Advisory Committee Appointment
Jean Martineau, President and CEO, states: “First, on my behalf and behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Eddy Canova for his helpful contributions and guidance throughout his tenure as a director over the last twelve years. Second, he was instrumental in advancing our surface and underground developments at our gold project, Tumipampa, and his in the field analysis of our new ASM developments in Senegal. Finally, while we will all miss his absence from the Board, we are pleased that Eddy will continue to play an important role in Dynacor by joining our advisory committee.”
Mr. Canova’s 42 years of global experience, his fluency in four languages (English, French, Spanish and Portuguese), his expertise in the mineral exploration and gold mining industry working throughout West Africa and the Americas give him the knowledge needed to advise Dynacor in its upcoming drill campaign at Tumipampa and other new ASM gold ore-processing opportunities.
The advisory committee’s role is to provide valuable operational, geological and business recommendations, along with strategic advice in decision-making, as Dynacor advances its core business of ASM gold ore-processing service worldwide and the upcoming drill testing of its Tumipampa exploration gold project.
Dynacor is a dividend-paying industrial gold ore processor headquartered in Montreal, Canada. The corporation is engaged in gold production through the processing of ore purchased from the ASM (artisanal and small-scale mining) industry. At present, Dynacor operates in Peru, where its management and processing teams have decades of experience working with ASM miners. It also owns a gold exploration property (Tumipampa) in the Apurimac department.
The corporation intends to expand its processing operations in other jurisdictions as well.
Dynacor produces environmental and socially responsible gold through its PX IMPACT® gold program. A growing number of supportive firms from the fine luxury jewelry, watchmakers and investment sectors pay a small premium to our customer and strategic partner for this PX IMPACT® gold. The premium provides direct investment to develop health and education projects for our artisanal and small-scale miner’s communities.
