(businesspress24) - TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 11/09/17 -- (All amounts expressed in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise stated)

Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Torex") (TSX: TXG) reported today the Company''s financial results for the third quarter of 2017, as ramp-up continues at its El Limon Guajes Mine (ELG) in southwest Mexico. The Company also provided the following update to the previously announced blockade situation at ELG.

Blockade Update:

Fred Stanford, President & CEO of Torex stated: "The current blockade situation overshadows the many successes that the team has accomplished in 2017. These include, ramping up the plant to 90% of design throughput. Achieving design recoveries. Building the SART plant and installing additional tailings filtration capacity. Developing into the Sub-Sill deposit and producing the first development ore in less than a year from the discovery hole. Advancing the Media Luna design, successfully concluding negotiations for long term Media Luna land leases, and beginning the in-fill drill program for Media Luna. On the financial side the project finance debt was renegotiated with improved terms and flexibility for future growth. While it is impossible to be definitive, we expect the blockade to be resolved in the near term and we can then continue to build on the successes of 2017, as we transition into what should be a catalyst rich, and steady state 2018."

This release should be read in conjunction with the Company''s third quarter 2017 Financial Statements and MD&A on the Company''s website or on SEDAR.
