VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 1, 2016) - Dynasty Metals & Mining Inc. ("Dynasty" or the "Company") (TSX:DMM)(OTCQX:DMMIF) announced that an unexpected walkout by workers at its Zaruma gold mine in Ecuador has resulted in the temporary suspension of all activities at the mine. Administration and all other projects of the Company are unaffected. Dynasty is exploring available options to resume mining activities at Zaruma, and is in discussions with worker representatives in cooperation with labour authorities with a view to resolving this situation as soon as practicable.

Management remains hopeful that the issues relating to this walkout can be resolved shortly. However, as the duration or outcome of the walkout is out of management's control and cannot be reasonably predicted, a further delay remains a possibility. The Company will provide updates as the situation evolves.
