Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (TSX:DNG) (OTC:DNGDF) (Dynacor or the Corporation) is pleased to announce sampling results of a raise excavated in the Manto Dorado on the Tumipampa project, Peru.
Channel sampling in a raise within the Manto Dorado has exposed a massive (35 meters) high-grade gold-bearing band of copper sulphides. A further 60 meters of excavation of this highly mineralized raise is underway in order to reach the surface. To date, 35 meters have been excavated and the raise (#215) has an average gold grade of 27.3 g/t (0.88 oz/t) and 2.19% copper and an average width of 1.2 meters. The results include twelve (12) channel samples with uncut gold assays between 31.1 g/t (1 oz/t) and 76.2 g/t (2.45 oz/t) and including fifteen (15) channel samples with uncut copper assays between 2% and 8.7%. (see Figures 1 and 2).
Jean Martineau, Dynacor’s President and CEO has stated “We are very happy to see the assays demonstrate the rich grades of gold and copper in this latest set of results from the Manto Dorado. Additional underground exploration results are pending and will be published as soon as they are ready. Thereafter, we are planning to test run at the Huanca-Metalex plant a large bulk sample of approximately 1,500 metric tonnes of mineralized material from Tumipampa.”
Raise-215 was excavated from the 27.5-meter mark along a 45-meter drift (Drift-190NE) orientated N45°E that was excavated in the Manto Dorado structure. The first 26.0 m of the Drift-190E returned high gold grades of 27.8 g/t Au and 1.69% Cu over a width of 1.5 m. Raise-215 was excavated in two steps. Six (6) meters in 2013 which returned an average grade of 21.6 g/t Au, and 2.14% Cu over an average width of 1.01 m (see press release dated December 19, 2013) and was recently extended a further twenty-nine (29) meters in 2015 adding up to a total of 35 meters (see Figure 3).
All told thirty-seven channel samples were analysed along Raise-215 and the detailed results are given in Table 1. Raise-215 has an average gold grade of 27.3 g/t (0.88 oz/t) and 2.19% copper over 35 meters with an average width of 1.2 meters. Certain channel samples had very high grades of up to 76.2 g/t Au (2.45 oz/t) and 8.7% copper (see Photo 1, below). Two graphs showing the gold and copper grades along the entire 35-meter raise are given in Figure 1 and 2 above.
Sample Analysis and QA/QC procedures
The samples are sent to the internationally certified laboratory Certimin S.A. for analysis. Standards, blanks and duplicates are used in the sampling process as part of the QA/QC that is implemented and followed by Alonso Sanchez, Chief Geologist for Dynacor Gold Mines, B.Eng.
