Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. - Exploration results demonstrate excellent depth potential at Kiena Mine



    VAL-D'OR, QC, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - Drilling targeting the depth extensions of
the S-50 Zone and the Shawkey 22 Zone is returning encouraging results at the
Kiena Mine.
    Results are complete from drill hole U-4317, the first of three deep
holes being drilled from the 910 metre level of the Kiena Mine. These holes
are being drilled to test the S-50 Zone to a depth of approximately 1.3
kilometres, 200 metres below any previous drill intersections. U-4317 returned
3.92gAu/tonne over a core length of 13.0 metres. This intersection has an
estimated true width of 6.6 metres and is located approximately 100 metres
southeast of and 100 metres below the nearest drill hole. These results show
that the zone has good potential at depth. The S-50 Zone provided
approximately 98% of the 1.56 million ounces of gold produced at the Kiena
mine until 2002.

    Please refer to Wesdome's press release from October 15, 2007: "Kiena
Cranks Up Exploration Effort"
(http://www.wesdome.com/documents/WGM_2007_10_15.pdf) for a detailed plan and
section view of the drilling on the S50 zone.
    Partial results are in for the first two holes being drilled to test the
Shawkey 22 Zone at a depth of approximately 330 metres. Hole 141-146 returned
3.04gAu/tonne over a core length of 1.0 metre and hole 141-147 returned
18.06gAu/tonne (8.04gAu/tonne when cut to 34.28gAu/tonne) over a core length
of 7.0 metres. This information will assist the planning of a bulk sampling
program to test the continuity and grade of the 22 Zone. The 330 level access
drift is currently 130 metres from the 22 Zone and is expected to arrive near
year end. The company interprets this zone to be an array of flat ladder veins
hosted by a vertically dipping feldspar porphyry sill and its immediate
country rocks. Previous drilling has traced the structure at shallow depth
over a strike length of 700 metres.

    It is encouraging to see a persistent and well altered and mineralized
system carrying visible gold at Shawkey. Wesdome will be displaying core
samples from these drill holes at the Quebec Exploration conference held in
Quebec City from November 27-29, 2007.
