SUMMARY OF FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER AND FISCAL YEAR 2007
Revenue generated from the sale of gold is $6,501,288 for the three-month period ended December 31, 2007. Revenue generated from the sale of gold for the eight-month period ended December 31, 2007 is $14,264,805 (eight months of activities are included since the acquisition of Minera Dynacor del Per� S.A.C).
Net earnings of $243,000 for the three-month period ended December 31, 2007. For the eight-month period ended December 31, 2007, Dynacor reports gross earnings of $1,155,946, and net earnings of $386,358.
Gold production at the Acari plant, acquired on May 1st, 2007, reached a record level of 25,789 ounces for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2007 (the plant produced 14,312 ounces for the same period in 2006).
Gold sales deriving from custom milling, at the Acari plant, reached a record level of 19,322 ounces for the twelve-month period (eight months of activities are included since the acquisition of Minera Dynacor del Per� S.A.C).
The average sale price was US$694 per ounce for the twelve-month period. Cost of sales per ounce of gold was US$642. The gross margin deriving from gold production for Q4 2007 was $541,000 for the three-month period, and $1,155,946 for the eight-month period.
Working capital at December 31, 2007 was $4,325,391.
The Company expects to process over 30,000 ounces of gold, through its custom milling operation, in 2008. The installation of new equipment, in order to facilitate this increase, has already begun. The Company expects to generate enough cash flow from operations at Acari, to fund all of its current exploration program, eliminating the need to finance such activities.
In November of 2007, Phase I of a two part diamond drilling campaign began. This first phase totals 3,000 meters of drilling, to be completed within a targeted seven months time frame. Thus far, three holes have been drilled. The results obtained were very encouraging as they demonstrated the continuity of, and moreover the importance of two identified structures, namely the Vein 1 and Manto Dorado.
The next several drill holes are to target the Manto Dorado in order to verify the continuity of the mineral
ization within this very significant structure. Based on the results obtained from these holes, further drilling will test the Manto Dorado's extension at depth. The entire drilling program, totaling 11,000 meters is planned to take course over a period of 24 months.
The main objective of the drilling campaign is to explore and characterize 10 target structures that have been uncovered by a surface geological survey in 2006-2007 as well by earlier exploration work and a drilling campaign in 2002-2003.
This third property hosts a disseminated type, epithermal gold deposit. Results taken from past surface grab samples, and from outcrops returned grades between 0.5 to 1.5 g/t Au. In 2008, the Company intends to complete surface exploration on Casaden. Once having identified promising targets, the Company plans to begin a drilling program.
