WTM Reports 8.57 g/t Gold Over 9.00 Metres from
Follow-Up Drilling at Thunder Creek

(Vancouver, March 31, 2008) West Timmins Mining Inc. (TSX: WTM) announced today that follow-up drilling on the Company's Thunder Creek Property in Ontario has intersected additional high-grade gold mineralization over significant widths. Drill hole TC07-43 has returned an intercept of 8.57 g/t gold over 9.00 metres, intersecting the Rusk Zone 120 metres down-plunge of previously reported hole TC07-36. �Hole TC07-36 returned 24.61 g/t gold over 7.00 metres (NR07-41, December 4, 2007).

A number of other holes intersecting the Rusk Zone also returned high grade gold assays including 27.21 g/t gold over 0.90 metres, 8.52 g/t gold over 2.05 metres and 6.33 g/t gold over 2.60 metres. Drilling also intersected new zones of gold mineralization in the hanging wall volcanic rocks and in the footwall to the Rusk Zone (see table below). The Rusk Zone remains open down-plunge. Ongoing drilling will continue to target extensions of the Rusk Zone and the newly identified zones of gold mineralization.


"The latest results from the Thunder Creek Property significantly extend the high-grade Rusk Gold Zone," said Darin Wagner, President and CEO of West Timmins Mining. "The Rusk Zone continues to demonstrate excellent grade and thickness. The discovery of additional zones of gold mineralization in the hanging wall and footwall to the Rusk Zone further demonstrates the exploration potential of this property."

The new intersections are located approximately 800 metres southwest of the Timmins West shaft currently being developed by partner Lake Shore Gold (TSX:LSG). According to Lake Shore's President Tony Makuch, "These intersections represent a new dimension to the Thunder Creek Property. The potential of this new mineralization could significantly impact Lake Shore's development plans, as they may be accessible from the Timmins West shaft with minimum additional capital expenses."

During the fourth quarter of 2007, project operator Lake Shore Gold Corp. advised WTM they had completed the expenditure requirements to vest a 60% interest in the Thunder Creek Property. WTM and Lake Shore will now form a joint venture to move the Thunder Creek Project forward with all future work funded on a pro-rata 60/40 basis (Lake Shore/WTM).

Quality Control

As the operator, Lake Shore Gold has a quality control program to ensure best practices in the sampling and analysis of drill core. Assays have been completed using a standard fire assay with a 30-gram aliquot. For samples returning a value greater than three grams per tonne gold another pulp is taken and fire assayed with a gravimetric finish. Zones with visible gold are tested by pulp metallic analysis. NQ size drill core is saw-cut and half the drill core is sampled in standard intervals. The remaining half of the core is stored in a secure location. The drill core is transported in security-sealed bags for preparation at ALS Chemex Prep Lab in Timmins, Ontario and the pulps shipped to ALS Chemex Assay Laboratory in Vancouver, B.C. ALS Chemex is an ISO 9001-2000 registered laboratory preparing for ISO 17025 certification.

The Qualified Person ("QP") for the Thunder Creek property is Jacques Samson, P.Geo., project geologist for Lake Shore Gold. As QP he has prepared or supervised the preparation of the scientific or technical information contained in this press release.
