Timmins Gold Reports Earnings from Operations of $12.9 Million in First Quarter of 2014

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Timmins Gold Corp. (TSX: TMM)(NYSE MKT: TGD) ("Timmins Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014 ("Q1 2014"). The comparative period is the first quarter ended March 31, 2013 ("Q1 2013"). All results are presented in United States dollars ("US Dollars") unless otherwise stated. Readers should refer to the 2014 management discussion and analysis and condensed interim consolidated financial statements for complete information.

"Our mine expansion and cost reduction programs have allowed Timmins Gold to continue to deliver solid operating and financial results" stated Mr. Bruce Bragagnolo, CEO of Timmins Gold. "We expanded production by 22% to over 36,000 gold equivalent ounces at a cash cost of $703 per ounce and generated material free cash. Our balance sheet continues to get stronger, with a cash and cash equivalents balance as at March 31st of over $44 million after paying down $4.5 million in debt and $8.5 million in payables during the quarter. We are well positioned to continue to generate strong free cash flow this year."

Q1 2014 HIGHLIGHTS


--  Metal revenues were a record $47.1 million, compared to $45.9 million
    during Q1 2013. This increase over the prior year is primarily due to
    increased ounces sold, offset by the decrease in the gold price since
    April 2013. The average London PM Fix price was $1,294 per gold ounce,
    compared to $1,632 per gold ounce during Q1 2013. The average realized
    gold price was $1,280 per gold ounce, compared to $1,602 per gold ounce
    during Q1 2013.

--  Earnings from operations were $12.9 million, compared to $19.3 million
    during Q1 2013. This was mainly due to the reduced revenues realized
    from the lower gold price.

--  Earnings and total comprehensive income were $8.1 million or $0.05 per
    share, compared to $14.3 million or $0.10 per share during Q1 2013.

--  Cash flows provided by operating activities were $12.3 million, compared
    to $21.8 million during Q1 2013.

--  Cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2014 were $44.4 million after
    investing $0.5 million on exploration, $0.5 million on sustaining capex,
    $1.6 million on expansion programs and $3.0 million on deferred
    stripping. Cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2013 were $26.9
    million.
--  The Company produced a record 35,413 ounces of gold and sold a record
    36,763 ounces of gold, compared to 28,328 and 28,642, respectively,
    during Q1 2013. This change over prior year is due to increased
    throughput and crushing capacity.

--  The Company's cash cost per ounce on a by-product basis was $703 (all-in
    sustaining cash cost per ounce on a by-product basis - $790), compared
    to $703 (all-in sustaining cash cost per ounce on a by-product basis -
    $872) during Q1 2013. The maintenance of cash costs was primarily driven
    by cost reduction initiatives offset by lower grades realized in Q1 2014
    of 0.76 grams of gold per tonne ("g/t Au"), compared to the Q1 2013 0.83
    g/t Au.

--  On February 11, 2014 the Company closed a bought deal financing which
    generated net proceeds of $24.2 million (C$26.7 million) on issuance of
    18,920,000 common shares of the Company at a price of C$1.50 per share.

--  On February 28, 2014, the Company repaid $4.5 million (C$5.0 million) in
    principal of the $16.4 million (C$18.0 million) loan facility
    outstanding at December 31, 2013.

--  Timmins Gold is committed to the safety, health and well-being of its
    workers and families. The Company's goal is to continue with its zero-
    incident work environment and strong culture of safety.
