LONGUEUIL, QC, Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Azimut Exploration Inc ("Azimut" 
or "the Company") (TSXV: AZM) announces that the Company has acquired by map 
staking three (3) new properties, the Qassituq, Kovik and Tasinga properties, 
for their copper and gold potential. Located in the Raglan region in Northern 
Quebec, these projects are the result of systematic data processing performed 
by Azimut over the entire region. 
Totalling 434 claims (178 km(2)) in 6 blocks, the properties display very 
strong geochemical anomalies in lake-bottom sediments, notably in arsenic 
and/or copper. They comprise several historical mineralized prospects (grab 
samples) including: 

    --  3 prospects with values up to 1.7% Cu and 0.54 g/t Au on
    --  2 prospects with values up to 1.5% Cu on Tasinga.

In addition, the Kovik property covers the possible western extension of an 
11-km-long copper and gold system recently identified on the Gerfaut property 
by Corvus Gold Inc (TSX: KOR). This project hosts significant historical 
prospects, including 3.0 g/t Au over 10.5 m (drill hole) and up to 1.52% Cu 
(grab sample). Results reported by Corvus Gold in 2012 include grab samples 
with up to 23.6 g/t Au and 3.8% Cu.
