Genco Reports Results for Third Quarter

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 13, 2009) - Genco Resources Ltd. (TSX:GGC) reports results for the Company's third financial quarter ended September 30, 2009. The full version of the financial statements and the management discussion and analysis are available on SEDAR at and on Genco's website at

Genco recorded a net loss of $1,487,874 for the quarter and a net loss of $691,956 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2009, compared with a net loss of $894,004 and $3,202,424 for the corresponding three and nine month periods in 2008. Expenses for the quarter consisted mainly of general administrative costs in Canada and Mexico, care and maintenance costs at La Guitarra Mine in Mexico, depreciation and foreign exchange losses.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2009 Genco did not record any production or sales at its La Guitarra Mine which remains closed as the result of an illegal road block 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 road block and resolve the mine access issue. Genco is confident that access to La Guitarra will be restored and production will resume at La Guitarra. 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.

Subsequent to September 30, 2009, Genco received notice from the Toronto Stock Exchange that the TSX had concluded a review of Genco's listing and determined that Genco satisfies the TSX's continued listing requirements.
