("Azimut" or the "Company") (TSXV: AZM) is pleased to announce that it has engaged InnovExplo Inc., a highly regarded Val-d'Or-based consulting company in geology and mine engineering, to prepare the mineral resource estimate for the Patwon Gold Zone and a supporting technical report compliant with National Instrument 43-101.
Azimut is also pleased to inform that the services of Mrs. Lise Chénard, P.Eng., have been retained by the Company as Senior Advisor in mining geology to support the progress of the Elmer project. Mrs. Chénard brings an extensive experience in mining geology, both in Canada and abroad.

Azimut discovered the Patwon Gold Zone two years ago during the Company's maiden drilling program on the Elmer Property in the James Bay region of Quebec (see press release of January 14, 2020). The Patwon Zone is currently outlined along a 580-metre strike length and down to 450 metres, with an average estimated true width of 35 metres. The current core drilling program aims to define this zone down to at least 800 metres. Initial metallurgical tests indicate non-refractory mineralized material with gold recoveries reaching up to 94% (see press releases of November 4 and November 22, 2021).
