Mining Law

January 28, 2009 the new Ecuadorian Mining Law was published in the Ecuadorian government's official registry and has now taken effect.

Key provisions:

  • No limits imposed on the number of concessions that can be held by a concessionaire;
  • Concessions are limited to a term of 25 years but are renewable;
  • A royalty of not less than 5% on sales;
  • Establishes clear timelines for project exploration and development


Dynasty Metals & Mining owns 100% of three mining exploration areas located in Ecuador, and is currently focused on the exploration and development of three gold projects.

The Company has two advanced stage gold projects nearing production, the Jerusalem and Zaruma projects, and one new large-scale discovery at the Dynasty project.

The Company is advancing the Jerusalem and Zaruma gold projects towards production and has completed extensive exploration to outline the projects' potential. Jerusalem and Zaruma have a massive combined resource of 3.8 million ounces of gold grading 11-12 g/t*. Dynasty's goal is to bring them into production as quickly as possible.

The Dynasty Gold Project is the company's latest discovery and management believes it has significant potential to host a large bulk-mineable gold resource. A recent technical report estimates initial measured and indicated resources of over 420,000 ounces of gold, and an additional 427,000 ounces of inferred gold resource.
