TORONTO, Ontario, June 21, 2017 - Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Torex”) (TSX:TXG) is pleased to announce that, on schedule, the Sub-Sill Access Ramp has entered into the high grade mineralization at its Sub-Sill underground deposit associated with its El Limon-Guajes Mine in southwest Mexico. The first 260 tonnes of ore from the Sub-Sill were delivered to the processing plant yesterday. A random sample from each truck load of ore from this first ‘round’ into mineralized Sub-Sill skarn, returned an average grade of 98 g/t Au.
Fred Stanford, President & CEO of Torex stated: “Going from discovery to first tonnes processed in less than eight months is a testament to the planning ability and the execution skills of our team. The quality of the asset speaks for itself. Infill and step-out exploration drilling programs for the Sub-Sill are ongoing. A mine plan is expected to be published after the infill drill program is completed, the resource estimate is updated, and a maiden Sub-Sill reserve is determined. This is all scheduled to occur by the end of the year.”
The technical information in this news release was reviewed and approved by Victor A Barua, AUSIMM member and an employee of the Company, who is a “qualified person” under NI 43-101.
Torex is an emerging intermediate gold producer based in Canada, engaged in the exploration, development and operation of its 100% owned Morelos Gold Property, an area of 29,000 hectares in the highly prospective Guerrero Gold Belt located 180 kilometers southwest of Mexico City.
