Azimut and Everton Begin Ground Geophysics IP Survey Over 1.7-Km Gold Bearing Trend at Opinaca, James Bay, Quebec

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - April 4, 2006) - Azimut Exploration Inc. ("Azimut")(TSX VENTURE:AZM) and its partner Eastmain Resources Inc. ("Eastmain") announce that a 35 line-kilometre induced polarization (IP) survey has started on a 1.7-km gold bearing trend discovered in fall 2005 on the A Block of the Opinaca Project in James Bay, Quebec. The Opinaca Project is adjacent to Virginia's Eleonore gold discovery that was recently acquired by Goldcorp Inc.

The survey follows up on the definition of the ENE-WSW-trending bedrock gold anomaly by covering its known strike distance of 1.7 kilometres in addition to any possible extensions. Selected samples from the trend returned values up to 29.07 g/t Au and 50.9 g/t Au (press releases of Nov. 21, 2005 and Jan. 24, 2006). The host rock consists of altered paragneiss containing trace to 3% sulphides. Drilling on the gold bearing trend is planned for this summer.

TMC Geophysics of Val d'Or, Quebec, is performing the IP survey using a time-domain system and a 25-metre dipole-dipole array, N equals 1 to 6.

The Opinaca Project (A, A-East, B and B-North blocks) comprises 616 claims covering 623 km2. Everton can earn up to 65% interest in the project from Azimut upon the delivery of a bankable feasibility study. Everton is the operator.

This press release was prepared by Everton and revised by geologist Jean-Marc Lulin, Azimut's Qualified Person under NI 43-101.

Azimut is a mineral exploration company that reduces exploration risk by using leading edge targeting methods to discover major deposits.
