Dynacor Produces 20,610 Ounces of Gold in Q2-2018
MONTREAL, July 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (TSX:DNG) (OTC:DNGDF) (Dynacor or the Corporation) is pleased to report its June 2018 and Q2-2018 gold production.
In June 2018, the Corporation produced 6,733oz of gold at its Veta Dorada plant(see Figure 1) while its plant operated at an average daily processing rate of 278 tonnes per day.
For the second quarter of 2018, gold production amounted to 20,610oz, slightly below management’s forecast of 22,150 oz due mainly to lower grade material provided to the plant. However, this total production represents an increase of 13.3 % over the same period of last year (18,188 oz) and an increase of 17.6 % compared to 2016 (17,524 oz).
The Veta Dorada plant processed 7,909 dry metric tonnes (DMT) of material in June and a cumulative 23,172 DMT in the second quarter of 2018 compared to 6,012 DMT and a cumulative 16,311 DMT in the same periods last year, representing an increase of 31.6% and 42.0% respectively.
Historically, production in the 3rd and 4th quarters has always been higher than in the first and second quarters of each year. For instance in 2017, production in Q3 was 20,521oz and in Q4 reached 24,066oz whereas in the first and 2nd quarters production was 17,122 and 18,188, respectively. The Corporation is continuing to ramp up production on a quarterly basis with forecast of 23,900 ounces of gold in the third quarter 2018, on its way to its annual production guidance of 90-94,000 ounces.
