Genco Reports Results for Second Quarter

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 14, 2009) - Genco Resources Ltd. (TSX:GGC) reports results for its second financial quarter ended June 30, 2009.

Genco's net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 was $203,436, compared with a net loss of $1,023,013 for the quarter ended June 30, 2008. Income for the period was attributable to currency gains and interest income.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2009, Genco did not record any production or sale at its La Guitarra Mine. La Guitarra remains closed as the result of an illegal roadblock on the public road leading to the mine site. Representatives of La Guitarra continue to work with state and local officials, as well as local community leaders, to remove the roadblock and resolve the mine access issue. Genco is confident that access to La Guitarra will be restored and production will resume at La Guitarra, but cannot predict with certainty when this will occur. Genco has maintained continuous security on-site at La Guitarra during the mine closure and does not believe there will be any significant problems re-initiating production once site access is restored.

Genco's MD&A and full financial statements are available on SEDAR at and on Genco's corporate website at
