In Peru, as a Director of Gold Hawk Resources he was involved in the acquisition and reactivation of the Cobre San Juan base metal mine located in San Mateo (later sold to Nystar a Dutch Company).
Jean Depatie has served many public companies at the highest levels: CEO, President and Chairman of the Board. He has also been actively involved in exploration and economic geology, both as an independent consultant and as a senior officer; for instance he was Vice-President Exploration for SNC Lavalin for 7 years. He has a very extensive international experience and has worked in more than 20 countries.
He received the 1990 Prix d’Excellence from Québec Ministry of Mines and Energy for having financed and put into production the most important graphite mine in North America.

He is a former President of the Association professionnelle des géologues et des géophysiciens du Québec.
The Board and Dynacor’s senior management are looking forward to working with Jean Depatie as Dynacor continues to grow and create value for its shareholders over the next few years.
Jean Depatie after recently visiting Dynacor’s operations in Peru stated “I am very impressed with both Dynacor’s ore processing business and its amazing gold Tumipampa project. I believe that Dynacor’s business model whereby exploration is self-financed by profits generated from ore processing is very original and generates value for its shareholders. I am really very pleased to join Dynacor’s Board at this pivotal time in the Corporation’s growth”

The Corporation recently obtained its permit to construct a brand new 300 tpd mill in Chala Peru. This represents an important milestone for the Corporation’s future growth. The Corporation’s strength and competitive advantage comes with the experience and knowledge it has developed while working in Peru.
