Vancouver, BC – TheNewswire – October 21, 2020 – Durango Resources Inc.(TSXV:DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTC:ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango“) is pleased to report that further to its news release dated October 8, 2020, the Company has started an exploration program on the East Barry Property which is located 2km east of the Trove Property at Windfall Lake, Quebec.

The East Barry Property was recently expanded in size and is now 7,740 hectares, bordering Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX:OSK) on the west and Bonterra Resources Inc. (TSXV:BTR) on the north. Durango’s exploration crew was tasked with exploring the East Barry along the 10km long gold in till trend for geological reconnaissance. The crew has also been asked to proceed with a north south Spontaneous Polarity (“SP“) geophysical survey across an area of high interest.

Due to the rehabilitation of old access roads, the exploration team is able to complete geological reconnaissance in areas previously unaccessible on the East Barry Property. New outcrops have been discovered on high ground providing key geological information for the area. During this exploration campaign on the East Barry Property, a mineralized quartz feldspar porphyry (“QFP“) dike associated with quartz veins was discovered (see Figure 1).

Figure 1. QFP dike with 0.5 to 1% pyrite mineralization along the newly cleared road.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango, stated, “Durango’s exploration crew took the opportunity of favourable weather and newly rehabilitated roads to expand the ground exploration program onto the East Barry Property. The East Barry Property has minimal outcrop, so all of the information we can gather on rock exposure is extremely important in order to identify geological similarities with the Windfall Lake deposit and potential mineralization associations. Durango will continue to explore the East Barry Property in the upcoming weeks concurrently with its ongoing drill campaign on the Trove Property. We look forward to analyzing the results in comparison with our neighbours’ data.”

The technical contents of this press release were approved by George Yordanov, professional geologist, an Independent Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The Trove Property has not yet been subject to an NI-43-101 report.

Trove Property, Quebec

Durango owns 100% interest in the Trove claims, which are surrounded by Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX-OSK), in the Windfall Lake area between Val d’Or and Chibougamau, Quebec. The 1,185 hectare property is compelling due to the coincidence of gold found in tills coinciding with magnetic highs, several Induced Polarization anomalies and two faults crosscutting the property. The fault systems north and south of the Trove, control gold mineralization elsewhere, indicating the Trove has excellent exploration potential. Durango received all the final drill permits for the Trove property in September 2019 and is currently undertaking its inaugural drill program.

East Barry Property, Quebec

Durango owns 100% interest in the East Barry claims which run parallel to Trove claims. The East Barry block is over 7,740 hectares in size and borders the eastern perimeter of Osisko’s holdings and the southern perimeter of Bonterra’s holdings and is less than 4km south of the Gladiator deposit. The East Barry claims host a gold trend which covers approximately 10km in length and is subparallel to the main Barry Fault held by Osisko Mining. In 2018, a till sampling program was conducted by Durango and one of the till samples returned forty-two (42) pristine gold grains with reported gold values of 2.184 g/t Au. A high count of pristine gold grains indicates that the gold has travelled a very short distance from its source. The East Barry block underwent an Induced Polarization (“IP“) survey in 2018 which identified a high priority target coincident with the high count of pristine gold grains.

Welcome to be on the press release a production of AGORACOM in which we speak to small cap executives after they puto ut important news. Durango resources trades on the TSX venture on the stock symbol DGO Marcy is the president of the company for those of you new to the store that’s gonna be a lot you can or just come out with it Durango owns a 100 percent interest in the trove claims those are surrounded by a Osisko mining in the windfall lake gold district between val-d’or and Chibougamau I lost of that name Quebec that trolled property is located along the structural trend that’s hosting a Osisko mining’s windfall lake deposit and the Osisko was recently purchased claims along the troll property boundary and those 2 cells along with black along with the black dog gold deposit are tied to the troll property northern boundary off 500 meters away from Durango’s planned drill targets up here to talk about all of that is Marcy welcome back. Good afternoon nice to be here great to have you. You certainly play with big neighbors are you got Osisko all around you. 500 meters of the delivery throw snowball almost at their property their their assets what is it about trove that was so special for you and it’s so special to a Osisko being right around you. Okay well so to be clear the properties aren’t special until we prove that their special which is exactly what we are working on current only I’m the old adage is if you want to find gold go where they’ve already found it which is exactly what we have done that when fully come back home to wrangled holds are small land position in comparison to our big neighbors as a Osisko but realistically you don’t need a huge one position to have a deposit or mind the key is to hold strategically positioned claims which have the best potential to host the school deposits so our true property is special because we’ve got to known gold producing faults running through the property which are great potential indicators for the property just alone on those 2 things today we’ve done humus sampling we’ve done till sampling we’ve done some I. P. and airborne work and currently we’re working on surface trenching and exploration drilling on our natural project so yeah that’s kind of it not so for that for our work so far on the troubled does it but does all that work before you can start it does give you great great comfort knowing that a Osisko is sold nearby and that they’re doing so much work so close to you I’m sure you could probably see them right across the way right yeah well we actually stumbled on and saw one of their drill flags that was just about 300 meters over our property boundary when we were moving around up there so yeah they’re definitely right there and the one that we just stumbled upon we looked up and stuff and it’s one that they have found up to 5 grams per tonne gold so it’s great to know that there’s gold around us so we just have a better potential finding it on our troop property as well which is what we want for not only us but for all of our shareholders to keep everybody happy and making money and do there that number you just reference with all the draws also the Osisko put out last week. On their windfall gold project no the ones they’ve been putting out the last one that I’ve been looking at are the ones that are further north up around their links project which is north of us yet because they’ve got as we know quite a big land position so they’ve got the windfall lake they’ve got the lynx deposit and the black dog and they’re working on and drilling right now and it’s about 5 kilometers north of us so so there’s we’re kind of all around us from this is cool but the one that had the real nice big numbers are is further north of us up around their legs deposit so let’s talk about what you’re doing on troll view just announced drawing out what do you looking to achieve and how big is this for first program going to be. I’m so what we have permanent right now on the troop is for 15 drill holes and we’re gonna methodically go through those drill holes for starting at the holes that are nearest to the Osisko hole that’s like just 300 meters over a border first and then we’re working our way back from there the plan at troops so far is around 2200 meters is what we’ve budgeted but we can R. and drilling contractors to go up to 5000 meters and I’ve given our technical team free reign of the need to go deeper they can feel free to go deeper and as long as they got the permits and stuff on the holes that they’re doing they’ve they’ve got room to move on those holes deeper and if they need to act  mineralization wanna check things out we got the degree drill team up there and we got a great exploration crew and they’ve been busy busy busy and fighting that elements literally it’s been record rains up there this last while also we’ve had machinery getting stuck and things getting Hold to it’s it’s been great fun. So I guess it’s fair to say and I was gonna ask you even though it’s early you know any progress update but I’m assuming you know it’s still way too early for for much of an update their drill results yeah we’re going to be a little bit yet as we all know Covid affected every aspect of the world and this is just another one of them a lot of the labs that we have been talking to and working with they’ve got room at the labs but they don’t have anyone to work in the lab because people are off on the government assistance programs so. It’s slow but we’re expecting our channel samples because we did a lot of mechanical trenching at surface on the truth that we did and the couple 0 sample range so we sent them to 2 different labs and we’re expecting to get those back relatively soon it’s been a while the cruise going up and working on the projects up there since September 3 and we’re getting into almost the middle of October so things will be certain to come back shortly which will begin hopefully we’ll have some good news to report on those before we can get our drill results and it’s finally brought the mechanical trenching because some people think that this is coordinated between it but it’s not in your last press release you actual quote that I want to ask you on that so here’s next okay the results of the mechanical trenching and you just put the result of mechanical trains as much have been eye opening by whatever I see things like that it’s okay I’ve got a drill down further pardon but I’ve been I’ve opening with the discovery of a sizeable northeast years on multiple occasions with quartz veining and pie right at surface and important geological indicators near the initial drill targets not for a lot of people at home they’re not going to stand what that means but it definitely sounds like an enthusiastic what would you say have been I. opening so in layman’s terms maybe you can explain to us why those are it was I opening well I could do layman’s terms because I am a woman I’m not a geologist so. You know I just generally just. So basically yeah the mechanical trenching has been very successful up at virtual property because there is there’s a lot of overburden which is just like a lot of low lying shrubs and small trees that we’ve cleared out and with the trenching we were within a day be able to open everything up so we could see the rocks that were in your service and. We found this in northeast shear zone so why these shear zones are important is they basically run through our troll property and they run up towards one ‘s running out into windfall lake the real little fault and then there’s a very fault that runs up to goes and goes to the gladiator deposit on volunteer resources so this is pretty interesting that we were we can like visibly see it we’ve done airborne surveys we’ve done I. P. which are. A ways away that you can see things from a distance you go up in the air with that magnetic and you can see that as a residence in image yeah and then you can see basically where the the cracking of the earth is and where the rocks are changing direction in which way things are moving which is important because in order for gold to flow up into these places we want where there’s been lots of friction lots of action and and cracking so the gold can flow up into these places and we can now napo and look and say okay the I. P. and airborne survey showed this and we actually can physically see it at surface where it’s coming out and cropping and it lines up perfectly with all the other information that we assume to be true and that was there and now we can literally see okay there it is and it lines up with everything that we’ve done to date so that’s great and the fact that it’s only 75 meters away from one of diet drink goes high priority drill targets is even better so hopefully we’re doubling with the greatest respect numbers when a great surprise right today because if you practice stumbled upon it. Well yes and no we will the reason we planned our drill holes we would spend months and months planning everything in order to try to intersect these things so it’s great to know that we weren’t wrong basically. Yeah well that and that’s that’s a great start let’s hope so while waiting for that to happen so that’s great lot of action and we’re expecting results like start coming back in due time so you’re gonna be back quite a bit in 2020 that’s for sure for one at home windfall lake it’s not just you and the Osisko that’s the most active gold exploration camping Canada from understand and they’re 21 all drill rigs are on site at windfall as of June so. Give everyone a bit of an overview of how big windfall lake is and why it’s white so smart for you to be there okay perfect so yeah basically north of us and surrounding the troll property we have a Osisko mining which everybody here has probably heard of that is interested in Canadian gold mining and the Osisko right now has just over 5000000 ounces I believe that their windfall lake deposit and and Bonterra resources has 838000 ounces at the deposit which is also north of us and then a little further north east of us the gladiator deposit is 1.1000000 ounces and a deposit there and so so far that camp has over 7000000 ounces of indicated and inferred gold resources just in the immediate area of us which is fantastic we do have a common denominator with our one of our neighbors to the north Montero as deal gin is head of our technical team and he was also V. P. acts for volunteer resources and when they discovered that gladiator deposit just north of us so he’s been weighing in and keeping an eye on things and guiding and directing us as we go along with our exploration right now so he’s pretty excited to see what we’re gonna pull out of the ground as well it certainly helps to have some like him along who’s who’s actually been successful discovering gold yes deals in the region if anyone knows how to edit them he’s made like 7 discoveries and one of them is not very far away from us so and he’s also a shareholder of Durango as well as all of the members of our technical team which is which is great yeah I forgot all that something I should mention and I’m glad March to kind of remind me there 40 percent insider ownership including Marcy herself at 16 percent that’s that’s as of the latest numbers you you guys of you all put your money where your mouth is. And that’s a big difference from a lot of companies out there who you know they do the work good companies but the end of the day you know they’re collecting a nice paycheck and not really going for where’s what does it say what should that tell everyone that the manager team the inside there’s a 40 percent insider ownership including 60 percent of that being you. Well like you said if if you wanna if you wanna play you’re gonna have to play big we got big neighbors to play with to put your money where your mouth determined to find a gold deposit and in the past year gold prices have already come up from like 1450 to over 2000 US around so we’ve got a lot of indicators are going in and out definitely if I could be by more right now I would be but well we’re drilling I don’t think it’s prudent for me to be purchasing anymore shares are in the deal but that doesn’t. In July just Canada’s deficit forecast was projected which is the largest deficit shortfall since World War 2 and I just was reading in the headlines yesterday in the U. S. the cost of coal bit is is probably going to be around $16000000000000 which is crazy like almost a full year’s GDP for the USA so this means that our gold prices not going lower anytime soon the flood the feds are just flooding the markets with currency and it’s not just North America it’s this is a global thing not just a global pandemic we’re dealing with we’re dealing with global currency dealings gold star and the global global printing pandemic and that’s what that’s not stopping which means gold and is just going to continue to rise and it’s been great for us juniors it’s been the financings that I’ve seen come out in the last few months are just phenomenal with all the money all these juniors can now hit the bush to get working on our properties that we’ve been waiting so desperately poor and now we’re gonna find out there’s gonna be a lot more new discoveries and so therefore the sharing our prices are gonna be increasing for all these juniors and it’s gonna reward all shareholders like myself and hopefully you and everybody else and everyone was risk their capital and supported all these juniors I think we’re all gonna be winners in the end and Durango is a big part of this Russian we’re super excited we just completed a 2.8Mfinancing which is the biggest in the history of the company now we’ve got money to drill an exploratory parties like we never had before we’ve got a fantastic technical team exploration crew that’s willing to work 24/7 it’s exciting to be part of Durango and so excited and I want everyone who’s a shareholder there to know that our team is giving 110 percent for this program we spent months and months of planning it working on it making sure we had everything just so I actually want to take 1 minute to just say thank you to all of our shareholders and whether you’ve been a shareholder for 2 days are for. 10 years at you guys some of you guys have been in like me for the long haul and I just want to say thank you and I hope that your long wait will not be disappointing. Marcy this is what I love about our videos you just can’t get that kind of raw emotion that kind of leadership through a press release or blog post and I could have actually was gonna ask you a couple more questions about but I want to enter right there because that was powerful I love it and it shows you know that you’re all in on this your passion about it because you’ve you’ve got just the biggest stake as all the other shareholders so it event was motivated to see something great happened for Durango it’s you and thanks to that that was you for me as a shareholder dollars powerful stuff okay let’s get. You’ve been watching or you’ve been listening by podcast Marcy she’s been she’s president CEO of Durango resources as you can tell the governor trades on the TSX venture exchange under the stock symbol DGO now you’ve heard or listen to what Marcy had to say now it’s your turn you gotta do some diligence first thing I wanna do is get to the Durango hubo n AGORACOM specifically the profile page were laid everything out for ya in a great overview summary because we know there’s a lot to absorb here but we’re going to give that first overall summary then go over the Durango side do some deep dive into not only trove but India often windfall lake and up and up and go back to most of the east berry they’ve also discovered property we’ll talk about those next time so there’s a lot there’s a lot below the surface for Durango and hopefully today you’ve discovered your next great small cap gold company thanks for joining us everyone have a fantastic day so next time thanks George.

Affinity Metals $AFF.ca Acquires Windfall North Property $OSK.ca $RKR.ca $MKR.ca $SII.ca $KL.ca $PAAS.ca $TUD.ca $AMK.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 9:00 AM on Monday, October 19th, 2020

Vancouver, British Columbia…Affinity Metals Corp. (TSX-V:AFF) (FRANKFURT: 34IA) (“the Corporation”) (“Affinity”) is very pleased to report that it has acquired, through staking, a mineral property in Quebec, Canada that adjoins Osisko’s world class Windfall Lake project claim holdings. The property has been named the Windfall North. The property consists of 96 mineral tenures spanning 5143.15 hectares and straddles the very prospective main lithological contact and structural trend along strike to the northeast from Osisko’s rapidly growing Windfall Lake deposit within the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt.

Location of Windfall North Property

Abitibi Greenstone Belt
 
The Abitibi Greenstone Belt, along with the Fraser Institute deeming it the 4th most attractive mining jurisdiction in the world, is home to dozens of world class deposits including: Val-d’Or Chibougamau Kirkland Lake Timmins Detour Lake Malartic Bousquet Rouyn-Noranda Larder Lake The Abitibi is renowned as the world’s largest mineral-rich greenstone geological belt. The geological structure spans 450 km long by 150 km wide and runs through the Canadian Shield, from west of Timmins, Ontario, then eastward to Chibougamau, Quebec. The region’s history hosts over 100 mines that have aggregately produced an excess of 170 million ounces of gold. While the belt is known primarily for its prolific gold mines, base metal production in the region is also substantial at over 400 million ounces of silver, 15 billion tons of copper, and 35 billion tons of zinc.
 
Osisko’s Windfall Lake Gold Deposit
 
The Windfall Lake Project is reportedly one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada and continues to grow as more discoveries are made. Osisko recently reported Windfall Lake indicated resources of 2.39 million tonnes at 9.1 g/t Au (1,206,000 oz. gold) and inferred resources of 10.61 million tonnes at 8.4 g/t. (3,938,000 oz. gold).  Osisko has defined the resource approximately 2000m on strike and 1500m depth, and continues to drill at an impressive pace. They hit the million meter drilling mark earlier this year in anticipation of an updated resource estimate in the later part of 2020 and a feasibility study to come out next summer.
 
In 2018, a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) forecast was done on the Windfall Lake Project. At the time it contained  around 3 million oz. gold. As it stood then , it would cost $397 million to build the mine that would produce an average of 218,000 oz. gold annually, over 8.1 years. The study projected an after-tax internal rate of return of 32.7% and a net present value of $413.2 million using a discount rate of 5%.
 
The PEA in 2018, indicated Windfall had very strong economics with a $1,300 gold price and a 6.7 g/t gold grade deposit. With gold in the $1,900’s and an inferred resource estimate of 9.1 g/t Au, the Windfall project has exponentially grown in value. The region will become even more profitable by the means of a 30-year Grande Alliance agreement. The agreement covers road, rail, port and power infrastructure in the region, including a powerline from Lebel-sur-Quévillon directly to the Windfall site.
 
Mick Carew of Haywood Securities commented in a northern miner article (dated May 29, 2019), on the growing results, and states they “reflect the continued assertion that Windfall is part of a larger, dynamic gold mineralized system” and “demonstrate the significant exploration potential beyond the immediate footprint of the current Windfall resource.”
 
Selected high-grade drill intercepts from Osisko’s Windfall program (last 12 months):
143 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-19-2197-W1
153 g/t Au over 3.4 metres in WST-19-0234
376 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in WST-20-0310
199 g/t Au over 5.0 metres in WST-20-0312
34.8 g/t Au over 10.4 metres in OSK-W-20-2266-W1
171 g/t Au over 2.5 metres in WST-20-0463
173 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-20-2139-W8
21.0 g/t Au over 13.0 metres in OSK-W-2256-W1
115 g/t Au over 5.6 metres in OSK-W-20-2256-W2
1475 g/t Au over 4.6 metres in OSK-W-19-1731-W2
 
Windfall North Property Geology

Affinity’s North Windfall claims are located along the contact of a dioritic gneiss terrain and a granitic terrains. It is strategically positioned directly along the Windfall and Romeo faults and is located approximately 9 km NNE from Osisko’s Windfall Lake project. The Windfall fault, which is interpreted to represent the ductile level root feeder system that plumbs and controls the location of Osisko’s Windfall deposit model, is interpreted to continue northeast into Affinity’s Windfall North claim holdings along strike where it diverges into two separate structural traces and subducts beneath the granitic pluton.

Affinity staked the North Windfall claims based on the interpreted northeast trend of the Windfall Lake Fault from the Windfall Lake gold deposit and plans to conduct a geological and geophysical data compilation in order to generate drill targets.

Durango Resources (TSXV:DGO)  Resources is positioned to make the next gold discovery in Windfall Lake, Quebec. Drilling has commenced on the Trove property and Durango management eagerly awaits the results. The Trove property is in close proximity to Osisko’s Windfall Camp where Osisko acquired 2 claims along the boundary (in addition to their existing 12,000+ hectares in the area) with Durango’s Trove property. Years of exploration lead Durango to delineate 2 known gold producing faults with 15 drill holes targeting mineralization on the property.

Durango has multiple areas that are prospective for another discovery in the Windfall Lake Camp, so grab your favorite beverage and enjoy learning about how Durango could be the next SmallCap discovery in Windfall Lake.

DGO: TSXV

Durango Resources (TSX.V-DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTCQB -ATOXF) is an exploration company planning on making a gold discovery in the Windfall Lake gold camp of Quebec.

Durango’s land in the Camp demonstrates a high probability of having gold in the ground. The Trove and East Barry properties have seen multiple methods of exploration helping to guide and pinpoint areas that require drilling for gold. Durango has been guided expertly by both management, its technical team and its peers for the discoveries previously made in the Windfall camp. Recent step out drilling expanded high grade gold at Windfall, with 2.4m of 391g/t gold Windfall.

Osisko dominates the land position and are responsible for the discovery of the Windfall deposit, which has expanded into a resource of 1.2 million ounces of high-grade gold and helped to create a new gold camp in Canada. Their deposit is world-class scale and Osisko shows no sign of slowing down exploration anywhere on their sizeable land position as they continue with 19 drills operating in 2020 and surround Durango with over 2.8 million ounces of gold.

Durango may be in the shadows of a larger entity, but that doesn’t make their properties any less valuable. Durango doesn’t need to be bigger to be better and Trove and East Barry properties show high probability of having gold in multiple areas. Trove only needs to be drilled to determine how much. 

Durango is backed by a regionally experienced technical staff that has made their own discoveries in the Windfall camp, and management that have purposely supported the company for this strategic land to have its moment. Durango aims to prove that bigger isn’t always better, and that small cap exploration companies can make market grabbing discoveries.  2020 is the year Durango makes a discovery.

Here are the 3 things you need to know

The Trove Property is Drill Ready.

100% Owned Trove property located in Windfall Lake, Quebec has been systematically explored in preparation of a drill program. There have been many technical studies completed on the property and they all point in the same direction, that Trove is drill ready. There are currently 15 high-priority drill locations already prepared. Surrounded by Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX: OSK) Trove has excellent exploration potential, especially as Osisko drilled along the Trove border in 5 separate areas in 2018, encountering mineralization in all and having one hole in particular that stood out with 5 grams of gold in the sample.  The Trove property is strategically located directly south of the Retriever and Black Dog projects of Osisko and hosts two major gold bearing faults. Osisko has identified gold on multiple sides of the Trove property through recent drilling.

Durango’s exploration team has completed its initial 2020 reconnaissance program and has prepared Trove for the 2020 summer drill program. Durango has identified 15 drill targets in 4 different zones on the Trove Property to test 3 separate studies all pointing toward a potential gold discovery.

Durango Resources may not have the size to match Osisko, they do however have the exploration potential to compete in the discovery department with Trove and East Barry, that border Osisko property boundaries. 

 2. The Windfall Camp is Not Done Making Discoveries

Quebec is ranked 4th best jurisdiction for mining investment in the world (Fraser Institute, 2019), due largely to the exploration success Osisko, and other companies have contributed to the area. Durango wholly owns its Trove project, surrounded by gold deposits hosting over 2.8M ounces of gold and is strategically located directly south of the Retriever and Black Dog projects. The Trove property hosts two major gold bearing faults which is prime real estate for holding economic gold deposits.

This from a 2017 Northern Miner Article describing mineralization in the area:

….“While we expect the Windfall deposit itself to double in size from the 1.6 million oz. already defined, it is the adjacent targets, including Fox, Lynx and Black Dog, that have caught our attention, suggesting the Urban-Barry project area could represent a district-scale play in Quebec,” Carew added.

June 2017: https://www.northernminer.com/news/osisko-mining-banks-big-winnings-windfall/1003786483/

The Windfall Camp is not done making gold discoveries.

 3. Technical Committee and Management Support

You can’t make a discovery without people and know how to do it. The Windfall Camp has proven there is tremendous amounts of gold buried in the ground, with lots more to be found. Gold, however, doesn’t find itself. For that you need the people and know how to understand where to start looking before committing hard earned shareholder capital on expensive, sometimes, failed drill campaigns.
This is where Dale Ginn gets to help guide Durango. An experienced mining executive and geologist for over 30 years participated in numerous gold and base metal discoveries, many of which are in production today, including the Gladiator Deposit by Bonterra in the Windfall Camp. Dale has the prerequisite experience to coordinate and define an exploration program leading up to a discovery. He has done it before and may accomplish again with Durango.

Lastly, shareholders are thankful to have Marcy Kiesman at the helm of Durango. Ms. Kiesman has routinely supported the company and owns close to 16% of the company. Ms. Kiesman is one of the leading ladies in the exploration business today and has put together an all-female management team positioning Durango toward Discovery.

Vancouver, BC – TheNewswire – October 8, 2020 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSXV:DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTC:ATOXF), (the ” Company ” or ” Durango “) is pleased to report that further to its news release dated September 11, 2020, mechanical trenching has identified additional areas of interest on its Trove Property at Windfall Lake, Quebec

Figure 1 – Mineralized contact volcanic-sediment with carbonate alteration

The new outcrops are located within 100 metres from the first series of planned drill holes on the Trove Property which are designed to test continuity of mineralized trend between two drill intersections of Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX-OSK) ( OSK-UB-18-083 intersected 1.03 g/t Au and 5.13 g/t Au, OSK-UB-18-085 intersected 1.85 g/t Au) as well as near surface geophysical targets with coincident till with gold grains and gold anomalies in the rock samples. The new outcrop is in proximity of the northeast shear zone and is a contact zone of the volcanics and sediments. Mineralization was observed in a felsic dike with pyrite in quartz veining and carbonate alteration on the newly stripped outcrops.

Durango’s technical team recently discovered a northeast trending shear zone on the Trove Property as announced on September 11, 2020. In the Windfall Lake deposit area, the volcanic rocks are intruded by a series of felsic dikes near contacts between volcanic and sediments which host quartz veins with pyrite. The team has also confirmed an important regional deformation northeast shear with carbonate alteration in the wall rock zones that delineate the structural domains.

Additional mineralization was also seen in the nearby sediments represented by pyrite, pyrrhotite and molybdenite in alteration zone (silica, biotite, chlorite and carbonate) including to quartz-carbonate veins.

Channel samples were taken from this new area of interest and have been sent for assay to the SGS Canada lab in Val d’Or, Quebec.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango, stated, “I would like to thank Durango’s exploration crew for such a great job on Phase I of our fall exploration program at Windfall Lake. The results in the mechanical trenching this month have been eye opening with the discovery of a sizable northeast shear zone, multiple locations with quartz veining and pyrite at surface and important geological indicators near the initial drill targets. The results to date highlight both the quality of our team to quickly perform grass roots work and the potential of our Trove Property at Windfall Lake. We look forward to the analysis of the field data in hopes to continue exploration and drilling into the winter months.”

The technical contents of this press release were approved by George Yordanov, professional geologist, an Independent Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The Trove Property has not yet been subject to an NI-43-101 report.

Trove, Quebec

Durango owns 100% interest in the Trove claims, which are surrounded by Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX-OSK), in the Windfall Lake area between Val d’Or and Chibougamau, Quebec. The 1,185 hectare property is compelling due to the coincidence of gold found in tills coinciding with magnetic highs, several Induced Polarization anomalies and two faults crosscutting the property. The fault systems north and south of the Trove, control gold mineralization elsewhere, indicating the Trove has excellent exploration potential. Durango received all the final drill permits for the Trove property in September 2019 and is undertaking its inaugural drill program.

Osisko Mining Inc. announced results from the continuing drill program at its 100-per-cent-owned Windfall gold project located in the Abitibi greenstone belt in Urban township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec, where step out drilling has expanded high grade gold at Windfall, with 2.4m of 391g/t gold Windfall.

What a great intercept, proof that there is gold at Windfall, and Durango is aiming to prove its own deposits with initial drilling having begun on their 100% owned property.

  • Durango’s Trove property borders Osisko and is 100% owned
  • Collars of several holes that have intersected gold are 15km from Osiskos results
  • Durango has already begun drilling Trove, where Osisko has previously returned 5g/t gold 300 meters from the Trove border with Osisko

Do your DD and read below why Durango might be the next High Grade gold intercept at Windfall Lake

Durango Begins Drilling on Trove Property at Windfall Lake, QC

Vancouver, BC – October 6, 2020 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSXV:DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTC:ATOXF), (the ” Company ” or ” Durango “) is pleased to report that further to its news release dated September 17, 2020, drilling is now underway on the Trove Property at Windfall Lake, Quebec.

Due to the limited outcrops in the area, Durango has relied to date on surface geochemistry and induced polarization (” IP “) for planning its 2020 drill program. New mechanical stripping on the northeast extremity of the Trove Property has strongly contributed to confirm and more accurately define carbonate-altered pyrite mineralized zones.

Durango has designed the 2020 drill program to test the lithological contacts between the units associated structures and shear zones. The initial drill holes on the Trove Property are planned to confirm a mineralized trend between two drill intersections ( OSK-UB-18-083 intersected 1.03 g/t Au and 5.13 g/t Au, OSK-UB-18-085 intersected 1.85 g/t Au) and to test near surface geophysical targets based on chargeability highs of the IP anomalies conducted in 2019 and coincident with gold in till.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango, stated, “Durango’s exploration team and drilling crew are excited that drilling has commenced after months of preparation. Surface results to date on the Trove Property have been very promising with the discovery of a sizable northeast shear zone, contact, alteration and quartz veining at surface near the initial drill targets. Within the Trove Property limits, there are no recorded drill holes, so our team is looking forward to drill testing the geophysical anomalies, shear zones and vein structures on the Trove Property.”

The technical contents of this press release were approved by George Yordanov, professional geologist, an Independent Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The Trove Property has not yet been subject to an NI-43-101 report.

Affinity Metals $AFF.ca Acquires Carscallen Extension Property Immediately Adjacent to Melkior-Kirkland Lake Carscallen Project $TUD.ca $GTT.ca $AMK.ca $OSK.ca $RKR.ca $MKR.ca $SII.ca $KL.ca $PAAS.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 9:00 AM on Monday, October 5th, 2020

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 5, 2020) – Affinity Metals Corp. (TSXV: AFF) (FSE: 34IA) (“the Corporation”) (“Affinity”) is very pleased to report that it has entered into an option agreement to earn up to a 100% interest in the Carscallen Extension property located immediately adjacent to the Melkior Resources- Kirkland Lake Gold Carscallen Project approximately 25 km west of Timmins, Ontario, Canada. Affinity’s Carscallen Extension property consists of 47 claim units covering approximately 940 hectares.

Melkior’s Carscallen property has gained considerable attention in recent months since Kirkland Lake Gold (“KL”) first entered into negotiations to join with Melkior in advancing the property. On September 30th, 2020, Melkior closed a strategic partnership with KL in an option deal worth up to $110 million. The confidence of a major producer like KL entering into an agreement of this size is very promising and shows the potential of this newly discovered gold system.

The Carscallen hosts high-grade gold and has strong indications of a base metal volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) system. In a news release dated June 26th, 2020, Melkior reported that to date, they have delineated a potential 800m striking gold system running NW-SE through the Zam Zam and Shenkman Gold Zones that is also open in both directions. The Affinity Carscallen Extension property borders Melkior’s property to the north and is located on trend approximately 1000m NW of the presently defined gold system with similar underlying geology.

Melkior’s Carscallen property and Affinity’s Carscallen Extension property are located on the western end of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, in the geopolitically stable and resource friendly province of Ontario. Along with the Frasier Institute deeming it the 4th most attractive mining jurisdiction in the world, the Abitibi Greenstone Belt is home to dozens of world class deposits, and has reportedly produced in excess of 170 million ounces of gold, 400 million ounces of silver, 15 billion tons of copper, and 35 billion tons of zinc.

Affinity previously entered into an option agreement for the West Timmins property with the same arm’s length party that also holds the Carscallen Extension property. The West Timmins property was recently drilled by Affinity. An existing single shallow drill hole was extended to 525m in depth in an effort to accomplish two objectives: 1) to test the validity and accuracy of the Stargate Acoustic EM technology to delineate geological contacts, more specifically to define the extent of granite caps which commonly mask the underlying geology within the west Timmins region, and 2) to test the geology immediately beyond the granite cap.

The technology was able to predict the contact where the granitic cap terminated in the hole. This ability to potentially map granitic intrusions and caps at depth, where other geophysical techniques have failed, has far reaching positive implications and potentially opens up many possibilities for increasing exploration success in granitic environments within the Timmins camp and elsewhere.

The geological environment to the 525m depth drilled did not produce any significant precious metal values in the core samples that were assayed.

Given the recent Melkior-KL partnership, and after considerable examination of the regional data specific to the immediate vicinity around Melkior’s Carscallen Project, it was determined that Affinity’s immediate focus and priority should shift away from the Timmins West property to the south and instead to secure the northern Carscallen Extension project and pursue a more aggressive exploration program on this property located on trend to the north and much closer to Melkior’s recent work that attracted KL to the Carscallen property.

The relationship that Affinity has developed with the owners holding both the Timmins West and Carscallen Extension properties allowed us the flexibility to have optionality between priorities and projects. The Timmins West property option has now been terminated with no cash or share payments having been made, and the Carscallen Extension project has effectively replaced the previous agreement. Affinity has the opportunity to enter into a new option agreement and return to the Timmins West property at the discretion of the optionor but Affinity may not hold both the Timmins West and Carscallen Extension properties concurrently. Affinity’s present and immediate focus is now to advance the Carscallen Extension property.

Rob Edwards, Affinity CEO & President stated: “As the Carscallen Extension property immediately adjoins the Melkior-Kirkland Lake Carscallen project to the north, and also clearly appears to be on trend with the gold system that Melkior has defined to date and believes to be open for expansion, we believe the Carscallen Extension to be the most prospective property within the immediate region associated with this exciting partnership project. We very much appreciate the flexibility afforded us by the holders of the Timmins West and Carscallen Extension properties and for their confidence in Affinity in allowing us to secure the Carscallen Extension property and to shift focus and capitalize on the recent Kirkland Lake developments and associated potential.”

The terms of the Carscallen Extension option agreement are as follows:

Granting of 70% option:

In order for Affinity to earn a 70% interest in the property, within 6 months of Exchange approval of the option agreement:
