(a) - Excludes approximately 1,300 ounces of gold and 4,000 ounces of      
 silver stolen from the Zaruma plant on July 23, 2012 for which insurance  
 proceeds of approximately $2.2 million have been recovered.               
                                                                           
(b)- Since operations at the Company's Zaruma Gold Project are in the pre- 
 commercial phase, the proceeds from the sale of precious metals, net of   
 production expenses and taxes, are credited to mine development costs and 
 not recorded in the Company's consolidated statements of operations as    
 permitted under International Financial Accounting Standards.             

Production and Sales

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company received proceeds of $21.6 million from the sale of approximately 12,600 ounces of processed gold and 27,000 ounces of processed silver derived from intermittent operations at its processing plant in Zaruma while continuing testing and making improvements to the facility. In addition, during the three months ended September 30, 2012 the company received insurance proceeds of $2.2 million relating to approximately 1,300 ounces of gold and 4,000 ounces of silver that was stolen from the Zaruma plant during an armed robbery on July 23, 2012.

The installation of the gravity concentration circuit at the Zaruma processing plant has now been completed. The gravity concentration circuit increases the efficiency and recovery from the plant and by using the Falcon concentrator allows the Company to produce dore from concentrate on site rather than having to ship concentrate to a third party to be processed. The benefit of this circuit is expected to become increasingly important once the "Cabo de Hornos" mine has been dewatered (see discussion below) and the Company has access to higher grade material for mining.

Small Mining Licenses

On October 16, 2012 the Company announced that it had been granted small scale mining licenses for five concessions at its Zaruma Gold Project.

These five concessions are the focus of the Company's current mine development plans at Zaruma. Under the current Mining Law of Ecuador such licenses permit the Company to mine up to 300 tonnes per day from each concession at a royalty of 3%, payable to the Ecuador government, and no windfall tax on the extraction and sale of precious metals. Other corporate taxes are unaffected.

Mining

The Company is developing three separate mines, of which one mine, "Cabo de Hornos", currently supplies the majority of material to the plant for processing. A significant proportion of material processed to date has been excavated during mine development and is not part of the Company's estimated resource set out in its Technical Reports on the Zaruma Gold Project.

During the second quarter of 2012, as the declines at "Cabo de Hornos" progressed to further depths to access the higher grade material it became necessary to commence dewatering the lower levels of Dynasty's mine as well as the adjacent area. A primary cause of the accumulation in the water is believed to be the existence of the old abandoned mine workings in close proximity at the current level. Once the declines get beneath the level of the old mine workings the water intake to the mine is expected to subside. This dewatering process resulted in a decrease in both the tonnage and grade of material that has, and continues to be, accessible to mine.

Recently, the Company successfully dewatered the southern decline at "Cabo de Hornos" and has recommenced decline development in this area to gain access to the region where the higher grade material is believed to reside. The Company expects to have dewatered the northern decline at "Cabo de Hornos" in due course.

Liquidity

As at September 30, 2012, the Company had approximately $2.1 million in cash and gold dore available for sale, compared to approximately $9.0 million as at December 31, 2011.

The majority of the proceeds from the sale of precious metals continue to be re-invested in the Zaruma Gold Project to continue the advancement of the three declines and develop the project towards commercial production. The cash provided from gold and silver sales has allowed for the continued development of the project without the need for equity financing and further dilution to shareholders. As at June 30, 2012 the Company had 42.5 million shares outstanding and, with the exception of the exercise of incentive stock options, has not undertaken an equity financing since April, 2010.

Subsequent to September 30, 2012, and up to the date of this report, the Company produced and exported dore bars containing approximately 2,500 ounces of gold and 6,400 ounces of silver of which 1,766 ounces of gold and 3,400 ounces of silver have been sold to date for aggregate proceeds of approximately $3.2 million. The balance of the unsold gold of approximately 730 ounces, with a market value of approximately $1.3 million, is expected to be sold in the coming week.

Furthermore, on November 9, 2012 the Company received proceeds of $600,000 from entering into a loan agreement with a local Ecuadorian bank. The Loan is secured by the Company owned office premises in Quito.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains statements which are, or may be deemed to be, "forward-looking statements" which are prospective in nature, including, without limitation, statements regarding Dynasty's future plans, the expected benefits derived from the utilization of new equipment, and expectations relating to the Cabo de Hornos mine. Forward-looking statements are not based on historical facts, but rather on then current expectations, beliefs, assumptions, estimates and forecasts about the business and the industry and markets in which the Company operates, including assumptions that the Company will be able to continue its progress in respect of its mines as planned, that the Falcon concentrator will be installed as described, that the Company will continue to sell processed gold and silver at levels that allow it to fund the continued development of its mining projects, and that the Company's equipment will operate at expected levels. Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "projects", "intends", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", or "believes", or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "should", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved.

Such statements are qualified in their entirety by the inherent risks and uncertainties surrounding future expectations. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause Dynasty's actual results, revenues, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Important risks that could cause Dynasty's actual results, revenues, performance or achievements to differ materially from Dynasty's expectations include, among other things: (i) risks related to being an early stage producer; (ii) risks related to Dynasty's lack of history in producing metals from Dynasty's mineral exploration properties and its ability to successfully establish mining operations or profitably produce precious metals; (iii) that Dynasty will be unable to successfully negotiate agreements with the holders of surface rights on areas covered by Dynasty's project concessions; (iv) changes in the market prices of gold, silver, and other minerals, which, in the past, have fluctuated widely and which could affect the profitability of Dynasty's operations and financial condition; (v) risks related to governmental regulations, including taxation statutes; (vi) risks related to Dynasty's primary properties being located in Ecuador, including political, economic, and regulatory instability; (vii) uncertainty in Dynasty's ability to obtain and maintain certain permits necessary to the Company's current and anticipated operations and risks disclosed in Dynasty's Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2011 and other filings which are available on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com. Other than in accordance with its legal or regulatory obligations, Dynasty is not under any obligation and Dynasty expressly disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, other than as required by applicable securities law.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.

This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace. These technological reforms have not only changed computers and smartphones, but are also changing the data processing model for all information devices. In particular, in the area known as M2M (Machine-To-Machine), there are great expectations that information with a new type of value can be produced using a variety of devices and sensors saving/sharing data via the network and through large-scale cloud-type data processing. This consortium believes that attaching a huge number of devic...
