About the Elmer Project

The gold discovery on the Elmer Project, wholly owned by the Company, was announced in January 2020 following a maiden drilling program. Azimut is actively advancing the project to the initial resource stage. The Patwon Zone is currently defined over a strike length near 600 metres, a minimum depth of 700 metres and an estimated average true width of 35 metres. The potential to discover additional zones in the vicinity of Patwon is considered excellent. A diamond drilling exploration program in 2022 will follow up on the 507-hole reverse circulation drilling program completed earlier this year.
