MONTREAL, February 21, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dynacor Group Inc. (TSX-DNG) (Dynacor or the “Corporation”), an international gold ore industrial corporation servicing ASMs (artisanal and small-scale miners), today announced that it had recorded un-audited gold sales of US$8.6 million (C$11.5 million) (1) for January 2023, compared to US$14.7 million (C$18.6 million) in January 2022. The plant processed nearly 15,000 tonnes of ore in January, operating at its full capacity of 500 tpd.
Due to the political unrest in January, including protests and roadblocks in the southern part of Peru, the Corporation decided to postpone exports since January 16 for safety measures. However, as roads steadily re-opened, the Corporation resumed exports in early February, including selling January’s second-half gold production.
In January, the average selling price of gold was US$1,883 per ounce, compared to US$1,807 per ounce last year.
Dynacor Successfully Obtains Release of 2019 Retained Gold Bars
Dynacor announced today that the Peruvian authorities had released the remaining two gold bars retained for control procedures since December 2019. Accordingly, the Corporation received the gold bars on February 2nd and immediately proceeded to export and sell them.
The Corporation remains committed to conducting its operations with the highest compliance standards and fully cooperating with regulatory authorities.
The two released gold bars totalled 1,030 ounces, and their exportation and sale will contribute positively to the Corporation’s Q1-2023 financial results. Dynacor will continue to focus on creating long-term value for its shareholders while maintaining its commitment to sustainable and responsible practices in all its operations.
