather Smith, P. Geo. and James M. Dawson, P.Eng., who are qualified persons under the definition of National Instrument 43-101.
