ALX Resources (TSXV:AL,FWB:6LLN,OTC:ALXEF) is dedicated to providing shareholders with multiple opportunities for discovery by exploring a portfolio of prospective mineral properties, which include uranium, lithium, nickel–copper–cobalt and gold.

Using the latest technologies, ALX plans and executes well-designed exploration programs and holds over 240,000 hectares of prospective properties in Saskatchewan, Quebec and Ontario, Canada.

Having operations in stable Canadian jurisdictions strategically positions ALX Resources in key exploration areas with strong potential for economic base metals deposits, producing gold mines and the richest uranium deposits in the world. This includes the Firebird nickel (formerly Falcon Nickel) and Flying Vee nickel-copper-cobalt projects, and the Sceptre gold project, all located in Northern Saskatchewan.

ALX is planning a 2024 summer exploration program at its Hydra Lithium Project in the James Bay region of Quebec, a joint venture with Forrestania Resources Ltd., which includes a prospecting and geological mapping program to locate pegmatite bodies in the field as a follow-up to ALX’s 2023 exploration activities.

ALX also holds interests in several uranium exploration properties in Northern Saskatchewan, including the Gibbons Creek uranium project comprising eight claims covering 13,864 hectares. The company has completed its 2024 winter drilling program that consisted of five holes totaling 905.4 meters. Four of the five holes have uranium mineralization at or near the unconformity, based upon hand-held scintillometer readings on the drill core, downhole gamma probe results, and visual observation of uranium minerals. Analytical results are pending.

ALX has a 20 percent interest in the Hook-Carter Uranium Project in which Denison Mines (NYSE:DNN) owns 80 percent. Denison has funded approximately $7 million in exploration to date. The property is subject to certain royalties held by underlying vendors. The 2023 Hook-Carter airborne Z-Axis Tipper electromagnetic survey successfully outlined historical conductors present at Hook-Carter and resolved new conductors in deeper terrain that were not identified by previous geophysical surveys.

The company also completed a surface prospecting program in October 2023 at its 100 percent-owned McKenzie Lake uranium project located in the southeastern Athabasca Basin area of northern Saskatchewan.

Along with ALX’s rich portfolio of diverse assets in world-renowned jurisdictions, identifying undervalued and underexplored assets is the company’s strong suit. As early adopters of new methods of exploration, the company embodies innovation with its willingness to utilize new geochemical and geophysical technologies. This includes artificial intelligence recognition methods and other emerging science-focused exploration tools.

ALX has a world-class management team led by chairman and CEO Warren Stanyer who has more than 27 years of experience in the mineral exploration industry, focused mostly on uranium exploration in Saskatchewan.

Key Projects

Hydra Lithium Project

ALX Resources owns a 50 percent interest in the Hydra Lithium Project in the James Bay region of Quebec, Canada. The remaining 50 percent interest is owned by Forrestania Resources (ASX:FRS). The project comprises eight sub-projects totaling 29,262 hectares. Hydra’s sub-projects include Volta (4,751 hectares), Echo (5,566 hectares), Nike (2,462 hectares), Sprite (3,437 hectares), Cobra (4,249 hectares), Viper (1,280 hectares), Python East (3,218 hectares) and Python West (4,298 hectares), Hydra is located in a world-class lithium exploration district that hosts several significant lithium-cesium-tantalum (LCT) type pegmatites.

2024 Summer Exploration Program

Planning for 2024 summer exploration at the Hydra lithium project is underway which includes a prospecting and geological mapping program, designed to locate pegmatite bodies in the field as a follow-up to ALX’s 2023 exploration activities at Hydra which highlights the following:

Python West: 30 samples collected with sample #F435054 taken from a pegmatite boulder returned 278 parts per million (ppm) lithium, 575 ppm cesium and 865 ppm rubidium. Positive geochemical ratios were calculated and are interpreted as pathfinders for LCT pegmatites: K/Rb (17.1), K/Cs (26) and Nb/Ta (2.1);Python East: 15 samples collected and sample #F435156 taken from a pegmatite boulder returned 387 ppm lithium, 24.5 ppm cesium and 326 ppm rubidium;Sprite: 27 samples collected. Two samples collected from granitic and paragneiss outcrops samples returned lithium and rubidium values over 100 ppm;Volta: 21 samples collected. Biotite crystals were described in one outcrop sample that also showed orange luminescence under ultraviolet light that may suggest a fertile environment for LCT pegmatites. Follow-up in 2024 is planned.Echo: 1 sample collected. Prospecting in 2023 was impeded by fires, weather conditions and schedule constraints. Follow-up on first-priority targets detected by remote sensing is planned for 2024.Cobra: 10 samples collected. Follow-up on second-priority targets is planned for 2024.Nike: 2 samples were collected. Follow-up on second-priority targets is planned for 2024.Viper: No samples were collected. An airborne reconnaissance survey was carried out. Follow-up on second-priority targets is planned for 2024.

Gibbons Creek Uranium Project

ALX Resources completed a diamond drilling program in the winter of 2022 in the Northern Athabasca Basin, near Stony Rapids, Saskatchewan. The program comprised three holes, completed for a total of approximately 1,240 meters, atop two previously untested anomalies.

Drill hole GC22-01, along the southwestern portion of the Zinger Conductor, intersected high in the sandstone column, mineral alteration including pyrite, siderite, and bleaching, and low angle to core axis fracture zones that suggest a steep-dipping structure may project to the sub-Athabasca unconformity at an approximate downhole depth of 345 meters.

Drill hole GC22-02 tested the northeast section of the Zinger trend. It revealed discrete elevated gamma probe peaks that occur between 293.7 and 300.9 meters. Geochemical analysis of the samples collected over these horizons will help to determine the significance of these peaks.

ALX has completed its 2024 winter drilling program at Gibbons Creek which aimed to test for continuity of uranium mineralization first discovered in 1979 by Eldorado Nuclear and ALX in 2015. Five holes totaling 905.4 meters were completed with four of the five holes intersecting uranium mineralization at or near the unconformity. Mineralization found in the 2024 drilling was intersected in two areas located 500 meters apart within a target area that ALX defined in late 2023 through a high-resolution magnetic survey and a soil gas hydrocarbon survey.

Hook Carter Project

The Hook-Carter project consists of eleven claims covering 25,115 hectares in the southwest corner of the Athabasca Basin. The project has excellent potential to host economic uranium deposits. Hook-Carter is interpreted to host the northeastern strike extension of the Patterson Lake Corridor, which hosts Nexgen Energy’s Arrow uranium deposit, Fission Uranium’s Triple R uranium deposit and Purepoint Uranium’s Spitfire, Hornet and Dragon zones, which are in a joint venture with Cameco Corporation and Orano Canada. Hook-Carter also overlies the interpreted strike extension of the Carter and Derksen corridors, each highly prospective, under-explored corridor in which significant uranium mineralization may exist.

The 2023 ZTEM survey successfully outlined historical conductors at Hook-Carter and resolved new conductors in deeper terrain that were not identified by previous geophysical surveys.
