ALX Resources Corp. Provides Quebec Lithium Projects Exploration Update and Reports Acquisition by Staking of Python Lithium Showing

ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its recent lithium exploration activities in the James Bay Region of the Province of Quebec, Canada.

On January 31, 2023, the Company received a report from its geological contractor, Dahrouge Geological Consulting of Montreal, QC, on the results of a reconnaissance prospecting program completed in October 2022 at the Hydra Lithium Project ("Hydra", or the "Project"). Also in late January 2023, ALX staked a new sub-project known as the Python Project ("Python"). Python covers a historically sampled, lithium-bearing pegmatite showing located within a prospective geological trend of mafic gneiss, interpreted to be volcanic rocks within an unnamed greenstone belt.

Quebec Lithium Exploration Highlights

  • The primary objective of the 2022 Hydra field program was to sample and discover new areas of lithium-cesium-tantalum ("LCT") type pegmatites with potential for significant grades of lithium mineralization. Pegmatite outcrops were located during the helicopter-supported prospecting program and a total of 40 rock samples collected between October 17 and October 22, 2022, when work was halted due to worsening weather conditions.
  • Several of the samples yielded slightly anomalous lithium values and other pathfinder elements commonly associated with LCT-type pegmatite mineralization, such as cesium, tantalum, rubidium, and beryllium. In particular, rubidium concentrations ranging up to 189 parts per million ("ppm") were sampled on the Nike Property, and up to 232 ppm rubidium on the Volta Property.
  • A more extensive field program of closely-spaced traverses and systematic sampling is planned at Hydra for the spring/summer season of 2023.

  • In late 2022, KorrAI Technologies of Halifax, NS conducted an artificial intelligence algorithmic search of a large database of historical assessment reports, targeting indicators of lithium-bearing pegmatites in Quebec. This data search successfully identified a pegmatite containing a historical lithium sample grading 330 ppm lithium. ALX staked the reported lithium-bearing pegmatite with an additional 88 claims totaling 4,297 hectares (10,618 acres) in a new claim block known as Python. The new claims cover the lithium-pegmatite showing and an area of metamorphosed Archean greenstone interpreted to extend to the southwest of the lithium showing. As shown on the map below, the Python claims are located in an outlying underexplored area northeast of the initial Hydra claim blocks approximately 100 kilometres north of the Trans-Taiga Road.

2023 Exploration Plansat Hydra

Compilation of historical data related to Hydra and other areas in the region that are prospective for LCT pegmatites is ongoing. ALX is planning airborne and photogrammetric surveys to provide additional geophysical, topographic, and aerial visual information to aid in the location and mapping of pegmatite bodies. In the 2023 spring/summer field season, follow-up geological and geochemical surveys are planned across the highest-priority areas in order to delineate potentially lithium-bearing pegmatite dykes and sills and to optimize resultant drill targets.

3NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Whabouchi Lithium Mine and Shawnigan Electrochemical Plant, by Met-Chem et al, November 7, 2018

ALX believes that Hydra is underexplored for LCT pegmatites because of the high prospectivity of the region, as suggested by the highly-positive exploration reports from the Corvette Lithium Deposit and due to the fact that historical exploration carried out in the James Bay region was mainly focussed on gold and base metals. The James Bay Hydroelectric Project (total investment by Hydro-Québec is estimated at greater than CAD$16 billion since the early 1970s) has created infrastructure for mineral exploration in the form of several all-weather roads, including the Trans-Taiga Road. Serviceable airstrips are located in the vicinity providing aircraft support capability for Hydra.

NationaI Instrument 43-101 Disclosure

The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by John Charlton, P.Geo., a consultant to ALX, who is a Qualified Person in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101.

Geochemical analysis of the rock samples collected during the 2022 prospecting program was carried out by SGS Canada Inc. ("SGS"). SGS is an accredited laboratory conforming to the requirements of ISO/IEC17025 and utilized multi-element Inductively Coupled Plasma ("ICP") analysis.

Mineral resource information from lithium deposits in the James Bay region quoted in this news release was taken directly from publicly available disclosure. Management cautions that historical results were collected and reported by operators unrelated to ALX and have not been verified nor confirmed by its Qualified Person, but they create a scientific basis for ongoing work in the Hydra project area. Management further cautions that historical results or discoveries on adjacent or nearby mineral properties are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on ALX's mineral properties.

ALX Resources Corp. Intersects Additional Uranium Mineralization at the Gibbons Creek Uranium Project, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan

alx resources corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of the 2024 winter drilling program at its 100%-owned Gibbons Creek Uranium Project ("Gibbons Creek", or the "Project") located in the northern Athabasca Basin near the community of Stony Rapids, Saskatchewan. The 2024 drilling program was designed to test for continuity of uranium mineralization first discovered in 1979 by Eldorado Nuclear and by ALX in 2015. Five holes totaling 849.44 metres were completed. Four of the five holes intersected uranium mineralization at or near the unconformity, based upon hand-held scintillometer readings on drill core, downhole gamma probe results, and visual observation of uranium minerals by ALX's geological team. Mineralization found in the 2024 drilling was intersected in two areas located 500 metres apart within a target area that ALX defined in late 2023 by carrying out a high-resolution magnetic survey and a Soil Gas Hydrocarbon ("SGH") survey (see ALX news release dated January 23, 2024).

Fully charged green battery symbol with electric waves.

Battery Metals Investing in Australia (Updated 2024)

The energy sector is largely shifting away from carbon-based fuels and towards renewable alternatives, with the green battery boom being an especially salient example of this trend.

As the name suggests, battery metals are key components of electric vehicle (EV) batteries, and as this sector continues to grow these commodities are quickly becoming critical raw materials. What metals are in batteries? Investors have likely already heard about lithium and cobalt, the darlings of the EV industry, but other common battery metals include nickel, graphite, manganese and vanadium.

Among the battery metals Australia produces, lithium reigns supreme. In fact, the country is the world’s largest supplier of this popular metal. Cobalt, graphite and manganese are also part of the lithium-ion battery market, while vanadium can be used to create vanadium redox batteries.
