Azimut Strengthens the High-Grade Core Zone at Patwon, Elmer Property, Quebec

 

 

 

 

 

Azimut Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AZM) is pleased to announce new high-grade gold intervals from the Patwon Zone on the Company’s 100% owned Elmer Property in the James Bay region of Quebec. Drilling completed to date has confirmed an open-ended robust core zone at Patwon.

 

The final assay results have now been received for 15 holes (5,431.6 m) at Patwon from a program completed earlier this year. Assay results are still pending for another 32 drill holes that tested 10 targets in the 8-kilometre by 3-kilometre priority exploration corridor around the Patwon discovery.

 

A new 20,000-metre drilling program is underway to continue expanding the Patwon Zone and prepare for a maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate (see press release of October 18, 2021). This program will also continue testing highly prospective targets nearby. Azimut considers it is probable that other significant mineralized zones will be found along strike from Patwon.

 

HIGHLIGHTS (see Figures 1 to 6, Tables 1 to 3)

 

• Hole ELM21-102 1.44 g/t Au over 60.8 m (from 228.5 m to 289.3 m), including:
18.1 g/t Au over 2.75 m and
2.55 g/t Au over 6.9 m
• Hole ELM21-097 1.10 g/t Au over 57.9 m (from 295.6 m to 353.5 m), including:
2.52 g/t Au over 8.0 m and
4.14 g/t Au over 3.75 m
• Hole ELM21-094 9.92 g/t Au over 2.3 m (from 229.7 m to 232.0 m)
2.17 g/t Au over 19.0 m (from 324.5 m to 343.5 m), including:
6.07 g/t Au over 2.1 m and
12.0 g/t Au over 1.5 m
12.2 g/t Au over 1.25 m (from 358.35 m to 359.6 m)
• Hole ELM21-093 8.19 g/t Au over 2.4 m (from 150.4 m to 152.8 m)
11.58 g/t Au over 2.45 m (from 162.35 m to 164.8 m)
  • These results further delineate the robust mineralized body, including the central core that tends to widen to the west with increasing depth, as shown on the updated grade x thickness longitudinal section (Figures 4 and 5). The grade x thickness factor (example: 5.0 g/t Au x 10 m = 50 GT) is commonly used in the mining industry to rank and compare mineralized intercepts.
  • Based on the results disclosed to date and using true estimated widths, the core zone is defined thus far by 25 drill hole intercepts ranging from 50 GT to 412 GT, including 11 intercepts above 100 GT. These 25 drill hole intercepts display an average true width of 45 metres, with an average grade of 2.86 g/t Au.

  • The central core extends from the surface to a minimum depth of 450 metres, where the mineralized system remains open. It is spatially correlated with a vertically dipping felsic intrusion, indicating an excellent possibility for a kilometre-scale vertical extent of the mineralized body.
  • The Patwon Zone is currently defined over a strike length of 520 metres. Figure 4 illustrates the progress since the maiden drilling program (7 holes, 996 m) reported in January 2020.
  • The current delineation drilling program to expand the zone will be conducted on systematic 50-metre centres from the surface down to 500 metres and on systematic 50-metre by 100-metre centres down to 800 metres (Figure 6).

 

The Elmer Property comprises 515 claims covering 271.3 km2 over a 35-kilometre strike length. The Property is 285 kilometres north of the town of Matagami, 60 kilometres east of the village of Eastmain, and 5 kilometres west of the paved James Bay Road, a major all-season highway. The region benefits from quality 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 and the core samples were sent to AGAT Laboratories of Mississauga, Ontario. Azimut is facing unexpectedly long delays in receiving its assay results. Gold is analyzed by fire assay, with atomic absorption and gravimetric finish for grades above 3.0 g/t Au. Samples are also analyzed for a 48-element suite using ICP. Azimut applies industry-standard QA/QC procedures to its programs. Certified reference materials, blanks and field duplicates are included in all drill core batches sent for analysis.

 

Dr. Jean-Marc Lulin, P.Geo., prepared this press release as Azimut’s qualified person under National Instrument 43-101. The program is managed by François Bissonnette, P.Geo., Operations Manager and Simon Houle, P.Geo., Chief Geologist. Both have reviewed the content of this press release.
