"This is our third consecutive quarter of record gold production," stated Bruce Bragagnolo, CEO of Timmins Gold. "The strong quarter was underpinned by the optimization of the crushing circuits to the rated capacity of 24 ktpd and by improved processes. Crusher throughput has reached expected levels and was up 19% over the same period last year and 8% over last quarter. As per our plans we are reducing the amount of ore being stockpiled."

The Company also announces that its board of directors adopted an Advance Notice Policy effective April 3, 2014, which will be presented to shareholders of the Company for ratification at the Company's 2014 annual general meeting. The purpose of the Advance Notice Policy is to provide shareholders, directors and management with a clear framework for nominating directors. The Advance Notice Policy includes, among other things, a provision that requires advance notice be given to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Act"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the Act. Additionally, the Advance Notice Policy sets a deadline by which shareholders must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual general or special meeting of shareholders, sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice to the Company, and establishes the form in which the shareholder must submit the notice for that notice to be in proper written form. In the case of an annual general meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be given not less than 30 days and not more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual general meeting. However, in the event that the annual general meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the meeting was made, notice must be given not later than the close of business on the tenth day following such public announcement. In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual general meeting) notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made. The full text of the Advance Notice Policy is available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
