Vixen Gold Project Transaction Update
ALX also announces that the transaction with First Mining Gold Corp. (“First Mining”) (TSX: FF) for the Vixen Gold Project (“Vixen”) announced on September 9, 2021 has closed (see ALX news release dated September 9, 2021). As prescribed by the terms of the option agreement dated September 7, 2021, the Company has received $250,000 in cash and 291,330 common shares of First Mining, which represent the first stage payments due to ALX under the terms of the Vixen option agreement.
First Mining has 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 option 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.
