The EASCAMP experiment, one of the few situated in the Southern Hemisphere, operating at the State University of Campinas, UNICAMP, Brazil, detected for two years single muons in the low energetic range. The primary cosmic rays that produce these muons have a geomagnetic vertical cut-off of 10.6 GV. We studied the azimuthal distribution of three million single muons obtaining an East-West asymmetry of AEW = ( 8.91 ± 0.04)%. Another analysis concerned with the atmospheric muons propagation index is performed comparing the experimental zenith angular distribution and a simulated isotropic cosmic rays distribution.
