Sentry Investments Inc. Announces Settlement With Timmins Gold Corp.

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- Sentry Investments Inc. ("Sentry"), who beneficially owns or controls approximately 17% of the issued and outstanding shares of Timmins Gold Corp. ("Timmins"), announces that it has reached agreement with Timmins on the slate of directors to be nominated at Timmins upcoming Annual and General Special Meeting of Shareholders scheduled for July 31, 2014 (the "Meeting").

As part of the settlement, Timmins will nominate eight directors at the Meeting instead of seven as previously announced. The nominees who will stand for election at the Meeting are George Brack, Bruce Bragagnolo, Bryan Coates, Stephen Lang, Luc Lessard, Paula Rogers and Jose Vizquerra Benavides, the seven Timmins nominees previously announced, as well as Anthony Hawkshaw, who was previously a Sentry nominee. Sentry has agreed to vote its common shares for the election of all eight nominees.

"Sentry's action to accelerate Board renewal has resulted in a Board slate with deep industry expertise and greater independence," said Kevin MacLean, Senior Vice-president and Senior Portfolio Manager of Sentry Investments Inc. "We would like to thank Timmins' Special Committee for their professional approach to achieving our common objectives."

Sentry also thanks the six mining industry veterans who assisted in this process for their valuable contribution to a successful outcome. "Troy Fierro, Ritch Hall, Tony Harwood, Tony Hawkshaw, Oliver Lennox-King and Marc Prefontaine set the bar high in the Board renewal process. I am grateful to all for their willingness to help," said Kevin MacLean.

Sentry believes this outcome is in the best interests of Timmins' shareholders, including our investment funds, and we look forward to having the eight nominees work closely together and with Timmins' management team to create value for all shareholders.
