Tinka Mobilizes Drill Rig to Ayawilca Project, Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 25, 2013) - Tinka Resources Limited (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TK)(FRANKFURT:TLD)(PINKSHEETS:TKRFF) announces that the Company has mobilized a drill rig to the Ayawilca project for resumption of drilling. With the permit to continue exploration at Ayawilca from a further 74 platforms, the Company plans to undertake a systematic drill program, stepping out with drill platforms to the south, east and north of the currently drilled area over the additional distances of approximately 1,000 metres east-west by 800 metres north-south.

Mr. Andrew Carter, Company President and CEO, said: "We are pleased to be able to resume drilling from the newly approved platforms. The Company will aggressively drill from a selection of these new platforms with the objective of identifying further mineralization within the identified geophysical anomalies."

Two platforms have been constructed so far: one is located on section line 333500E, midway between the large zinc intercept, which included 70 metres of 4.8% zinc (see press release dated January 8, 2013), found in hole A12-08, located to the NW, and hole A13-04, that intercepted wide intervals of zinc as well as silver and copper mineralization, which included 18 metres of 41 g/t silver and 10 metres of 1.07% copper (see press release dated May 22, 2013), located to the NE. This new hole (A13-10) will test for continuity between the large intercepts mentioned above, which are about 200 m apart.

The second hole will be located 100 m east of A13-04 (and A13-01) along section line 333700E. A long, roughly east-west fault structure extends in this direction, and it may be a mineral feeder along the southern edge of the large induced polarization (IP) anomaly (See below map).

The IP and magnetic anomalies intensify further to the east and north within the 1,000 metres by 800 metres area described previously; these targets will be drill tested after the initial southernmost holes are completed.

The qualified person for the Company's projects, Mr. John Nebocat (P.Eng.), V.P. of Exploration for the Company, has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.
