TVI Pacific Inc. Completes 23rd Shipment of Copper Concentrate and 1st Shipment of Zinc Concentrate

August 12, 2011

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/12/11 -- TVI Pacific Inc. (TSX: TVI) (OTCQX: TVIPF) ("TVI" or the "Company") announced today that its Philippine operating affiliate, TVI Resource Development (Phils.), Inc. ("TVIRD"), completed its 23rd shipment of copper concentrate on August 8, 2011, and completed its 1st shipment of zinc concentrate on July 7, 2011.

Copper concentrate shipment:

-- 5,982 dry metric tonnes ("dmt") of concentrate was shipped containing 23.2% copper;

-- Gross revenue of US$16.0 million will be received for the shipment; and

-- Inventory of 1,886 dmt of copper concentrate is currently in storage.

The Company's 23rd shipment of 5,982 dmt of copper concentrate left the port of Santa Maria in Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte, in accordance with the off-take arrangement between TVIRD and MRI Trading AG ("MRI) on August 8, 2011. TVIRD expects to earn gross revenues of approximately US$16.0 million from MRI for this shipment (pending final assay and price adjustments).

Copper production remains steady at Canatuan, achieving copper concentrate grade levels between 23 and 25 percent. It is anticipated that shipments of copper concentrate in Q3 and Q4 will continue every 6-8 weeks.

Zinc concentrate shipment:

The first shipment of 1,381 dmt of zinc concentrate took place on July 7, 2011. The shipment was completed in accordance with the zinc concentrate off-take agreement between TVIRD and MRI.

-- 1,381 dmt of concentrate was shipped containing 51.9% zinc;

-- Gross revenue of US$1.4 million was received for the shipment; and

-- Inventory of 897 dmt of zinc concentrate is currently in storage.

Currently TVI is producing more tonnes of copper concentrate than zinc concentrate on a daily basis. This is a result of:

-- Processing ore that has a higher copper grade than zinc grade;

-- Producing a zinc concentrate containing a higher percentage of zinc metal; and

-- Achieving higher copper recoveries than zinc recoveries due to the current mill process.

Increasing levels of zinc are expected to appear in the orebody as mining operations continue. To accommodate the higher zinc ore, construction has been initiated on additional zinc flotation capacity. This is expected to improve the overall efficiency of zinc recovery and, as a result, concentrate production. Construction is expected to be completed later this year.

Ideally, each future shipment should contain approximately 5,000 dmt of zinc concentrate. Current recoveries dictate it will take longer to produce the targeted amount of zinc concentrate compared to copper concentrate. For this reason, the second shipment is expected in December 2011. The Company anticipates shipments in 2012 to occur every 4-6 months depending on the Zinc Circuit efficiency improvements underway.
