Message: Durango Visits NMX East Lithium Property
Durango Resources Inc.(TSXV:DGO) (Frankfurt:86A1) (OTC:ATOXF), (the "Company" or "Durango") announces that further to the news of February 2, 2022, the Company has dispatched a crew for a site visit on its wholly owned NMX East Property in Quebec.
The Company's NMX East lithium property neighbours Nemaska Lithium's Whabouchi Deposit located approximately 33km east of the town of Nemaska in northern Quebec. Durango's NMX East property adjoins Nemaska Lithium's eastern property perimeter, and the Durango claim border is less than 1.5km away from the Whabouchi mining pit.
Durango intends to launch a limited reconnaissance program to prepare for drill testing the lithium bearing pegmatite occurrences below the surface in late spring or early summer. The small crew has been commissioned with determining access and obtaining additional surface samples as the weather conditions permit.
In 2016, Nemaska Lithium reported a newly discovered Doris zone extension located to the east (towards Durango's property boundary) of the Whabouchi deposit. According to Nemaska Lithium, "the Doris zone contains 5 interconnected dykes and has now been confirmed on 420m of lateral extension and up to a maximum depth of 440m where it joins the main dyke." Nemaska Lithium also stated that it was "prudent to consider the possible impact of its eastward continuance..." (see news release dated November 28, 2016).
To date, Durango has confirmed pegmatitic intrusions running parallel to Nemaska Lithium's main zone and Doris discovery and Durango's' intrusion tested positive for lithium, cesium and rubidium as reported on September 21, 2016. The Company has engaged a crew to conduct backpack drilling to assess the pegmatite outcrops below the surface for lithium, cesium, tantalum and rubidium.
Marcy Kiesman, CEO stated, "Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum pegmatite intrusions are known to occur in dyke swarms which can go on for kilometres which is consistent with what has been seen to date in this region. We have easy, priority, at-surface targets to initiate the exploration program this spring/summer which will hopefully continue at depth."
