ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of David Quirt as a technical advisor to the Company specializing in uranium exploration.
Mr. Quirt is a consulting geoscientist residing in Saskatchewan with 45 years of geological, mineral exploration, and Research and Development ("R&D") experience, both in the consulting sector and within the mineral exploration industry. His applied science work has been primarily in economic geology (uranium, diamonds, gold, base metals, Rare Earth Elements), uranium deposit metallogenesis, geochemistry, and host-rock alteration mineralogy. Throughout his career, David has been a highly-sought speaker at numerous scientific conferences and corporate presentations, and has authored and co-authored technical reports, journal papers and conference-extended abstracts that have resulted from these works.
Mr. Quirt received his B.A.Sc. degree in Geological Engineering (Mineral Exploration) from the University of Toronto in 1976, received his M.A.Sc. from the University of Windsor in 1978 and later undertook Ph.D. studies at Carleton University. After several years working as a field geologist, David joined the world-renowned Saskatchewan Research Council in 1981 where he was appointed Senior Research Scientist from 1991 to 2006. From 2006 to 2018, David was employed by AREVA Resources Canada Inc. in Saskatoon, SK ("AREVA", now Orano Canada) as Senior Geoscientist and was responsible for providing geoscience direction to its mineral exploration activities and in training AREVA's exploration staff throughout Canada. Until his retirement from AREVA in 2018, Mr. Quirt was involved with many of its exploration R&D technical and scientific activities, as well as R&D activities within their Projects and Operations division and at AREVA's head office in France.
Currently, David acts as Adjunct Professor at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Dept. of Earth Sciences, where he advises and supervises M.Sc. students on thesis work, and on their Ph.D advisory committee for thesis advice. David remains involved in the preparation and submission of papers to peer-reviewed journals, and volunteers as a Director with the Mineral Deposits Division of the Geological Association of Canada.

Forward-looking statements in this news release include: the Company's exploration projects are prospective for uranium and other minerals. It is important to note that the Company's actual business outcomes and exploration results could differ materially from those in such forward-looking statements. Risks and uncertainties include that ALX may not be able to fully finance exploration at its exploration projects, including drilling; initial findings at its projects may prove to be unworthy of further expenditure; commodity prices may not support exploration expenditures at its projects; and economic, competitive, governmental, societal, public health, environmental and technological factors may affect the Company's operations, markets, products and share price.
