Torex Announces a Temporary Suspension of Activities at its El Limon-Guajes Mine Due to an Illegal Blockade

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – April 4, 2016) – Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Torex”) (TSX:TXG) announced that it is suspending operations at its El Limon-Guajes Mine (ELG) until further notice due to an illegal blockade initiated by three families demanding unjustified payments for purported environmental damages. This attempt to damage the Company’s reputation through unsubstantiated claims can be easily refuted with environment monitoring data and the Company will not succumb to this sort of tactic by making the demanded payments. We prefer to suspend operations until the authorities re-establish law and order.
