Woulfe Mining Clarifies and Restates Certain Disclosure

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/18/13 -- Woulfe Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:WOF)(OTCQX:WFEMF)(FRANKFURT:OZ4) ("Woulfe" or the "Company") -

Woulfe Mining Corp. reports that as a result of a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC), it is issuing the following news release to clarify, retract, restate and update certain of its previously issued investor relations presentations, reports and disclosures on its website www.woulfemining.com.

The Company's website, including a corporate presentation, a fact sheet and investor's guide (the "Materials"), contained the following information, none of which invalidates any portion of, or requires any amendment in relation to, the Company's feasibility study on the Sangdong property as published June 6, 2012:


--  The Company's website and November 2012 Investor Guide (the "Guide")
    disclosed 2010 mineral resource estimates, completed as part of a
    scoping study (the "2010 Scoping Study"). The 2010 Scoping Study and
    mineral resource estimates have been superseded by a feasibility study
    on the Sangdong property having an effective date of June 6, 2012 and
    entitled "Sangdong Project Feasibility Study" (the "Feasibility Study").
    The Feasibility Study was authored by TetraTech WEI Inc. and is
    available on the Company's SEDAR profile. It reports a Probable Reserve
    of 13.3 Mt @ 0.425% WO3 with a cut-off grade of 0.24% WO3. The
    Feasibility Study did not contain a complete mineral resource update,
    but converted a prior reported Indicated Resource of 16.4 Mt.@ 0.45% WO3
    with a cut-off of 0.15% WO3 to the Probable Reserve reported above. The
    prior resource estimates on the Sangdong property, including the
    Indicated Resource referenced above, had an effective date of January
    24, 2012 and were included in a report entitled "Sangdong Project
    Resource Estimate" authored by Wardrop, TetraTech WEI Inc (the "2012
    Resource Report"). The 2012 Resource Report is available on the
    Company's SEDAR profile. The mineral resource estimates contained in the
    2012 Resource Report are stated in the table below, noting that the
    Feasibility Study has converted the Indicated Resource to a Probable
    Reserve. It should be noted that the 2012 Resource Report states that
    the 2010 mineral resource estimates were made on a very different basis
    to the current (2012) estimates. The 2010 resource estimates largely
    relied on holes drilled underground by Korea Tungsten Mining Corporation
    and on a coarse geological interpretation of the mineralized zones.
    Because of doubts attaching to the location and sample quality control
    of these underground holes, and the limited geological understanding at
    the time, the 2010 mineral resources were classified in the Inferred
    category. The 2012 resource estimates rely entirely on modern drilling
    programmes with associated sample quality control. The modern data,
    however, covers only approximately the upper quarter of the known dip-
    length of the mineralized zones. For this reason, comparisons between
    the 2012 and 2010 mineral resource estimates should be treated with
    caution.

    WO3 = Tungsten trioxide, MoS2 - Molybdenum Disulphide, MTU - metric

    (ii) Indicated Resources was converted to a Probable Reserve in the
         Feasibility Study.

    The resource is split into two sections by elevation, representing the
    down dip potential of the deposit below current waterline.

    The only current mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates that
    have been approved by or on behalf of the Company in relation to the
    Sangdong property are as stated above in the 2012 Resource Report and
    the Feasibility Study.

--  The website and Materials contained aggregated resource numbers which
    added Inferred Resources to other categories of resources in respect of
    the Sangdong property, or which used a category of mineral resources,
    specifically "mineable resource", not permitted by NI 43-101 in respect
    of the Muguk property. 

--  The website and Materials discloses the results of economic analyses
    from the Company's feasibility study which may be misleading and/or
    unbalanced as the website and Material only reference pre-tax results
    without disclosing the comparative post-tax results. Investors are
    strongly encouraged to review the Feasibility Study in full. 

--  The Guide contained a reference to historical, non-43-101 compliant,
    resource estimates for the Sangdong Moly Stockwork. A non-NI 43-101
    compliant historical resource estimate for molybdenum at the Sangdong
    property was reported by Korea Engineering Co. Ltd. in 2001 and a memo
    of Paul Matthews and Heywood Bates in 2008. A Qualified Person has not
    completed sufficient work in order to classify historical resource
    estimates for molybdenum on the Sangdong property as current mineral
    resources and the Company is not treating these historical estimates as
    prepared by Korea Engineering Co. Ltd. or Paul Matthews and Heywood
    Bates or otherwise as current mineral resources but as historical
    estimates. They are for informational purposes only and should not be
    relied upon. 

--  The website and Materials incorrectly references a 0.20% cut-off in
    relation to the 2012 resource estimates, where a 0.15% cut-off was used,
    as outlined above. 

--  The website and Materials failed to properly identify, and disclose the
    relationship to the Company, of the Qualified Person who approved,
    prepared or supervised the preparation of the technical information
    within. The Company has added this disclosure to its website and the
    Materials. 

The Company retracts all non-compliant disclosures as referenced above and has amended the website and Materials to remove such disclosures, including the Guide which will be updated at a later date. The Company plans to complete a more comprehensive re-launch of the Company's website in the future.

In those instances where the Company has retracted, revised, clarified or updated previous disclosure, the Company advises readers not to rely on such statements as they may continue to be found in the public domain.

Patrick Roger Stephenson, P.Geo., of AMC Mining Consultants (Canada) Ltd., an independent consultant to the Company, is the Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 who has approved the technical content of this news release.
