Torex Announces Maiden Sub-Sill Mineral Reserves and Mine Plan and Updates Mineral Reserves and Resources for the ELG Mine Complex

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/16/18 -- Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Torex") (TSX:TXG) announces an updated mineral resource estimate and mineral reserves estimate for its ELG Mine Complex ("ELG"), located in southwest Mexico. The announcement includes a maiden high grade, mineral reserve and mine plan for the Sub-Sill. The estimates were prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") and CIM Definition Standards.

Sub-Sill Mine Plan From The Maiden Mineral Reserve:

--  The mineral resource remains open in three directions. 
--  The In-fill drill program had a 100% success rate in upgrading Inferred
    mineral resource tonnes to Indicated mineral resource tonnes. 
--  The mineral reserve includes 71% of the Indicated mineral resource
    ounces at a 4.6 g/t cut-off-grade. Inferred ounces are not included. 
--  Estimated $86 million of before tax, free cash flow. 
--  Estimated 29 months of production, delivers 480,000 tonnes at 11.65 g/t,
    containing 180,000 Au ounces: 
    --  8 months to get to the steady state production rate of 850 tonnes
        per day. 76,000 tonnes at 15.30 g/t Au while main ventilation and
        electrical infrastructure are being established.  
    --  11 months at 850 tpd producing 283,000 tonnes at 11.40 g/t Au. 
    --  For the remaining 10 months, the current mineral reserve supports
        the mining of 120,000 tonnes, at 9.93 g/t Au.  
    --  Additional drilling is planned with the objective of upgrading
        inferred mineral resources, identifying additional mineral
        resources, and extending the mine life. 
--  Recoveries average 84.4% over the mine plan, 88.30% when Cu grade is
   less than 0.1%. 85.8% when Cu grade is between 0.1%, and 1% and 80.1%
    when Cu grade is greater than 1%. The average expected Ag recovery is
    26.2% for the mine plan. 
--  Total Cash Cost(1) of $479/Au Oz and All In Sustaining Cost (AISC)(1) of
    $512/Au Oz. 
    --  Mining costs average $110/tonne over the mine plan. Processing and
        G&A are the same as for the ELG open pits 
--  Total capital required is $23M, of which, $22M will be spent in the
    first year. 
--  There are 6 mining areas in the Sub-Sill mine plan, that range in size
    from 40 - 100m length on strike, 40 - 200m on plunge, and 3.5 to 25m
    thick dipping at an average of 24 degrees. 
    --  The mining method is post pillar, cut and fill.
        

Fred Stanford, President and CEO of Torex stated: "This End-Of-Year (EOY) 2017, update of mineral reserves and resources for the ELG Mine Complex is really all about the underground discoveries at the Sub-Sill. (The mineral reserves and resources for the open pits remain largely unchanged except for depletion.) As anticipated, the Sub-Sill provides excellent near-term cash flow, and is open in at least three directions, which provides for the potential to extend that cash flow into the medium/long term." He added: "The engineers have done an excellent job in designing a projected low CAPEX operation to manage the complexities of the ore-body geometry. We look forward to continuing the drill program as soon as possible, with the objective of adding and upgrading mineral resources, and ultimately, to profitably extend the mine life."

ELG U/G Sub-Sill Mine Plan

A post pillar mechanized cut and fill mine plan has been designed using the updated Mineral Resource Estimation and geological model resulting in a high grade, Probable Mineral Reserve, of 0.48 million tonnes at 11.65 g/t Au for 180,000 gold ounces at an average in situ cut-off grade 4.60 g/t Au cut-off grade.

Three Cut-Off Grades were calculated to account for the affect of Cu grades on recoveries and used to guide the design of cut and fill production shapes. There are 6 mining zones in the mine plan which range in size from 40 - 100m length on strike, 40 - 200m on plunge and 3.5 to 25m thick dipping at an average 24 degrees. The mine plan converts 71% of Indicated Mineral Resource Au ounces to Probable Mineral Reserve Au ounces.

Development and infrastructure construction were designed to provide access to the production areas, main ventilation via a second portal and to service the mining operations. The production, development and infrastructure construction were costed and scheduled in a financial model.

The mine plan is expected to deliver 480,000 tonnes of high grade (11.65 gpt Au) ore containing 180,000 Au ounces to the ELG Processing Plant over a 29-month period. The Mine is expected to ramp up over an 8-month period with estimated production of 76,000 tonnes at 15.30 g/t Au while main ventilation and electrical infrastructure are being established. Steady state production is expected to continue for 11 months with estimated production of 283,000 tonnes (850 tpd) at 11.40 g/t Au, the main constraint being backfilling rate. For the remaining 10 months, the mine plan is expected to deliver 120,000 tonnes (400 tpd) at 9.93 g/t Au.

Sub-Sill ore is expected to perform well in the existing Plant with expected Au recoveries ranging from 88.30% when Cu grade is less than 0.1%, 85.8% when Cu grade is between 0.1% and 1% and 80.1% when Cu grade is greater than 1%. The average expected recovery is 84.4% for the mine plan. The expected recoveries for Ag range from 67.3% when Cu grade is less than 0.1%, 37.1% when Cu grade is between 0.1% and 1% and 14.1% when Cu grades are greater than 1%. The average expected Ag recovery is 26.2% for the mine plan.

During steady state production (approximately 850 tpd), expected operating costs average $108.35/tonne, including $79.97/tonne mining cost, $19.33/tonne processing and $9.05/tonne in general administration (G&A). Over the 29-month mine plan, operating costs are expected to average $140.86 /tonne.

Total capital required to execute the mine plan is estimated to be $23M, of which, $22M will be spent in the first year. Of the total capital spend, $9.5M is needed for lateral development.

Assuming the production, costs and plant recoveries listed above, the mine plan is expected to generate $86M in free cash flow (before tax) with a Cash Cost of $479/Au Oz and All In Sustaining Cost (AISC) of $512/Au Oz.

Sub-Sill Geology

The Sub-Sill deposit occurs at the south end of the El Limon deposit 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 of the Cuautla and Morelos formations. Gold mineralization at El Limon open pit is hosted in skarn developed immediately above a large granodiorite sill. At the Sub-Sill area, multiple skarn zones have been recognized underneath the El Limon Sill, developed along the contacts between marbles of the Morelos formation and multiple granodiorite sills that are interpreted as late stage porphyritic intrusions that emanate from the main body of granodiorite. The best developed skarn zones at the Sub-Sill area, strike NE-SW and dip between 35 degrees and 45 degrees to the northwest. They host multiple horizons with high grade gold mineralization that vary in strike length from approximately 50 meters up to 200 meters, with apparent widths varying from 2 meters to 36 meters. The trend of the overall skarn body in the Sub-Sill area is N-S to NE-SW and appears to connect to previously recognized skarn and gold mineralization at the Limon Sur deposit 200 meters to the SW.

Mineralization at the Sub-Sill deposit is primarily gold, strongly associated with bismuth and variable contents of silver and copper. Gold occurs in variably sulfidized pyrrhotite enriched skarn, while silver and copper mineralization is primarily determined by the degree of sulfidation of the host skarn. Mineralization is associated with retrograde alteration characterized by amphibole, calcite and quartz, with lessor amounts of chlorite +/- epidote, affecting pyroxene-garnet exoskarn and granodiorite-related endoskarn. Locally mineralization occurs in narrow lenses of massive sulfides.

Mineral Resource Estimate Methodology

Within the Sub-Sill project 85 drill holes (16,826 meters) support the mineral resource estimate. Assays were composited into 2.5 meter lengths for estimation into 2.5 meter cubic blocks. MineSight® a commercially-available geologic modeling and mine planning software package, was used to produce a three-dimensional block model. Specific gravity (SG) was assigned by rock type from 107 wax immersion density determinations. Gold, silver and copper grades, within the Sub-Sill resource model, were estimated using grade domains, defined from Probability Assigned Constrained Kriging (PACK) and lithologic codes. Ordinary kriging was used to interpolate grade. Mineral Resources take into account geologic, mining, and processing constraints. Mineral Resources are classified in accordance with the 2014 CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves and the 2003 CIM Estimation of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves Best Practice Guidelines.

Mineral Reserve Estimate Methodology

The estimated underground Sub-Sill Mineral Reserves have been based on a mine design including the development and infrastructure construction required to extract the Indicated portion of the Mineral Resource Estimate using the Mechanized Cut and Fill (MCAF) mining method. The three-dimensional block model created for the Mineral Resource Estimate was taken into Deswik® software suite, a commercially-available mine planning software package, and used as the base of an MCAF mine plan. A cost model was built to determine 3 Break Even Cut-Off Grades (BECOG) for varying mill recoveries dependent on Cu content. The BECOG averages 4.60 g/t Au. The mine plan physicals such as SG, Gold, Silver and copper grades were estimated by applying the mine design shapes against the block model, unplanned dilution and mine recovery were also applied. Mineral Reserves take into account geologic, mining and processing constraints. Mineral Reserves are classified in accordance with the 2014 CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves and the 2003 CIM Estimation of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves Best Practice Guidelines.

2017 In-Fill and Step-Out Drill Program Update

The in-fill and step out drill program started in Q2/17 is complete. This program has succeeded in upgrading inferred resources, testing the extents and prospect areas to the north, south, west, east and at depth of the known resources.

The in-fill program has completed 45 of 47 holes (96%) of the diamond drill holes that were planned with the objective of upgrading 1 million Inferred tonnes to the Indicated confidence category. The 45 holes upgraded 950,000 Inferred tonnes to the Indicated category, or 95% of the target, with 96% of the planned holes. This represents a 100% conversion ratio for Inferred tonnes to the Indicated confidence category, and delivered a 269% increase in the number of Indicated tonnes.

The step-out program has completed 39 of 47 holes achieving 11,896 meters of 13,105m planned on a 70m x 70m drill spacing. The purpose of this program is to test the prospective areas to the north, south, west and east of the known resource.
