WTM Reports 18.35 Metres Grading 5.15% Zinc, 0.45% Copper, 25.65 g/t Silver and 0.50 g/t Gold From Massive Sulphide Intercept at Montana de Oro, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 14, 2007) - West Timmins Mining Inc. (TSX:WTM) announced that drill hole LC07-07 has returned 18.35 metres (60.32 feet) grading 5.15% zinc, 0.45% copper, 25.65 g/t silver and 0.50 g/t gold. The massive sulphide portion of this interval, initially announced April 26, 2007 (NR 07-15), returned 7.55 metres (24.77 feet) grading 7.28% zinc, 0.67% copper, 40.79 g/t silver and 0.91 g/t gold including a 0.90 metre massive sphalerite zone which assayed 27.22% zinc.

The La Dura West (LC) Zone intersected in Hole LC07-07 is located 1450 metres west and 300 metres vertically below the La Dura (LD) East Discovery which returned 95.75 metres grading 2.51% combined lead + zinc, 8.81 g/t silver and 0.08 g/t gold (NR 07-16 May 29, 2007; see location map at www.westtimminsmining.com/main/?laDura).

"The discovery of a large base-precious metal bearing system in the La Dura area of the Montana de Oro Project is a major step forward for WTM," said Darin Wagner, President of West Timmins Mining Inc. "The discoveries in the La Dura East and West zones are the first stages in outlining the potential of this large intrusive-related system which extends for over 2.0 kilometres east-west and over 3.0 kilometres north-south. The current Montana de Oro drill program will be expanded significantly to allow for aggressive testing of both discoveries and the entire La Dura mineralized system."

The La Dura discoveries are located in the south-central portion of West Timmins 100% owned, 495 square kilometre Montana de Oro Project in the Sierra Madre Belt of Sonora, Mexico. The Montana de Oro Project sits at the heart of the Three States District, less than 50 kilometres from seven new mines or mine development projects including Goldcorp's El Sauzal gold deposit, Palmarejo Silver and Gold's Palmarejo-Trogan deposit and Pan American Silver's Alamo Dorado silver mine.

Quality Control and Assurance

Geochemical results reported herein are from halved drill core samples collected from the Company's Montana de Oro project. Core sampling is conducted on site by trained personnel and sealed samples are transported to ALS-Chemex's preparation facilities in Hermosillo, Mexico by employees of consulting firm Minera Cascabel S.A. de C. V. on behalf of West Timmins Mining. Samples were assayed for gold by standard fire assay- ICP finish with a 30 gram charge. Samples additionally underwent 34 element ICP-MS analysis. Silver, zinc, copper and lead values in excess of 100 ppm, 1%, 1% and 1% respectively were re-analyzed by fire assay. The remaining half of the drill core is stored in a secure facility on the project site. For quality control purposes blank and analytical control standards were inserted into the sample sequence at regular intervals. Mr. Darin Wagner (M.Sc., P.Geo.), the Company's President, has acted as qualified person for this news release. The QP has verified these results to the extent of having visually examined the drill core and confirmed that their were no discrepancies with the respect to the quality control samples submitted for analysis along with the drill core samples.
