• Airborne magnetic, radiometric and electromagnetic geophysical surveying program completed

• Data processing and interpretation in progress

Azure Minerals Limited (ASX: AZS) (“Azure” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that the first phase of airborne geophysical surveying program at Promontorio has been completed. This program is part of the Earn-In and Joint Venture Agreement (“the Agreement”) with Kennecott Exploration Mexico S.A. de C. V. (“Kennecott”), part of the Rio Tinto Group.

The helicopter-borne survey was designed to look beneath post-mineral volcanic rocks that cover most of the project area and to detect geophysical signatures indicative of large copper systems and near-surface epithermal and massive sulphide mineralisation hosted in the basement rocks. 

The survey was carried out by independent geophysical contractor MPX Geophysics Ltd of Ontario, Canada. Detailed processing and interpretation of the data is currently being undertaken.

Several different styles of precious and base metal mineralisation have previously been identified at Promontorio, including high sulphidation epithermal, hydrothermal breccia and porphyry-hosted. Potential size of mineralisation ranges from large, bulk-tonnage resources to more modest-sized, high grade bodies, which bodes well for large scale, long-life mining operations. Azure will release further exploration results to the market as they become available.

• Fast. PhotoSat solutions are ideal for large, inaccessible, or remote sites. With no permits needed, we can efficiently produce engineering-grade surveys and alteration mineral maps over hundreds or even thousands of square kilometers. No site access is required, and all data processing is completed without involvement from ground crews.
• Global. Satellites are not restricted by borders, permits, or ground logistics. We have completed more than 1,300 projects in over 75 countries, with exacting standards of accuracy and consistency.
• Reliable. Each PhotoSat project is produced from satellite photos, with each photo covering hundreds of square kilometers. As a result, our data sets are consistent, time-stamped and robust, with high data point density.
• Innovative. PhotoSat is a leader in satellite-based surveying technology and alteration mineral mapping. We use proprietary deep learning algorithms in our data processing. Our unique technology produces outstanding results that are trusted by mining companies and engineering consultants around the world.
