Woulfe Mining Provides Update

VANCOUVER, CANADA--(Marketwired - May 17, 2013) - Woulfe Mining Corp. ("Woulfe" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOF)(OTCQX:WFEMF)(FRANKFURT:OZ4) provides the following corporate update.

Following the resignation of the former executive management team (See News Release dated February 27, 2013), the Board and the interim CEO have initiated a comprehensive investigation into the Company and its subsidiaries to ensure business continuity. Following an extensive internal and external assessment of the Company and its subsidiaries, the Board and interim CEO have identified issues relating to liquidity and the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries, including Sangdong Mining Corp., to meet various payables beyond the next few months.

The Board and interim CEO recognize the seriousness of these issues, including the potential ability to advance its key Sangdong Tungsten Project located in South Korea in the manner and timing anticipated in earlier corporate communications.

Currently, the Board and Interim CEO have initiated an internal review to further preserve cash, reduce costs and enhance corporate efficiencies. In addition, the Company continues negotiations with various parties to provide a short-term financing solution to meet its obligations and to provide funds to advance the Company's flagship Sangdong Tungsten Project, although there is no guarantee that such financing may be available. Longer term, the Company, with the considerable assistance of its largest shareholder, Dundee Corporation, continues its ongoing discussions with IMC International Metal Working Companies B.V. in order to reach a successful completion of the strategic transactions announced in February 2012.

The current Board review also investigated, with the assistance of Dundee Corporation, the technical aspects of the Sangdong Tungsten Project and identified considerable additional test work necessary to bring the project to commercial preparedness. This will require additional funding to complete. Meanwhile, a full complement of staff and employees remain on site at the Sangdong Tungsten Project planning further technical work and assessment.
