MONTREAL, Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (TSX-DNG) (Dynacor or the “Corporation”), an international gold ore industrial corporation servicing ASMs (artisanal and small-scale miners), today announced US$16.1 million (unaudited) (C$20.5 million) in sales for January 2021. Dynacor’s January gold ore purchases increased by 39.2% year over year to a total of 9,931 tonnes (7,136 tonnes in January 2020).
The strong monthly sales are due to the Corporation purchasing and processing a best-ever January total of gold ore combined with a modest rise in the average grade and a healthy gold price market. The average selling price of gold per ounce in January was US$1,847oz.
The Corporation’s gold and silver sales for January 2021 of US$16.1 million (C$20.5 million) represent a 16.7% month over month increase from December 2020 (US$13.8 million) (unaudited) (C$17.7 million).
The Veta Dorada plant’s throughput started the year at 340 tpd (tonnes per day), an all-time best for January.
