(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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

For years, we’ve relied too heavily on individual network functions or simplistic cloud controllers. However, they are no longer enough for today’s modern cloud data center. Businesses need a comprehensive platform architecture in order to deliver a complete networking suite for IoT environment based on OpenStack. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dhiraj Sehgal from PLUMgrid will discuss what a holistic networking solution should really entail, and how to build a complete platform that is scalable, secure, agile and automated.
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations. Imagine ...
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
