ALX Resources Corp. (“ALX” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AL; FSE: 6LLN; OTC: ALXEF) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the McKenzie Lake Uranium Project (“McKenzie Lake”, or the “Project”) in northern Saskatchewan, Canada. McKenzie Lake consists of four mineral claims purchased from an arm’s length vendor group, and a fifth mineral claim staked by the Company, giving the Project a total area of 6,916 hectares (17,089 acres). McKenzie Lake is located near the eastern margin of the Athabasca Basin approximately 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) north of the Company’s newly acquired Javelin Uranium Project, and about 55 kilometres (34 miles) southeast of the McArthur River Uranium Mine.
About McKenzie Lake
McKenzie Lake is located outside of the eastern margin of the Athabasca Basin within the central parts of the Wollaston Domain basement rocks, which host prolific uranium mines such as Key Lake, McArthur River, Cigar Lake and Rabbit Lake, amongst others. Two recent discoveries of note have been made in the McKenzie Lake-Javelin area, immediately to the southwest of the McKenzie Lake claims. The first is a discovery by 92 Energy Ltd. at their Gemini Project, where strongly anomalous basement-hosted uranium mineralization was intersected in drill hole GEM-004. More recently, and in close proximity to the discovery of 92 Energy Ltd., Baseload Energy Corp. reported the intersection of a broad zone of anomalous radioactivity in their 2021 drill hole HK21-07.
ALX has staked several other claims in the McKenzie Lake-Javelin area, which will be announced once mineral tenure is formally granted by the Government of Saskatchewan.
Details of the Transaction
ALX has agreed to pay a vendor group (the “Vendors”) $7,500 cash and 250,000 common shares of ALX for a 100% interest in four of the McKenzie Lake claims (the “Purchased Claims”) totaling 2,458.6 hectares. ALX staked a fifth claim totaling 4,457.6 hectares, which brings the total Project area to 6,916 hectares (17,089 acres). The Vendor will retain a 2.0% net smelter returns royalty, 1.0% of which can be purchased by ALX at any time for $1.0 million. The acquisition of the Purchased Claims is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Forward-looking statements in this news release include: the McKenzie Lake Uranium Project (“McKenzie Lake”) is prospective for uranium mineralization; the Company’s plans to undertake exploration activities at McKenzie Lake, and expend funds on McKenzie Lake. 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 McKenzie Lake, including drilling; our initial findings at McKenzie Lake may prove to be unworthy of further expenditure; commodity prices may not support exploration expenditures at McKenzie Lake; and economic, competitive, governmental, societal, public health, environmental and technological factors may affect the Company’s operations, markets, products and share price.
