  • Properties have been offered to the Company in the Windfall Lake gold camp area for purchase
  • Management and consultants are looking at the land packages offered and reviewing the available technical data

Vancouver, BC / March 24, 2017 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO) (OTC-ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that additional properties have been offered to the Company in the Windfall Lake gold camp area for purchase. Company management and consultants are looking at the land packages offered and reviewing the available technical data.

The Windfall Lake gold deposit is located between Val d’Or and Chibougamau in the Abitibi region of Quebec and hosts one of the highest-grade gold resource stage projects in Canada. Last month, $109M dollars in financings were announced by four companies exploring in the area, gaining increased attention for the Windfall Lake gold camp.

Additionally, Durango would also like to provide an update on its Trove Property which lies in a highly favorable area of the Windfall Lake Gold camp and is almost entirely enclosed by Osisko Mining’s (TSX-OSK) ground. As previously announced on February 24 and 27, 2017, negotiations are progressing and Durango expects to be providing a detailed update to the market in the near future.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango stated, “Durango remains a firm believer in the favourable geology in the Windfall Lake Camp and the possibility of the regional gold discoveries being pervasive throughout the region. The Company has been positioned for discovery in the area since 2010 and is working conscientiously to bring additional value to our shareholders as the district heats up.”

Durango Provides Update On Properties in Windfall Lake Area $DGO.ca

  • Announces technical specifications on its Trove Property that is currently under negotiation as well as the additional property in the area that was recently acquired by Durango

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.”

Chile’s SQM sees 8-10% growth in lithium demand this year $NAM.ca $DGO.ca $BFF.ca $SX.ca $FMR.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:22 AM on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017
  • “The prices in the lithium market and the growth in demand have been quite relevant in recent years. We expect growth in demand for this product of between 8 and 10 percent,” Illanes said.

Feb 19 Chile’s SQM expects demand for lithium to grow between 8 percent and 10 percent this year and is working to improve financial performance by 2020, an executive told local paper El Mercurio on Sunday.

SQM, one of the world’s biggest producers of lithium and iodine, has been trying to consolidate its position with investments abroad.

In 2020 SQM expects annual earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $1 billion. Currently quarterly EBITDA is less than $200 million, Gerardo Illanes, vice president of finances, told the newspaper.

“The prices in the lithium market and the growth in demand have been quite relevant in recent years. We expect growth in demand for this product of between 8 and 10 percent,” Illanes said.

SQM plans to invest $100 million to increase its production capacity this year, which combined with its capital injection in Argentina would lead to a total investment of around $300 million, he said.

Illanes said SQM would not have a problem financing its projects although he did not rule out tapping debt markets. (Reporting by Fabián Andrés Cambero; Writing by Caroline Stauffer; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)

  • Acquired a 100% interest in British Columbia industrial mineral claims covering five projects which include bentonite, perlite, and zeolite BC MINFILE occurrences

Vancouver, BC / February 16, 2017 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired a 100% interest in British Columbia industrial mineral claims covering five projects which include bentonite, perlite, and zeolite BC MINFILE occurrences.

One zeolite project is located adjacent to the recently announced acquisition by Ashburton Ventures (TSX.V-ABR), as outlined in the Ashburton news release dated January 30, 2017. The Durango acquisition overstakes the irregular-shaped mining lease of the Z-1 zeolite quarry/mine near Cache Creek, British Columbia, being acquired by Ashburton and is within approximately 800 metres of the centre of the mining lease.

The second zeolite project is also located in the Cache Creek area, along Hwy 1/Hwy 97. Durango is acquiring 100% of an occurrence of zeolite, known as Perry Ranch, reported in 2011. The acquisition covers an area that is reported as “…approximately 300 metres long and contains several layers to 10 metres depth.” (1)

The third claim block covers the Uncha Lake perlite occurrence (2), and is located near Burns Lake, British Columbia. Past work discusses the occurrences as a perlite unit interbedded within porphyritic rhyolite layers which are reported to be 2.0 – 9.0 metres thick. The perlite is light grey to pale greenish-grey with some perlitic glass occurrences. The perlite generally dips shallowly to the south and is 7.6 to 23.9 metres thick. The report goes on to state that historical reports indicate that in 1955, nineteen trenches were exposed at approximately 45 metre intervals, exposing 2,400 metres of bedrock. Six perlite layers along a zone 850 metres long and 500 metres wide were exposed. (2) (3)

Durango is also acquiring the past-producing Princeton Bentonite occurrence, near Princeton, British Columbia, which was historically reported to have produced 771 tonnes of bentonite between 1926 and 1944. (4)

Three additional titles adjacent to the Dot Mordenite BC MINFILE occurrence near Merritt, British Columbia, which has been reported as a potential zeolite prospect, area also part of this land package. (5) (6)

Further details on these acquisitions will be provided as they become available.

About Zeolite, Perlite, and Bentonite

Zeolites are microporous aluminosilicate minerals commonly used as commercial absorbents and catalysts in the petrochemical industry as well as detergents. They are also widely used as ion-exchange beds in domestic and commercial water purification, softening, and aquaculture applications. Zeolite is also used in growing media, animal feed supplements, composting, and alternative medicine.

Perlite is an amorphous volcanic glass, typically formed by the hydration of obsidian. It has the unusual property of greatly expanding when heated sufficiently. Perlite is primarily used in construction in the production of lightweight plasters, mortars and cement formulations, and in well cements for oil and gas drilling. In horticulture, perlite can be used as a soil amendment or alone as a medium for hydroponics or for starting cuttings.

Bentonite is an absorbent aluminum phyllosilicate clay consisting mostly of montmorillonite. The main uses of bentonite are for drilling mud, binder (e.g. foundry-sand bond, iron ore pelletizer), purifier, absorbent, and as a groundwater barrier. Bentonite is also used in some forms of alternative medicine.

Durango has agreed to pay 1,000,000 common shares to an arm’s length vendor for the 100% acquisition of all projects subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

The technical contents of this release were approved by Case Lewis, P.Geo., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The property has not yet been the subject of a National Instrument 43-101 report.
