Dynacor Provides Construction Progress Update on Plant Expansion Enabling 43% Increase in Nameplate Ore-Processing Capacity and Announces First-Quarter 2021 Financial Results Release Date
MONTREAL, May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (TSX-DNG) (Dynacor or the “Corporation”), an international gold ore industrial corporation servicing ASMs (artisanal and small-scale miners), is pleased to provide a construction progress update on its plant capacity increase at Chala, Peru. The new plant expansion, which is on schedule, will enable a 43% nameplate increase in ore processing capacity, improve cost efficiencies, increase production, create jobs and elevate Dynacor as Peru’s largest ASM gold ore purchaser and processer.
The expansion nearing completion will permit Dynacor to maintain its industry-leading gold recovery rate and boost processing volumes to 430 tonnes per day (TPD). Due to a significant rise in ore supply over the last number of months, Dynacor has been steadily growing its throughput levels from its nameplate capacity of 300 TPD. As of today, the plant is operating at its maximum rate of 345 TPD. The construction, which began in March, is progressing as planned and will be complete in June 2021.
The concrete pads allowing placement of the new agitation tank and the ball mill are complete. The construction crew is assembling the agitation tank and, within the coming weeks, will be installing the new ball mill. The Corporation is pleased to announce it is within the initial budget set at US$1.8 million. In addition, Dynacor is working on building more concrete pads for excess mineral deliveries and widening the roadworks to the crushing station.

Dynacor will publish its first-quarter 2021 financial results news release on Monday, May 17th, 2021, before the market opens.
