West High Yield Announces Positive 2011 Drill Results


December 5, 2011

CALGARY, ALBERTA. December 5, 2011. West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. ("West High Yield" or the “Company") announces that it has completed the drilling and testing of 26 NQ drill holes, aggregating 4,000 metres and conducted 2,087 assays of the drill cores in its 2011 resource definition drill program on its Record Ridge Magnesium Property, located near Rossland, British Columbia.  The Company previously reported the results of its 2007 and 2008 Record Ridge drill program consisting of 51 NQ diamond drill holes aggregating 6,340 metres with 3,874 assays and the early results for 17 drill holes on its 2011 program.  Based on all drill core results achieved to date, the Company is now proceeding with a NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) Report in respect of the Company's Record Ridge Magnesium Project.  The PEA is being prepared by SRK Consulting Engineers of Denver, Colorado and the Company anticipates that the (PEA) will be completed in early 2012. Upon completion of the PEA and provided that the Company continues to see a continuation of the positive results in its drilling, testing and metallurgical programs, the Company plans to proceed with Pre-feasibility and Feasibility Studies on its Record Ridge Magnesium Project.

The Company’s two previous reports presented the results of 17 holes (RRS 11-1 through RRS 11-17) from its 2011 drill program.  The Company has now received the assay results of the last nine (9) drill holes.  All drill holes intersected broad zones of magnesium bearing ultramafic rock.  RRS 11-19 intersected several zones of magnesium bearing ultramafic rocks mixed with intervened sub-volcanic and intrusive dykes, followed by a 53.4 metre thick, broad zone carrying 24.5% Magnesium.  The other six (6) holes all intersected broad zones of significant magnesium bearing ultramafic rock (serpentinite). Of noteworthy interest are holes RRS 11-20, RRS 11-23 and RRS 11-25, all of which yielded 152.4 metres of 23.0% to 24.0% magnesium from the surface.  The Company is very encouraged by the results to date.  The newly received assay results are set out in detail in the table below and the map attached to this news release identifies the location of the drill holes from the programs from 2007, 2008 and the recently completed 2011 program.

The Company also advises that it has applied for the recovery of up to $650,000 pursuant to the BC Mining Tax Credit Program and anticipates receiving the first tranche of $500,000 in the early part of 2012.  In North America, Magnesium sells for $2.20 U.S. per pound.
