Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 23, 2024) - ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the receipt of results from a Soil Gas Hydrocarbon ("SGH") geochemistry survey carried out on its 100%-owned Gibbons Creek Uranium Project ("Gibbons Creek", or the "Project") located in the northern Athabasca Basin near the town of Stony Rapids, SK. The SGH survey was designed to collect detailed geochemical signatures over fault structures and surface expressions of uranium where the Company previously intersected basement-hosted uranium mineralization grading 0.13% U3O8 over 0.23 metres from 107.67 to 107.90 metres in drill hole GC15-03, and over a strong radon anomaly that was detected on surface by a predecessor company in 2013.

2023 SGH Geochemical Survey

SGH is an analytical method developed by Activation Laboratories Ltd. ("Actlabs") of Ancaster, Ontario, Canada that is designed to detect subtle geochemical anomalies emanating from a buried source. In November 2023, ALX collected 278 SGH soil samples over an approximate 3.4 square kilometres area within the 2023 Gibbons Creek ground magnetic survey grid to assist in developing new drill targets in previously untested areas. The 2023 SGH survey was successful in identifying a strong uranium anomaly in a structurally complex area of the Project (see Figure 1 below).

The 2023 SGH uranium anomaly covers the area of ALX's 2015 mineralized drill hole GC15-03 and a second mineralized hole (GC-15) drilled in 1979 by Eldorado Nuclear Limited ("Eldorado", a predecessor company of Cameco Corporation), which intersected 0.152% U3O8 over 0.13 metres from 134.11 to 134.24 metres1. The outline of the uranium anomaly as delineated by Actlabs is depicted as a roughly-oval shape measuring approximately 500 metres wide by 1,000 metres long, with the majority of its surface area untested by historical drill holes. In combination with the fault structures defined by ALX's "walking mag" survey in late 2023, the SGH survey results have provided compelling evidence for new drill targets at Gibbons Creek.

About Gibbons Creek

Gibbons Creek consists of seven mineral claims comprising 13,864 hectares (34,259 acres) located along the northern margin of the Athabasca Basin. The Project is located in a region hosting numerous historical uranium occurrences. ALX holds an exploration permit for Gibbons Creek, which allows for up to 20 diamond drill holes totaling approximately 5,000 metres, along with ground-based geophysics, prospecting, and geochemical sampling. Access to Gibbons Creek is via roads and trails that lead from the community of Stony Rapids, SK, which is connected to all-weather Highway 905, thereby creating flexibility for either summer or winter exploration programs. Stony Rapids is an excellent base for exploration activities and can provide accommodations, fuel, and field supplies, and hosts a year-round airport with regularly scheduled flights to and from Saskatoon, SK.

Statement of Qualified Person

Geochemical analyses on samples from ALX's 2015 drill hole described in this news release were carried out by SRC Analytical Laboratories in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan using Inductively-Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry ("ICP") and Inductively-Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry ("ICP-MS") methods. Eldorado's 1979 geochemical analyses were carried out by accredited laboratories of that exploration era, which are believed to be reliable.

The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Robert Campbell, P.Geo., who is a Qualified Person in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101.

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 on our exploration projects, including drilling; our initial findings at our exploration projects may prove to be unworthy of further expenditures; commodity prices may not support further exploration expenditures; exploration programs may be delayed or changed due to any delays experienced in consultation and engagement activities with First Nations and Metis communities, and local landowners in the region, and the results of such consultations; and economic, competitive, governmental, societal, public health, weather, environmental and technological factors may affect the Company's operations, markets, products and share price. Even if we explore and develop our projects, and even if uranium, lithium, nickel, copper, gold or other metals or minerals are discovered in quantity, ALX's projects may not be commercially viable.
