Woulfe Mining Corp. reports strong drilling results at Sangdong.

Vancouver, BC, Canada - April 3rd 2012 - Woulfe Mining Corp. ("Woulfe" or the "Company") (TSX-V: WOF, OTCQX: WFEMF, Frankfurt: OZ4) is pleased to announce the first set of assay results for the current drilling program at Sangdong tungsten/molybdenum project in South Korea. Drilling from underground locations at Sangdong is continuing and the results will be used to progressively update the Resource estimate.

This batch of assay results comprises 16 holes, of which 14 were drilled from Sangdong Level and two were drilled from Level 1. The holes were mostly of 50 metres length targeting the Footwall Zones between Level 1 and Taebaek Level. Two holes tested the Main Zone towards the eastern margin of the deposit.

Significant Footwall Zone intersections include 3.9 metres true width at 0.81% WO3 (WSDD0079) and 7.1 metres true width at 0.54% WO3 (WSDD0046). The only significant Main Zone intersection was 6.9 metres true width at 0.50% WO3 (WSDD0091).

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 current water level for mine planning and feasibility reserve estimation purposes. The resource for this section of the mine was re-estimated following the completion of 90 holes in the current drilling program, 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 0.15% WO3. The resource below the valley floor is 34.519 million tonnes at 0.47% WO3, 0.07% MoS2 cut off 0.15% WO3.

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 Tetra Tech 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 and Mineral Resources for the Sangdong deposit.
