Perth, Feb 26, 2009 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Azure Minerals Limited (ASX:AZS)(PINK:AZRMF) is pleased to be an Exhibitor at the 2009 PDAC International Convention, Trade Show & Investors Exchange in Toronto, and invite convention attendees to visit us at Booth #2940.

Azure is a mineral exploration company operating in the richly mineralised Sierra Madre Occidental mining province in northern Mexico. Azure is focused on developing precious and base metal mining projects with the objective of becoming an independent minerals producer.

The Company is committed to short term value-added growth by advancing its high grade Promontorio copper-gold-silver project to production. Azure recently produced an initial JORC resource of 502Kt @ 4.7% copper, 2.1g/t gold & 99g/t silver. Initial metallurgical testwork on Promontorio ore has returned very positive results and the Company plans to expand the resources with further drilling.

Azure is also in Joint Venture with the Japanese government corporation JOGMEC to target large porphyry copper deposits on Azure's 100%-owned La Tortuga and Los Nidos properties. JOGMEC is sole-funding the first US$3M of exploration expenditure within 3 years to earn a 51% interest in this project.

In addition, Azure holds numerous other 100%-owned and joint venture (60%-owned) properties in Mexico, and is seeking farm out / sale opportunities for these non-core properties.
