Dynacor Gold Mines to Build a $4.5 Million Second Gold-Ore Processing Plant
MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwire – Oct. 24, 2011) – Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (“Dynacor” or the “Company”) (TSX:DNG) is pleased to announce the Board of Directors has approved the development of a new gold processing facility located on the Pan American Highway south of Nazca, Peru. The new state of the art gold processing plant will be built with an initial capacity of 300 tonnes per day and has been designed to be readily upgraded to 430 tonnes per day.
Dynacor has purchased the necessary land directly from the Government and intends to begin building its second gold processing plant in the first semester of 2012, as soon as the necessary environmental permit has been granted and financing secured. The Company has already submitted all the required documentation to obtain the water use permits and the engineering design of the new plant has been completed. As required by Peruvian law, the Company has prepared an environmental impact assessment which will be submitted this week to the relevant authorities as well as all the necessary documentation. This gold processing plant will include all of the Company’s knowhow derived from operating the Acari ore processing facility for the last 12 years.
A budget of $4.5 million has been approved and will be funded through a combination of debt and working capital. When the new 300 tpd capacity facility is operational, the Company will be able to produce approximately 60,000 ounces of gold per year at this plant.
Demand for gold/silver and copper ore processing is continually growing in Peru since there are more than 50,000 artisanal small and medium scale miners in a country that is the 6th largest gold producer in the world. Our new location will support the accessibility of larger long-haul trucks to deliver greater tonnages of ore easily from all over Peru via the Pan American Highway. Furthermore, our new plant will be hooked up to the Peruvian national energy grid which will give us a considerable cost saving as well as decreasing our carbon footprint.
