Durango Resources $ Begins Exploration at Windfall Lake $ $ $ $

  • Durango Resources Inc.’s exploration team has arrived on site at Windfall Lake, Quebec.
  • Preparing drill pads for upcoming summer drill program

The work crew has been tasked with preparing the site for the upcoming summer drill program by way of creating drill pads and clearing access to the areas of interest. As previously announced on April 4, 2019, Durango has identified 15 drill targets for the Trove Property to test favourable IP signatures that coincide with geochemistry anomalies including gold found in till samples.

The exploration team will also be mapping and collecting additional till and rock samples on the East Barry Block in an area of interest along the contact of instrusives and volcanics. Till sampling conducted in 2018 and 2019, identified a 5km trend which we are eager to investigate and identify the source for future drill targets.

Marcy Kiesman, chief executive officer of Durango, stated: “I am excited to finally get our exploration team moving at Windfall Lake. I want to thank our shareholders for their patience this year as we navigated the challenges of closures and increased regulations due to COVID19. We look forward to a busy summer exploring and drilling in the Windfall gold camp adjacent to Osisko with great hopes for success for our shareholders.”

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 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., 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 (“IP”) 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 undergoing its final reviewing process for the proposed 3,000m drill program.

East Barry, Quebec

Durango owns 100% interest in the East Barry claims which run parallel to Trove claims. The East Barry block is over 6,100 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. In 2018 a till sampling program was conducted and one of the till samples returned fourty-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.
