Azimut Sells to Patriot Battery Metals its JBN-57 Property, James Bay Region, Quebec

Published

LONGUEUIL, Quebec, May 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Azimut Exploration Inc. (“Azimut” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AZM) (OTCQX: AZMTF) is pleased to announce the signing of a Sale and Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Patriot Battery Metals Inc. (“Patriot”) (TSX:PMET, ASX:PMT) for its wholly-owned JBN-57 Property (the “Property”), in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay region of Quebec (see Figures 1 and 2).

Under the Agreement, Patriot has acquired a 100% interest in the Property from Azimut for a cash payment of $500,000 and the issuance of 150,000 shares of Patriot. Azimut will retain a 2.0% NSR royalty on the Property. The parties were dealing at arm’s length. The monetization of this claim block in the Azimut portfolio provides the Company with additional funds to advance work programs on its flagship projects.

The JBN-57 Property (39 claims, 19.95 km2) is located 9 kilometres south of the Trans-Taiga Road. The Property is adjacent to Patriot’s Corvette Project and directly on strike with the major lithium pegmatite trend identified on the Corvette Property. The Property was staked as part of a regional nickel targeting exercise but also displays exploration potential for lithium-cesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatites. Azimut conducted an assessment of its potential in 2023, including a short prospecting phase.

This press release was prepared by Dr. Jean-Marc Lulin, P.Geo., acting as Azimut’s qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101.
