Woulfe Mining Corp. Update on Sangdong Tungsten Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2012) - Woulfe Mining Corp. ("Woulfe" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOF)(OTCQX:WFEMF)(FRANKFURT:OZ4) is pleased to provide an update regarding the feasibility study, and the project manager at the 100% owned Sangdong Tungsten Molybdenum Project.

Brian Wesson CEO and President of Woulfe Mining commented, "We have advanced the project significantly in the last two years and delaying the feasibility study was a hard decision as we understand how important it is to the market. It was appropriate to change the test work to China as it is strongly believed that higher recoveries and simpler flow sheet can be achieved against the historical process that produced APT (Tungsten) for 40 years from Sangdong. The appointment of Hanmi Global is a big step as it brings strong Korean project management still and knowhow to the project to complement our international design team."


Woulfe stated last year that the feasibility for Sangdong will be completed by year end and released early in the first quarter. Unfortunately the drilling ran a month late and the updated indicated and inferred resources for above level 2 was released in mid-January. The main delay in the feasibility has been metallurgical test work that was moved from Canada as laboratories were busy and do not have the technology developed in China as the world's largest producer of tungsten for the last 20 years. Korea Tungsten achieved a recovery of above 70% for the 40 years of operation and given the modern technologies available Woulfe believes that the Chinese test work has the potential for higher recoveries in Flotation.

The test results are expected at the end of February and the completion of feasibility at the end of March 2012. The delay was to get the optimum flow sheet for the flotation plant design. The company has bulk samples in China and Australia for a bulk test once the flow sheet has been finalised in the feasibility study. The delay in feasibility is not expected to adversely impact on the construction schedule.

Appointment of Project Manager

Woulfe is pleased to announce the engagement of Hanmi Global Co., Ltd, formerly known as HanmiParsons Co., Ltd. ("Hanmi") as the project manager for the Sangdong Tungstun and Molybdenum Mine. Established in 1996, Hanmi was the first Korean construction and project management company in Korea and has become a prominent global project management firm, currently engaged in 120 projects in 40 countries amounting to over US$3 billion. The engagement of experienced construction management company will allow Woulfe to accelerate the tendering and appointment of contractors and will contribute to building the mine and processing plants on a cost competitive and time efficient manner. Two of senior officers of Hanmi were already dispatched to and started working at the mine site as of February 7, 2012.
