According to Dynacor, following the company’s January purchase record of 9,931 tonnes, the ore purchase level continues to rise with over 11,248 tonnes purchased in February 2021, a 69.3% year over year increase compared to the 6,642 tonnes in February 2020. The average selling price of gold per ounce in February 2021 was US$1,785.

Monthly sales to date in 2021 of US$28 million (unaudited) for the first two months of the year well on track to exceed management’s 2021 sales guidance of $US150 million.

The company added that the solid start for 2021 enables Dynacor to increase its ore inventory, secure its first-quarter production through the annual rainy season, outpace the plant capacity, and increase work schedule.

The corporation is engaged in gold production through the processing of ore purchased from the ASM (artisanal and small-scale mining) industry. At present, Dynacor operates in Peru, where its management and processing teams have decades of experience working with ASM miners.
