High Grade Gold Discovered at Larken Prospect, West Omai

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES./

PERTH, Australia, Jan. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Azimuth Resources Limited (ASX and TSX: AZH) (the "Company" or "Azimuth") is pleased to announce the discovery of high grade gold at its Larken Prospect, less than 1km from its existing Hicks Deposit.

Highlights

  • First assays from shallow RC drilling at the Larken Prospect returned high grades over substantial widths.  Best results were:
    • LRC007:12 metres @ 4.8 g/t Au from 25 metres
    • LRC009:5 metres @ 2.5 g/t Au from 91 metres.
  • Assay results from this drilling program indicate that the Larken Prospect appears to be on a separate sub parallel structure 700m NE of Hicks. The Company believes this may be the same structure that hosts the Norby Prospect, some 3km to the NW of Larken.
  • The results of drill holes LRC007 and LRC009 when combined with the recently reprocessed and interpreted aeromagnetics illustrate the prospectivity of the West Omai region and specifically, the potential for additional high grade gold bearing structures in close proximity to the Smarts and Hicks Deposits.

Larken Prospect

Azimuth Resources Limited ("Azimuth" or "the Company") (ASX:AZH) is pleased to announce results from the first assayed reverse circulation drill hole at its 100% owned Larken Prospect ("Larken") located within the West Omai Gold Project, Guyana, South America.

Larken is a small artisanal open pit in saprolite, approximately 50 metres wide by 120 metres in strike and less than 15 metres deep, that was mined in the mid to late 1990s.  The pit lies approximately 700 metres to the northeast of the Hicks prospect and is likely to be a sub parallel structure to the one that hosts both Hicks and Smarts (see Figure 1).  Recent aeromagnetic processing and interpretation would indicate that there may well be a parallel zone of gold anomalism with a strike of at least 3 kilometres.

The Company believes the Norby Prospect (including SRC559 - 5m @ 1.1 g/t Au from 91m) which was drilled in the early stages of 2012, is likely hosted within this same structure, 3km to the northwest.

Results were received recently for LRC007 and LRC009. These were part of a program of 11 holes/1,265 metres drilled directly under the Larken pit as well as into a magnetic trend to the southeast.  Significant intercepts from the program are as follows;

  • LRC007                 12m @ 4.8 g/t Au (from 25m) and
                                   8m @ 0.95 g/t Au (from 91m)
  • LRC009                  5m @ 2.5 g/t Au (from 91m)

Encouragingly there is 130m of strike between LRC007 and LRC009, and there has been no drilling to the NW of LRC007, leaving the possibility that the structure remains open at this end. Other holes within the program were successful in intercepting the structure, however returned low grades. These results suggest that there is the potential for ore shoots, similar to those seen within the Smarts Deposit, within the broader structure. The geology of the prospect appears similar to that of Smarts, being a volcanic host with abundant quartz veining in a NW trending shear zone.

The Company is excited by this discovery as it validates the belief that there are other high grade gold bearing structures separate to the Hicks and Smarts structure within the West Omai project.

These intercepts are an extremely encouraging result from the first drilling campaign by Azimuth on a prospect that has not been subject to recent drilling.  Although further drill results are needed to place these intercepts into a definitive geological framework, these results are a great starting point for a new high priority exploration target expected to be better defined in the coming months.

Outlook

As the Company recommences drilling activities in 2013, Larken is a prospect that will receive a more prioritised focus. Along with several other targets generated by the Company, Larken will be further tested in the first quarter of 2013.

In parallel, the Company is working diligently towards releasing its upgraded resource statement within the same period.
