Woulfe Mining reports drill results for the Sangdong drilling program

Vancouver, BC, Canada - February 17th 2012 - Woulfe Mining Corp. ("Woulfe" or the "Company") (TSX-V: WOF, OTCQX: WFEMF, Frankfurt: OZ4) is pleased to announce assay results for three batches of samples associated with the drilling program at Sangdong. The results for the drilling completed during 2011 will be used in the calculation of the Feasibility Study resource estimate. Drilling from underground locations is continuing at Sangdong.

This batch of assay results comprises 17 holes, of which eight were drilled from Taebaek Level mostly to test the Main Zone, and nine were drilled from Sangdong Level mostly to test the Footwall Zones. Three of the holes encountered poor ground conditions and were abandoned prior to hitting the target.

Overall nine Footwall and six Main Zone intersections were recorded. Significant Main Zone intersections include 3.9 metres true width at 1.04% WO3 (WSDD0047) and 5.3 metres true width at 0.49% WO3 (WSDD0080). Significant Footwall Zone intersections include 11.9 metres true width at 0.44% WO3 (WSDD0069) and 4.6 metres true width at 0.98% WO3 (WSDD0071).

The significant 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 is targeting the unmined mineralisation in the upper section of the mine above the old No. 2 Level for mine planning and feasibility reserve estimation purposes. This represents approximately one quarter of the dip length of known mineralisation from the old mine. The resource for this section of the mine was recently re-estimated (see Company release dated 24th January 2012), resulting in an Indicated Resource of 16.4 million tonnes at 0.45% WO3, 0.04% MoS2 and an Inferred Resource of 19.4 million tonnes at 0.44% WO3, 0.05% MoS2 at a cut-off of 0.2% WO3. This compares with the Scoping Study Inferred Resource of 103.6 million tonnes at 0.35% WO3, 0.04% MoS2 at a cut-off of 0.1% WO3 for the entire mine.

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, a Tetra Tech company, 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 and Mineral Resources for the Sangdong deposit.
