Azimut and SOQUEM Resume Drilling on the High-Grade Lithium Zone at Galinée, James Bay Region, Quebec

18.03.2024 | 11:30 Uhr | GlobeNewswire

LONGUEUIL, March 18, 2024 - Azimut Exploration Inc. ("Azimut" or the "Company") (TSXV: AZM) (OTCQX: AZMTF) is pleased to announce that diamond drilling has resumed on the Galinée Property (the "Property") in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay region of Quebec, Canada. A minimum 2,500-metre drilling phase aims to further define and expand the high-grade lithium zone discovered during the maiden program in late 2023.

In addition to drilling the northern part of the project, Azimut will conduct a property-scale comprehensive prospecting phase over the summer to identify additional drill targets along highly prospective sectors on the Property. Azimut and its partner SOQUEM Inc. have ranked the Galinée Property as one of their top priorities for 2024. Azimut is the operator of the work program.

HIGHLIGHTS (see Figures 1 to 4)

The previously reported results at Galinée (see press releases of January 9 and February 23, 2024) notably comprise:

Hole GAL23-001 2.48% Li2O over 72.7 m including:
3.38% Li2O over 18.0 m
3.27% Li2O over 12.7 m

Hole GAL23-003 1.56% Li2O over 36.6 m including:
2.41% Li2O over 21.2 m

Hole GAL23-009 2.13% Li2O over 44.1 m including:
3.35% Li2O over 13.0 m
1.13% Li2O over 16.5 m including:
1.69% Li2O over 9.2 m

Hole GAL23-011 1.71% Li2O over 37.0 m including:
2.95% Li2O over 15.0 m
2.24% Li2O over 7.0 m

Hole GAL23-012 1.31% Li2O over 41.3 m including:
2.68% Li2O over 4.5 m
2.75% Li2O over 12.7 m

Hole GAL23-014 1.63% Li2O over 17.5 m including:
2.56% Li2O over 5.2 m

  • These high-grade lithium intervals, related to coarse spodumene pegmatite, are interpreted to have intersected the southern extension of the Adina deposit on the adjacent Adina property (Winsome Resources Ltd). Winsome Resources announced an initial inferred mineral resource estimate of 59 Mt at 1.12% Li2O for the Adina deposit (Winsome Resources' press release of December 11, 2023).
  • As currently defined, the lithium zone on Galinée has a strike length of 700 metres and trends roughly east-west. It remains largely open on the Property to the east and south, with the variability in thicknesses and grades expected for these types of pegmatitic bodies. The new drilling phase will better define the geometry and true thickness of the pegmatites intersected to date and their relationship to the Adina deposit. Initial data suggest a shallow dip to the south, ranging from subhorizontal to 15 degrees.
  • At a much larger scale, the Galinée Property displays strong exploration potential supported by Azimut's project database and recently acquired results on surrounding properties belonging to other companies. The region is considered an emerging lithium district. A cumulative 60 kilometres of highly prospective strike length has been outlined on the Property (see press release of February 23, 2024).

Drilling Contract and Analytical Protocols

Miikan Drilling Inc., a majority Cree-owned company, has been contracted for the current program. Miikan Drilling is owned by local communities and Chibougamau Diamond Drilling Ltd of Chibougamau (Quebec). Drilling is conducted with a core diameter of BTW.

Core samples are sent to ALS Laboratories in Montréal (Quebec) for ICP multi-element analysis (laboratory codes: ME-MS61, ME-MS89L, ME-ICP82b). Azimut applies industry-standard QA/QC procedures to its drilling programs. All batches sent for analysis include certified reference materials, blanks and field duplicates.
