West Timmins Continues to Intersect Gold Mineralization on Thorne Property, Timmins, Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2007) - West Timmins Mining Inc. (TSX:WTM) announced today the results from four drills holes on the Thorne Property, part of the Company's West Timmins Gold Project. Highlights include the intersection of the eastern extension of the Hanging Wall Zone (1.50 metres grading 9.98 g/t gold) and the up plunge intersection of the 4500 Zone. Both zones of mineralization are part of the Golden River Trend; a 5.0 kilometre long trend of gold mineralized occurrences which crosses the Company's 100% owned Thorne Property.

Drill hole GS07-28 extended the high grade core of the Hanging Wall Zone previously intersected in drill holes TH97-222 and 223 (drilled by the Company's predecessor) intersecting both the Hanging Wall Zone (6.00 metres grading 4.21 g/t gold) and the higher grade core of the zone (1.50 metres grading 9.98 g/t gold).

Hole GS07-26 intersected the mineralized structure associated with the 4500 Zone on the property returning multiple intersections of anomalous gold mineralization through a 99.50 metre interval of moderate to strong alteration (see Table below). The hole appears to have been drilled into the hanging wall of the higher grade core of the 4500 Zone which was being targeted.

Drilling to the west-northwest of the Hanging Wall, along a geophysically interpreted fault zone, intersected a broad zone of anomalous gold mineralization (19.50 metres grading 0.42 g/t gold) at shallow levels in hole GS07-27.

Quality Control and Assurance

Geochemical results reported herein are from halved drill core samples collected from the Company's West Timmins Gold project. Drill results reported were collected by the Company and are subject to the Company's quality control program. For quality control purposes blank, duplicate and analytical control standards were inserted into the sample sequence at irregular intervals. Sampling of the drill core was conducted on site at the Company's Timmins exploration office by trained personnel and sealed samples were transported to the analytical facilities of Accurassay in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Samples were assayed for gold by standard fire assay-ICP finish with a 50 gram charge. Gold values in excess of 3.00 g/t have been re-submitted for fire assay with gravimetric finish as part of the Company's quality control program. The remaining half of the drill core is stored on-site at the Company's Timmins exploration office. Mr. Darin Wagner (M.Sc., P.Geo), the Company's President, has acted as qualified person for this news release. The qualified person has examined the drill core from the holes reported and has reviewed the sampling and quality control procedures.
