ALX Resources Corp. Options Vixen Gold Project to First Mining Gold Corp.

ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") pleased to announce that it has entered into an earn-in option agreement with First Mining Gold Corp. (TSX: FF) ("First Mining") on the Company's 100%-owned Vixen Gold Project ("Vixen"). Vixen consists of three sub-projects totaling 10,614 hectares (26,227 acres), Vixen North, Vixen South and Vixen West, located approximately 60 kilometres (37 miles) east of Red Lake, Ontario and near First Mining's Springpole Gold Project ("Springpole"). ALX first acquired and explored Vixen in 2019, and added additional claims acquisitions in 2021.

Details of the Option Agreement

First Mining will have the option to earn an initial 70% interest in Vixen by making cash payments totaling $550,000, the issuance of First Mining common shares totaling $400,000 to ALX, and by incurring at least $500,000 of expenditures at Vixen during the first three years of the earn-in term. Upon completing the first stage of the earn-in, First Mining will hold, through its wholly-owned subsidiary company Gold Canyon Resources Inc. ("Gold Canyon"), a 70% interest in Vixen and will have an additional two-year period to acquire the remaining 30% interest in Vixen by electing to make a $500,000 cash payment to ALX and by the issuance of First Mining common shares to ALX totaling $500,000. In the event that First Mining elects not to complete the second stage of the earn-in, ALX and Gold Canyon will enter into a 70%-30% joint venture agreement with respect to Vixen.

"ALX is pleased that its exploration efforts at Vixen have attracted a well-financed gold developer with a plan to search for new deposits in the Birch-Uchi greenstone belt," said Warren Stanyer, CEO and Chairman of ALX. "First Mining's multi-million ounce Springpole gold deposit is a focal point for the region with well-established camp facilities already in place, which is a huge logistical advantage for the advancement of Vixen."

The Birch-Uchi greenstone belt is one of the most under-explored and highly prospective gold belts in Canada with district-scale potential. The region hosts several past-producing mines, including the Argosy and Sol d'Or gold mines, with demonstrated historical high-grade gold mining and exploration. First Mining reports that it plans to undertake comprehensive regional exploration over the next twelve months and will be incorporating Vixen into the program. First Mining is focused on advancing and permitting its flagship Springpole project, which hosts the largest known gold deposit in the district and will be a critical strategic asset if more gold resources are found in the region.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Maintains Gains, Uranium Mania Still to Come

As the third week of the new year wraps up, gold's momentum remains strong. After breaking the US$1,900 per ounce mark last week, the yellow metal has kept above that level, ending Friday (January 20) around US$1,925.

December's producer price index (PPI) data was in the headlines this week, with a decline of 0.5 percent month-on-month and a year-on-year increase of 6.2 percent. The 0.5 percent fall was the largest since the start of the COVID-19.

The PPI looks at final demand prices across a wide variety of categories and is meant to measure inflation at the wholesale level. It's different from the consumer price index, which measures changes in the prices consumers pay for goods and services.

VIDEO — Jeffrey Christian: Gold, Silver Gaining Traction, 2023 Will be Year of Transition

Investors who backed away from precious metals in 2022 may be ready to re-enter the sector this year.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Jeffrey Christian, managing partner at CPM Group, said in the first few of weeks of the new year he's already seen better interest from institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals.

"If I'm right, what we'll see is a lot more rational investors saying, 'Gold and silver make sense in a diversified portfolio. I understand their loose relationship with interest rates, I understand their loose relationship with stocks and inflation and other factors — but I also understand that if I have gold and silver in my portfolio, I have a less volatile net wealth,'" he said.

Donlin Gold Announces Final Assay Results for 2022 Drill Program

Donlin Gold LLC ("Donlin Gold"), owned 50:50 by Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick") (TSX: ABX) (NYSE: GOLD) and NOVAGOLD RESOURCES INC. ("NOVAGOLD") (TSX, NYSE American: NG), is pleased to report the release of the final set of assay results from the 2022 drill program. The assay results for the final 44 drill holes and full 2022 drill program are reported in Table 2 in the Appendix.

The comprehensive 141-hole, 42,331-meter (m) drill program was safely and successfully completed ahead of schedule, under budget and included multiple high-grade gold intercepts reported from the latest set of assays. These include DC22-2130 that intersected 17.20 m grading 11.11 g/t gold, with a sub-interval of 4.25 m grading 36.91 g/t gold.

The results from the 2022 drill program reconcile favorably with the resource model as well as further support the global resource estimate and recent modelling concepts.

Donlin Gold continued to work in partnership with Alaska Native landowners Calista Corporation ("Calista") and The Kuskokwim Corporation (TKC) in stakeholder and government engagement in the Yukon-Kuskokwim (Y-K) region, Alaska, and Washington, D.C.

Environmental and social investment focused on the Y-K region included support for important health and safety initiatives in remote communities, cultural preservation efforts, and educational programming in collaboration with school districts and other organizations.

Donlin Gold continued to advance state permitting efforts, including the renewal of air and water permits in 2022.

With an increased appreciation of the geology, the experienced team will continue to focus on updating the resource model and completing trade-off studies — all of which are moving the Donlin Gold project up the value chain and leading toward an updated feasibility study decision.
