Azimut: Second Year Option by Eastmain on the Opinaca Property in James Bay, Quebec

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 28, 2006) - Azimut Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AZM) ("Azimut") announces that Eastmain Resources Inc. ("Eastmain") will proceed with its second year option on the C and D blocks of Azimut's Opinaca Property. The Opinaca Property is adjacent to Virginia's Eleonore Gold discovery that was recently acquired by Goldcorp Inc.

The discovery of a gold-arsenic soil anomaly that measures at least 7 km long on the C Block was the most significant result obtained during the 2005 field exploration program (press release of December 14, 2005).

Eastmain plans to invest a minimum of $650,000 in exploration work on the C and D blocks in 2006. Work programs will target the C Block gold anomaly as well as numerous gold soil anomalies detected on the D Block. This phase of exploration will include detailed geochemical and geological surveys in addition to prospecting and trenching. Diamond drilling of selected targets will follow.

Azimut holds 100% interest in the C and D blocks comprising a total of 354 claims (185 km2). Eastmain can earn a 50% interest on the Property by investing $4.6 million in exploration work, and an additional 15% interest upon the delivery of a bankable feasibility study. Eastmain is the project operator.

This press release was prepared 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.
