ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired by staking the Hydra Lithium Project ("Hydra", or the "Project") in the James Bay region of northern Quebec, Canada. Hydra consists of 306 mineral claims in four sub-projects totalling 15,837 hectares (39,134 acres), located in a world-class lithium exploration district that hosts several significant lithium-cesium-tantalum ("LCT") type pegmatites. Hydra is 100%-owned by ALX with no applicable royalties and the newly-staked claims are in good standing until September 2025.

Highlights of ALX's Hydra Lithium Project

  • Hydra is underexplored for LCT pegmatites, with historical exploration within the James Bay region focused on gold and other critical metals;
  • A regional surficial geochemical review and analysis of the James Bay region was completed by KorrAI of Halifax, Nova Scotia. It identified several areas considered highly prospective for LCT pegmatites;
  • The James Bay Hydroelectric Project (total investment by Hydro-Québec is estimated at greater than CAD$16 billion since the late 1970s) created infrastructure for mineral exploration in the form of several all-weather roads, including the Trans-Taiga Road. A working airstrip is located central to Hydra.
  • ALX has access to a proprietary high-resolution airborne geophysical database acquired from historical diamond exploration in the James Bay region that could provide important information for the identification of regional trends with potential for hosting pegmatitic rocks;
  • Exploration success has been realized by several junior exploration companies in the James Bay region where ALX has staked the Hydra claims, most notably by Patriot Battery Metals Inc., which has reported highly-significant lithium drill intersections in 2022 from their flagship Corvette Lithium Property.

"Lithium exploration is a natural extension of our pursuit of energy metals in Canada," said Warren Stanyer, CEO and Chairman of ALX. "For a qualified Canadian exploration company, Quebec is one of the most attractive mining jurisdictions in the world. ALX has the opportunity to carry out site visits to Hydra in October 2022 and we are moving quickly to execute a prospecting program with the goal of locating lithium-bearing pegmatites at Hydra."

2022-2023 Exploration Plans

ALX is compiling geophysical and geochemical data from historical exploration and integrating remote imagery to identify prospective areas. A site visit to ground-truth the Company's interpreted geochemical targets for lithium anomalies is planned in October 2022. Additional work may include high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys together with follow-up geochemical surveys in 2023 across the highest-priority areas in order to locate lithium-bearing pegmatite dykes and sills and optimize potential drill targets.

Steppe Gold Announces Gold Prepayment Facility

 Steppe Gold Limited (TSX: STGO) (OTCQX: STPGF) (FSE: 2J9) ("Steppe Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Triple Flag International Ltd ("Triple Flag") for a short-term gold prepay facility (the "Triple Flag Gold Prepay Facility").

One of the consequences of the zero covid policy in China and the attendant China/Mongolia border closures has been a shortage of available US dollars with banks in Mongolia. Steppe Gold sales revenue is received in Mongolian Tugrik. While most of its operating costs are also paid in local currency, we require US dollars to acquire reagents and to fund deliveries to Triple Flag. The Triple Flag Gold Prepay Facility allows Steppe Gold to continue to meet all of its obligations during this temporary market disruption.
