Durango holds approximately 9,500 hectares in the Windfall Lake exploration camp area located in the Urban Barry greenstone belt, and the properties are easily accessible via a gravel road that originates from Lebel Sur-Quevillon. The properties are traversed by many secondary logging roads which facilitate access to the areas for future exploration work.
Durango’s claim blocks are crosscut by important northwest-southeast structures which extend to the mineralized areas of Windfall Lake. Durango’s claim block in the east is situated along a major fault system holding many important anomalies and showings.
In late November 2017 the exploration team managed to obtain 50 till/soil samples obtained from Durango’s northern blocks which neighbour Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX-OSK). These claims were deemed priority due to being cut by crosscutting fault systems striking toward the Windfall Lake main mineralized system.
Thirty-six five-kilogram till and 36 duplicate soil samples were collected, analyzed for fine-fraction analysis, and sampled for gold grain count and dense fraction. Of the 36 till samples taken from the area, 17 samples, (47% of the samples collected), returned gold grains, and 25 till samples of the multi-element assays reported gold anomalies between five ppb (parts per billion) and 3,480 ppb, (representing 74% of the samples collected).
A duplicate of heavy mineral concentrate for each till sample for each station was sent for a complete 36-element assay analysis. Twenty-five of the 36 samples returned anomalous gold values and 15 of the samples returned values of between five ppb and 100 ppb gold. The highest returned gold anomalies from the analysis were 3,480 ppb Au (sample DGT-30), 1,160 ppb Au (sample DGT-17), 425 ppb Au (sample DGT-18), 305 ppb Au (sample DGT-27), 160 ppb (sample DGT-26) and 121 ppb (samples DGT-10 and DGT-8).
