ALX Resources Corp. Begins Surface Exploration at the Electra Nickel Project, Ontario

ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has commenced a surface prospecting and geological mapping program at its 100%-owned Electra Nickel Project ("Electra", or the "Project") located within the Thunder Bay South Mining District of Ontario, Canada. Electra is prospective for nickel, copper, cobalt ("Ni-Cu-Co"), platinum group elements ("PGEs") and gold.

In May 2021, ALX completed an airborne electromagnetic ("EM") survey totaling 335.6 line-kilometres at Electra using the versatile time-domain electromagnetic ("VTEMTM Plus") system. Subsequent processing of the VTEMTM data showed strong conductive features in the northern and central parts of Electra where historical grab samples have returned up to 0.95% nickel in a showing hosted within komatiitic rocks. The komatiites are notable for exhibiting spinifex textures associated with the nickel mineralization.

The 2021 prospecting and geological mapping is the first phase of surface exploration planned for Electra. Conductors detected in the airborne survey were modelled and mapped as to their "surface trace" (see map below). Most of the conductors identified by the 2021 VTEMTM survey were not detected by historical EM surveys, presumably due to a lack of depth penetration of previous systems. ALX's 2021 surface geological survey will assist in the selection of drill targets for a planned winter 2022 drill program.

About Electra

Electra is located approximately 35 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada in a fertile exploration district well-linked to highways, roads and trails, and lies near a powerline and the Canadian National Railroad. In March 2021, ALX staked additional claims and expanded Electra to 190 cell units totaling approximately 4,066 hectares (10,047 acres).

The Project is situated within the western extension of the Abitibi-Wawa-Shebandowan subprovince of the Superior structural province of the Canadian Shield. A major structural feature known as the Thunder Lake Fault striking northeast-southwest through Electra is traced through the property using airborne magnetic geophysics, and is interpreted as a lithospheric scale fault. This type of deep-seated structure is a requisite for the emplacement of mineralization from a magmatic source. The presence of komatiitic ultramafic rocks with spinifex textures, with up to approximately 1% nickel from surface samples is reminiscent of the mineralization styles found in the Kambalda District of Australia, and the Raglan district of Quebec. A review by ALX of public domain gravity data shows a strong gravity high anomaly underlying Electra that extends for approximately 35 kilometres northwest to the past-producing Shebandowan Nickel Mine. The Shebandowan Nickel Mine was operated by Inco Ltd. from 1972 until 1998, and produced 9.29 million tons grading 1.75% nickel, 0.88% copper, 0.063% cobalt and 1.85 grams/tonne PGEs.1

Historical exploration at Electra since the 1960s consisted of prospecting, soil sampling, trenching, limited geophysical surveys and drilling, intermittently searching for either nickel and/or gold mineralization. A 1995 drilling program by Winslow Gold Corp. intersected multiple zones of Ni-Cu-Co and zinc mineralization, including 16.6 metres of 0.15% nickel. At the Kwiatkowski Zone showing, ground prospecting located komatiitic rocks that returned values of up to 9,482 parts per million ("ppm") nickel. Follow-up trenching and channel sampling of the komatiites by Linear Metals Corporation in 2008 returned a maximum value of 6,675 ppm (0.68%) nickel over 3.7 metres.

VIDEO — Ross Beaty: Gold Fundamentals Terrific, Set to Blow Through Previous High

VIDEO — Ross Beaty: Gold Fundamentals Terrific, Set to Blow Through Previous High

After gold's flat performance in 2022, well-known mining sector entrepreneur Ross Beaty has a better outlook for 2023.

"Quite frankly, I think there's so much momentum right now — I'm very confident gold's going to blow through its previous high and sail into new territory, probably this year," he said at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC).

In Beaty's view, it was the US dollar's strength that killed gold's momentum last year. But even he had trouble reconciling the yellow metal's lack of momentum with the sheer number of seemingly positive price drivers.

VIDEO — Nick Santiago: Gold Can Still Pull Back to US$1,500 Before All-time High

The gold price has been on the rise for the last few months, but Nick Santiago, CEO and chief market strategist at InTheMoneyStocks.com, still believes a big pullback to the US$1,500 per ounce level is possible.

"I'm not bearish gold at the moment, but if I do get a sell signal, I think the next leg down takes you to that US$1,500 level, which would be the ultimate buy area," he explained to the Investing News Network. "I think that's going to be your chance to really get into gold for the long term. And then I do think gold ultimately breaks out to a new all-time high."

In terms of exactly how high gold could go in 2023, Santiago said he doesn't expect US$5,000 or US$10,000 like some market watchers are projecting. However, he does see the high US$2,000s, or possibly even US$3,000, as possible.

VIDEO — EB Tucker: Gold, Silver Price Levels to Watch, 2023 Investing Strategies

With the new year ahead, "Why Gold? Why Now?" author EB Tucker shared his thoughts on gold and silver, saying that US$2,000 per ounce and US$30 per ounce respectively are important levels for investors to watch.

"US$2,000's got to be a 2023 story," he told the Investing News Network when asked if gold could reach that key price this year. "The way it looks right now, you're US$60 away. I think it could happen fast."

Pointing to gold's rise of about US$300 since early November, Tucker said that the futures market sets the spot price, and activity in that arena has stopped weighing on the yellow metal over the last several months.
