MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Jan 29, 2014) - Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (DNG.TO)(DNGDF) (Dynacor or the Corporation). Government authorities and the Customs Agency in an effort to crack down on illegal mining and illegal gold exports from Peru have reinforced the inspection process at the ports and airports that are used for the export of gold and now require much more detailed information than previously. This has created a rather confused situation which the Corporation expects will be clarified by the authorities shortly.
Dynacor has, consequently, temporarily and voluntarily decided to suspend gold ore purchases from its suppliers. The Huanca gold ore processing plant will however continue operating at its full capacity using stockpiled ore for the next 3 weeks.
Dynacor is one of the leading gold ore processing companies in Peru and only purchases gold ore from Government registered suppliers and complies with all Government regulations at all steps of its gold and silver processing operations. Dynacor´s compliance department is currently working to get all the newly required information ready for the authorities.
As soon as the Peruvian authorities have reviewed and approved this additional information, Dynacor will resume its gold exports and ore purchases on a normal daily basis.
The Corporation will keep its shareholders informed and will update the market of any new developments as soon as possible.
