CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. ("West High Yield" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WHY) announces that SRK Consulting (U.S.), Inc. of Lakewood, Colorado ("SRK") has completed a Project Review (Gap Analysis) Report for the Company which has been filed on the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com and is also available on the Company's website www.whyresources.com.

SRK Independent Project Review Gap Analysis

On June 4, 2013, the Company released the results of a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") on its 100% owned Record Ridge Project (the "Record Ridge Property"). The Record Ridge Property is an intermediate advanced exploration stage magnesium ("Mg") project located in southern British Columbia, Canada. The PEA was prepared by SRK and was filed on the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com and is also available on the Company's website at www.whyresources.com.

The PEA presumes a conventional open pit mine, a novel hydrometallurgical processing plant, a calcined magnesia intermediate product plant along with a fused magnesia production plant with pre-tax Net Present Value ("NPV") using a 5% discount rate of US$1.339 billion and Internal Rate of Return ("IRR") of 21% and a post-tax NPV of US$830 million using a 5% discount and post-tax IRR of 17% .

As noted, SRK prepared a Project Review Gap Analysis in respect of the Company's Record Ridge Project. SRK reviewed the available documentation and information pertaining to the Record Ridge Project and commented on its sufficiency for use in a Prefeasibility Study ("PFS"). SRK conducted a desktop review of the minimum reporting requirements for a PFS and assessed gaps which should be addressed prior to or over the course of the study. SRK provided the following as a result of this review:


--  A list of those gaps in the Company's currently available data and
    information which should be addressed in a PFS. 
--   General recommendations for how those gaps can be remedied. 
--  A conceptual budget and schedule for completion of a PFS based on
    assumptions that the gaps can be addressed either prior to or as a part
    of the PFS.
