The Discovery Property is in the highly prospective James Bay Territory, 100km north of Chibougamau, Québec in the Frotet-Evans greenstone belt. In July of 2022, Durango completed an exploration drill campaign in an area with known gold anomalies at surface. To date, partial results have come in for holes 1, 2, and 4. Lithium-bearing pegmatite pods were intersected in each of the drill holes which led to the corporate decision to invite additional expertise to the technical committee as announced on December 15th, 2022. Durango is still waiting on the assay results for all pegmatite pod intersections and will announce them as soon as they become available.
The Discovery Property is located on strike to the southwest of the past producing Troilus gold mine and neighbours Troilus Gold Corp. (TSX-TLG). The Discovery Property is over 6,500ha in size and covers an important geological northeast to southwest regional structure.
