TSXV - TK; Frankfurt - TLD; Pinksheets - TKRFF

VANCOUVER, Feb. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - Tinka Resources Limited (the "Company"), (TSXV - TK; Frankfurt - TLD; Pinksheets -TKRFF), announces that the Company has commenced 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 hole 52B and an extensive 3-D inversion IP anomaly, the Company is extending the area covered by the 2010 IP survey further to the east and south (see press release dated August 24, 2010). The new survey will incorporate approximately 12.5 line-kilometres and will test a series of parallel, east-west fault structures along which the 3-D anomaly and sphalerite/pyrite mineralization occur.

The Company's drill contractor has mobilized a larger diamond drill rig to the site and the rig is now testing the lateral and depth extensions of the 3-D IP anomaly and mineralization intersected by previous drilling. Results will be released when they are available.

Drilling is continuing at Zone 1 to test the northern extension of the NI43-101 compliant silver resource.

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

On behalf of the Board,
