Durango Phase One Exploration Completed at Nemaska Properties $DGO.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:37 AM on Monday, August 15th, 2016

  • Exploration team has completed its inaugural field exploration program on its group of properties near Nemaska
  • Program which included detailed mapping and sampling of the newly identified pegmatite outcrops and outcropping ridges on Durango’s Nemaska Whabouchi area properties

Vancouver, BC / August 15, 2016 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that further to the news release of August 3, 2016, Durango’s exploration team has completed its inaugural field exploration program on its group of properties near Nemaska, Quebec.

Mr. Donald Theberge, P.Eng., M.B.A led the exploration program which included detailed mapping and sampling of the newly identified pegmatite outcrops and outcropping ridges on Durango’s Nemaska Whabouchi area properties. The helicopter assisted work program focused on reaching inaccessible areas to prioritize drill targets and was completed ahead of schedule thanks to the hard working exploration crew.

Previous work in 2011 outlined multiple pegmatite occurrences on Durango’s NMX East claims adjacent to Nemaska Lithium Inc. (TSX-NMX), and were evaluated for targets to be added to a drilling schedule. The program was successful in sampling the identified pegmatites and outcropping ridges which were not previously evaluated by any companies. A total of 87 grab samples were taken during the survey of the properties and the samples have been sent to ALS Minerals Laboratories in Val D’Or, Quebec. The geologists will supply information on the sampling program and issue a report on the work completed with correlating results as soon as they become available.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango, comments, “We would like to thank Nemaska Lithium Inc. for their hospitality and allowing our team to visit their impressive neighbouring Whabouchi property. We would also like to thank the people of the Cree First Nation of Nemaska for taking time to speak with us and providing us with a tour of the community. We are fortunate to be poised for discovery in an area teeming with activity.”

The technical contents of this release were approved by Mr. Donald Theberge P.Eng., M.B.A., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The property has not been the subject of a National Instrument 43-101 report.

Explor Announces Ogden Property Diamond Drilling Results $EXS.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:11 PM on Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Exs_logo

  • 2.06 g/t Au over 1.50 meters from 154.5 to 156.0 meters.
  • 1.99 g/t Au over 1.80 meters from 438.0 to 439.8 meters.

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC–(Aug. 4, 2016) - Explor Resources Inc. (“Explor” or “the Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE:EXS)(OTCQX:EXSFF)(FRANKFURT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) is pleased to announce the results of the Diamond Drilling Program on the Corporation’s Ogden Gold Property. The property is located 12 kilometers southwest of the city of Timmins, Ontario. The property consists of 12 mining claims (96 mineral claim units) covering 1,540 hectares situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden and Price Townships, Ontario. These claims are contiguous to the east of the Corporation’s Timmins Porcupine West Property (the “TPW Property”). This preliminary program consisted of three sets of two holes each. East set was located with an approximate 2 kilometer spacing as shown on the attached plan.

The property has been previously explored by Hollinger Mines, Tex-Sol Exploration, Inmet Mining Corporation, Amax Mineral Exploration, Noranda Exploration and Knick Exploration. The majority of the holes drilled by previous operators were less than 100 meters in length. Historically on the Ogden Property, the only hole that hit significant mineralization was a diamond drill hole by Tex-Sol Exploration in 1965 which returned 6.0 g/t Au over 9.1 m at a shallow depth. Typically on the adjacent TPW Gold Property, higher grade mineralization was intersected below 300 meters of vertical depth requiring drill holes of 500 to 600 meters in length.

The most significant deposits in Timmins are spatially associated with porphyry units that are in proximity to the Porcupine Destor Fault. Also the deposits appear to be also associated with splay faults that trend off and to the North of the Porcupine Destor fault inside an interpreted splay fault corridor. Bearing that in mind, the preliminary exploration program consisted of six NQ holes for a total of 3,648 meters of diamond drilling. The holes averaged 600 meters in length. The preliminary goal of this Diamond Drill program was to test the IP Targets and to identify if the property contained favourable geology to host gold mineralization. The diamond drill program used geophysical targets identified by Explor’s ground geophysical survey as well as IP work conducted by Inmet and Knick Exploration. The program was successful in that all IP targets were intersected. The geological environment identified is very similar to the Corporation’s Timmins Porcupine West Property. As it was the case at TPW property, the rock type intersected included Quartz Feldspar Porphyry (QFP), Mafic Volcanics, and Sulfide zones containing fine grain pyrite mineralization.

The following results were obtained from this first drilling campaign:

Hole #OG-16-02 intersected 2.06 g/t Au over 1.50 meters from 154.5 to 156.0 meters.

Hole #OG-16-05 intersected 1.99 g/t Au over 1.80 meters from 438.0 to 439.8 meters.

Explor plans on analyzing the current results in context with the geological information obtained with this preliminary program and plans an exploration program for the fall/winter drilling season.

Assays are conducted on NQ sized half core sections. The diamond drill core is logged and sampled following general industry practices whereby logged and sample marked core is sawn in half, with one-half bagged and tagged for shipment to the assay laboratory and the remaining half of the sawn core returned to the core box for storage and future reference. Blanks and assay standards are inserted at regular intervals in each sample batch. Assays are conducted using a standard fire assay technique on a 30 gram sample with a gravimetric finish by Laboratoire Expert Inc., of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Routine duplicates are completed by Laboratoire Expert inc. Pulps and rejects are returned and stored in secure containers. Intersections are reported using drilled widths unless specified otherwise, with assay values as simple averages of duplicates and gravimetric results.

Chris Dupont, President and Chief Executive Officer of Explor Resources Inc. commented: “We are extremely pleased and encouraged by these preliminary drill results and the confirmation of the potential of the gold bearing environment. This drilling campaign indicates to us that this large property block could potentially host a major gold deposit, and merits further exploration.”
