Timmins Gold Commences Underground Pilot Phase at its San Francisco Mine

The drift is part of a pilot phase designed to test the mining and processing of the underground ore in preparation for full scale underground mining. As originally announced in the Company’s press release of February 12 2015, previous drilling had delineated three mineralized veins near the south wall of the San Francisco pit, which averaged approximately 4 m in width, with grades ranging between 2.5 and 5.0 g/t gold.
