Dynacor Produces 17,125 oz of Gold in Q1-2017

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 04/20/17 -- Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (TSX:DNG) (OTC:DNGDF) (Dynacor or the Corporation) is pleased to report that its 1st quarter gold production reached 17,125 oz. This represents an increase of 1,318 ounces of gold, as compared to Q1-2016 (15,807 oz), despite the extreme weather conditions in northern and central Peru which has led to the destruction of many bridges and roads and localized severe flooding.

Total gold exported during Q1-2017 was 20,301 oz.

Monthly gold production data in 2017 and 2016 for the first quarter are presented in the Table 1 below. As compared to 2016, gold production was higher in January (+15%) and reached an all-time high for a month of February (+31%) but due to the extreme weather and its impact, production was lower in March (-16%). Nevertheless, total quarterly gold production increased by 8.3% (1,318 oz).

Dynacor's quarterly gold production is generally lower in the first quarter of any given year due to the rainy season from January to March which slows artisanal mining activity and ore transport to the processing plant (see Table 2, below for the years 2012-2016).

Jean Martineau, Dynacor's CEO and President commented "Despite the worst rainy season in the last 20 years in Peru, we have achieved solid operational results since as compared to the 1st quarter of 2016 we have managed to increase not only our gold production but also our ore purchases by 15% and processed ore by 24%. This clearly shows the impact of our new plant. I would like to congratulate all of our employees for this excellent result which is opening the way for future success in the coming quarters".

Dynacor's new 300 tpd Veta Dorada plant is targeting 88-92,000 ounces of gold production in 2017, a 20-25% increase as compared to 2016.
