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.

(P.Eng.), V.P. of Exploration for the Company, has reviewed and
