Azimut controls a 330-kilometre Copper-Gold trend in Nunavik, Quebec

Longueuil, QC, March 31 – Azimut Exploration Inc. (“Azimut” or “the Company”) (TSXV: AZM) announces it has now completed the acquisition of what it considers to be an outstanding exploration domain for large-scale polymetallic deposits, including copper, gold, tungsten and rare earths, in Nunavik, northern Quebec.

Located about 140 kilometres east of the villages of Puvirnituq and Inukjuak, the domain is now covered by three (3) extensive, 100% owned properties: Rex, Rex South and NCG, totalling 13,132 claims for a surface area of 5,707 km2. The very encouraging 2010 exploration results prompted Azimut to expand its land position to cover all remaining quality targets along a 330-km trend defined mainly by a strong copper anomaly in lake-bottom sediments. A minimum of $6.6 million will be invested in 2011 to accelerate exploration, including $4.1 million by Azimut’s key partner Aurizon Mines Ltd. (“Aurizon”) at Rex South, and $2.5 million by Azimut directly on the Rex and NCG properties. An initial 10,000-metre drilling program will be performed this summer.
