Woulfe Mining Extends IMC Loan

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 15, 2014) - Woulfe Mining Corp. ("Woulfe" or the "Company") (CSE:WOF)(FRANKFURT:OZ4) announces that it has reached an agreement with its strategic partner, International Metal working Companies B.V. ("IMC") to extend the term of the existing CAD$ 10 million loan from December 15, 2014 to September 15, 2015. This extension will allow Woulfe to complete the advanced, amended feasibility study and to complete the ongoing Phase VI drilling program on the wide, high grade, Hangingwall Deposit.

As a reminder of the original terms of the loan, please refer to news releases dated February 28, 2012 and March 4, 2013. The original CAD$5 million loan agreement was executed on February 28, 2012 and amended and restated to a CAD$10 million bridge loan announced on March 4, 2013. Today's amended and restated agreement not only extends the term bridge loan for nine months, but also cancels the minority interest (45%) of Woulfe in the downstream Ammonia Paratungstate ("APT") operation and related capex. The cancellation of the APT commitment decreases Woulfe's overall capex requirements and there was no assurance of a revenue stream to Woulfe as a minority, leveraged participant in the APT operation.

Other conditions of the original and amended and restated (See news releases dated February 28, 2012 and March 4, 2013) agreements remain in place, including, subject to the terms and conditions of the agreements, IMC acquiring a 25% interest in Sangdong Mining Corporation (Woulfe's 100-owned subsidiary) "(Sangdong") for total consideration of CAD$35 million (less current loan balance and related interest) and an offtake agreement related to Sangdong's tungsten concentrate production.
