"2013 was another record year for Timmins Gold with production of 120,900 gold equivalent ounces surpassing our guidance of 118,000 ounces. Our strong performance in the fourth quarter was realized through a smooth transition to new leach pads and increased crusher throughput. Expansion construction is now complete for the next year including construction of new leach pads. Our production guidance for 2014 is between 115,000 and 125,000 ounces with cash costs of approximately $800 per ounce. The Company is well positioned to continue to generate good margins and free cash flow at current gold prices."
