Vancouver, BC / September 29, 2016 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces its plans to advance its limestone projects near Prince Rupert, British Columbia to prepare for the increase in aggregate and limestone required for infrastructure construction related to the potential construction of the Pacific NorthWest LNG export terminal in Northern British Columbia.

On September 27, 2016, the federal Liberal cabinet conditionally approved construction of the Pacific NorthWest LNG project, a proposed $11.4 billion terminal to export liquefied natural gas in Northern British Columbia.

Durango plans to move forward on its limestone projects near the proposed LNG facility. The Company is presently in the final stages of preparation for its upcoming phase 1 exploration program on its limestone properties.

The Globe and Mail report on business stated on September 27, 2016, “Constructing Pacific NorthWest LNG would be a massive shot in the arm for the B.C. economy. The consortium estimates the total cost at $36-billion by its completion in 2021, including the construction of the liquefaction terminal and pipelines that would connect with natural gas supplies…” In the same article, Conservative interim leader Rona Ambrose stated, “this is a project that will create thousands of jobs, create billions of dollars in investments and it is a project that’s absolutely necessary for the prosperity of this country.” (1)

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango, comments, “Durango is very pleased with the decision from the federal government and looks forward to Petronas determining its path forward for the project. In anticipation, we will be actively moving forward with exploration programs on our limestone projects in the area.”

Durango currently holds the past producing Smith Island limestone project located 6km southwest of Lelu Island which is where Petronas’ $36B proposed LNG facility is expected to be built. Durango also holds a 320-hectare property called the Mayner’s Fortune located 7.5km southwest of Terrace, B.C. which hosts six mapped sub parallel limestone units.
