LONGUEUIL, QC, Sept. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Exploration Azimut Inc. ("Azimut")
and Arianne Resources Inc. ("Arianne") announce encouraging preliminary field
results for the Havre Nord property located north of the town of Havre St.
Pierre in the North Shore region.
A radioactive pegmatite identified by surface prospecting ran 4,000 to
20,000 counts per second (cps) with a peak of 25,000 cps (Exploranium GR-135
Plus scintillometer). Discovered on a cliff face, the subhorizontally dipping
pegmatite was traced over 45 m with an average thickness of 5 metres. Yellow
minerals were observed on the rock's surface and are thought to represent
weathered primary uranium-bearing minerals. Surrounded by a granitic
intrusion, the pegmatite contains smoky quartz and large crystals of
The showing is spatially correlated with a strong uraniferous
helicopter-borne anomaly measuring 1 by 5 km. This anomaly was detected by a
survey conducted over the property by Géophysique GPR International in June of
2007. The location of the showing with respect to the anomaly indicates that
significant extensions may be present. Twenty (20) grab samples were collected
in the area and sent for analysis. A follow-up program will be prepared based
on the results of these rock samples.
Azimut and Arianne have signed an option for the Havre Nord property
allowing Arianne to acquire an interest in the project of 468 claims totalling
261 km(2) (press release of June 22, 2007). The fieldwork was led by Christian
Tremblay and supervised by Bernard Lapointe, both of whom are geologists. Mr.
Lapointe acted as Arianne's Qualified Person according to National Instrument
