“The Company is continuing its positive operational trend” stated Arturo Bonillas, President of Timmins Gold. “The San Francisco Mine is now operating at designed capacity, with crusher throughput improving, ore stockpiling declining and the processed grade approaching reserve grade as per our mine plan. We continue to look for ways to decrease costs and increase production. The exploration drill program on our high potential regional targets has commenced and we expect to provide initial drill results over the next few weeks. ”
