Symbol: AZM.TSX Venture

LONGUEUIL, QC, Aug. 27, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Azimut Exploration Inc. ("Azimut" or the "Company") (TSXV: AZM) is pleased to report excellent results of a helicopter-borne geophysical survey recently completed on the Nantais Property (Au, Ag, Cu, Zn). The newly acquired results, combined with the presence of high-grade polymetallic prospects and strong geochemical anomalies in lake-bottom sediments, lead the Company to consider Nantais as an attractive ready-to-drill district-scale target.

Electromagnetic anomalies totalling 18.4 km of cumulative length over 23 distinct conductors have been identified. This includes a 1.2-km-long conductor coincident with a 3-km-long mineralized corridor previously outlined by Azimut (see press release dated July 3, 2014). The geophysical anomalies also display an excellent correlation with strong property-scale copper and silver-arsenic-antimony-bismuth anomalies in lake-bottom sediments.

The geophysical program consisted of a VTEM plus time-domain electromagnetic survey and a high-resolution magnetic survey totalling 998 linear kilometres, with a line spacing of 200 metres. Geotech Ltd of Aurora, Ontario, has performed the survey and identified the conductor axes, with the results further interpreted by Jeremy S. Brett, senior geophysical consultant for MPH Consulting Limited of Toronto, Ontario.

The Nantais Property covers an under-explored 20-km-long Archean greenstone belt entirely controlled by Azimut. The project comprises 383 claims with a surface area of 160.5 km2. It is located about 80 km south of Glencore's world-class Raglan nickel-PGE mine and 115 km southwest of the Inuit village of Kangiqsujuaq.

The best grades reported for rock grab samples from Nantais are presented below (see press releases of April 19 and September 18, 2012):
