TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 27, 2014) - Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Torex") (TSX:TXG)(TSX:TXG.WT) announces the results of its 2014 annual and special meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting") held in Toronto, Ontario on June 26, 2014.

At the Meeting, all director nominees listed in the Company's management information circular dated May 14, 2014 were elected as directors of the Company. The detailed results of the vote by ballot are as follows:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Director Vote Type Number of Votes Percentage of Votes ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- For 573,469,556 99.99% Fred Stanford Withheld 52,700 0.01% ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- For 544,438,056 94.93% Michael Murphy Withheld 29,084,200 5.07% ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- For 564,990,362 98.51% A.

In addition, at the Meeting, shareholders reappointed KPMG LLP, Chartered Accountants ("KPMG"), as auditors of the Company, and ratified and confirmed the adoption of the Company's shareholder rights plan.

The Company believes that the number of votes withheld from voting for certain of the director nominees that form the Company's audit committee result from a report issued by Glass Lewis & Co. ("Glass Lewis"), a proxy advisory service firm. The report recommended that votes be withheld for nominee directors that form the Company's audit committee and for the appointment of KPMG as auditors because fees paid to KPMG during 2013 for non-audit related services exceeded fees paid for audit related services. During the year, the Company undertook a number of financing initiatives, certain of which required the Company to retain KPMG to provide services in respect of several non-audit related matters. The Company was not provided with an opportunity to respond to or comment on the Glass Lewis report before it was issued. The Company believes the increase in non-audit related fees paid to KPMG in 2013 was justified and necessary, and is confident that had it been afforded an opportunity to respond to the report before it was issued, the fees in question would not be seen as being excessive.

The formal report on voting results with respect to all matters voted upon at the Meeting will be filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
