Woulfe Mining Secures Permits to Develop Production Adit at Sangdong

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 2, 2011) - Woulfe Mining Corp. ("Woulfe" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOF)(OTCQX:WFEMF) is pleased to announce that permitting of the production adit for its Sangdong tungsten/molybdenum mine in South Korea has been approved. Approval was granted by the Ministry of Knowledge & Economy on July 21st 2011 (Approval No. 11-0721-1). A land lease contract with Yeongwol County for the adit area was secured on July 14th 2011.

The portal (entrance) and production adit will be located within a short haulage distance of less than 100 metres from the designed crusher site, and will access the mineralisation almost immediately inside the decline. The 6 by 6 metre adit will facilitate the use of modern bulk mining equipment and will provide access to all three zones (Main, Hangingwall and Footwall) within the initial mining block in the upper 25% of the ore body mostly above the valley floor. Wardrop, a Tetra Tech company, recently released an interim resource for this area, comprising 5,968,000 tonnes at 0.42% WO3 ("Indicated Resource") and 18,572,000 tonnes at 0.45% WO3 ("Inferred Resource"). At proposed mining rates this area has the potential to provide 20 years of mining before having to move below level 2 into the deeper mine and dewater.

Development will commence as soon as the final design portal (entrance) is completed.

Brian Wesson CEO/President of Woulfe added, "The government authorities are working with Woulfe to move the project forward and the permitting is a significant step towards production in 2012. The development will also provide access to mine bulk samples for metallurgical pilot plant testwork to optimize recovery and production of Ammonia Paratungstate ("APT")."

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's for 40 years) a property that we believe has substantial value for our shareholders. The outcome of the scoping study in March 2010 determined that the project NPV was US$467 million at a commodity price of $25,000 per tonne Ammonium Paratungstate (APT). Today, the APT price is over US$45,000 per tonne. Woulfe has accelerated the project due to the robust project and market. The company's target is to move to production at the end of 2012. In the last 18 months the company has focused on building the Sangdong tungsten mine team and reopening 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 producing 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.
