CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwire – Nov. 24, 2010) –


West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. (“West High Yield” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:WHY) announces that it has completed the drilling and testing of 15 NQ drill holes totaling 1,698 metres (5,570 feet) in its 2010 gold drilling program on the Company’s Midnight Crown granted claim on the western outskirts of Rossland, British Columbia. The Company previously reported the assay results for 13 holes (MN10-1 through 13) with two previous press releases (August 12, 2010 and September 29, 2010) and now reports the results of the last two holes (MN10-14 and MN10-15), which are summarized in the table below.

Shown In the gold intersection table below, Hole MN10-14 resulted in a gold intersection of appreciable gold values (3.76 grams/tonne Au) over a true width of 1.8 metres near the surface. Hole MN10-15 was not successful in recovering the core from 8.6 m to 10.4 metres in drill depth due to encountering an old tunnel. The southern margin and northeast part of the Midnight gold resource estimation remains to be further tested. For the readers’ reference, this press release is accompanied by a map of the 2010 Diamond Drilling Plan on the Midnight property.
