Core Gold owns 100% of three mining production and/or exploration areas located in Southern Ecuador and is currently focused on the continued development of the Dynasty Goldfield project within the Dynasty District which began mining operations in December 2016, and the Zaruma Gold Mine & Portovelo Mill Project, which began commercial production as of October 1, 2013.




The Company is currently focused on developing and exploring our 100% owned Dynasty District. The Dynasty District is a 50,000-hectare land package host to a 30 Km by 90 Km long copper-gold belt extending from the Peruvian border on its southern edge 90 Km’s NE towards Zaruma, Ecuador. The Dynasty District is an extension of the prolific Peruvian copper-gold trend and includes five known production and exploration targets, with well known gold-copper porphyry and epithermal vein potential (see illustration below). 

Core Gold management put the Dynasty Goldfield target within the Dynasty District into production within four months of assuming control of the Dynasty District in Q3 2016. The Dynasty Goldfield target has a total 43-101 resource of 2,202,000 oz Au.


Core Gold exploration plans include a drilling program at the highly prospective Copper Duke (Cu-Au porphyry potential) and Linderos (brecciated shear zone which has showings of very high grade surface Au mineralization) projects within the Dynasty District.
