Western Warrior intersects multiple high-grade gold zones in diamond drilling at the Wampum Prospect



    (TSX Venture: WWR)

    CALGARY, March 25 /CNW/ - Western Warrior Resources Inc. ("Western
Warrior") is pleased to provide an update from its ongoing exploration of the
Wampum Prospect, one of 23 high priority gold occurrences located on its
Pipestone Project. The Wampum Prospect has been the recent focus of
exploration activity by Western Warrior and is located 40 kilometres northeast
of Nestor Falls in northwest Ontario.
    To date, assay results have been received from five drill holes completed
(WL07-01 to WL07-05) on the eastern end of the South Zone of the Wampum
Prospect with high grade gold mineralization intersected in four holes. The
mineralization is associated with a silica-carbonate altered metavolcanic
sequence and open on strike and dip. Results from holes WL07-06 to WL07-10 are
pending. Drilling continues with a total of 18 holes planned at Wampum. The
prospect is part of the extensive Pipestone Project; 100% owned by Western
Warrior.

    
    HIGHLIGHTS

    -   Hole WL07-01 intersected 1.81 g/t Au over 6.10 metres and includes
        9.10 g/t Au over 0.77 metres.

    -   Hole WL07-02 intersected 9.05 g/t Au over 2.81 metres and includes
        19.84 g/t Au over 0.73 metres. This hole also intersected 106.19 g/t
        Au over 0.70 metres in a separate interval.

    -   Hole WL07-05 intersected 3.57 g/t Au over 3.87 metres and includes
        10.88 g/t Au over 0.61 metres.

    -   Re-sampling of historic drill hole WA6 yielded 6.96 g/t Au over
        2.35 metres.

    -   Chip sampling of historic trench TR2 yielded 4.65 g/t Au over
        3.65 metre and includes a narrow sample yielding 51.94 g/t Au over
        4 centimetres.

    -   Grab sample from the historic trench TR12 yielded 77.62 g/t Au.

    -   Channel C6 sampling yielded 10.53 g/t Au over 3.30 metres.
    

    Complete results are provided in the attached tables with uncut assays
only reported. Drilled intersections are provided as down hole widths. True
widths have not been determined at the time of the release.
    "These are very encouraging results and a great beginning for Western
Warrior's exploration drilling program at the Wampum Prospect. Our team is
looking forward to a successful 2008 exploration program. Wampum is our
current focus but our 2008 exploration program is planned to expand into our
greater Pipestone property holdings. Drilling is ongoing and additional
results from the Wampum drilling are pending," commented Allen Raoul,
Exploration Manager of Western Warrior.
    In preparation for this drill program, Western Warrior has re-sampled
historic drill holes and trenches and completed channel sampling and detailed
mapping at Wampum. Assays from Falconbridge (1986) drill holes yielded Au
mineralization up to 6.96 g/t Au over 2.3 metres. Grab samples from historic
trenches yielded up to 10.67 g/t Au in the Middle Zone, and 77.62 g/t Au in
the North Zone. Continuous sampling from historic trenches in the South Zone
yielded up to 4.65 g/t Au over 3.65 metres. Channel sampling of the South Zone
yielded up to 10.53 g/t Au over 3.30 metres. The mineralization is interpreted
to occur in a +300 metre wide alteration area encompassing the South, Middle
and North Zones and is open along strike. A project location map, Wampum
Prospect map, and detailed Wampum South Zone map are attached (Please see URLs

    Western Warrior's Pipestone Project is located in the Kenora Mining
District and is centered approximately 80 kilometres southeast of Kenora,
Ontario and 20 kilometres east of Nestor Falls. The Nuinsco Resources Cameron
Lake deposit is located immediately adjacent to the northern boundary of the
project area and the Rainy River Resources Zone 17 deposit is located west of
the southwestern corner of the property. The Wampum Project is located at the
site of the old Wampum Lake Mine and is one of over 23 strongly mineralized
areas of the Pipestone Project held 100% by Western Warrior.
    Drill core is logged and mineralized intervals are split on site at
Nestor Falls Ontario, with split samples being shipped to Accurassay
Laboratories in Thunder Bay for sample preparation and analysis. Gold is
analyzed utilizing the Fire Assay method with an AA finish on a 30g sample.
The exploration program is carried out under the direction of Allen Raoul,
Exploration Manager for Western Warrior. The information in this release was
prepared under the direction of Paul Nagerl, P. Geo., President and Chief
Executive Officer of Western Warrior, a qualified person as defined by
National Instrument 43-101.
    Drill hole results and composites provided as uncut assays over drilled
down hole widths. True widths have not been determined at the time of the
release.
