TORONTO, Ontario, February 7, 2015 — Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Torex") (TSX:TXG) reports that they have received information that 12 community members, from the vicinity of their construction project, have gone missing from the public highway to Cocula, in the State of Guerrero, and from the public waterways. The whereabouts of these community members is unknown at this time. One of the 12 missing community members works for the company as a labourer and was off duty at the time he went missing. Three others work for contractors to the project. Our thoughts are with the individuals and their families, and our site team is providing support through this difficult time for the community.
The army has returned to the area and is currently conducting operations to determine the whereabouts of the missing community members. The Company curtailed operations on February 7th and through the night, to give the army the opportunity to conduct its operations without the complexity of project generated road traffic.
Torex is a growth-oriented, Canadian-based resource company engaged in the exploration and development of its 100% owned Morelos Gold Property, an area of 29,000 hectares in the highly prospective Guerrero Gold Belt located 180 kilometers southwest of Mexico City. Within this property, Torex has two projects: the El Limon-Guajes Project, currently under development, and the Media Luna Project, at an advanced stage of exploration. Torex intends to identify a pipeline of future economic deposits within its property, which remains 75% unexplored.
