PI Financial has issued a corporate update on Timmins Gold, which trades of the Toronto Stock Exchange, under the symbol TMM.

Following results from the company’s ongoing drill program at its San Francisco Mine in Sonora State, Mexico, analyst Philip Ker reiterated his buy recommendation, giving a $3.05 target price, a 25% premium to the $2.44 price the day the report was issued.

The company announced gold intersect highlights (show numbers as a slide) of 72 metres of 1.6 grams per tonne, 15 metres of 4.2 grams per tonne, and 14 metres of 3.2 grams per tonne at the San Francisco Pit.

The San Francisco Gold Mine, Timmins Gold’s flagship property, is comprised of two pits (slide 11), the larger San Francisco Pit and La Chicharra Pit, located approximately 1.5 kilometres to the west.

A total of 28,000 metres in 125 holes were drilled (picture page 8) inside, beneath and directly around the San Francisco Pit.

Drilling was designed as infill drilling to both fill in voids (slide 12) in the block model and convert existing previously drilled inferred ounces into the measured and indicated categories.

Philip Ker stated, “We expect an increase of confidence of resources and reserves at San Francisco as a result of the abundant drilling completed since the last mine plan in November 2011”

The company produced 94,444 ounces of gold (crop picture slide 1) in 2012 from its open-pit heap leach operation.

Presently, management is aggressively expanding its crushing circuit in order to bring throughput up to 30,000 tonnes per day, and begin targeting 125,000 to 130,000 ounces of gold production.

Philip Ker stated, “We expect Timmins to achieve over 30% growth to its production profile in 2013 and delivery of successful and expanding operational results remain the key catalyst going forward.”

Timmins currently trades at $2.33, and with 144 million shares outstanding, the company is capitalized at $336 million.
