Timmins Gold Corp.: 100% of Outstanding Warrants Exercised

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2007) - Timmins Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TMM) is pleased to announce that a total of 7,601,047 warrants were exercised at a price of $0.70 per warrant share. These constitute all of the warrants issued pursuant to a brokered private placement that closed in May, 2007, including approximately 1,297,207 Broker warrants. The Company received gross proceeds of $5,320,732 from the warrant exercises.

The largest exercise of warrants was made by Sprott Asset Management Ltd., as agent, who exercised 2,000,000 warrants to bring its holdings to 6,000,000 common shares, which is just under 10% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company. Other large exercises were made by Bolder Investment Partners, Ltd. with 1,297,207 warrants and Macquarie Resource Capital Canada Ltd. with 500,000 warrants.

The proceeds from the exercise will be used to make various capital expenditures associated with recommencing operations at the San Francisco mine (CDN$4,000,000) including deposits on the acquisition of secondary and tertiary crushers, screens, conveyors, refurbishing of existing equipment including the gold plant and primary crusher, construction of the heap leach pads and exploration of the 20,000 hectare Norma and Patricia claims immediately to the west of the San Francisco claims. Additional funds will be allocated to drill programs on the Tequila (US $300,000) and Las Coloradas (US$500,000) projects. The balance will be added to the existing general working capital. The drill programs on the Tequila and Las Coloradas projects are expected to commence shortly.

The Company has commissioned a pre-feasibility study on the San Francisco deposit which is expected by the end of 2007.
