Vancouver, Canada - Tinka Resources Limited (the “Company”), (TSXV:TK) (Frankfurt:TLD) (Pinksheets :TKRFF), announces that the Company has received a report from an independent geophysicist on the second induced polarization (IP) survey undertaken on the Ayawilca zone on the Company’s Colquipucro project west-central Peru. The pole-dipole survey consisted of 5 new lines located east of and contiguous with the 2010 IP survey, totalling 8.8 km, and the southern extension to 7 lines from the 2010 survey, totalling 3.6 km. This second IP survey was undertaken because the current drill program has shown a direct correlation between sulphide mineralization in holes 52B and 53 and an extensive 3-D inversion IP anomaly discovered in the 2010 survey (see press release dated August 24, 2010).

Mr Carter says: “We are extremely pleased with the results of this survey as it indicates that the sulphide mineralization may be more than twice the size than was first indicated. The Company has already commenced preparation of an amendment to the current drill permit to include drill platforms over this new anomaly. The previously-identified IP anomaly is currently being drill-tested; three holes are complete and at least four more are planned from the existing permitted drill sites.”

The pattern of the 3-D inversion anomalies appears to follow the trend of the dominant fault structures (east-west) mapped on surface, There may be up to three parallel structures separated over about 700 m north-south, and the middle one may be the contiguous extension of the 2010 anomaly spanning a distance of 1,200 m east-west.

Drilling is continuing at Zone 1 to test the northern extension of the NI43-101 compliant silver resource.
