Azimut Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AZM) (OTCQX: AZMTF) is pleased to report new assay results from seven holes drilled on the Patwon Gold Zone on the Company’s 100% owned Elmer Property in the James Bay region of Quebec. The Company has now reached one of the program’s initial goals by cutting wide mineralized intercepts at a vertical depth of 800 metres or more in several holes (ELM22-155, -157A, and -158C) for which assay results are still pending.
The Company has now drilled thirty-six holes (34 complete; 2 in progress) for 19,980 m during this program, including thirty-one on Patwon (18,951 m) and five on surrounding targets (1,029 m). The results for the first fifteen (15) holes have already been reported (see press releases of March 10 and April 27, 2022). The results of the Patwon delineation program will be incorporated into a maiden mineral resource estimate supported by a technical report compliant with National Instrument 43-101.
Azimut is planning a significant summer core drilling program to test new targets in the vicinity of Patwon to follow up on the 507-hole reverse circulation drilling campaign (for 6,681 m) completed earlier this year (see press release of April 6, 2022). The Company considers that the discovery potential for additional mineralized zones along strike from or subparallel to Patwon is excellent.
HIGHLIGHTS (see Figures 1 to 8, Tables 1 to 4)
The Elmer Property comprises 515 claims (271.3 km2) over a 35-kilometre strike length. The Property lies 285 kilometres north of the town of Matagami, 60 kilometres east of the village of Eastmain, and 5 kilometres west of the paved Billy-Diamond Highway, a major all-season highway. The region benefits from excellent infrastructure, including significant road access, a hydroelectric power grid, and airports.
Drilling Contract and Analytical Protocols
The drilling contract was awarded to RJLL Drilling Inc. of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. The core diameter is NQ. The core samples were sent to ALS Laboratories in Val d’Or, Québec, where gold was analyzed by fire assay, with atomic absorption and gravimetric finishes for grades above 3.0 g/t Au. Samples were also analyzed for a 48-element suite using ICP. Azimut applies industry-standard QA/QC procedures to its drilling programs. All batches sent for analysis include certified reference materials, blanks, and field duplicates.
