Torex Sub-Sill Infill Drilling Demonstrates the Continuity of High Grade Gold Mineralization

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/17 -- Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Torex") (TSX: TXG) is pleased to announce high grade intercepts for the first 25 holes of its infill drilling program at the Sub-Sill deposit, associated with its El Limon-Guajes Mine (ELG) in Southwest Mexico. Highlighted intercepts from this program include 39.1 g/t Au over 9.7m, including 114.1 g/t Au over 2.9m, in borehole SST-49; 107.3 g/t Au over 3.1m in borehole SST-50; 32.1 g/t Au over 13.0m, including 68.9 g/t Au over 4.0m in borehole SST-54; and 27.3 g/t Au over 14.8m, including 62.1 g/t Au over 4.9m in borehole SST-47.

Fred Stanford, President & CEO of Torex stated: "The purpose of this infill diamond drill program is to upgrade a million tonnes of Inferred Sub-Sill resource to the Measured and Indicated categories, to facilitate mine planning and the determination of a maiden mineral reserve. Of the 50 planned infill diamond drill holes, 41 have been completed to date, and assays have been received for 25 of those holes. To date, the 'hit ratio' has been 96%, with 24 holes intercepting high grade gold mineralization. This exceptional demonstration of the continuity of the gold mineralization has held true across the current resource area, including at the periphery. This bodes well for the mine planning efforts and indicates the potential for resource expansion with step-out drilling. The timing is excellent as the access ramp is now through the sill and progressed 40 meters into the less prospective endoskarn, and is less than 10 meters from intersecting the highly prospective exoskarn." He added, "The step-out diamond drill program is getting underway as the infill program is completed. The step-out program comprises approximately 7,500 meters in 31 holes that test the area adjacent to the current resource and then out to the periphery of the prospective area for Sub-Sill expansion. This drill program is expected to be completed through the second half of the year and we look forward to sharing those results."

The Company's Sub-Sill in-fill diamond drilling program comprises a total of 50 holes (7455m). The purpose of the program, at a 17.5m x 17.5m drill pattern, is to upgrade 1,000,000 tonnes, over an area of 250m x 150m, to the Indicated category, which will support the development of a mine plan. The positive results to date confirm the geological continuity of the skarn zones as well as the continuity and the strength of the mineralization system. The drilling program also demonstrates the existence and continuity of other mantos underneath the main ore zone explored that were not included in the resource estimate due to the insufficient drilling at the time.

The Sub-Sill area is located between the El Limon and El Limon Sur ore deposits and under the El Limon Sill. The El Limon Sill area occurs in the Mesozoic carbonate-rich Morelos Platform, which has been intruded by Paleocene granodiorite stocks, sills and dikes. Skarn-hosted gold mineralization is developed along the contacts of the intrusive rocks and the enclosing carbonate-rich sedimentary rocks. Structurally, the El Limon Sill target area as well as El Limon and El Limon Sur ore deposits are hosted in a graben bounded by La Flaca fault to the west and the Antena fault to the east, and both are considered to be potential feeders for the mineralization. At the El Limon Sill area, several skarn zones have been identified along the contacts of the carbonate rich sediments and marbles of the Cuautla and Morelos formations and sills fingering out from the main granodiorite stock. High grade gold mineralization has been intercepted in all the different skarn horizons. Within the skarn zones individual ore shoots vary in strike length from approximately 50 meters up to 200 meters, with apparent widths varying from 2 meters to 27 meters.

Mineralization at the El Limon Sill area is primarily gold, associated with variable contents of silver and copper. Gold occurs in low and high sulfidized pyrrhotite rich skarns, while silver and copper mineralization is primarily determined by the degree of sulfidation of the host skarn. Mineralization is strongly associated with a late stage retrograde alteration characterized by amphiboles, chlorite, calcite +/- quartz +/- epidote, affecting pyroxene-garnet marble related exoskarn and granodiorite porphyry related endoskarn. Locally mineralization occurs in narrow lenses of massive sulfides.

QA/QC and Qualified Person

At the Morelos Gold Project, all of the El Limon Sill target analytical work is performed by SGS de Mexico S.A. de C.V. ("SGS") in Durango, Mexico and at SGS Mineral Services in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and ALS Chemex de Mexico S.A. de C.V.

Sample preparation is done at SGS sample preparation laboratory in Durango, Mexico. The gold analyses (fire assay with an atomic absorption or gravimetric finish) are completed at SGS analytical laboratory in Durango, Mexico and multi-element geochemical analyses are Copper Sequential Leaching are completed at their analytical facilities in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Check assays samples are analyzed at ALS Chemex Vancouver, BC, Canada. SGS and ALS Chemex are independent of the Company.

The Company has a Quality Assurance/Quality Control ("QA/QC") program in place that includes 5% of each of the certified reference materials, blanks and field duplicates. 10% of pulp samples are analyzed at a second laboratory as part of the QA/QC program to ensure the batch to batch relative bias remains constant and that absolute accuracy at anomalous to near cut-off grades is measured and acceptable. The QA/QC program as designed has been approved by Bureau Veritas and is currently overseen by Carlo Nasi, Chief Mine Geologist for the Morelos Gold Project.

The scientific and technical data contained in this news release pertaining to the Morelos Project has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Mark P. Hertel as a Qualified Person under NI 43-101. Mr. Hertel is a Registered Member of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration, has experience relevant to the style of mineralization under consideration and is an independent consultant. Mr. Hertel has verified the data disclosed, including sampling, analytical, and test data underlying the drill results and he consents to the inclusion in this release of said data in the form and context in which it appears.

Additional information on the El Limon deposit, the mineral resource estimate for the Sub-Sill deposit and analytical labs is available in the Company's most recent annual information form filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and the Company's website at www.torexgold.com.

Torex is an emerging intermediate gold producer based in Canada, engaged in the exploration, development and operation of its 100% owned Morelos Gold Property, an area of 29,000 hectares in the highly prospective Guerrero Gold Belt located 180 kilometers southwest of Mexico City. Within this property, Torex has the El Limon Guajes Mine, which announced commercial production in March of 2016 and the Media Luna Project, which is in an advanced stage of exploration, and for which the Company issued a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) in 2015. The property remains 75% unexplored.
