TORONTO, Feb. 12 /CNW/ - NWT Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: NWT; OTCBB: NWURF)
announced today that Azimut Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AZM) has accepted that
the defaults described in Azimut's Notice of Default dated December 17, 2007
have been cured by NWT, with respect to the North Rae and Daniel Lake uranium
properties located in the Ungava Bay region in northern Quebec and under
option from Azimut Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AZM).
In its Curative Notice, delivered on January 30, 2008 in response to
Azimut's Notice of Default, NWT disputed that it was in default. According to
Azimut, the extensive documentation and data provided by NWT in its Curative
Notice has adequately resolved the issues raised by the Notice of Default.
"We are pleased that this dispute has been resolved and that we can now
move forward with Azimut on the continued exploration of North Rae and Daniel
Lake, which we believe represent a new uranium district in Canada," said Marek
J. Kreczmer, President and CEO of NWT. "We trust that continued cooperation
between our two companies will result in significant benefits for our
shareholders through the aggressive development of our joint properties."
NWT has the right to acquire up to 65% interest from Azimut in the North
Rae Uranium Project, where results to date have revealed the potential for a
new uranium district. NWT also has an option to acquire up to 65% ownership in
the Daniel Lake Uranium Project, which neighbors North Rae. North Rae and
Daniel Lake cover a total area of more than 300,000 acres (123,500 hectares).
