[Seoul, Korea& VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA=Whowired] May 2, 2012 -- Woulfe Mining Corp. ("Woulfe" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOF)(OTCQX:WFEMF)(FRANKFURT:OZ4) is pleased to update shareholders regarding developments within Korea that impact its 100% owned Sangdong Project.
As an extension of its agreements signed with Woulfe Mining on February 29, 2012, IMC, a Warren Buffett company, entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with municipal governments in charge. The MOU executed on Wednesday 25rd April among the representative of IMC, the Governor of Gangwon Province and the Mayor of Yeongwol County stipulates "close cooperation between IMC and relevant government authorities for the successful development of the Sangdong Minie project (the "Project")".
According to the MOU, IMC will invest CAD70 million to acquire 25% stake of Sangdong Mine and to build an APT plant.
Gangwon Province and Yeongwol County stated in the MOU that "In order for earlier recognition of IMC's investment effect, government authorities will fully support the Project in the areas of permits, designation of Foreign Direct Investment Zone, building of roads and other infrastructure as well as tax exemption and will continue to attract corporations related to the Project.
Comment from Brian Wesson, CEO of Woulfe:
"This MOU between IMC and the relevant government authorities is of significant importance to us. It was following the Definitive Feasibility Study released by Tetra Tech Company a few days ago in which the NPV of Sangdong Mine for the first 11.5 years was assessed to be $400.5 million or 46% IRR. In addition to the IMC's investment, undivided support from relevant governments will assure the successful completion of the Sangdong Project and will help us achieve the targeted production of tungsten concentrate and APTs in mid-2013."
On Behalf of the Board of Directors, Woulfe Mining Corp.
