Durango Completes Discovery Visit

Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / June 26, 2024 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTCQB -ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango”) has completed a site visit to its wholly owned Discovery Property in the James Bay region of Québec.

Durango sent a small exploration team to the Discovery Property to assess the road access and damage caused by the 2023 fires which plagued northern Québec. The fires burned through trees, brush and mossy overburden which enhanced the exposure of outcropping rocks on certain areas of the Discovery Property.

Additional pegmatite dykes were noted and mapped on the Discovery property. A grab sample was taken from each of the dykes to be assessed analytically by AGAT Laboratories for the potential of bearing lithium, cesium, tantalum (“LCT”). Due to the fires and the increased visibility of rocks multiple pegmatite dykes were newly exposed and visible on the Discovery Property. Figure 1 shows the pegmatite dyke outcrops in red.

One of the dykes located in the south, contains larger quantities of muscovite mica, a hydrous sheet silicate, therefore volatile and incompatible element enrichment of the pegmatitic melt is hypothesized to have been retained to a greater extent in these pegmatites. Due to these reasons, it is more likely that these pegmatites could host rare mineral occurrences at depth therefore drilling is recommended. Graphic intergrowths are a common feature found in the wall zones of pegmatites; therefore larger, more evolved zones in the pegmatites could be found at depth. The pegmatites of the property occur in multiple orientations, but several large outcrops are found in a NE/SW orientation and NW/SE orientation.
