  • Has been offered to purchase certain prospective rare earth projects
  • consisting of cerium, hafnium, lanthanum, scandium, yttrium and zirconium

Vancouver, BC / June 20, 2017 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTC-ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that it has been offered to purchase certain prospective rare earth projects consisting of cerium, hafnium, lanthanum, scandium, yttrium and zirconium.

On June 17th, 2017, Fox News published an article titled “Trump Energy Dept. Seeks to Mine Elements Monopolized By China” http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/06/17/donald-trump-coal-mining-rare-earth-elements-comes-china-appalachia. The article states how rare earth elements are “crucial for production of electronics, military equipment and some medications” and how the “Energy Department says it will invest nearly $7 million into researching ways to mine and produce these elements”.

Additionally, on June 18th, 2017, The Wall Street Journal published an article called “Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross Talks Trade” https://www.wsj.com/articles/commerce-secretary-wilbur-ross-talks-trade-1497838380 which stated, “China is a very big supplier of rare earths, which are quite essential to many electronic products. They drove everybody in this country out of business by dumping, dumping, dumping, dumping. And guess what happened once they did? Prices suddenly went way up.”

Marcy Kiesman stated, “To remain relevant and positioned for discovery, management has forwarded the prospective properties to Durango’s Board of Directors and geological team for review and will provide an update as soon as it becomes available.”

Durango Initiates Geophysical Exploration on Decouverte (Discovery), QC $DGO.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:29 AM on Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Logo

  • Planning further exploration for the Decouverte Property in relation to its grant from the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique
  • Neighbours on the west side of the project is Osisko Mining Inc.’s (TSX-OSK) Assinica property and to the northwest is Beaufield Resources Inc.’s Troilus-Tortigny Property (TSX.V-BFD)

Vancouver, BC / May 30, 2017 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTC-ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that it is planning further exploration for the Decouverte Property in relation to its grant from the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (“INRS”) as announced June 1, 2015, September 18, 2015, November 5, 2015 and November 30, 2015.

Durango’s wholly owned Decouverte (Discovery) property is in the Frotet-Evans greenstone belt in northern Quebec approximately 100km to the northwest of the town of Chibougamau. Neighbours on the west side of the project is Osisko Mining Inc.’s (TSX-OSK) Assinica property and to the northwest is Beaufield Resources Inc.’s Troilus-Tortigny Property (TSX.V-BFD). The former-producing Troilus mine is approximately 60km northeast along the same fault. It is noteworthy to mention that there are three important massive sulphide showings to the west (Fallara, Rapides Assinica and Lucky Strike) and to the East are VMS deposits with proven resources (Tortigny, Lessard, De Maures, Moleon).

The INRS grant (FQRNT-MERN-MINES) on the Decouverte property is being used to focus on defining the electromagnetic (EM) anomalies from Durango’s Dighem airborne survey, which may be indicative of massive sulphide mineralization.

The research grant is being used on the site of the Decouverte property to test the utility of deep penetration geophysical methods (audiomagnetotelleluric: AMT, Controlled Source ElectroMagnetics; CSEM) to document the VMS mineralization potential of the lake Pasquale area.

At the end of 2015, 9.9 km of magnetometric, gravimetric and electromagnetic (FDEM) surveys were carried out along 3 sections intersecting different lithological units and structures of the Decouverte property. These sections also intersect magnetic and EM anomalies detected by the DIGHEM heliborne survey. An audiomagnetotelluric survey was also realized to document the deep geophysics (0-1500m) under line 3 which intersects a large conductive magnetic anomaly.

Given the presence of formational conductors on the Decouverte property, gravimetry and sub-surface electrical resistivity work will be carried out to characterize the main anomalies detected by the DIGHEM survey. A follow-up exploration program (outcrops, erratic blocks) will be carried out in 9 sectors previously identified as priority. Finally, a lithogeochemical study will be carried out to document the geochemical signature of felsic volcanics in the southern part of the property. This sector includes base metal showings associated with felsic and intermediate volcanics. According to the report of Falconbridge Ni, these showings had been discovered by ground FDEM and magnetic surveys.

The work is planned to occur in late June and additional details will be announced as they become available.

Rock sampling has been conducted by INRS and is undergoing petrophysics laboratory studies on the Decouverte rocks. The geophysical, petrophysical and geological data of the Decouverte is being developed into a model of the deep geology on the property. Once the report is completed it will be announced and published on the corporate website of Durango.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango, stated, “The Decouverte property remains a compelling project for Durango due to its volcano-sedimentary environment and structural geology which increases the potential for a significant gold and /or VMS deposit. Durango is positioned for discovery as VMS deposits often occur in clusters which mean that the discovery of one may indicate that there are others nearby.”

The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Marc Richer-LaFleche, P.Geo QC, a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101.

About Decouverte

The Decouverte property is in the Frotet-Evans greenstone belt approximately 60 kilometres southwest of the former Troilus copper-gold mine, which produced over two million ounces Au and 50,000 tonnes Cu from 1997 to 2010. The property covers approximately 5,900 hectares covering a synclinal fold nose of Archean units transected by a major northeast-trending shear zone. Durango carried out a helicopter-borne DIGHEM EM/magnetic airborne geophysical survey on the property in 2011 (NR Nov. 24, 2011) and soil geochemistry and prospecting in 2013 and 2014 targeting areas identified in the airborne survey. The geological setting is mainly mafic volcanics (basalts/andesites), in places strongly sheared, cut by pegmatitic granitic units, and significant sedimentary, oxide and sulphide facies iron formation units. Alteration including silica, sericite and iron carbonate is noted. Significant soil values included 174 ppb gold, 0.66 ppm silver, 150 ppm nickel, 200 ppm copper and 240 ppm barium. Chip/channel rock samples gave values of 7.6 g/t gold and 6.24 g/t gold hosted in narrow quartz veins in mafic volcanics, in the contact area with the pegmatitic granite. The property is located 100 kilometres north of Chibougamau, Quebec and benefits from favourable infrastructure, including road accessibility, being 10 kilometres from Route du Nord, and a power line that bisects the property.

  • Water Security Agency of Saskatchewan has granted permission for Durango to dewater Pit#1 on its wholly owned Dianna Lake Silver Project in northern Saskatchewan

Vancouver, BC / May 11, 2017 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO) (OTC- ATOXF) (Frankfurt-86A1), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that further to the news release dated May 2, 2017, the Water Security Agency of Saskatchewan has granted permission for Durango to dewater Pit#1 on its wholly owned Dianna Lake Silver Project in northern Saskatchewan.

As previously announced on September 6, 2016, Durango’s team was successful in locating and mapping nearly all historical drill holes, pits, and trenches. In addition, several new silver, copper, and gold-bearing showings were discovered during the 2016 reconnaissance program. The program encountered high-grade silver and copper anomalies which were taken in channel samples from the main zone of historic workings and grab samples from the surrounding areas.

Durango management is preparing a follow-up program for the Dianna Lake property in 2017 which will entail further investigation of the anomalies discovered in 2016 and will also include work on historical Pit#1 (see news releases of July 13, 2016 and September 6, 2016). In 2016, Pit #1 was flooded with water, however, based on historical documentation, the highest-grade silver material was recovered from this historic pit. Now that Durango has the go ahead to dewater Pit#1, the Company plans to fully sample the pit in the upcoming 2017 exploration campaign.

Durango is currently in discussions with its exploration team and more definitive timing on the 2017 summer exploration program at Dianna Lake will be announced as soon as it is available

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango, comments, “Durango is very pleased with the expediency and the positive response by the Water Security Agency of Saskatchewan. We look forward to sampling the historical pit and verifying the historically documented silver results of Dianna Lake this summer. Durango remains positioned for discovery at the Dianna Lake Silver prospect in Saskatchewan.”

About Dianna Lake Silver, Saskatchewan

Durango’s Dianna Lake silver prospect covers an historical area in which, from 1968 to 1969, two-high grade, primarily native silver-bearing exploration targets of between 30,000 tonnes and 50,000 tonnes grading five to ten ounces per ton silver, approximately 600 meters apart, were determined by trench grab sample assays, according to an historical evaluation report composed for Comaplex Resources in 1980 (1)*.

* Potential quantities and grades are conceptual in nature. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource, and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.

  • Windfall Lake Gold Camp area (the “Windfall East Property” and “Windfall West Property”, and collectively the “New Windfall Properties”) has been approved by the TSX Venture Exchange.
  • Durango closed the acquisition on April 11, 2017

Vancouver, BC / April 18, 2017 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTC-ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that further to its news release dated March 6, 2017, its recent acquisition of properties in the Windfall Lake Gold Camp area (the “Windfall East Property” and “Windfall West Property”, and collectively the “New Windfall Properties”) has been approved by the TSX Venture Exchange. Durango closed the acquisition on April 11, 2017.

The New Windfall Properties are comprised of approximately 2,700 hectares and adjoin the limit of Osisko Mining Inc.’s (TSX-OSK) property. The Windfall East Property is approximately five kilometres southeast of the Black Dog Au-Ag-Cu discovery. Osisko is currently drilling the extent of this new mineralization which appears as distinct subvertical zones dipping to the southeast and distributed along a NE-trending linear magnetic structure (Osisko’s Press release of January 18, 2017 and conceptual model on Osisko’s website).

The Windfall East Property runs along the southern perimeter of a projected large fault/lineament, a favorable environment for Archean lode gold deposit. Although the Windfall East Property is located outside the mapped Urban Barry greenstone belt, it remains prospective as many gold occurrences are found outside greenstone belts (eg. Cheechoo Project of Sirios Resources) and are rather driven by structural controls.

A limited amount of exploration work has been conducted over the Windfall East Property which totals an area of over 2,000 hectares. It is located within 1.5 km of the regional northeast-southwest faults extending from the Gladiator project of Bonterra Resources. A power line is crossing the central portion of the east claim block, and several lakes and rivers are present, which may facilitate access for future exploration work. Topography indicates that the area could be suitable for a till survey, as a first step to outline future targets.

The Windfall West Property is an additional block of approximately 675 hectares and is located to the west of Durango’s Trove property and adjoins Beaufield Resources Inc.’s (TSX.V-BFD) western perimeter and is accessible for exploration work via a main logging road from the town of Lebel-sur-Quevillon.

Durango Receives OK to use Limestone as Fertilizer $DGO.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:50 AM on Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

  • Management confirms its limestone is suitable for fertilizer use
  • Limestone is extremely beneficial for the agricultural industry including its use as a soil conditioner

Vancouver, BC / April 12, 2017 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO) (OTC-ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that further to the news of April 5, 2017 management confirms its limestone is suitable for fertilizer use.

Upon review, it was determined that Durango’s limestone is exempt from the registration process of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). The limestone is still subject to regulations and required to meet all the standards and requirements set forth in the Fertilizers Act and Regulations. Fertilizer and supplement products are regulated under the authority of the Fertilizers Act, which is administered by the CFIA.

Limestone is extremely beneficial for the agricultural industry including its use as a soil conditioner. The limestone is activated when it meets with water and dissolves into the soil, which lowers the acidity and raises the pH, which is essential for crop yields. The lime also adds desirable nutrients to the soils such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, which can improve soil structure, increase rates of air and water filtration, improve plant cell wall formation, and help regulate the nutrient uptake through the roots of the plant. Hydroponic-type systems are more prone to incur a calcium deficiency and require the use of limestone.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango stated, “Durango is fortunate to have highly favourable grades of limestone on the Mayner’s Fortune property. This creates additional opportunities for potential end-users which Durango will now actively investigate commercial-use mediums for its limestone due to the recent CFIA discussions.”

About Mayner’s Fortune

The Mayner’s Fortune property is located 7.5 kilometres southwest of Terrace, B.C., along the CN rail route between Terrace and Kitimat and hosts six historically mapped subparallel limestone units. Durango completed two exploration visits on the Mayner’s Fortune project in the late fall of 2016, which included sampling to test limestone quality and mapping substantiate historic reports. Assays of results of February 8, 2017 and December 14, 2016 achieved CaCO3* (calcium carbonate) (56.00 per cent CaCO (calcium oxide)).

*Theoretical value of CaCO3 is calculated based on the assay value of CaO at 1.78476 per cent and is used to estimate limestone (CaCO3) composition. This calculation assumes all CaO analyzed is present at CaCO3.

About Durango

Durango is a natural resources company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties. The Company has a 100% interest in the Mayner’s Fortune and Smith Island limestone properties in northwest British Columbia, the Decouverte and Trove gold properties in the Abitibi Region of Quebec, and the NMX East lithium property near the Whabouchi mine and the Buckshot graphite property near the Miller Mine in Quebec, the Whitney Northwest property near the Lake Shore Gold and Goldcorp joint venture in Ontario.

  • Management has initiated discussions with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in relation to using its limestone for fertilizer use

Vancouver, BC / April 5, 2017 – Durango Resources Inc.(TSX.V-DGO) (OTC-ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that management has initiated discussions with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in relation to using its limestone for fertilizer use.

Fertilizer and supplement products are regulated under the authority of the Fertilizers Act, which is administered by the CFIA.

Limestone is extremely beneficial for the agricultural industry, as the chemical properties of agricultural lime can significantly boost the profit yield of farms and increase efficiencies of the fertilizers of up to 50%increasing crop yields and profitability.

The limestone is activated when it meets with water and dissolves into the soil, which lowers the acidity and raises the pH, which is essential for crop yields. The lime also adds desirable nutrients to the soils such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, which can improve soil structure, increase rates of air and water infiltration, improve plant cell wall formation, and help to regulate the nutrient uptake through the roots of the plant. Hydroponic systems are more prone to incur a calcium deficiency and require the use of limestone, therefore Durango is investigating the synergy of agricultural limestone for such soil conditioning mediums.

Further details on the suitability of Durango’s limestone for use as a fertilizer will be provided as they become available.

About Mayner’s Fortune

The Mayner’s Fortune property is located 7.5 kilometres southwest of Terrace, B.C., along the CN rail route between Terrace and Kitimat and hosts six historically mapped subparallel limestone units.

Vancouver, BC / March 30, 2017 – BonTerra Resources Inc. (TSX.V-BTR, US: BONXF, FSE: 9BR1) (“BonTerra”) and Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO, OTC: ATOXF, FSE:86A1), (“Durango”) are pleased to announce that they have entered into an option agreement (the “Agreement”) under which BonTerra can earn a 100% interest in Durango’s Trove Windfall Lake Property located in the Windfall-Urban Gold Camp district of northern Quebec (the “Trove Property”).

The Trove Property, surrounded by properties held by Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX: OSK) (“Osisko”) and Beaufield Resources Inc. (TSXV: BFD) (“Beaufield”), is a direct extension of the south west mineralized trend that BonTerra is currently exploring on its Gladiator Gold Deposit and Coliseum Gold Property. The BonTerra technical team is experienced and very familiar with the type of geology hosted by the Trove Property.

Pursuant to the Agreement, BonTerra may earn a 100% interest in the Trove Property from Durango in exchange for making the following payments and undertaking the following exploration work on the Trove Property:

  • -BonTerra must pay Durango CDN$150,000 in cash and issue Durango 1,500,000 BonTerra common shares within 2 business days of the date the TSX-V approves of the transaction (the “Closing Date”);-on or before the first anniversary of the Closing Date, BonTerra must pay Durango a further CDN$150,000 in cash and issue Durango an additional 1,500,000 common shares;

    -on or before the second anniversary of the Closing Date, BonTerra must pay Durango $200,000 and complete a minimum of CDN$1,000,000 in exploration expenditures, upon which BonTerra will have exercised its option and full title of the Property will be transferred from Durango to BonTerra;

    -BonTerra will issue an additional 2,000,000 common shares to Durango as a discovery bonus if, and when, BonTerra produces a technical report compliant with National Instrument 43-101 showing a minimum 500,000 ounces inferred resource of gold; and

    -Durango will retain a 2% net smelter return royalty in respect of the Trove Property. BonTerra may purchase 50% of this royalty at any time for $1,000,000.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango, stated “The next exploration stage of the Trove Property requires immediate expenditures for drilling, which Durango’s management is unwilling to finance at current share prices due to the dilution which would result for our shareholders. Entering into this transaction with BonTerra provides Durango with cash flow and allows Durango to share in BonTerra’s potential success in working the Trove Property as a shareholder of BonTerra. BonTerra brings a strong management team and a talented exploration team for future exploration on the Trove, having made a significant gold discovery in the Windfall Lake area on the eastern section, making this partnership an exciting opportunity for Durango. Durango recently acquired additional strategically located ground in the Windfall Lake area adjacent to Osisko and within a few kilometres of the Trove Property boundary, and plans to advance this newly-acquired property in the same manner as the Trove Property was advanced. If Bonterra has success exploring the Trove Property, Durango may be better positioned finance large exploration drilling programs on its other projects. We are very excited about this transaction and the year ahead.”

The Agreement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and will be filed on SEDAR under the profiles of each of Durango and BonTerra at www.sedar.com.

  • Properties have been offered to the Company in the Windfall Lake gold camp area for purchase

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.”
