ALX Uranium Corp. Completes Ground Radon Survey at Lazy Edward Bay Property, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan
Vancouver, April 7 2016 – ALX Uranium Corp. (“ALX” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AL; FSE: 6LLN; OTCQX: ALXEF) is pleased to announce that a follow up radon-in-water sampling program has been completed at its Lazy Edward Bay Property located at the southern margin of the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.
The Lazy Edward Bay Property (the “Property”) encompasses 18,916 ha (46,741 acres) and is about 55 kilometres west of the Key Lake Mill and historic uranium mine.The Property covers several shallow exploration targets.
Exploration on the Property at the Bay Trend consisted of 143 radon-in-water (RIW) samples collected by RadonEx Ltd. of St-Lazare, Quebec whose Electret Ionization Chamber (EIC) technology has been successful in drill targeting at the Triple R deposit within the Patterson Lake South camp.
The survey was designed to be an extension of the 2014 radon-in-soil program along the conductive corridor of the Bay Trend carried out on land to the southwest.The 2016 reconnaissance-scale survey covered a 1,400 by 450 metre area of Lazy Edward Bay.Grid lines were spaced 200 metres apart with stations spaced 25 metres apart.
The survey resulted in eight highly anomalous one-point samples above 100 picoCuries per litre (pCi/L) including four strong anomalies that are above 200 pCi/L.The anomalous samples are located approximately 200 metres northeast of historical drill hole LE‑50, which returned anomalous uranium in the basement rocks (reported at 908 ppm U3O8).Many of the anomalous radon samples appear to lie along a northeast-striking linear trend in the central portion of the grid which overlies historical conductors found by previous explorers.
“Within the Athabasca Basin, historical results are used to guide exploration that could ultimately produce a new discovery,” stated Jon Armes, President of ALX Uranium Corp. “At Lazy Edward Bay, given the proximity of the highly anomalous radon samples to historical drill hole LE-50; which was never followed up with drilling along strike, the results of this radon survey demonstrate the significant exploration potential at Lazy Edward Bay.”

About the Lazy Edward Bay Property
The Lazy Edward Bay Property consists of 21 mineral claims totaling 18,916 ha (46,741 acres) at the southern margin of the Athabasca Basin and is about 55 kilometres west of the Key Lake Mill and historic mine.The Property is 100% owned by ALX Uranium Corp.The Property covers several shallow exploration targets.A highlight of the historic work at the Bay Trend is the results of a drilling program conducted by Uranerz Exploration and Mining Limited in 1982. Historic drill hole LE-50 was located approximately one kilometre south of the Athabasca Basin.The hole intersected basement rocks comprised of moderately chloritized and sericitized, and weakly hematized migmatitic, graphitic pelites which returned 908 ppm U3O8 over 0.3 metres along with anomalous boron, nickel and other pathfinder metals (Saskatchewan Assessment Report: 74G07-0042).
A 2005 airborne Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM) survey conducted by JNR Resources Inc. confirmed the historic conductors, and a follow-up 2007 ground Fixed Loop Transient Electromagnetic (FLTEM) survey refined the conductor location in some areas.The FLTEM targets have yet to be drill tested.The 2014 and 2015 geochemical and radon surveys have bolstered the geophysical targets and are now considered to be high-priority drill-ready targets.
