  • Identified pegmatite outcrops on Durango’s Nemaska Whabouchi area properties
  • Compilation report is now complete
  • New satellite images were acquired which displayed outcropping of pegmatites

Vancouver, BC / July 5, 2016 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that further to the news release of June 27, 2016, where Mr. Donald Theberge, P.Eng., M.B.A identified pegmatite outcrops on Durango’s Nemaska Whabouchi area properties, the compilation report is now complete.

During Mr. Theberge’s compilation of information on Durango’s ground adjacent to and near the proposed Whabouchi Lithium Mine in Quebec, new satellite images were acquired which displayed outcropping of pegmatites on Durango’s properties. It has been confirmed that upon examination of the high definition satellite photos, newly identified outcrops and outcropping ridges were not previously evaluated by Tucana or any other company.

The conclusion of Mr. Donald Theberge, P.Eng., M.B.A, was that all of the “blocks of property are located in a fertile environment for lithium-bearing pegmatites, and also for gold and base metals with the EM anomalies.” It is highly recommended that exploration work is initiated immediately starting with a mapping and sampling program.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango, comments, “We are very pleased to see that each of Durango’s properties have confirmed pegmatite outcrops from the satellite photos, and more importantly, that they were not previously visited or sampled during the Tucana survey. This increases the odds of success for Durango and advances its position for discovery in the Nemaska region. The final details of the exploration program are now underway and updates will be announced as they become available.”

Additionally, further to the news release of June 30th, 2016, the non-flow through Financing has closed its second tranche and has now reached a total issuance of 2,510,000 non-flow through units at a price of $0.10 per unit for gross proceeds of $251,000. Each unit is composed of one common share and one warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share at an exercise price of 15 cents per warrant for a period of one year from closing. The Company will pay a finder’s fee of $9,000 cash and 90,000 finders warrants in connection with the non-flow through financing. All securities under the placement are subject to a four month hold period from the date of closing and are subject to final TSX Venture Exchange approval.

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.
