Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / November 22, 2022 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO) (Frankfurt-86A1) (OTCQB -ATOXF), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that further to the news release of November 8, 2022, it has reviewed the mineral occurrence data from BC Mineral Titles Online for its staking near American Eagle Gold Corp.’s NAK copper discovery located in the Babine copper-gold porphyry district of west-central British Columbia. American Eagle recently announced a 125-meter discovery from surface of 1.02% copper equivalent on its NAK property maiden drill hole.

The NAK property reports older lithological units being intruded by an Eocene-aged diorite stock which is cut by a younger series of north trending biotite-feldspar porphyry rhyodacitic intrusives. According to the American Eagle Gold Corp. website (American Eagle to Acquire the NAK Copper-Gold Porphyry Project in British Columbia | American Eagle Gold) the copper gold mineralization seems to be associated with biotite-feldspar porphyry and rhyodacitic dykes and can occur along the margins of the dykes which also support the historical reports of the Durango claim mineralogy.*

After preliminary review of the BC Mineral Title Online (“MTO”) data, it appears that Durango’s newly staked ground is in the same geological land package as the NAK discovery, located in the Stikine Island Arc Terrane and underlain by a northwest trending Jurassic aged rock package. MTO reports on the Durango properties describe granodiorite stocks intruded by highly magnetic feldspar porphyry dikes of an Eocene-aged Plutonic Suite.

Durango has also acquired two additional land packages near the NAK copper discovery located in the Babine copper-gold porphyry district of west-central British Columbia. One land package is just over 2,000 hectares and borders Durango’s newly staked land package and American Eagle Gold Corp’s (TSXV-AE) NAK property. The second land package is approximately 500 hectares in size and is located east of the NAK discovery and covers a BC Mineral Title Online occurrence.

Durango now holds 3,500 hectares in the area and is continuing to review the historical reports in conjunction with the reported geology from others working in the area. The Company is in the process of creating a location map of the new claims and obtaining additional geological information which it will release as soon as it is available.

Marcy Kiesman of Durango stated, “While researching the area and the historical reports we discovered that there are reported copper occurrences over a large area and determined that acquiring additional claims is a strategic maneuver due to copper being a critical metal on both the Canadian and the American critical mineral list.”

The Company has agreed to pay $10,000 and issue 1,500,000 common shares to arm’s length vendors subject to TSXV approval for one hundred percent ownership of the claims.

*The historical reports have not been verified by the Company and therefore should not be relied upon. The technical contents of this press release were approved by Melanie Mackay, P.Geo., professional geologist, an independent qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
