Vancouver, BC / November 1, 2016 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) reports that further to its news release of October 25, 2016, it has completed site visits to its wholly owned limestone properties located on the northwest coast of British Columbia.

A small exploration crew evaluated the site logistics and completed a small sampling program on the Smith Island and Mayner’s Fortune properties. The crew accessed the Mayner’s Fortune property by helicopter and nearby logging roads and and accessed the Smith Island property by helicopter. A total of twenty-four samples were taken on the properties and submitted for assay. The results will be provided as they become available.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO comments: “Durango originally obtained the limestone properties in northwestern BC to coincide with the potential LNG facilities which will require limestone for cement and aggregate. However, depending on the grade and quality of limestone, it has many other uses, including as a livestock feed additive and an additive to breads, cereals, toothpaste, papers, plastics, glass, paint, tiles, medicines and cosmetics. We look forward to advancing this compelling opportunity to bring value to our shareholders.”

The past producing Smith Island claims are located 6km southwest of Lelu Island, the proposed site of a pending $36 billion LNG facility that recently received conditional approval of the federal government. The Mayner’s Fortune claims are located approximately 7.5km southwest of Terrace, B.C., along the CN rail line between Terrace and Kitimat, B.C., where the proposed Royal Dutch Shell Consortium $40 billion LNG facility awaits a final investment decision.
