April 18, 2017 Vancouver, BC – Timmins Gold Corp. (TSX: TMM, NYSE MKT: TGD) (“Timmins Gold” or the “Company”) announces that it is proposing to change its name to Alio Gold Inc. at its upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Shareholders. If approved, the Company expects to begin trading on both the TSX and the NYSE MKT under the ticker ALO on Tuesday May 16, 2017. Chief Executive Officer, Greg McCunn, said, “The word Alio in Latin means ‘to go in a different direction’ and is reflective of the important operational and management changes that have been made in 2017. The portfolio of assets we have will form the platform for the growth of Alio Gold into a mid-tier gold producer over the next several years. In the near-term, there are a number of exciting catalysts for Alio Gold including a Prefeasibility Study for our high-grade, high-margin Ana Paula Project and the plan for revitalizing our San Francisco Mine.”
