Azimut and SOQUEM confirm the Copperfield Trend as a Major Copper-Gold Target on the Pikwa Property, James Bay region, Quebec
Mineralized Outcrops and Boulder Field with Grades Up to 20.1% Cu and
13.4 g/t Au along a 5.5 km by 0.5 km Corridor
Longueuil, Quebec – Azimut Exploration Inc. (“Azimut” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AZM) is pleased to report the full results from the 2019 exploration program on the 20-kilometre-long Copperfield Trend identified on the Pikwa Property (the “Property”) in the James Bay region of Quebec (see Figures 1 to 5).
The encouraging results from 2019 include the discovery of high-grade mineralized outcrops and proximal boulders (up to 20.1% Cu and up to 13.45 g/t Au) that correlates with a 5.5-kilometre-long copper soil anomaly. These results warrant a substantial follow-up program that will comprise ground geophysics (induced polarization) and a maiden diamond drilling program in early 2020.
The Property is part of the James Bay Strategic Alliance (the “Alliance”) between Azimut and SOQUEM Inc. (“SOQUEM”), a subsidiary of Ressources Québec. Major developments of the Alliance were disclosed in the Company’s press release of May 15, 2019. Azimut is the operator of the Alliance.
