    MONTREAL, Feb. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. ("Dynacor") is
very pleased to announce the first results from its Tumipampa drilling
campaign that began in November 2007. Three drill holes have been completed,
the first two holes targeted Vein 1 and the third hole the Manto Dorado
structure. These first results are very encouraging since they show the
continuity of, and moreover the importance of the latter two gold-bearing

    Drilling Results

    The first drill hole, HDD-01 intersected Vein 1 at a depth of 44 meters,
over a width of 1.15 meters, and had a gold grade of 20.2 g/t Au. Drill hole
HDD-02 intersected the same vein at a depth of 84.4 meters, over 4.3 meters
and had a gold grade of 0.005 g/t Au. In 2003, drilling of Vein 1 had revealed
a gold grade of 7.33 g/t Au over 6.0 meters, at a depth of 16 meters.
    Drill hole HDD-03 targeted the structure known as Manto Dorado. The Manto
was intersected at a depth of 26.1 meters, over a width of 26.12 meters. The
gold grades from this intersect ranged from trace values to 12.8 g/t over
1.4 meters.
    This third drill hole was laid 100 meters north of the Manto's known
outcropping, which was discovered during the construction of an access road to
the Tumipampa property, in 2003. It is worth remembering that this outcropping
has a width of more than 12 meters and gold grades of 6.86 g/t Au over
4.9 meters were found.

    Phase 1 of the 2007-2008 diamond drilling campaign consists of
3,000 meters of drilling over a seven-month period. The main objective of this
campaign is to explore the following structures: Manto Dorado and Veins 1, A,
Z, San Pedro, 2007, and Esperanza. It is important to underline that in an
earlier drilling campaign in 2003, Veins 1, Z, and A showed high gold
mineralization, namely: HDD1 (Vein 1 - 7.33 g/t Au over a 6 meter intercept),
HDD3 (Vein Z -8.20 g/t Au over a 4 meter wide intercept) and HDD6 (Vein A -
12.25 g/t Au with a width of 2 meters).
    The next several drill holes are to target the Manto Dorado in order to
verify the continuity of the mineralization 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.
    Chemical analysis was done by ALS CHEMEX laboratories in Lima and samples
were analysed by the Au-AA23, Au-AA25, Au-SCR21 and ME-ICP61 methods.
