Durango Resources (TSX.V-DGO) has released an update on the potential agricultural uses for its limestone located on the northwest coast of British Columbia.
As quoted in the press release:

The Mayner’s Fortune property is located approximately 7.5km southwest of Terrace, B.C. and recent logging in the area has benefitted Durango by providing road access to the project. The construction of the logging roads exposed additional limestone at surface over a large area which was not previously mapped in historical reports. The new limestone outcrops were sampled and sent for assay as announced previously on November 1, 2016.
When recently speaking with an individual in the agricultural industry, the synergy of agricultural limestone and its use as a soil conditioner was discussed. The limestone is activated when it meets with water and dissolves into the soil which lowers the acidity and raises the pH which is essential for crop yields. The lime also adds desirable nutrients to the soils such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus which improves soil structure, increases rates of air and water infiltration, improves plant cell wall formation and can help to regulate the nutrient uptake through the roots of the plant. Hydroponic systems are more prone to incur a calcium deficiency and require the use of limestone.
Limestone is extremely beneficial for the agricultural industry including the commercial growth marijuana industry. As such, the Company is actively investigating marketing its limestone to these mediums. Commercial marijuana operations are now North America wide, as several states in the USA voted for recreational and medicinal marijuana legislation.

Marcy Kiesman, CEO comments: “Durango’s management team is pleased with its decision to diversify its holdings by acquiring alternative green projects which are versatile enough to be used for construction, agricultural use and for additional green-tech solutions. The beneficial chemical properties of agricultural lime can significantly boost the profit potential of farms and can increase fertilizer efficiency up to fifty per cent which is important for crop yield and profitability.”
