Woulfe Mining Reports Final Drill Results for Phase 1 Feasibility Drilling Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2011) - Woulfe Mining Corp. ("Woulfe" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOF)(OTCQX:WFEMF) is pleased to announce assay results for batches six and seven of samples associated with the now completed phase 1 drilling program at Sangdong. The tungsten-molybdenum mineralisation at Sangdong is hosted within three parallel, shallow-dipping skarn zones (Main, Hangingwall and Footwall) with a lateral extent of up to 1,200 metres along strike and 1,500 metres down dip.

Highlights of the results include 17.3 metres (true width) of 0.87% WO3 in the Hangingwall Zone, 8.0 metres (true width) of 0.99% WO3 in the Main Zone and 8.2 metres (true width) of 0.68% WO3 in the Footwall Zone.

The recent drilling results are summarised as below:

Significant drill intercepts, defined as any mineralisation of 1 metre lengths or longer, are presented in the tables above. A cut-off of 0.15% WO3 was used for the intersection calculations.

The drilling program targeted the unmined mineralisation in the upper section of the mine above the current water level for mine planning and feasibility reserve estimation purposes. The 2010 March Wardrop Engineering Scoping Study produced an Inferred Resource of 103.6 million tonnes at 0.35% WO3, 0.04% MoS2 at a cut-off of 0.1% WO3. This resource estimate modelled the group of Footwall mineralised zones as a combined unit and the Hangingwall Zone as another unit. Any remaining mineralisation from the Main Zone was not included. The intersection summaries shown above may also group mineralised zones within the overall Footwall zone.

Batches six and seven of assay results comprised seven holes, of which five were surface holes, four of which were drilled to define the western margin of the deposit. The fifth surface hole (SD 92) located in the central portion of the deposit to define the Hangingwall Zone intersected 17.3 metres true width at 0.87% WO3. Other significant intersections include 8.0 metres true width at 0.99% WO3 (SD 97) in the Main Zone, 8.2 metres true width at 0.68% WO3 (SD 95) and 15.6 metres true width at 0.36% WO3 (WSDD0027) in the Footwall Zone, and 12.0 metres true width at 0.56% WO3 (SD 97) in the Hangingwall Zone.

The samples are prepared on-site in Korea to appropriate industry standards and sent to SGS Perth, Australia for analysis. Samples are analysed by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP) and for ore-grade quantities of specific elements by aqua regia or 4-acid digestion followed by ICP analysis. Molybdenum is analysed by X-ray fluorescence. The QA/QC protocol comprises insertion of one standard, one blank (crushed glass) and one pulp duplicate in every batch of 20 samples. No QA/QC results are available as yet.

This news release has been reviewed and approved in the form and context in which it appears by Mr Paul Gribble FIMMM, C.Eng, of Wardrop, who is working with Woulfe on the Sangdong studies.Mr Gribble has appropriate qualifications and sufficient relevant experience to qualify as a Qualified Person for the reporting of exploration results for the Sangdong deposit.

About Woulfe Mining Corp.

Woulfe Mining Corp. is a TSX-V listed company with a diversified portfolio of mining licenses for tungsten, molybdenum, gold, base metals and uranium-vanadium in South Korea.

The company is focused on the development of the Sangdong tungsten mine (one of the World's largest and most renowned tungsten mine for 40 years). This property has substantial value for our shareholders given the outcome of the scoping study in March 2010 that determined that the project NPV was US$467 million at a commodity price of $2500 per tonne Ammonium Paratungstate (APT). Today, the APT price is over US$45,000 per tonne. Given the robust project and market, Woulfe has accelerated the project. An updated resource statement is due at the end of June and detailed design, final construction permitting and feasibility will be complete year end. The company's target is to move to production towards the end of 2012. The current market for tungsten and molybdenum is very strong with Taegutec (a global manufacturer) close on doubling production in Korea of powders and finished tungsten goods. There is also a large shortage in markets especially outside China. It is believed that China is moving from being a major exporter of tungsten to a net importer as tungsten is a high level strategic metal needed for most manufacture and high tech applications in developing technologies.

In the last 18 months the company has focused on building the Sangdong tungsten mine team and opening the mine. The project is well staffed with professionals and is moving forward rapidly. Woulfe Corporate has now turned its focus to the Muguk gold project, historically Korea's largest gold mine. In 1998, Muguk was reported by Korea Resources Corporation (KORES) to contain a combined resource of 1,418,980 tonnes @ 13.5 g/t gold, 72.8 g/t silver (615,956 oz gold and 3,321,599 oz silver). Woulfe cautions that a Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current, that it is not treating the historical estimate as current and that the historical estimate should not be relied upon. A drill campaign is starting drilling the down dip extensions of the Three Brothers Vein in June 2011. Woulfe's other projects will be considered once these two projects are moving to production, in order to unlock value for shareholders and to move the company to a positive cash flow as quickly as possible.
