Wawa, Ontario - November 5, 2009 - Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. ("Wesdome") is pleased to announce a drilling program will soon commence on the Pukaskwa property located 15 kilometres west of the Eagle River Mill [Figures 1,2].  Wesdome has an option to earn a 60% interest in the Pukaskwa property from Windarra Minerals Ltd. ("Windarra") by incurring mineral exploration expenditures of $3.0 million prior to June 30, 2014.


The program scope involves 3,000 metres of drilling in about 25 drill holes.  Drilling will focus on the Middle Finger Lake zone (MFLZ) and provide preliminary drill testing of the Bonanza zone.  Drilling should be completed prior to Christmas [Figures 3,4].


The purpose of the drilling is to establish the size potential and continuity of the MFLZ and provide initial drill testing of the Bonanza zone.


Highlights of limited previous shallow drilling on the MFLZ include the following intersections.  Complete results, surface plans and drill sections are documented in a Press Release dated October 26, 2007 and available at www.windarra.com.


Middle Finger Lake Zone Highlights

?                        4.16 gAu/tonne over 6.55 metres

inc. 8.78 gAu/tonne over 2.80 metres,


?                        3.41 gAu/tonne over 9.04 metres

inc. 9.37 gAu/tonne over 3.24 metres,


?                        1.07 gAu/tonne over 20.50 metres

inc. 4.48 gAu/tonne over 2.70 metres,


?                        3.14 gAu/tonne over 13.15 metres

inc. 7.25 gAu/tonne over 3.90 metres, and


?                        1.49 gAu/tonne over 16.10 metres

inc. 7.40 gAu/tonne over 2.96 metres


The MFLZ mineralization is cored by quartz-tourmaline flooding with a broad semi-massive to disseminated sulphide halo composed of arsenopyrite, pyrrhotite, pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and galena.  It is shallowly-dipping and hosted by metasedimentary rocks of the Mishibishu greenstone belt.  Its broad widths, extensive, correlated induced polarization response and soil geochemical signature suggest to Wesdome this may be a very large mineralized system.  The MFLZ was discovered by trenching soil geochemistry anomalies in an overburden, covered area in 2006.


The Bonanza zone was also discovered by trenching soil geochemistry anomalies in 2006.  It is located about 500 metres southwest of the MFLZ.  It is a narrow, sugary, quartz vein containing abundant visible gold.  It can be traced for 30 metres along strike before disappearing under overburden.  It is up to 1 foot wide on surface and has returned very high grades in channel sampling (see Press Release dated July 25, 2006 and available at www.windarra.com).  It has never been drilled and Wesdome is hopeful it may widen at depth as was the case with the No. 2 zone at its nearby Eagle River mine.


This Press Release was prepared by George Mannard, PGeo. and Vice President, Exploration, Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. and "Qualified Person" as per NI43-101.  Field work is supervised by Daniel Lapointe, PGeo., Exploration Geologist and "Qualified Person" as per NI43-101.
