Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 19, 2021) - ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") announced today that the Company has both staked and purchased additional claims at its 100% owned Lazy Edward Bay Uranium Project ("Lazy Edward Bay"), and has negotiated a three-year extension of time with an underlying vendor for two claims within its 100%-owned Newnham Lake Uranium Project ("Newnham Lake"). Each of the projects are located in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.
Lazy Edward Bay Acquisitions
ALX has executed a purchase agreement (the "Purchase") with Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. ("Eagle Plains") for a 100% interest in nine (9) claims totaling 2,409.75 hectares (5,954.5 acres) as a complement to the Company's existing land package at Lazy Edward Bay. The combination of the Purchase with six (6) additional claims staked by ALX in mid-September 2021 will bring the total area of Lazy Edward Bay to 10,984.33 hectares (27,142.28 acres). As consideration for the Purchase, Eagle Plains has agreed to receive 600,000 common shares of ALX and will retain a 2.0% net smelter returns royalty ("NSR"), of which ALX has the right to purchase 1.0% (one-half) of the NSR for $1.0 million.
Newnham Lake Option Agreement Extension
ALX has negotiated a three-year extension of time (the "Extension") with an underlying arms-length vendor for two claims totaling 1,518.6 hectares (the "Claims") within Newnham Lake. Under the terms of an option agreement dated August 21, 2014, and a previous extension agreement dated August 19, 2019, ALX was obligated to spend $1.5 million in exploration expenditures on the Claims by August 28, 2022. All other monetary terms of the option agreement (cash and shares payable to the vendor) have been satisfied by ALX. In consideration for a three-year extension to August 28, 2025 for ALX to complete the exploration expenditures, ALX has agreed to issue 300,000 common shares of the Company to the vendor.
