Drilling Begins on West Timmins' Yoquivo Gold-Silver Project, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 29, 2007) - West Timmins Mining Inc. (TSX:WTM) and partner Konigsberg Corporation (OTCBB:KGBC) announced today that a 10-12 hole, 3,000 metre diamond drill program has commenced on the Yoquivo Gold-Silver Project in Chihuahua State, Mexico. The Yoquivo Project covers the entirety of the former producing Yoquivo Gold-Silver District located 35 km southeast of, and along regional trend from, the recently opened Ocampo Gold-Silver Mine of Gammon Lake Resources (stated reserves 61.68 Mt @ 1.19 g/t gold, 55 g/t silver).

Drilling at Yoquivo will initially target high grade gold-silver mineralization in the El Gambusino area, where recently completed surface sampling (NR 07-07, Feb. 19, 2007) returned an average grade of 4.00 g/t gold and 581 g/t silver, including one grab sample which returned 15.45 g/t gold and 2,860 g/t silver. Drilling will also target the extension of the San Francisco Mine on the Property. Historically reported average production grades from the San Francisco Mine are 10.90 g/t gold and 1,120 g/t silver.

"We are very excited to have drilling underway at Yoquivo," said Darin Wagner, President of West Timmins Mining. "Our recent sampling has confirmed the high-grade nature of the epithermal gold-silver systems in the Yoquivo District and identified previously unrecognized sheeted vein zones which offer potential bulk tonnage targets in several areas. Both styles of mineralization will be tested by the announced drill program."

Work to date on the Yoquivo Project has identified a total of 22 historic adits and shafts along 6 principal vein/breccia trends from which high-grade gold and silver epithermal style mineralization have been recovered previously.

Subject to an Option Agreement dated May 31, 2006 Konigsberg may earn an initial 50% interest in the Yoquivo Project by making cash payments of US $200,000, issuing to West Timmins 1,000,000 common shares of Konigsberg, funding US $1,000,000 U.S. in exploration expenditures on the property over a 24 month period and making all cash payments required by West Timmins to the underlying property vendor. West Timmins Mining is the operator of the Yoquivo Project.

West Timmins also announced the Board of Directors has approved the grant of 220,000 incentive stock options to employees, consultants and advisors to the Company. The incentive stock options have an exercise price of $0.63 and shall expire on March 5, 2012 if not exercised.

West Timmins Mining currently has four drills turning on three gold projects in North America. In Canada drilling continues on the Company's namesake West Timmins Gold Project where a number of gold mineralized intercepts were recently reported from drill testing of the 4800 Zone on the Thorne Property. On the Company's 100% owned Montaña de Oro gold project in Sonora, Mexico the Company currently has two drills testing a number of targets including extensions of the high-grade El Rodeo gold-silver discovery.
