Timmins Gold Reports Drilling Results from La Chicharra Open Pit

Timmins Gold has reported the results of the drilling program that was completed during June and July in 2011 at the current La Chicharra open pit, which is situated 2 km to the western part of the San Francisco open pit, in Sonora State, Mexico.

La Chicharra open pit

The company received the most important results from the outcrops of the mineral trend of La Chicharra, which is situated 500 m to the southern side of the San Francisco mine and 1,200 m to La Chicharra pit’s southeast direction along what seems to be an analogous mineral structure to the San Francisco deposit.

Timmins started the drilling program at the La Chicharra in June and completed the reverse circulation drilling of 16,204 m at the end of July. So far, the drilling results have demonstrated geological features and identical grades to primary results that were received from the San Francisco open pit during the late 1990's. The drilling results received so far show La Chicharra’s mineralized zone expanding down dip from the present pit to a 200 m depth under the north wall, and 300 m analogous to the historically known gold mineralization. The current drilling program persists to the northwest part of the La Chicharra property with an aim of analyzing the mineralization along the strike.

The company prepared the samples gathered during the drill program and Inspectorate-Vancouver assayed these samples using the gravimetric finish and fire assay.
