Tinka drills 20 m of 7.1% zinc including 14 m of 9.6% zinc at Ayawilca Colquipucro Project, Peru

VANCOUVER, Nov. 8, 2012 /CNW/ - Tinka Resources Limited (the "Company"), (TSXV - TK; Frankfurt - TLD; Pinksheets -TKRFF), announces that the Company has received the results for drill hole A12-04A at Ayawilca, west-central Peru. This hole was drilled vertically from the same platform as the previously announced DDH-53 (see press release February 23, 2012).

Mr Carter said: "We are extremely pleased with these results as they continue to demonstrate the presence of strong zinc mineralization within the western part of the IP anomaly. Drilling is continuing to test these geophysical conductors".

Hole A12-04A intercepted massive and semi-massive sulphides, consisting of pyrite, sphalerite and lesser galena, chalcopyrite and arsenopyrite hosted by sedimentary breccia, greywacke and siltstone that may belong to the Oyon formation which underlies the Gollyar sandstones, host of the silver mineralization at Zone 1. The mineralization is often accompanied by hematite, magnetite and chlorite alteration; the chlorite and magnetite increased with depth in this hole.

As yet, the geometry of the mineralization is not fully understood. The mineralization is believed to have been sourced from steeply dipping structures that underlie this sedimentary sequence, thus some of the mineralization may have a steep to near-vertical component; however, the irregular nature of some of it may suggest a replacement style which could trend in any direction and as such true width cannot be determined at this time.

All diamond drilling has been performed using HQ diameter drill rods, reducing to NQ diameter if required. All core has been logged and split on site under the supervision of Tinka geologists with sampling done on two metre intervals. All the samples have been transported by Company staff to SGS Laboratories in Lima, Peru for ICP analyses using multi-acid digestion. Analytical standards and blanks were routinely introduced in the sample suites sent to the laboratory, and samples that exceeded their respective threshold levels for Ag, Zn and Pb were re-assayed by specific atomic absorption techniques.
