Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / January 19, 2016 - Durango Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Durango") announces that it has entered into a right of first refusal on a hot spring property located in northern British Columbia with historic lithium values.
The Force Awakens property covers a BC minfile occurrence #103I 004, which is a lithium rich hot spring listed in the Geological Survey of Canada in paper 73-1 and reports, "a high content of lithium".
The Force Awakens project is adjacent to the highway, southwest of Terrace, BC and is in very close proximity to the previously announced acquisition, Mayner's Fortune Property. The property location is along the highway between Terrace and Kitimat; Kitimat being the location of the recently approved 40 year LNG export licence of LNG Canada, so ample infrastructure exists in the area.
Marcy Kiesman, Durango's CEO stated, "The project is in an area that the Company is very familiar with and allows for easy low cost sampling and exploration so Durango is looking very closely at this lithium property."
Lithium is used in several capacities, including in electric vehicle batteries such as TESLA (Nasdaq symbol TLSA). A recent report issued by Goldman Sachs dated December 2, 2015 called, "Lithium the new gasoline" http://www.goldmansachs.com/our-thinking/pages/macroeconomic-insights-folder/what-if-i-told-you/report.pdf.
An article on www.mashable.com by Adario Strange dated January 11, 2016, titled "Tesla's Elon Musk claims and Apple Car is in the works" outlines Musk's belief that APPLE Inc. (Nasdaq symbol AAPL) is working on developing and electric Apple car.
