Gold Ore Processing Agreement Signed

Gold Ore Processing Agreement Signed 
HENDERSON, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/13 --  Tara Minerals Corp.
(OTCQB: TARM) (BERLIN: 6T3) is pleased to announce that it has signed
an agreement with Rock Solid Investments, an independent mill owner
and operator, to process the gold ore recovered from Tara's Ponderosa
project. Rock Solid owns a fully operational mill located in Denio,
Humboldt County Nevada, capable of processing Tara's ore for the
purpose of recovering precious metals and producing saleable
A recent 3.5 tonne sample from the outcrop portion of the Black
Diamond Vein was assayed by three independent labs. The head grade
assay from this part of the vein consistently returned 0.77 oz/t gold
and 1+ oz/t silver. Flotation and concentrate ICP testing of this
material is currently in progress with an independent third party
certified lab. Tara is working with Rock Solid and other consultants
to optimize the recovery process and install any additional
processing equipment. Tara will pay Rock Solid a flat processing fee
and has incentives in place for the mill operator to increase
recovery rates.  
Mr. Tom Claridge, Senior Mining and Plant Engineer, stated, "Our plan
is to mine the surface outcrops while we drill and delineate the
underground extensions. Outsourcing the processing at this time
allows us to focus on defining the resource for underground
development. To date, the veins have been easy to follow on the
surface, have the potential for large tonnage, and are showing
consistent grades. We are also well advanced in our mine permitting
process and have community support for the project. As an example of
the potential for this mining district, Midas Gold Corp. to the south
recently attracted investments of $15 million from Franco-Nevada
Corporation and $9.8 million from Teck Resources Limited." 
The Ponderosa Project consists of 6,721 acres of both patented and
unpatented mining claims in central Idaho, USA. The optioned claims
include previously mined veins with historic sampling of the exposed
outcrops averaging 0.5 oz/t gold.
