This new expansion increases the Company’s Tumipampa concession to 4,842 hectares (48.42 km²). It strategically adjoins it to a large and developing copper/gold resource consisting of 355 million tonnes at 0.62% Copper held by Southern Copper Corp. Notably in the last few months, Southern Copper Corporation similarly increased the size of their Los Chancas claim by staking land eastward to within 2 km of Tumipampa’s border. Dynacor’s new land holdings now closes the gap between the two companies’ assets. Currently all of the land around Tumipampa is claimed by major mining companies such as Southern Copper Corporation, BHP Billiton, Buenaventura, Golden Ideal Gold Mining (China), Super Strong Mining (China), and Bear Creek Mining.
