LONGUEUIL, QC, May 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Azimut Exploration Inc. ("Azimut") (TSXV: AZM) reports that ground-based geophysical surveys have begun on the Rex and Rex South properties to better define high-quality polymetallic drilling targets. Surveying will comprise 115 line-kilometres of induced polarization (IP) and 278 line-kilometres of magnetics to be performed on the two properties. This phase of work is in preparation for the 10,000-metre drilling program scheduled to start early this summer, which will include 3,000 metres of drilling at Rex and 7,000 metres at Rex South.

At Rex, the survey consists of 57 line-km of IP and 128 line-km of magnetics to cover two extensive copper-rich mineralized zones known as RBL and CM (see press releases of October 13, October 20 and December 20, 2010).

At Rex South, optioned to Aurizon Mines Ltd, the survey consists of 58 line-km of IP and 150 line-km of magnetics, which will also cover two extensive polymetallic (gold-silver-copper-tungsten) zones known as Augossan and Anorthosite (see press releases of November 8, 2010 and February 15, 2011).

TMC Geophysics of Val d'Or, Quebec, has been contracted for this phase of the geophysical program. The IP survey is being performed along 200-metre spaced lines using a dipole-dipole configuration (a=25 m; n=1 to 6).
