The discovery of the Patwon zone was announced in January 2020, following the initial drill program. Thus far, the zone has been delineated by 115 holes (48,381 metres). The zone is continuous from surface to at least 800 metres, and it remains open pit depth – and probably along strike, says Azimut. The strike length extends nearly 600 metres with an estimated true width of 35 metres. Drilling continues to expand and optimize a potential open pit.
The best assay from the Patwon zone was 24.04 g/t gold over 18 metres from 254 to 272 metres.
Azimut’s wholly owned Elmer property is a gold-silver-copper-zinc project located in the Eeyou-Istchee James Bay region of Quebec, about 5 km west of the James Bay Road and 100 km from Newmont’s Eleonore gold mine. The property is also 60 km from the Cree community of Eastmain.
