Vancouver, March 29, 2022 – ALX Resources Corp. (“ALX” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AL; FSE: 6LLN; OTC: ALXEF) is pleased to announce that a diamond drilling program is underway at its Electra Nickel Project located 35 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.
2022 Exploration Program
On March 10, 2022 ALX received an exploration permit from the Ontario Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines for a diamond drilling program consisting of eight holes totaling approximately 1,750 metres, good until March 2025. The duration of the 2022 winter drilling program is weather dependent; however, the network of established forestry roads within Electra provides good access to the drill sites. Certain of the drill sites may be accessible for drilling in the spring or summer of 2022.

Electra is located near Thunder Bay, Ontario, in a fertile exploration district well-linked to highways, roads and trails, and lies near a powerline and the Canadian National Railroad. The Project consists of 190 cell units totaling approximately 4,066 hectares (10,047 acres) and is prospective for nickel-copper-cobalt, platinum group elements, and gold. ALX has the option to earn a 100% interest in Electra after fulfilling payment obligations of cash and common shares, and exploration expenditures (see ALX news release dated December 31, 2020).
In the fall of 2021, ALX developed new drill targets at Electra from the integration of the results of a 2021 VTEMTM airborne survey with a follow-up prospecting and geological mapping program. Geophysical programs consisting of downhole and ground electromagnetic surveys remain in application. The Company is pleased with the successful engagement that occurred with local First Nations and Metis communities during the permitting process and looks forward to a good working relationship with stakeholders in the Project area.
