Fred Stanford, President and CEO of Torex stated, “I can confirm we have been in close discussions with the Economy Ministry of Mexico, who are spearheading efforts to ensure a timely and authoritative response to the temporary suspension of drilling activities at our Morelos Gold Project announced in our press release dated March 24, 2011. We are truly appreciative of the concern, interest and timely response shown by Minister Ferrari and his office as well as other Federal, State and Municipal officials.”

“Action is underway and we are confident that Federal and State authorities will help facilitate the appropriate safeguards and security measures to allow us to recommence our exploration programs as soon as possible. We believe that this, along with new Company security measures, will result in a security presence that will provide long term stability for the Morelos Gold Project”, he added “We could not have asked for better cooperation from government officials and plans are being developed for a timely return to the site.”
