    LONGUEUIL, QC, Dec. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Azimut Exploration Inc. ("Azimut")
and its partner Channel Resources Ltd. ("Channel") have received positive
results from their 2007 helicopter-borne survey on the West Bienville project
in Central Quebec.
    In October, McPhar Geosurveys Ltd. completed a helicopter-borne survey
over the 108-km2 claim block comprising the property using flight lines spaced
200 metres apart. The survey included high sensitivity magnetometry, gamma ray
spectrometry and THEM time-domain electromagnetic surveys. Approximately
500 line-km were successfully surveyed before survey crews de-mobilized for
the winter season.

    Survey results indicate the presence of two high priority radiometric
anomalies:
    
    - An east-southeast trending anomaly with a strike length of
      approximately 5 km and a width of up to 1 km; and
    - An east-northeast trending anomaly with similar dimensions to
      the east-southeast anomaly.
    

    Both anomalies merge and are spatially correlated with peak uranium
values (230 ppm U) from an earlier regional-scale lake-bottom sediment survey.
Significantly, the anomalies also coincide with the location of the
intersection of regional-scale faults and magnetic anomalies. These factors
are considered as positive indicators of the property's uranium potential and
the two radiometric trends will be the prime targets of follow-up field work
in 2008.
    Azimut's West Bienville property was optioned to Channel (press release
of September 4, 2007). The property is centred on a clearly defined, 10-km
long uranium anomaly in lake-bottom sediments adjacent to the 350-km long
Central Quebec Uranium Lineament, which is associated with crustal-scale
structural features.

    Azimut is a mineral exploration company using cutting-edge targeting
