September 21, 2015

TORONTO, Ontario, September 21, 2015 – Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Torex”) (TSX:TXG) is pleased to announce that its 100% owned subsidiary Minera Media Luna, S.A. de C.V. (“MML”) has signed a letter of intent (“LOI”) with the Ministry of Public Safety of the State Government of Guerrero (the “Ministry”), endorsed by the Federal Government, for the provision of permanent police presence in the areas adjacent to the Company’s Morelos Gold Property in southwest Mexico.

Fred Stanford, President and CEO of Torex stated: “Our team has been working collaboratively with the Mexican State and Federal Governments to establish a long-term program to provide security to the communities in and around our El Limon-Guajes (ELG) Mine and the Media Luna Project. This letter of intent is the first step in establishing a pilot program between the government and the private sector to provide security conditions that are conducive to economic development and social stability in the area.”

In the first stage of the pilot program, the Ministry will establish three check points with permanent police presence which, along with regular patrols, will control access to the communities in the areas adjacent to our ELG Mine. The Media Luna Project, will receive some security benefits from this pilot program, with more comprehensive coverage planned for later programs. MML will support the program with infrastructure including lodging for the police force, and goods and services in the form of transportation and vehicle maintenance. The program will come into effect immediately upon settling and signing a formal agreement on terms and conditions mutually acceptable to the parties and may be renewed on a yearly basis by agreement of the parties. It is the vision of the program to extend its influence to the entire Guerrero Gold Belt in the future through similar agreements with other mining companies operating in Guerrero.

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 (ELG) Mine, 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.
