Durango Applies for Drill Permits at NMX East Property
Vancouver, BC - TheNewswire - May 25, 2021 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSXV:DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTC:ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango”) reports that it has applied for drill permits on its wholly-owned NMX East Property located near Nemaska, Québec.
The NMX East property borders the eastern perimeter of Nemaska Lithium’s Whabouchi deposit which is one of the richest spodumene deposits in the world based on its volume and grade. Nemaska Lithium reports over 36M tonnes of spodumene is expected to be produced at the Whabouchi deposit over a period of 33 years (www.nemaskalithium.com). Spodumene is used to produce lithium salts which are used for the lithium-ion battery market and have become increasingly popular in recent years due to growing demand for electric vehicles.
To date, Durango has ascertained that lithium, cesium, and tantalum (“LCT”) are present at surface in pegmatite outcrops on its NMX East Property with potential for more to exist below surface. For this reason, Durango has applied for drill permits for two exploration holes on the property to test drill the pegmatite outcrops at depth.
The property has great road access from the Route du Nord and is easily accessible. Durango is planning to follow up on previous LCT pegmatite sampling obtained at surface from grab samples on its NMX East property and plans to deploy a crew during the summer.
The technical contents of this press release were approved by George Yordanov, professional geologist, an Independent Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The NMX East Property has not yet been subject to an NI-43-101 report.
Durango is a natural resources company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties. The Company is positioned for discovery with a 100% interest in a strategically located group of properties in the Windfall Lake gold camp in the Abitibi region of Québec, Canada.
