Woulfe Mining Reports Drill Results for the Sangdong Drilling Program08:30 EDT Tuesday, October 02, 2012VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 2, 2012) -Woulfe Mining Corp. ("Woulfe" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOF)(OTCQX:WFEMF)(FRANKFURT:OZ4) is pleased to announce assay results for samples associated with the drilling program at Sangdong. 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, comprising three holes drilled from Sangdong Level and 13 holes drilled from -1 Level. Most of the -1 Level holes were 20-50 metres in length and targeted the Footwall Zones. The Sangdong Level holes were located towards the western end of the orebody and were 50-80 metres in length. Two of the holes targeted the Hangingwall Zone and two were collared within the Main Zone.

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.On Behalf of the Board of DirectorsWoulfe Mining Corp.Brian Wesson (FAusIMM), President, CEO and DirectorAbout Woulfe Mining Corp.
