Durango Announces Private Placement To Explore Decouverte, QC

Vancouver, BC / Accesswire / May 9, 2014 / Durango Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Durango") announces that, further to its news release dated May 6, 2014, the Company has finalized the details of its follow up exploration program for the Decouverte Property in northern Quebec, which is located about 100 kilometres northwest of Chibougamau near Lac Pasquale.

Management has planned an initial one week Decouverte work program to include chip channel sampling and detailed geological mapping of the particular areas of interest and is expected to be conducted as soon as the snow melts. The exploration will focus primarily on coincident magnetic and geochemical gold anomalies within the newly defined "Target Area 1" as described in the news release of May 5, 2014.

To fund this exploration program, Durango has arranged a non-brokered private placement of up to three million units at $0.07 cents per unit for gross proceeds of up to $210,000 to be used for the Decouverte exploration program and general working capital. Each unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant exercisable for two years at $0.10 from the date of closing of the private placement. The closing of the private placement is subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

About Decouverte
