This interim Resource update (effective date July 15<sup>th</sup> 2011) is the culmination of work completed since Woulfe took charge of the project. It represents the end of the first stage of a programme to refine and understand the Resource. Woulfe gained access underground and started a comprehensive underground drilling campaign, supplemented with additional surface holes. The Interim Resource update is based on this drilling campaign and the modern surface drilling campaign completed by Woulfe's predecessor at the project.
From study of historical data the mineralisation is now better understood and also now better realised in the model. The new model can be considered a much closer representation of the geology as understood in the mine than the scoping study model. Part of the Resource presented here lies within a known higher grade section of the old mine. Average grades in this zone are approximately 0.6% WO<sub>3</sub>.
Further details of the resource estimate may be found in the report lodged on SEDAR.
Woulfe will continue to drill and explore within the Upper Section of the old mine. Definition and refinement of the Sangdong mineralisation models will continue as more underground drilling is completed. This data will increase the sample density increasing the area meeting the criteria for the 'Indicated' category. Modelling of historical mining depletion will also continue to better represent the deposit.
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 are 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 Mineral Resources 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.
Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
