Wellpoint sustains growth rate in mining sector

    CALGARY, April 9 /CNW/ - WellPoint Systems Inc. ("WellPoint" or the
"Company") (TSX-V:WPS) is pleased to announce that in the first quarter of
their fiscal year, the Company added two more mining companies to its rapidly
growing roster of mining clientele. Both Adanac Molybdenum Corporation (Adanac
Moly) and Global Gold Corporation (Global Gold) have selected WellPoint's
Dynamics AX-based mining solution to be the foundation of their back office
    Following last month's announcement of the addition of iSoft Technologies
and its related asset management application suite, WellPoint has experienced
a significant increase in inquiries with regard to its offerings within the
mining sector. Considering the fact that WellPoint has already been adding
companies to its customer list on a monthly basis for the past two years, the
potential for exponential growth in 2007 seems very likely.
    "We are quickly discovering that the global mining community is a very
tight-knit industry sector", says Tom Mawhinney, President of WellPoint
Systems. "Companies like Adanac and Global Gold are looking at the success
their peers are experiencing with the implementation of WellPoint's solution
and are simply looking to us to replicate this success within their
environments. We are looking forward to rewarding them for their confidence in
our ability to do exactly that."
