Geophysics Identifies High Chargeability Anomalies At Colquipucro

    Tinka Resources Limited (TSXv - TK; Frankfurt -9TLD (WKN A0B 884);
    Pinksheets - TKRFF)

    VANCOUVER, March 1 /CNW/ - Mr. Andrew Carter, President, is pleased to
announce that the Company has received a report on the induced polarization
(IP) survey undertaken on the Company's Colquipucro project, west-central
Peru. The pole-dipole survey consisted of 10 lines totalling 8 km in length.
The inversion model of the IP data has produced a zone of high chargeabilities
from surface to a depth of greater than 150m over an area roughly 400m
east-west by 700m north-south. Some of the chargeability conductors correlate
with the strongly mineralized zones in the 3870 level adit while others can be
related to mineralized zones found in the surface trenches.
    Previous sampling along the adit identified that the banded sandstone
host rock is strongly mineralized in part. There were significant intercepts,
and sampling returned results such as 25m of 171 g/t silver and 8m of 253 g/t
silver (see press release November 6 2006). At surface, channel sampling
returned results such as 8m of 145 g/t silver, 10m of 130 g/t silver and 17m
of 88 g/t silver (see press release November 21 2006).
    Mr Carter says "We now have all information from the Colquipucro project
in hand, and are particularly pleased with the degree of correlation between
the areas of known surface mineralization and the chargeability anomalies. The
IP results will assist in identifying drill targets both associated with, and
outside of, the known mineralization. Several of these targets will be at
depth below the area of previous mining. We look forward to getting a drill
rig onto site once permitting and access has been completed."
    The Company is currently constructing an access road to the top of the
Zone 1 hill in preparation for a diamond drilling program scheduled to
commence as soon as the permit is received.
    The Company's Qualified Person, John Nebocat (P.Eng.), has reviewed and
approved the contents of this press release.

    On behalf of the Board,
