Durango Resources Inc announce that it has engaged an additional drill company for its exploration program on its wholly owned properties at Windfall Lake in Quebec.
East Barry Property
Further to the news release of November 19, 2020, Durango has received drill permits for the East Barry claim block to test high priority targets coincident with high till anomalies of up to 2.19 g/t gold and pristine gold grains in till trend. Now that weather conditions are favourable for preparing access, a drill has been commissioned to test a geophysical anomaly which also coincides with an artificial intelligence target. The Company has hired Faubert & Fils from Val d’Or, Québec, to complete several initial exploration drill holes on its East Barry Property.
To date, 1,700m has been drilled in eight holes on the Trove Property at an average depth of 213m. Drilling is still continuing at the Trove Property with the drilling crew working on hole #9. As noted previously, the objective of the drill campaign is to test IP anomalies derived from previous exploration work.
The main lithologies observed in the drill holes are represented by mafic to intermediate volcanics, metasediments and felsic intrusives crosscut by quartz feldspar porphyry and felsic dikes containing disseminated to semi-massive sulphides. Molybdenite, chalcopyrite and silver indicator alterations were also observed. The lithological contacts are marked by chlorite-epidote-carbonate alterations containing centimetric to decimetric mineralized quartz veins. The labs continue to be delayed and backed up due to extremely high quantities of samples they are receiving from multiple exploration companies and a shortage of personnel.
Durango’s high priority targets remain undrilled due the land condition caused by unseasonably warm weather, which has prevented the freezing required for access to the drill hole locations. Durango has 20 high priority holes planned for drilling on the Trove Property, between 200 and 800 meters deep, when the ground is sufficiently frozen to permit drill access.
