Mr. K.D. Diepholz, Chairman/CEO of DynaUSA, said, “Mr. Mladosich brings a direct and hands on approach, which is a perfect fit for DynaResource and its current activities at San Jose de Gràcia. Rene will be the on-site leader of the operations and project development at the San Jose de Gràcia Project (‘SJG’), under Mineras de DynaResource S.A. de C.V. (‘DynaMineras’), the exclusive operating entity at SJG. Future development is projected to include an expansion of the current underground mining and pilot production activities, and is expected to include DynaMineras’ accomplishing of a preliminary economic assessment report, scoping study, or similar, which report will be expected to support the project financing of the possible open pit production at SJG.
“Further, Rene is joining DynaResource at an optimum time, where he can lead and manage the day to day test mining and milling operations, and where he can lead the expansion of the test underground mining and milling operations, and he can direct the near term increase in test mining and pilot production volumes and output. I’m looking forward to working directly with Rene, and with our team of managers and personnel in México; together we have established the goal of increasing the volume of current operations to 200 tons per day by June 30, 2016. I am confident Rene can lead our team on the ground towards accomplishing our targets. And I am delighted to welcome Rene to the DynaResource Companies.”
Mr. Mladosich said: “The DynaResource Companies and the SJG Project offer a unique and substantial opportunity for the development of a first-class mining company. I am excited to join a very talented professional and management team already in place at the DynaResource Companies, in both the US and México. The SJG mine and plant teams include knowledgeable and experienced mining engineers, geologists, plant processing and lab personnel who exhibit the expertise and experience to operate mines and develop mineral deposits. I am looking forward to providing the on-site leadership and guidance for the DynaResource Companies, in order to develop and expand the SJG Project into a world class property.
“Further, in the short term, I will be focused on increasing production volumes and outputs to a projected target of 200 tons per day by June 30, 2016, and I am confident we can accomplish our goals. I am excited to join the DynaResource team, and I look forward to working with Mr. Diepholz and the executive managers and personnel of the Company; I can foresee a long term and significant professional opportunity within the DynaResource group of companies.”

DynaMineras is named the exclusive operating entity at the SJG Project. Under the terms of the Operating Agreement, DynaMineras retains the rights to finance, maintain, operate, explore and exploit the SJG Property.
DynaMineras – 20 Year Land Lease Agreement
On January 6, 2014, DynaMineras entered into a 20-year land lease agreement (The “20 Year Land Lease”) with the Santa Maria Ejido Community (“SJG Ejido”) surrounding SJG.
The 20 Year Land Lease covers an area of 4,399 hectares surrounding the main mineral resource areas of SJG, and provides for annual lease payments by DynaMineras of $1,359,443 Pesos (approx. $ 75,000 USD).
DynaMineras – Mine Plan and Mill Operations (Pilot Operations)
DynaMineras is conducting operations at SJG according to internally developed mine plans for San Pablo Mine, and through the internally designed SJG Pilot Mill facility (consisting of a basic gravity-flotation circuit) which was previously operated by DynaUSA during the 2003-2006 period. There is no preliminary economic assessment report completed for SJG so the precise cutoff grade for underground mining has not yet been determined. The operations are being funded internally by DynaMineras and DynaUSA. The mine plan was developed from the block model of resources as defined in the DynaMéxico NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate (“See NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate for SJG”, below); and from the analysis of underground mining works conducted in 2003-2006.

IMPORTANT CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING CANADIAN DISCLOSURE STANDARDS
The Company is an “OTC Reporting Issuer” as that term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 51-509, Issuers Quoted in the U.S. Over-the-Counter Markets, promulgated by various Canadian Provincial Securities Commissions.
Accordingly, certain disclosure in this news release or other disclosure provided by the Company has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of securities laws in effect in Canada, which differ from the requirements of United States securities laws. In Canada, an issuer is required to provide technical information with respect to mineralization, including reserves and resources, if any, on its mineral exploration properties in accordance with Canadian requirements, which differ significantly from the requirements of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC“) applicable to registration statements and reports filed by United States companies pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. As such, information contained in this news release or other disclosure provided by the Company concerning descriptions of mineralization under Canadian standards may not be comparable to similar information made public by United States companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the SEC and not subject to Canadian securities legislation. This news release or other disclosure provided by the Company may use the terms “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources”. While these terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations (under National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects), the SEC does not recognize them. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted to reserves. In addition, “inferred mineral resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian securities legislation, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, although they may form, in certain circumstances, the basis of a “preliminary economic assessment” as that term is defined in National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred mineral resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.

Certain assumptions have been made regarding the Company’s plans at the San Jose de Gràcia property. Many of these assumptions are based on factors and events that are not within the control of DynaResource and there is no assurance they will prove to be correct. Such factors include, without limitation: capital requirements, fluctuations in the international currency markets and in the rates of exchange of the currencies of the United States and México; price volatility in the spot and forward markets for commodities; discrepancies between actual and estimated production, between actual and estimated reserves and resources and between actual and estimated metallurgical recoveries; changes in national and local governments in any country which DynaResource currently or may in the future carry on business; taxation; controls; regulations and political or economic developments in the countries in which DynaResource does or may carry on business; the speculative nature of mineral exploration and development, including the risks of obtaining necessary licenses and permits, diminishing quantities or grades of reserves; competition; loss of key employees; additional funding requirements; actual results of current exploration or reclamation activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; accidents; labor disputes; defective title to mineral claims or property or contests over claims to mineral properties. In addition, there are risks and hazards associated with the business of mineral exploration, development and mining, including environmental hazards, industrial accidents, unusual or unexpected formations, pressures, cave-ins, flooding and gold bullion losses (and the risk of inadequate insurance or inability to obtain insurance, to cover these risks) as well as those risks referenced in the Annual Report for DynaResource available at www.sec.gov.
