LONGUEUIL, QC, May 26, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Azimut Exploration Inc. ("Azimut" or the "Company") (TSXV: AZM) is pleased to announce it has resumed drilling on its 100%-owned Elmer Property in the James Bay-Eeyou Istchee region of Quebec.

The 6,000-metre (30-hole) diamond drilling program uses two rigs as originally planned. The objective is to expand the recent Patwon Gold Discovery, which consists of multiple substantial drill hole intersections, including 3.12 g/t Au over 102.0 metres. Most targets are drillable year-round (see press releases of January 14 and March 18, 2020).

Five main target areas (ELM-1 to ELM-5) are located within a 2.5 by 1.0 kilometre highly prospective corridor, open at both ends. The target areas are mostly defined by induced polarization ("IP") anomalies along several subparallel axes, for a cumulative length of at least 7 kilometres.

Azimut has implemented strict protective measures for its operations, which follow the INSPQ and CNESST guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company's protocols have been reviewed by the Cree Nation Government. Azimut acknowledges the excellent collaboration on the part of the Cree authorities to help advance operations under these very challenging circumstances. The Company suspended its exploration programs in March (see press release of March 25, 2020) to respect the Government of Quebec's decree in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This press release was prepared by Dr. Jean-Marc Lulin, P.Geo., acting as Azimut's qualified person under National Instrument 43-101.
