Dana Poised to Take Advantage of Recent Rise in Base Metal Prices

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - September 14, 2009) - (OTCBB: DANR) (FRANKFURT: OD0) -- Dana Resources is a US-based precious metals development company with advanced stage gold and base metal properties in Peru. Dana Resources comments on recent copper and base metals surge.

China, the world's third largest economy, continues to drive demand for copper and base metals to fuel its ever-increasing need for power, infrastructure and the real estate sector. Government data showed investment growth in China's real estate market accelerated sharply in August, while prices and sales continue to rise. Copper prices have already more than doubled this year, thanks to record imports from China in the first half.

Analysts have begun revising forecasts higher for base metals demand, which in turn has created a surge in buying moving prices up sharply. The deteriorating US dollar also makes metals cheaper to holders of other currencies and should give them more room to rise. Some expect demand to pick up in November for the seasonal end of year surge.

Mr. Len DeMelt, Dana Resources President, comments on the recent price appreciation, "This bodes well for Dana to take advantage of the recent surge in base metals prices. This will help attract new investment into the company and advance its base metals projects. We expect to continue to see strong demand in copper and related base metals."
