Western Pacific Expands Southern Soil Anomaly

Vancouver, British Columbia, February 7, 2012 � Western Pacific Resources Corp. (WRP � TSXV) is pleased to report the results of a soil geochemistry program completed in December 2011 at its Mineral Gulch project in southern Idaho.  A total of 1,300 samples were collected on a 50 meter by 50 meter grid in the previously unsampled area south and west of the C&D pit (see map posted on company website):

Anomalous gold-in-soil results were encountered over an area covering 600 meters by 200 meters, containing gold values from 100 ppb to 601 ppb Au and the anomaly remains open to the north and northwest towards the C&D pit. This area has never been drilled or previously sampled.

�These results confirm the upside potential of the Mineral Gulch project.  The latest soil program has given us a large soil target to drill within the northeast trending structural zone which includes the C&D pit, Tallman pit, Hazel Pine area and the previously defined soil anomalies northeast of the Hazel Pine area.  Based on this success, we�re planning to sample additional soil grids during this year�s field season�, says Curt Everson , Exploration Manager.

Western Pacific owns 100% of the Mineral Gulch property, located in Cassia County, Idaho, near the Utah border.  The project encompasses the historic Black Pine Mining District and surrounding exploration ground, which was the site of small scale gold and base metal mining beginning in 1915.  Noranda Inc. explored the property between 1984 and 1990, and then entered into a joint venture with Pegasus Mining in 1990.  The joint venture produced 520,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 1.0 g/t, from several small open pits, between 1992 and 1998.  Recent work by Western Pacific suggests excellent potential for the discovery of additional mineralization on this historic property.
