DYNASTY REPORTS 6,285 OUNCES OF GOLD PRODUCED IN Q3 2015 & PROVIDES OPERATIONS UPDATE

Vancouver, B.C., October 14, 2015 - Dynasty Metals & Mining Inc. ('Dynasty' or the 'Company') (TSX: DMM, OTCQX: DMMIF) reports the production of 6,285 ounces of gold from the Zaruma mine in the third quarter of 2015, nearly doubling gold production in Q2 2015 and a 41% increase in gold production over Q1 of this year. These increases clearly illustrate the production turnaround that management anticipated following the lower production numbers at the time when resources were focused on extending the main decline at the Zaruma mine in southern Ecuador.

The average grade for gold production in Q3 2015 was 6.28g/t Au (representing a mix of approximately 75% resource grade material and 25% lower grade material sourced outside the defined resource), a small grade increase over the previous two quarters. Average gold recovery continued to hold in a steady range at 92.7% and the 6,285 ounces of gold were produced from 33,584 tonnes of material milled, roughly twice the tonnage milled in the second quarter of this year. During the third quarter, 5,447 ounces of gold were sold at an average price of US$1,116 per ounce.

It is important to note that quarterly gold production may not be equal to quarterly gold sales due to the timing of gold pours and delivery of payment.

Table 1 - Zaruma quarterly gold production for the three months ended:

Zaruma Operating Update
For the first three quarters of 2015, Dynasty has concentrated the bulk of its resources - both human and financial - on extending the Cabo des Hornos decline and developing resources deeper in the Zaruma mine below historical workings. At the end of the third quarter, the bulk of the decline work was completed to the 330 level and limited mining began on the Soroche and Matalanga veins. In addition, both the St. Ernest and Tamayo veins have been opened up for development. As of the date of this release, ore is being sourced from six mining faces with the expectation that, with the continued extension of the decline, the number of working faces will increase over several quarters. Current mining is providing approximately 400 tonnes per day comprised of a mix of resource-grade material and material outside the defined resource. This mix of material resulted in a combined grade in the 6.5 to 7.5g/t Au range, somewhat below the resource grade but showing steady increase over the past three quarters. Driving the decline will continue throughout the life of the mine as is required for the Zaruma type of orebody.

Assuming additional mining faces are accessed over the next several quarters as planned, Zaruma is expected to ramp up towards 500 tonnes per day at the start of 2016 and continue to increase tonnage through 2016 and into 2017.

Tailing Management Facility (TMF)
Construction is near completion on the new TMF. Reduced production during Q1 and Q2 of 2015 extended the life of the existing TMF thereby allowing usage throughout the remainder of 2015 and possibly into the first quarter of 2016 as production continues to ramp up at Zaruma. The first stage of the new TMF has been designed to serve for approximately two years at anticipated production rates. The second stage is designed to extend the TMF life by an additional five years, depending on the rate of increase for processing.

Cost Containment Measures
In light of the lower gold price, Dynasty has undertaken a number of measures that will bear out in cost containment and cost savings over the next few quarters. Dynasty has reduced general operating costs and has reduced the workforce at Zaruma by roughly 15 percent, which will not compromise mining rates. This strategic decrease in payroll numbers will not translate into immediate savings due to severance payments but will become actual savings into the fourth quarter of 2015 and thereafter.

'Times continue to be challenging for public gold mining companies in general,' commented CEO Robert Washer. 'Dynasty has weathered challenges in the past and is implementing measures designed to continue improving recovery and production rates while containing all possible costs while this economic environment persists. We are extremely pleased to acknowledge the increased support and higher profile the Ecuadorian government and Ministry of Mines is giving extractive industries in the country and believe all parties are working towards building the success of this industry.'

Brian Speechly, a Fellow of AusIMM (Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy), a director of the Company and a 'qualified person' within the definition of that term in the National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this news release.
