Torex Reports First Quarter Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Torex") (TSX:TXG)(TSX:TXG.WT) announced today its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Fred Stanford, President and CEO of Torex stated, "The El Limon-Guajes Project construction is on schedule and on budget, with over 900,000 hours of work without a lost time injury. The recently signed US$375 million commitment letter for a debt agreement, once closed and assuming no additional capital requirements by the ESIA, will provide full funding for the Project and was a major de-risking step. Other recent de-risking steps include the receipt of the final required construction permits and the assembly of Torex's outstanding construction team that will build and operate the project. Our current exploration effort has shifted to the evaluation of the Media Luna resource, and field surveys to identify additional drill targets similar to those that host ore deposits on the property. At the end of March 2014, of the US$725 million Capex project budget, over US$400 million has been committed and over US$152 million has been invoiced. Building on our successful "on time-on budget" start-up, we are well positioned to pour our first ounce of gold in the third quarter of 2015."
