April 15th, 2008
Vancouver, BC, April 15, 2008 - Dynasty Metals & Mining Inc. (TSX: DMM, “Dynasty” or the “Company”) has entered into a revised agreement with SBI Skin Biology Incorporated (“SBI”), to sell the core concessions of its Copper Duke gold/copper project to SBI. The revised agreement replaces the agreement previously announced by the Company on May 23, 2007 and is conditional upon, among other things, SBI obtaining all necessary regulatory approval and SBI completing a concurrent financing.
Under the terms of the revised agreement, SBI will now issue to the Company 58 million common shares and raise $6 million by way of private placement of 15 million common shares at $0.40 each. The other terms of the agreement announced on May 23, 2007 remain unchanged. As a consequence, upon closing, the Company will still own approximately 60% of the issued and outstanding shares of SBI and will have the right to nominate a majority of the SBI Board of Directors.
Company President, Rob Washer, commented: “We are pleased to be moving forward with SBI and wish to thank Ian Telfer and other SBI representatives for their continued enthusiasm for the project. Upon completion, we will be positioned to fast track our exploration plans at Copper Duke.”
