("Mineras"), the 100% owned subsidiary of DynaUSA and the Operator of the San Jose de Gracia Property in northern Sinaloa, México ("SJG"), with the Santa Maria Ejido Community ("SJG Ejido") surrounding SJG.
The 20 Year Land Lease is dated January 6, 2014 and continues through 2033. It covers an area of 4,399 hectares surrounding the main mineral resource areas of SJG, and provides for annual lease payments by Mineras of $ 1,359,443 Pesos (approx. $ 104,250.USD), commencing in 2014.

Mr. K.D. Diepholz, Chairman-CEO of DynaUSA and President of Mineras, said: "I would like to express my appreciation to the Members of the Board of Directors of the Santa Maria Ejido, and to the hundreds of local SJG Ejido members, for placing their trust and confidence in Mineras. And, I would like to thank Ing. Jose de Jesus Leon Valenzuela, the Sinaloa State Representative of the Federal Mexican Procuraduria Agrarian Agency ('Subdelegado Operativo de la Delegacion Federal Procuraduria Agraria') for his advice and assistance in structuring the 20 Year Land Lease. I have enjoyed my direct working relationship with the SJG Ejido for the past 10 years, and I look forward to working directly with the SJG Ejido members in the future as Mineras continues to advance the SJG Project. And, I look forward with excitement to Mineras assisting the SJG Ejido with the plans of improving the local community and surrounding areas. Mineras will continue to plan and execute the next advances at SJG under the terms of the Exploitation Amendment Agreement ('EAA') with DynaResource de Mexico ('DynaMéxico'), the 100% owner of the SJG Project. DynaUSA currently owns 80% of DynaMéxico and DynaUSA owns 100% of Mineras."
Mineras - Mine Plan and Mill (Pilot Operations)
Mineras is conducting operations at SJG according to internally developed mine plans and through the internally designed SJG Pilot Mill Facility which was operated 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 Mineras 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 Current NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate for SJG", below); and from the analysis of underground mining works conducted in 2003-2006. The operations at SJG are managed by Keith W. Brogoitti, Vice-President of Mexico Operations for DynaUSA. Mineras has rehabilitated the San Pablo Mine area of SJG, and has refurbished the SJG Pilot Mill Facility and Mineras operatives will be delivering mineralized material mined from San Pablo to the SJG Mill Facility for subsequent processing and metallurgical testing. The SJG Pilot Mill Facility (a gravimetric-flotation circuit) is projected to process mineralized material from San Pablo in operations similar to those conducted by DynaMéxico during the 2003-2006 Period. (See "DynaUSA-DynaMéxico" below.)

IMPORTANT CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING CANADIAN DISCLOSURE STANDARDS
The Company is an "OTC Reporting Issuer" as that term is defined in BC Instrument 51-509, Issuers Quoted in the U.S. Over-the-Counter Markets, promulgated by the British Columbia Securities Commission. 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.

All statements in this news release, other than statements of historical fact, that address events or developments that DynaResource expects to occur, are "forward-looking information". These statements relate to future events or future performance and reflect the Company's expectations regarding the future growth, results of operations, business prospects and opportunities of DynaResource. These forward-looking statements reflect the Company's current internal projections, expectations or beliefs and are based on information currently available to DynaResource. In some cases forward-looking information can be identified by terminology such as "may", "will", "should", "expect", "intend", "plan", "anticipate", "believe", "estimate", "projects", "potential", "scheduled", "forecast", "budget" or the negative of those terms or other comparable terminology. Certain assumptions have been made regarding the Company's plans at the San Jose de Gracia 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. Forward-looking information is not a guarantee of future performance and actual results and future events could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking information. All of the forward-looking information contained in this news release is qualified by these cautionary statements. Although DynaResource believes that the forward-looking information contained in this news release is based on reasonable assumptions, readers cannot be assured that actual results will be consistent with such statements.
