Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango stated, “At the time of this news release, Durango is still processing the recently completed drill core. Our geologist on site had taken a sample of an outcrop near the drill target area and we had sent it in for a rush assay to try to help determine which rocks are carrying gold. We are pleasantly surprised to continue to discover additional outcrops carrying gold in what appears to be the quartz veining. While waiting for drill core processing and assays Durango plans to send a small crew back to site to continue with mapping and sampling at surface.”
