    MONTREAL, Nov. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. (TSX: DNG) is
pleased to announce that it has signed a drilling contract in order to
commence a diamond drilling campaign at its Tumipampa property in Peru. Phase
I of this campaign will begin in the next few days and will consist of
3,000 meters of drilling, during the next seven 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.
    Phase II of the drilling campaign will consist of a further 8,000 meters
of diamond drilling. The company is confident that the overall 11,000 meters
of drilling will yield sufficient data to determine an economic potential of
the gold mineralization found within the Tumipampa Property.


    The Tumipampa project is located 500 km from the city of Lima, in the
Circa district, Province of Abancay, Department of Apurimac. Dynacor Gold owns
a total of 2,650 hectares which are adjacent to concessions being explored by
the following companies: Meridian Gold, Bear Creek and Southern Peru.
    The area is composed of quartzite and limestone of the Cretaceous, which
contain important epithermal Au deposits intruded by the Apurimac Batholite, a
well known metallotect that is related to many porphyric Cu and Au deposits in
    During 2002 and 2003, a first exploration campaign was carried out in the
NE area of the property, covering 300 hectares. Geophysical, surface
geological and geochemical studies were carried out and a diamond drilling
campaign (16 holes - total of 4,050 meters) was completed. The objective was
to find a Au-Cu disseminated porphyry-type deposit in the quartzite. Results
did not show gold dissemination, but the holes located near the outcrops of
the veins showed significant gold grades. For instance, veins 1, Z, and A were
intersected by drilling and the following gold assays were obtained: diamond
drills HDD1 (7.33 g/t Au across 6 meters), HDD3 (8.20 g/t Au across 4 meters),
and HDD6 (12.25 g/t Au across 2 meters).
    In 2006, a reinterpretation and general review of the project as well as
an initial survey in the field was done on the entire Tumipampa Property
during which new veins were discovered and earlier known veins were further
studied - all told adding up to a total of 10 structures with economical gold
grades. The veins: 1, Z, 2007, San Pedro, Escondida, Esperanza, Porvenir, A, B
and El Manto Dorado were also revealed by the presence of old surface work
done during the colonial period. Channel sample analysis of the latter veins
found grades between 1 and 25 g/t Au. Hydrothermal breccias in quartzite
grading up to 1g/t Au were also identified.
    In addition to the current drilling campaign, the company intends during
2007-2008 to carry out detailed geological mapping as well as geochemical and
geophysical studies of the entire 2650 ha Tumipampa property. The objective of
these studies is to locate possible extensions of the known veins that are
covered by quaternary material, limestone and quartzite.


    Manto Dorado

    This surface structure was discovered when cutting access road for the
2003 drilling campaign. With an average width of 5 meters, this is the
project's most important structure known to date. The access road revealed a
10-meter segment of the 200-meter known length of the structure. Most of the
Manto Dorado(MD) structure appears to be covered by quaternary material. Its
average direction is N30 degrees E and has a 35 degrees NW dip corresponding
to the quartzite stratification. The geological make-up of the MD structure
includes abundant pyrite, grey and white quartz and iron oxide.
    Five channel samples taken every 2 meters from a 10-meter segment where
the access path intersected the MD structure returned very significant gold
and silver grades of gold and silver (see Table 1, below).

    Sample           Width (meters)            Au (g/t)             Ag (g/t)
    55763                     1.10                4.11                 13.9

    Vein A

    This vein is another important structure found close to the Manto Dorado.
The presence of old surface workings dating back to the Spanish colonial
period can be readily observed over a total distance of 200 meters. The scale
of these historical mining activities is indicative of the richness of this
vein. For instance, analyses of samples taken from an old ore stockpile
returned a grade of 12.70 g/t Au. Interestingly, Vein A was also intercepted
by the diamond drill hole HDD6 (in 2003) at a depth of 60 meters and had a
grade of 12.25 g/t Au across a 2-meter intercept.


    Gold production reached a record level in the 3rd Quarter, during which
the Acari Gold Mill produced 7,477 ounces of gold, which as compared the
production of 3,200 ounces in Q3-2006, represents an increase of 133%. In the
nine-month period ending on the 30th of September 2007, the Acari Mill had
produced 16,922 ounces of gold as compared to 8,601 ounces of gold in the
comparable period in 2006, representing an increase of 96.7%.
    Furthermore, Dynacor Gold has begun the construction of a second custom
ore processing plant at Acari. This new mill, equipped with flotation units,
will process copper, gold, and silver ores, which are abundant in the area.
With this extension of the company's custom ore processing capacity, Dynacor
Gold should be able to substantially increase its income stream in 2008.


    Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. is a gold exploration and mining company, that
has been active in Peru since 1996. The Company's assets include the Acari,
Casaden and Tumipampa exploration properties. Moreover, Dynacor Gold owns 100%
