Timmins Gold Announces Restatement of Q2 and Q3 Financial Statements

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 25, 2011) - Timmins Gold Corp. (TSX:TMM) ("Timmins Gold" or the "Corporation") -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Further to its news releases dated November 30, 2010 and March 2, 2011, the Corporation has proceeded with a restatement of the financial statements it initially filed for the three month period ended June 30, 2010 (the "Q1 Restatement") and the three and six month periods ended September 30, 2010 (the "Q2 Restatement", with the Q1 Restatement, collectively, the "Restatements"). All currency in these reports is in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated.

The Restatements are being made to correct an adjustment to the amortization of the Corporation's strip ratio over the life of the Corporation's San Francisco Gold Mine located in Sonora, Mexico. The adjustments reflect an amortization over the life of the mine rather than accounting for it in the quarter it was incurred.

The net result of the Q1 Restatement is a reduction in cash costs to $US697 per ounce for the three month period ended June 30, 2010, and the net result of the Q2 Restatement is a reduction in cash costs to $US515 per ounce for the three and six month periods ended September 30, 2010.
