Torex to Significantly Add to the Number of Gold Ounces Mined and in Stockpile for Processing in 2015

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 23, 2014) - Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Torex") (TSX:TXG)(TSX:TXG.WT) is pleased to announce that mining of the "North Nose" pit has started, and this mining will add approximately 72,000 recoverable ounces into a stockpile that will be available when the plant is ready for commissioning in August of 2015. The Company expects to process this material in 2015, in addition to the previously planned 38,000 ounces of 2015 production from its El Limon-Guajes Project in Mexico.

Fred Stanford, President and CEO of Torex, said: "It has always been the intention to engineer a way to bring forward, into the 'ramp-up period', the tail end of the production schedule as defined in the feasibility study. Now that the operators and engineers are on site and developing into a team, they have been able to design a mining approach for the North Nose Pit that will work in concert with the construction of the Rope Conveyor. These ounces that they have been able to pull forward have an excellent grade at an average of 2.9 g/t and will be low cost at an average strip ratio of 1.9 / 1. With this good work to enhance early cash flows now complete, they will turn their attention to doing the same with the El Limon Sur deposit, for the 2016 portion of the ramp up period. Construction of the El Limon-Guajes Project continues to advance on schedule and on budget," he added.

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 kilometres southwest of Mexico City. Within this property, Torex has two projects: the El Limon and 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.
