Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (TSX:DNG)(OTC:DNGDF) (Dynacor or the Corporation) is pleased to release a 2nd progress report on the construction of its new 300-tonne per day ore processing plant located in Chala, Southern Peru.

Installation of the seven (7) cyanidation tanks on their bases (see photo below) as well as the two (2) primary ore crushers and three (3) conical ore crushers is moving forward quickly and should be completed by the end of January 2016. Ore transport conveyor belts will be installed as soon as possible thereafter.
Work on the ore storage area and the tailings pond is underway and should be completed by the end of January 2016. Building of the laboratory and the desorption plant has begun and is scheduled to be finished in February 2016.
The Corporation has a Quality Assurance and Quality Control program (QA/QC) that systematically monitors and tests every step of the construction process in order to avoid any surprises later on. For instance, quality control tests are performed to determine concrete resistance parameters and all the welding is independently inspected.
The work on the plant is moving forward at a satisfactory pace and construction activities will continue throughout the Christmas and New Year holiday season.
