Vancouver, Canada - Tinka Resources Limited (the “Company”), (TSXV - TK; Frankfurt - TLD; Pinksheets
-TKRFF), announces that the Company has completed a second induced polarization (IP) survey on the Ayawilca zone at the Company’s 100 percent-owned Colquipucro project, west-central Peru.

As a result of recent drilling at the Ayawilca zone, which showed a direct correlation between sulphide mineralization in holes 52B, 53 and an extensive 3-D inversion IP anomaly, the Company has extended the area covered by the 2010 IP survey further to the east and south (see press release dated August 24, 2010). Twelve and one half line-kilometres of detailed geophysical recordings were collected testing a series of parallel, east- west fault structures along which the 3-D anomaly and sphalerite/pyrite mineralization occur. The data from the IP survey is currently being reviewed and processed by an independent geophysicist in Australia for 3 dimensional modelling; results are expected soon.

Drilling is continuing at Zone 1 to test the northern extension of the NI43-101 compliant silver resource and also at the Ayawilca zone where it is testing the lateral and depth extensions of the 3-D IP anomaly discovered in the 2010 survey.

Tinka Resources invites investors to meet the Company’s representatives at Booth 2937 at the PDAC, located in the south building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, from March 4 to March 7, 2012.

The Company’s Qualified Person, John Nebocat (P.Eng.), has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.
