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.

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.
