Dynacor Discovers New Manto Structure and Receives Additional High Grade Gold Assays at Tumipampa, Peru
MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Oct. 15, 2015) – Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (TSX:DNG)(OTC:DNGDF) (Dynacor or the Corporation) is pleased to announce new results from its underground exploration campaign at Tumipampa. The results have confirmed both to the NW and to the NE of the Manto Dorado the presence of significant high grade gold and copper mineralization.
- Manto Dorado: Assay results have been received from an ongoing sampling program where previously channel samples from the Manto Dorado roof assayed an average of 36.48 g/t Au over 4.85 meters. Additional channel samples were taken in a new 19-meter long drift (Drift #190SW) and returned an average grade of 8.5 g/t Au over an average width of 1.35 m (including a channel sample grading 23.46 g/t Au);
- Manto Nelly (A newly discovered mineralized structure): An 18-meter Drift # 190NW was excavated into the Manto and channel sampled revealing, an average grade of 4.8 g/t Au including a channel sample grading 12.51 g/t Au. 5.08 oz/t Ag and 2.32% Cu over 1.20 m;
- Manto Nazareno: Raise #900 was extended for an additional 16 meters and channel sampled. Raise #900 now has a total length of 31 meters and an average gold grade of 8.87 g/t and 0.59 % copper;
- Lisa vein: Excavation of a Raise #905 in the Lisa vein is underway. The raise is being excavated upwards from a 5-meter segment of Drift #910SW in the Lisa vein that had an average grade of 16.11 g/t gold over 1.94 meters including 55.60 g/t Au (uncut assay) over 0.90 m (see Press Release May 7. 2015).
The complete results for the Manto Dorado (Drift #190SW) are given in Table 1. the Manto Nelly (Drift #190NW) in Table 2 and for Manto Nazareno (Raise #900) in Table 3. Figures 1 and 2 give a composite view of level 350 showing the location of the mineralized Mantos as well as Drifts #190SW and #190NW and Raise #900 and Raise #905. All the reported channel sample and structure widths are true widths.
From the 170-meter mark along cross-cut 330NW a 125-meter long by-pass gallery was excavated in order to reach the rich mineralization found in the Manto Dorado intercepted by drill hole HDD07-2015 grading 10.21 g/t Au over 3.69 m and the Manto Dorado split grading 3.99 g/t Au over 2.70 m (Press Release July 16. 2015).
From the end of the by-pass a 19-meter long drift (Drift #190SW) was excavated into the Manto Dorado and 15 channel samples returned an average grade of 8.50 g/t Au. 1.95 oz/t Ag and 0.80% Cu over an average width of 1.35 m. including a channel sample grading 23.46 g/t Au. 1.25 oz/t Ag and 1.70% Cu over a width of 0.70 m (see Table 1 and Figure 1).
At the very end of Drift 190SW. a new mineralized structure was discovered (Manto Nelly) which is orientated N49°W. An 18-meter long drift (Drift #190SW) was excavated along Manto Nelly and channel sampling returned an average grade of 4.80 g/t Au. 1.46 oz/t Ag and 0.80% Cu over an average width of 1.50 m. including a channel sample grading 12.51 g/t Au. 5.08 oz/t Ag and 2.32% Cu over a width of 1.20 m (Table 2 and Figure 1).
In the Manto Nazareno, Raise #900 was further extended by an additional 16 meters since very positive gold and copper assays had been obtained in the first 15-meter segment which found an average grade of 12.14 g/t Au. 0.49 oz/t Ag and 0.80 % Cu with an average width of 1.44 meters. Very high grade channel samples included 118 g/t Au and 1.39 % Cu over 0.4 meters. 101 g/t Au and 0.69 % Cu over 0.45 m. and 6.35 g/t Au and 3.75 % Cu over 0.45 meters (for the full set of data refer to Press Release dated September 3. 2015).
Channel sampling in the additional 16-meter segment returned an average of 6.47 g/t Au. 0.32 oz/t Ag and 0.45% Cu. including a channel sample grading 25.80 g/t Au. 0.32 oz/t Ag and 0.03% Cu over 1.30 m (Table 3 and Figure 2).
All told thirty-two channel samples from 14 sampling sites were analysed along Raise #900 and the averaged results are given in Table 3. Over its entire 31-meters Raise #900 has an average gold grade of 8.87 g/t and 0.59 % copper over an average width of 1.46 meters.
To conclude, Alonso Sanchez, Dynacor’s Chief Geologist recently commented “Our exploration results have clearly demonstrated the presence of high grade gold and copper mineralization in the SW and the NE extensions of the Manto Dorado. To the SW. Drill hole HDD07-15 led to the discovery of the Manto Raquel and a split of the Manto Dorado (see press release 16th of July 2015) as well as a an area of significant gold mineralization. These results have now been confirmed by the results obtained in Drift #190SW and the discovery of the Manto Nelly. To the NE. the spectacular results obtained in Raise #215 and Drift #190NE (see Press Release dated October 8. 2015 and December 19. 2013) also confirm very significant gold mineralization in the NE extension of the Manto Dorado. All told these results are very promising and Dynacor will continue to explore these areas by the excavation of additional drifts and raises during the coming months.”
Sample Analysis and QA/QC procedures
The samples are sent to the internationally certified laboratory Certimin S.A. for analysis. Samples were assayed by ICP analysis and FAA gravimetric finish assay methods, Standards. blanks and duplicates are used in the sampling process as part of the QA/QC which is implemented and followed by Alonso Sanchez.
