West Timmins Mining Intersects High Grade Gold Mineralization from 4800 Zone, Thorne Property, West Timmins Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 28, 2007) - West Timmins Mining Inc. (TSX:WTM) announced today the results of drill testing of the 4800 Zone on the Thorne Property, part of the Company's West Timmins Gold Project. Key gold intercepts include 2.35 metres grading 7.04 g/t in hole GS07-14, 1.10 meters grading 11.40 g/t in hole 17 and 1.10 metres grading 13.45 g/t in hole 01 - all at depths of less than 50 metres below surface. The reported drilling was completed as part of WTM's ongoing 12,000 metre drill program on the West Timmins Gold Project. Each of the 11 holes reported intersected the 4800 Zone which has now been traced along strike for 125 metres and to a vertical depth of approximately 76 metres. Drilling continues targeting depth extensions of the 4800 Zone and a number of other high-priority targets on the Thorne and adjacent properties within the 114 square kilometre West Timmins Project Area.

"These initial drill results, in combination with our recently completed high resolution airborne magnetic survey of the property, provide key data which will better enable us to target the higher grade portions of the 4800 Zone and several of the other gold mineralized zones within the Golden River Deformation Zone going forward," said Darin Wagner, President of West Timmins Mining Inc.

Table 1: Anomalous Gold Intersections 4800 Zone, Thorne Property; reported
drill intercepts are estimated to range between 100 and 115% of
true thickness.


Previous testing of the 4800 Zone by Band-Ore Resources Ltd. in 1996-97 outlined a zone of high-grade, near surface gold mineralization within strongly altered sedimentary lithologies. The recently completed drill program has extended the zone along strike and down dip and suggests the highest grade and thickest portion of the mineralized zone occur in a shallowly plunging fold nose which was not previously identified and which will be targeted for additional testing.

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. The initial results from drill hole GS 07-18 failed to meet the Company's stringent quality control standards and will be reported upon receipt and review of re-assay of samples from this hole. 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 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.
