Tinka Commences IP Survey at Colquipucro in Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 10, 2010) - Tinka Resources Limited (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TK)(PINK SHEETS:TKRFF)(FRANKFURT:TLD). Andrew Carter, President, reports that the Company has commenced an induced polarization (IP) survey on the Company' 100 percent-owned Colquipucro silver project, west-central Peru.

The survey will be contiguous with the previous survey performed on Zone 1 in 2006. It will test the yet-undrilled Ayawilca zone located 1.5 km south of the NI43-101 compliant 20.3 million ounce silver resource, with an immediate, contiguous potential target (see April 24, 2008 news release), drilled in 2007. The survey will incorporate approximately 12 line-kilometres of grid.

Following the review of the IP survey, an eight hole reverse circulation (RC) drill program is planned to test the Ayawilca zone. The favourable sandstone unit, intensely brecciated next to a major transverse fault system, is believed to be thicker here than at Zone 1, and the IP survey should help determine if this interpretation is correct. An amendment to the existing drill permit, to include the eight reverse circulation holes, has been lodged with the authorities for approval.

The Company's Qualified Person, John Nebocat (P.Eng), has reviewed and approved the contents of this press release.

On behalf of the Board,

Andrew Carter, President & CEO
