     All dollar amounts are in US millions (unaudited)
     -  First gold pour for 2008 production of 1,000 ounces
     -  January sales and production ahead of budget
     -  Exploration drilling expected to begin by end January
     TORONTO, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - Western Goldfields Inc. (TSX:WGI, AMEX:WGW)
today announced that it has completed the first gold pour of 1,000 ounces for 
2008 production at its Mesquite Mine in California. Gold sales for the month
of January are expected to be approximately 2,700 ounces, exceeding the
January budget by more than 30%.
     "Placement of ore on the leach pad is ahead of schedule and gold recovery
is as predicted which will enable the Mesquite Mine to achieve the production
targets announced in December 2007," reported Mr. Raymond Threlkeld, President
and Chief Executive Officer. "As we add more ore to the leach pad, production
levels will increase, and we expect to produce approximately 155,000-165,000
ounces of gold in 2008."
     "The announcement of the first gold pour at Mesquite is the final
milestone in the transformation of Western Goldfields from a developer to a
producer," said Mr. Randall Oliphant, Chairman. "Now that we have achieved
production at Mesquite - three months ahead of the Feasibility Study schedule
and on budget - we are now focused on growth strategies to enhance shareholder
     Capital spending through year-end 2007 on the expansion project was
$98.4�million, and the remainder of the $109.2 million development capital
will be spent in the first quarter of 2008 when the remainder of the leach
pad, processing facility and truck shop are completed. Western Goldfields had
cash on hand of approximately $51 million, including $7.5 million in
restricted cash, at the end of 2007. To date, the Company has drawn down $77
million of the $87 million credit facility available for the Mesquite
expansion. "Western Goldfields has sufficient cash on hand and projected cash
flow to meet all its requirements for 2008, along with cash to be utilized for
strategic purposes," added Mr. Oliphant.
     Exploration drilling of the Brownie Hill deposit is scheduled to begin in
the last week of January. During 2008, approximately $1.0 million will be
spent on additional definition and exploratory drilling. The drilling will be
focused on the follow up of mineralization found outside the current reserve
area at Brownie Hill, where approximately 200,000 ounces of gold were added
into reserves in 2007.
     The technical data contained in this news release has been prepared under
the supervision of Wes Hanson, P. Geo., Vice-President of Mine Development,
Western Goldfields, and the Qualified Person under NI 43-101 for the project.
