  • 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.

Tartisan Resources Corp. Signs an LOI for the Purchase of the Ichuna Copper-Silver Property in Peru $TTC.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:20 AM on Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Tartisan logo copy

  • Signed a letter of intent with Duran Ventures Inc.  for the purchase of the Ichuña Copper-Silver property in Peru
  • Recently entered into an LOI with Duran regarding the purchase of the Don Pancho property

Toronto, Ontario – Tartisan Resources Corp. (CSE: TTC) (“Tartisan”, or the “Company”) Tartisan Resources Corp. (“Tartisan” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has signed a letter of intent (“LOI”) with Duran Ventures Inc. (V-DRV) for the purchase of the Ichuña Copper-Silver property (“Ichuña” or the “Project”) in Peru. Tartisan recently entered into an LOI with Duran regarding the purchase of the Don Pancho property (see Company’s new release dated February 22, 2017).

Tartisan has entered into an agreement with Duran to acquire 100% of the Ichuña Copper-Silver property in Peru located in the department of Moquegua, 825 kilometres southwest of Lima, comprising one concession of 1000 hectares. More specifically, the Ichuña property is located 120 kilometres northeast of Arequipa and is contiguous to the San Gabriel Project, previously called the Chucapaca Project, a gold-silver discovery announced in 2010 through a joint venture with Goldfields Ltd. and Compañia de Minas Buenaventura (“Buenaventura”). An initial resource of 83.7 MT, 1.9 g/t Au, 8.2 g/t Ag and 0.09% Cu for an 5.6 million equivalent Au ounces was published in May 2010*. *(https://www.goldfields.co.za/med_news_article.php?articleID=592)

In August 2014, Buenaventura announced the purchase of Goldfield’s 51-per-cent interest in the San Gabriel Project for $81-million (U.S.) and a 1.5% net smelter royalty (“NSR”) on all metal sales. Currently Buenaventura is proposing an underground mine at the project, specifically on the Canahuire gold zone, located approximately three kilometres to the south of the Ichuña project.

Duran acquired the 1000 hectare Ichuña concession in 2006 before the discovery at San Gabriel. Extensive high grade surface Cu-Ag mineralization was initially observed by Duran’s geologists and was later followed up by a property wide geophysical survey in 2010. The work identified a large IP geophysical anomaly trending northwest-southeast measuring over 1,500 metres in length. It is important to note that the discovery of the Canahuire zone was a blind target with a strong geophysical response. Economic mineralization in the Canahuire zone does not outcrop at surface and follows a recessive area. The geophysical anomaly on Ichuña has similar characteristics to the Canahuire zone.

Duran optioned the property to a third party in 2013 and limited work was undertaken, which included seven diamond drill holes totaling 2,754 metres. Drilling focused only along intrusive and limestone contact(s) where access and community agreements were in place. The drilling did not return significant results along this contact. More importantly, the IP target was not tested adequately as only one hole collared at the most south western tip was completed. A program of more detailed geophysics and diamond drilling is planned to test this extremely interesting target.

The agreement will permit Tartisan to acquire a 100% undivided interest in the Project by paying a total $50,000 and issuing 500,000 common shares by May 17, 2017. Upon completion of 5,000 metres of drilling and/or underground development, a further 150,000 shares are payable, and if a National Instrument 43-101-compliant resource is published, a further 150,000 shares are payable, and if the Company loses control of the project either by sale or joint venture, a further 200,000 shares are payable to Duran. Duran will retain a 2%NSR, of which half (1%) can be purchased by Tartisan for US$500,000.

Tartisan Resources Corp. common shares are listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE:TTC). Currently, there are 63,287,629 shares outstanding (82,759,982 fully diluted).

For further information on Tartisan, please contact Mr. D. Mark Appleby, President & CEO and a Director of the Company, at 416-804-0280 (mark@tartisanresources.com).

St-Georges to Acquire All Outstanding Shares of Iceland Resources EHF $SX.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 1:33 PM on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Sx hub logo

  • Entered into a binding agreement with Iceland Resources ehf to acquire all its outstanding shares
  • Iceland Resources owns multiple polymetallic exploration & development projects in Iceland and has direct or indirect access to all active mineral tenure, claims and mineral leases in Iceland

Montreal, Quebec / November 22, 2016 – St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (CSE: SX)(OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding agreement with Iceland Resources ehf to acquire all its outstanding shares. Iceland Resources owns multiple polymetallic exploration & development projects in Iceland and has direct or indirect access to all active mineral tenure, claims and mineral leases in Iceland.

The Opportunity

Iceland Resources ehf is a privately-owned Icelandic corporation with gold/silver/copper/cobalt/zinc projects in Iceland.

Iceland is an important producer and developer of geothermal energy. St-Georges management has been active over the last few years in Iceland with the goal of securing access to geothermal operations to test the development of technologies allowing the extraction of lithium and light minerals from the brines being pumped from the geothermal wells and for the extraction of a large variety of precious and base metals found in the mud rejected from the same operations.

Enrico Di Cesare, Director of St-Georges commented: “(…) With St-Georges focused on innovative extraction technologies and working on strategic alliances with several providers, this opportunity is exciting; it is an excellent platform to apply new technologies, monetize tailings and demonstrate our solutions which also address environmental issues. The focus is to economically recover precious and base metals and to provide an avenue for positive environmental remediation of the by-products. St-Georges is also looking at niche and value added products that this opportunity lends itself to.”

Terms of Acquisition

St-Georges will create a subsidiary that will become the owner of Iceland Resources. 40% of this subsidiary will be owned by the Iceland Resources shareholders and the remaining 60% will be owned by St-Georges. Additionally, St-Georges makes the following commitments:

-Issuing 6,000,000 common shares of St-Georges to Iceland shareholders with a 12-month escrow release schedule;

-Issuing a $350,000 debenture, bearing a 6% annual interest (cash or shares), maturing in November 2026 to be distributed to Iceland shareholders and some creditors; and

-$1,000,000 of expenditure on the Iceland assets over the next 24 months, including mineral exploration expenses and metallurgical process research & development.

Iceland Resources Projects

Iceland Resources currently has 9 defined mineral exploration and development projects in Iceland (8 licenses or license applications held directly and one within a Joint-Venture). Other opportunities are being sought after with the collaboration of St-Georges (with the possibility to deploy St-Georges technologies result from its R&D initiatives).

St-Georges intends to direct most of its efforts in the next 24 months to 3 priority projects:

Reykjanes Project (EL 01) (Au-Ag-Cu-Zn)

The 897.5 km2Reykjanes licence area is in close proximity to the capital Reykjavik and the international airport in the town of Keflavik and is supported by good transport infrastructure with main highways running through it. The project is prospective for gold, silver, copper, zinc and cobalt. The Company also plans to apply for licenses to evaluate the lithium potential of the geothermal brines present on the property.

Figure 1. The Reykjanes Project

The Thormodsdalur Project (EL-14) (Au-Ag-Cu)

Thormodsdalur is located about 20km east of the city centre of Reykjavik and south-east of the lake Hafravatn. The project was discovered in 1908. The property produced mineral concentrate from 1911 to 1925 when over 300 meters of tunnels where dug alongside surface excavations. The ore recovered was transported to Germany and historic sources reported values ranging between 11g/t and 315g/t Au. Note: All information pertaining to mineral resources, grades or operational results herewith presented are historical in nature and while relevant, the information was obtained from sources that cannot be independently verified and that are not compliant with National Instrument 43-101 reporting standards.

More recently, visible gold was seen in cores from geothermal wells located on the project. This new discovery compelled the Icelandic government to create a mining entity for gold exploration in Iceland called Malmis.

Studies between 2005 and 2013 identified the project mineralization as a low sulphidation system containing banded chalcedony and ginguro. Petrographic analysis of the vein material identified gold occurring in its free form and as part of an assemblage with pyrite and chalcopyrite. Petrographic and XRD studies show an evolution of the vein system from the zeolite assemblage to quartz adularia and lastly to minor calcite. In the area, 32 holes have been drilled for a total of 2439 meters.Gold values vary from less than 0.5 ppm to the maximum of 415 ppm. (These values were obtained from selected random intervals and cannot be construed to be representative of the any particular thickness or overall length).

Iceland Resources entered in to a Joint Venture agreement with Melmi ehf, Malmis hf (majority government owned) and Gold Island Limited. Melmi is the owner of the Thormodsdalur license that was first granted in October 2004. Melmi is owned by Malmis (51%) and Gold Island (49%).

Figure 2. The Thormodsdalur Project

The Vopnafjordur Project (EL-05) (Au-Ag-Te) (Bi-Co-Sb-Se-Zn)

The Vopnafjordur licence covers 598.5 km2(Maps, fig. 3 & 4) and is valid until July 2021. Exploration in Vopnafjordur was carried out by Malmis between 1991 and 1993 in the form of BLEG surveys and vein sampling. Follow-up work was carried out by Melmi in 1997, which carried out stream sediment and helicopter-assisted rock chip sampling in the Vopnafjordur area. The rock chip sampling programme focused on areas of strong alteration, known quartz-carbonate-pyrite veining and in selected structural settings. The sampling programme indicated anomalous antimony, selenium and tellurium values in the northern rhyolitic centre and further identified anomalous gold, antimony, bismuth and zinc in an acid intrusion in the central southern part of the licence.

Recently, a comprehensive review of the BLEG and rock chip sampling programme was undertaken alongside satellite interpretation of the whole of the Vopnafjordur licence and a short exploration program in August 2016. In addition to the two volcanic centres identified in the 1990s, a number of regional fault zones associated with elevated levels of key pathfinder elements and occasionally gold was identified. The geological team is expecting assay results shortly.

These areas will be investigated further by the Company’s geological team in 2017, which will carry out close-spaced traverse mapping and grab sampling of key fault structures identified by previous exploration.

Icelandic Geology is unique and considered relatively young in geology term. Iceland lies in the divergent boundaries of the Mid Atlantic Ridge. The buoyancy of the Iceland plume leads to dynamic uplift of the Iceland plateau, and high volcanic productivity over the plume has developed an anomalous volume of volcanic material and magma chambers at depth.

Iceland has not been thoroughly mapped and geological exploration has been limited when compared to other jurisdictions. St-Georges now have the unencumbered opportunity to explore Iceland’s potential starting with its most known prospective target sites with data generated from existing geological work and geothermal operations around the country. Furthermore, St-Georges technologies should enable the team of Iceland Resources to unlock the potential for prospective lithium brines and mud tailings that were not considered in the past.

Vilhjalmur Thor Vilhjalmsson, director of Iceland Resources, commented: “The opportunity to combine the resources of both companies, our extensive knowledge of Iceland and its geology and the addition of St-Georges team’s expertise in metallurgical processing and eco-mining environmental friendly solutions, provides a unique offering to the market and stakeholders of both companies (…) St-Georges brings a portfolio of R&D initiatives aimed at reducing the environmental impact of mining activities and improving producers’ financial bottom line. Iceland like the Scandinavian countries is a place of certainty in regulations and mining law with reliable and accessible data available from government bodies thus opening possibilities to get additional licenses with historical data available similar to work previously done in Iceland as well as in Greenland (…) we believe that we found a good home for our shareholders in St-Georges and we are excited at the prospect of the proposed 2017 exploration and development campaigns.”

General Disclaimer: The current press release contains references to mineral sampling results that are provided by Iceland Resources or were sourced in the geological literature published by the Icelandic government or its departments. St-Georges has not sampled and analysed these samples. Readers should exercise caution as real width, depth or length of the mineralisation encounter is not defined.

Located in Cochise County, southeast Arizona, the 42 square mile Tombstone Super Project area of interest includes the Company’s premier property, the Hay Mountain Project (“Hay Mountain”). Hay Mountain is a multi-target, multi-metal, variable depth exploration project for porphyry copper — gold — moly and multiple potential by product metals including lead, zinc, manganese, silver (?), uranium, thorium, and rare earth elements. Surface studies (geochemistry, geophysics, x-ray fluorescence) indicate the potential for discovery of a high grade and large sediment and porphyry hosted copper, gold, and moly ore body of the same type as the nearby Bisbee deposit and other commercially important ore bodies throughout southeast Arizona. Liberty Star plans to engage in exploratory drilling as soon as possible.

The East Silver Bell Porphyry Copper Project (“Silver Bell”) is located in Pima County, northwest of Tucson, Arizona within the Silver Bell Mining District. Asarco Mining operates open-pit mines and a solvent extraction plant (SXEW) about 4 ½ miles west of the Silver Bell property. The Company maintains claims covering a previously unrecognized porphyry copper center. The claims currently are within the Ironwood National Monument, established after the claims were staked.

The exploration-stage North Pipes Super Project is located in Mohave County, northwest Arizona near the Utah border on the Arizona Strip. The US Geological Survey notes the Arizona Strip is rich in uranium bearing breccia pipes. While uranium is the most commercially important metal, the pipes contain numerous other metals including copper, silver, vanadium, molybdenum, cobalt and nickel. Exploration at North Pipes is for high-grade uranium ore bodies that can be mined economically by underground methods. Eleven claims have been retained over what geophysically appears to be a very large or perhaps a triple breccia pipe.

  • Completed its sampling program at its 100%-owned Dianna Lake Silver Prospect near Uranium City, Saskatchewan
  • Program was successful in its goal of identifying and sampling the historic pits, Pit #1, Pit #2, Pit #6, and Pit #7
  • Designated as high-priority targets due to their anomalously high silver and copper values

Vancouver, BC / July 26, 2016 - Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its sampling program at its 100%-owned Dianna Lake Silver Prospect near Uranium City, Saskatchewan.

The program was successful in its goal of identifying and sampling the historic pits, Pit #1, Pit #2, Pit #6, and Pit #7, which were designated as high-priority targets due to their anomalously high silver and copper values. The historical trench map illustrating these targets is shown below in Figure 1.

A total of 51 channel and grab samples were taken during the survey of the property. Samples have been sent to Activation Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario for analysis and assay results are expected to be received within approximately two weeks.

Readers are directed to Durango’s news release dated July 13, 2016, for full details on the exploration plan and targets.

About the Dianna Lake Silver Prospect

Durango’s Dianna Lake Silver Prospect covers a historical area in which, from 1968 to 1969, two high-grade, primarily native silver-bearing exploration targets of between 30,000 and 50,000 tonnes grading five to 10 ounces per ton silver, approximately 600 metres apart, were determined by trench grab sample assays, according to a 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.

Additionally, the main silver-bearing zone is spatially associated with a large zone of low-grade, disseminated copper-silver mineralization in which “drilling of two IP anomalies indicated approximately five million tonnes averaging 0.4 ounce per ton Ag and 0.4 per cent Cu” (undefined category historical resource estimate), according to the same report (1) **.

** A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves and the issuer is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources or reserves. Further work must be carried out to verify all historical information before a resource estimate is possible.

Fourteen additional induced polarization anomalies in the historical exploration area surrounding Dianna Lake and the nearby Doug Lake remain yet undrilled, according to the Comaplex Resources report (1), four of which occur within the property boundary of Durango’s Dianna Lake silver project.

Previous work on the claims was reported in 1969, 1980 and 1998 and included diamond drill holes, trenches, and pits primarily across two zones where mineralization was identified at or near surface. One zone was reported to have five trenches exposing Ag-Cu mineralization over approximately 80 metres. Historical grab samples from Pit 1 of this zone included ounce-per-ton silver values of 2,458.4, 684.4, 647.4, 600.2, 464.2, and 454.8 ounces per ton Ag. Out of 18 grab samples, 13 samples assayed between 185.0 and 2,458.4 ounces per ton. Pit 2 grab samples returned reported highs of 298.0 and 197.0 ounce per ton Ag (out of seven samples ranging from 12.2 to 298.0 ounces per ton Ag) (1). (The Company cautions that grab samples are selective and may not be representative of the mineralization on the property.)

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

  • Commencing a sampling program this coming week at its 100%-owned Dianna Lake Silver Prospect near Uranium City, Saskatchewan
  • Sampling and mapping program will commence on July 17, 2016 and will take place over approximately one week

Vancouver, BC / July 13, 2016 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) is pleased to announce that it will be commencing a sampling program this coming week at its 100%-owned Dianna Lake Silver Prospect near Uranium City, Saskatchewan.

The Company confirms that the sampling and mapping program will commence on July 17, 2016 and will take place over approximately one week. The program aims to achieve the following goals:

  • -Verify and expand the area of historical anomalous assay values in and around the main Dianna Lake silver showings at Pit #1, Pit #2, and Pit #6 by means of outcrop mapping and sampling, and channel sampling;-Conduct detailed mapping and sampling across the four undrilled and underexplored historically identified IP (induced polarization) anomalies. Historical drilling of two other IP anomalies on the Dianna Lake property defined the bulk of the current zone of mineralization on the property (1); and-Establish the extent of the copper anomalies identified in Pit #7. Historical samples in this location yielded up to 5.87% Cu and 2.6 oz/t Ag (historical sample of up to 5.87% Cu and 2.6 oz/t Ag (1)).

The following historical samples are summarized in an evaluation report prepared for Comaplex Resources Corporation following a drilling, geophysical, and surface sampling program in 1980 (1). Pit dimensions are summarized in Table 1. Historical assay results for the most significant pits are shown below in their entirety in Table 2a and 2b, with a map of the trench locations shown in Figure 1. All samples from the trenches were recorded as grab samples. No significant work has been reported on the property since this program.
