Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / November 30, 2016 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that on November 28, 2016 its neighbor to the west, Nemaska Lithium Inc. (T-NMX) provided details on its newly discovered Doris zone on its Whabouchi lithium project.
As stated in Nemaska Lithium’s news release dated November 28, “…the Doris zone contains 5 interconnected dykes and has now been confirmed on 420m of lateral extension and up to a maximum depth of 440m where it joins the main dyke. The Doris zone starts in the southwest and is open along strike to the northeast. Doris appears to run parallel to main zone which extends for 1.2km to the northeast.” (1)
Durango’s 100%-owned NMX East ground adjoins the eastern boundary of the Whabouchi property, where the Doris zone remains open, and lies less than 1.5km from the proposed Whabouchi pit. Durango’s geological team identified a pegmatite intrusion at NMX East running parallel to Nemaska Lithium’s main zone which returned anomalous lithium and rubidium values. (2)
The Company has renewed the strategically located NMX East claims for an additional two years and intends to begin stripping and/or drilling of the pegmatite targets in the new year to determine the full extent of the intrusive bodies. Durango met with drilling contractors at the Québec Mines convention in Québec City last week, as announced on November 21, 2016, and will announce further details as they become available.
A map of Durango’s NMX East property in relation to the Whabouchi lithium deposit is available on the Durango Resources website:
Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango stated, “LCT pegmatite intrusions are known to occur in groups spanning tens of square kilometres. Considering the proximity of the NMX East lithium-bearing pegmatite intrusions to the Whabouchi deposit, we see a great amount of potential for discovery on our ground.”
