Vancouver, BC / March 13, 2017 - Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO) (OTC-ATOXF), (the "Company" or "Durango") announces technical specifications on its Trove Property that is currently under negotiation (the "Trove Property") as well as the additional property in the area that was recently acquired by Durango (the "New Windfall Property").
Previous exploration work conducted by Durango on the Trove Property included a VLF-EM survey and a detailed humus grid sampling of 1046 samples. NE-SW trending conductors were identified and a strong anomalous gold signal was defined from the humus survey in the SW portion of the property, about 160 m from an NE-SW regional fault crossing the Trove Property. This anomalous gold signal consists of three contiguous anomalous gold values, including 171 ppb Au, which is the highest assayed gold value that was returned from the humus sampling1.
The Trove Property lies in a highly favorable area of the Windfall Lake Gold camp and is almost entirely enclosed by Osisko Mining's (TSX-OSK) ground. Per Durango's map, several Osisko till anomalies are adjacent to Trove Property, three of which are located down-ice, indicating a possible source inside the limits of the Trove Property. A multi-element statistical approach is needed to enhance the interpretation of the humus soil sampling survey.
Durango's recent acquisition of the New Windfall Property announced on March 6th, 2017 is located 2.5 km east of the Trove Property and adjoins the southern limit of Osisko's ground. A limited amount of exploration work has been conducted over this ground which totals an area of over 2,000 hectares. The New Windfall Property is located within 1.5 km of the regional NE-SW faults extending from the Gladiator project of Bonterra Resources. A Power line is crossing the central portion of the claim block and several lakes and rivers are present, which may facilitate the access for future exploration works. Topography indicates that the area could be suitable for a till survey, as a first step to outline future targets. An additional 600 hectares is located to the west of the Trove Property and to the south.
Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango stated, "Durango has been positioned for discovery in the Windfall Lake area since 2010 with positive indicators on the Trove Property and our recently-acquired New Windfall Property in the area. Durango looks forward to an exciting year ahead and is working diligently to bring additional value to our shareholders."
