WTM Vests 51% Interest in Allerston Gold Property, Timmins, Ontario and Delivers Joint Venture Notice

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 24, 2008) - West Timmins Mining Inc. (TSX:WTM) (the "Company") announced today that it has delivered notice to Explorers Alliance Corporation ("Explorers"), a privately held company, that it has fulfilled its obligations under the First Option of the Allerston Property Agreement and has now vested its initial 51% interest in the Allerston Gold Property, located in Timmins, Ontario. The Allerston Gold Property forms part of WTM's 114 square kilometre West Timmins Gold Project and is centred 5.0 kilometres north of WTM's Thunder Creek joint venture which hosts the high-grade Rusk gold discovery.

Exploration work by WTM and previous operators have confirmed the presence of a broad gold mineralized deformation zone extending for over 4.50 kilometres across the Allerston Property. Individual drill intercepts ranging from just above detection values to a high of 38.27 g/t gold over 0.50 metres have been returned from this system in limited, shallow drilling completed to date.

In conjunction with delivery of the First Option vesting notice, WTM delivered Joint Venture Notice to Explorers. A 51% WTM/49% Explorers joint venture, with WTM as operator, will now be formed to fund future exploration and development of the Allerston Gold Property, henceforth the Allerston Joint Venture.

WTM has also delivered a cash call to Explorers, in the amount of $238,500, which represents Explorers 49% share of advanced exploration contributions to the joint venture. Explorers will have 60 days to meet the cash call or suffer dilution of its interest under the terms of the Allerston Property Agreement.
