2010/2011 HIGHLIGHTS




"The Company's first year of commercial production has been a tremendous success. We've seen operational improvements on a quarter over quarter basis, and with nine drill rigs currently on site have embarked on an aggressive exploration program to increase the mine life at San Francisco," stated Mr. Bruce Bragagnolo, CEO of Timmins Gold Corp. "The expansion plan from 12,000 tonnes per day to 18,000 tonnes per day is now complete, with expected benefits of the expansion being realized in the next fiscal quarter. The completion of the expansion will allow the mine to operate at an annual production rate of 100,000 ounces of gold per year. The Company is well positioned to continue realizing current gold prices and record margins, while generating strong operating cash flow on a quarter over quarter basis."
