VANCOUVER, Jan. 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Tinka Resources Limited (the "Company"), (TSXV - TK; Frankfurt - TLD; Pinksheets -TKRFF), announces the start of a third induced polarization (IP) survey at the Company's Ayawilca project, west-central Peru. The two previous surveys defined extensive chargeability anomalies over a distance of 1,200 m east-west by up to 800 m north-south, along the eastern margin of the surveys. The chargeability becomes stronger towards the east and remains open in this direction. A further 8 line-km of surveying will be done over favourable geology that extends eastward from the existing anomalies, a distance of at least 600 m.

Satellite imagery indicates that many of the chargeability anomalies coincide with large fault fractures that underlie Ayawilca, and drilling has confirmed that these anomalies are caused by sulphide mineralization. Potentially economic zinc mineralization has been encountered in drill holes over a distance of 600 m east-west.

In addition to the survey being conducted at Ayawilca, approximately 10 km of IP will be performed at the Chaucha showing located 2.5 km to the north. Chaucha is a gossanous clinker found within Pucara limestone sitting on top of conglomerates of the Permian Mitu group. The oxidized showing is in the hanging wall side of a large fault, and the footwall side of the fault is underlain by a thick sequence of limestone. This reconnaissance IP survey will attempt to find this same mineralized horizon on the other side of the fault.

The qualified person for the Company's projects, Mr. John Nebocat (P.Eng.), V.P. of Exploration for the Company, has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.
