CALGARY, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - Whitemud Resources Inc. ("Whitemud" or the "Company") (WMK - TSXV) is pleased to announce that it has granted, effective September 22, 2009, an aggregate of 400,000 stock options under its stock option plan to its outside directors at an exercise price of $0.93 per share. The stock options granted are subject to applicable regulatory requirements or approvals. The issuance of 300,000 of these options to Barry Lester reflects his previously announced appointment as Chairman of the Board of Directors and his role in providing Whitemud with assistance in introducing metakaolin and its associated performance benefits to improve the quality of concrete to engineering, architectural and construction companies that design and construct major buildings and infrastructure projects in Canada and the United States. Mr. Lester has a distinguished engineering career and was awarded the Canadian Engineering Leadership award by the Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary in 2007.

Whitemud is committed to becoming the leading manufacturer and supplier of metakaolin for the North American construction cement and concrete and oilfield cement industries. The Company was founded in 2002, inspired by the discovery of a unique manufacturing process that would allow for the economic use of metakaolin as an additive to concrete. Whitemud has secured leases for one of the largest deposits of kaolin in North America near Wood Mountain in southern Saskatchewan, 165 kilometres southwest of Regina, and 40 kilometres north of the US border.

These securities have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of that Act. This news release does not constitute an offer for sale of these securities in the United States.
