New Concessions Added At Copper Duke In Dynasty Copper-Gold Belt
January 24th, 2005
Vancouver, BC, January 24, 2005 - Dynasty Metals & Mining Inc. (TSXV:DMM, the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of new mineral concessions covering an area of 10.25 km2, adjacent to the Company’s Copper Duke porphyry target, within the Dynasty Copper-Gold Belt, in southern Ecuador. The Copper Duke system now measures 10 km x 5 km.
Copper Duke is one of six copper-gold porphyry-style systems that the Company has identified within its Dynasty Copper-Gold Belt, a 90 km x 20 km north-east trending structural corridor located in southern Ecuador. (see www.dynastymining.com for maps)
Dynasty’s President & CEO Robert Washer comments: “Our work in the field indicates that Copper Duke is a highly prospective target area. The additional concessions significantly increase its resource potential.”
ABOUT COPPER DUKE
Copper Duke is a porphyry-style cluster that contains nine altered targets with associated epithermal stockworks. Rock chip samples range in grade up to 7.1 grams per ton (“g/t”) gold and 251 g/t silver, 1.4 % copper and 8.9 % lead.
A major stream sediment anomaly extends 2 km x 7 km through the new concessions. A total of 346 stream sediment samples were taken with gold and copper values over 54 ppb and 266 ppm, respectively. Within the stream anomaly, a significant, 700 m x 600 m, soil anomaly was identified, with sample results ranging from 65 ppb to 1665 ppb gold, 210 ppb to 990 ppb silver and 200 ppb to 1195 ppb copper. Forty two rock chip samples taken from within the new concession area range from 0.05 g/t to 7.1 g/t gold, 0.8 g/t to 251 g/t silver, 0.04 % to 1.4 % copper and 0.04 % to 8.9 % lead. Mineralization is disseminated in porphyry-related, epithermal quartz stockworks. Much of the work on these new concessions was undertaken in 2002 by previous concession owners. Dynasty is now completing its own exploration program including systematic soil and rock channel sampling for drill target definition.
Exploration of the Company’s properties is conducted under the supervision, of Greg Whitfield, the Company’s Exploration Manager and a “qualified person”, as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
