VANCOUVER, Jan. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Tinka Resources Limited (the "Company"), (TSXV - TK; Frankfurt - TLD; Pinksheets -TKRFF), announces additional results from the Company's ongoing drill campaign at the Ayawilca project located in west-central Peru.

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

The Company has, for the past year, been drill testing the southernmost of a series of large 3-D inversion, induced polarization (IP) anomalies that span a distance of 1,200 metres east-west; the anomalies remain open to the east. So far, twelve holes have tested the favourable horizon that lies beneath the Gollyar sandstones--the Gollyar is host to the silver resource found at the Company's Colquipucro project located 1.5 kilometres to the north. The underlying favourable host rock consists of sedimentary breccias, greywacke, siltstone and calcareous units believed to be part of the Oyon formation. So far, ten of the twelve holes intercepted either semi-massive or massive sulphides consisting of pyrite, pyrrhotite and sphalerite with lesser galena, chalcopyrite and arsenopyrite.
