Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 14, 2021) – ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) (“ALX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of a geochemical survey at its 100%-owned Gibbons Creek Uranium Project (“Gibbons Creek”, or the “Project”). Gibbons Creek currently consists of seven mineral claims encompassing 13,864 hectares (34,259 acres), located along the northern margin of the Athabasca Basin immediately west of the community of Stony Rapids, Saskatchewan, in a region hosting multiple uranium occurrences.

2021-2022 Exploration at Gibbons Creek

In early October 2021, ALX commenced a Spatiotemporal Geochemical Hydrocarbons (“SGH”) soil geochemistry survey at Gibbons Creek. SGH is an analytical method developed by Actlabs of Ancaster, Ontario, Canada that is designed to detect subtle geochemical anomalies emanating from a buried source. Three hundred and twenty-one (321) samples were collected from a 4.4 kilometre-long grid over a strong, untested geophysical conductor detected from historical airborne electromagnetic surveys. Sample lines within the grid were spaced 200 metres apart and were narrowed to 100 metres over an interpreted cross-cutting fault structure. The results of the SGH survey are expected to provide valuable information for a permitted drilling program planned for the winter of 2022, following engagement with the local communities and First Nations in the Stony Rapids area.

About Gibbons Creek

The Project is complemented by the infrastructure provided at Stony Rapids, SK, including all-weather Highway 905, a commercial airport, equipment rentals and supplies, as well as readily available accommodation, thereby providing high efficiencies for local exploration. Work by ALX and its predecessor company Lakeland Resources Ltd. produced the following indicators of uranium mineralization:

  • Prospecting in 2013 confirmed the presence of high-grade uranium-bearing boulders ranging up to 4.28% U3O8;
  • Radon surveys in 2015 detected an anomaly approximately 1,200 metres by 500 metres in size with peak radon values ranging between 4.00 picocuries per square metre per second (“pCi/m2/sec”) and 10.77 pCi/m2/sec at ten locations, which are among the highest recorded radon values in the Athabasca Basin;
  • Historical drill hole GC15-03 intersected 0.13% U3O8 over 0.23 metres, immediately below the sub-Athabasca unconformity;
  • Spectroscopic analysis of core samples from ALX’s 2015 drilling detected clay alteration products such as illite and sudoite (a unique form of chlorite associated with uranium mineralization) in the sandstone at or near the unconformity, which suggests that hydrothermal alteration has occurred in the vicinity of the drill hole;
  • Geophysical conductors defined by a 2017 airborne ZTEM survey remain to be tested.

In February 2021, ALX received an exploration permit for Gibbons Creek, good to October 2022, which allows for a 5,000-metre drilling program in up to 20 holes along with ground-based geophysics, prospecting and geochemical sampling. Access to the Project is year-round, thereby creating a flexibility for either summer or winter exploration programs. Several geophysical conductors at the Project identified by airborne and ground geophysics have not yet been drill tested.

National Instrument 43-101 Disclosure

The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Jody Dahrouge, P.Geo., a Director of ALX, who is a Qualified Person in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101. Geochemical results for surface samples collected by ALX in 2020 were analyzed at the Saskatchewan Research Council in Saskatoon, SK by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). Gold, platinum and palladium were analyzed by fire assay techniques.

Historical geochemical results and geological descriptions quoted in this news release were taken directly from assessment work filings and summary reports published by the Government of Saskatchewan. Management cautions that historical results were collected and reported by past operators and have not been verified nor confirmed by its Qualified Person, but create a scientific basis for ongoing work in the Gibbons Creek area.

Freeman Gold Announces Phase 2 Lemhi Resource Expansion and Beauty Zone Drill Program

Canada NewsWire

Phase 2 – >4,000 m diamond drill program

  • >3,200 metres testing strike extensions, primarily to the east and west of the current resource
  • 400 metre drill hole to test depth extent of gold mineralization at Lemhi
  • 400 metres of exploration drill holes at the Beauty Zone

CANADIAN SECURITIES EXCHANGE: FMAN

VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 27, 2021 /CNW/ – Freeman Gold Corp. (CSE: FMAN) (OTCQB: FMANF) (FSE: 3WU) (“Freeman” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce its Phase 2 diamond drill program at the Lemhi Gold Deposit (“Lemhi“) and the new Beauty Zone (“Beauty Zone“). The proposed >4,000 m drill program focuses on adding near surface, oxide ounces to the recently reported maiden Mineral Resource Estimate on July 8, 2021. Drilling will also test the recently delineated Beauty Zone which lies approximately 600 metres west of Lemhi and host to a number of high-grade gold rock samples and coincident gold soil geochemistry.

“We are embarking on a second phase of diamond drilling focusing on ground (patented mining claims) that gives Freeman the highest probability of adding ounces to our resource base. The on-strike east and west extensions at Lemhi are key as these would provide new ounces within our current conceptual pit outline. As well, the Lemhi deposit has never been tested at depth beyond 286 metres where a number of holes were terminated in gold mineralization. Freeman plans to test mineralization at depth with at least one >400 m drill hole. We are also excited about testing the newly identified high grade Beauty Zone which returned 52 rock samples over 1 gram per tonne (“g/t”) gold (“Au“) and 28 over 10 g/t Au with coincident anomalous gold soil geochemistry,” remarked Paul Matysek, Executive Chairman.

Over 90% of the total drilling is anticipated to occur at Lemhi, while the remaining drilling will test the Beauty Zone. Of the 3,600 metres to be drilled at Lemhi, 3,025 metres are focused on resource expansion on strike down to a maximum depth of 300 metres below surface. These holes will follow up on drill holes from previous campaigns that remain open, such as FG20-24C which returned 0.4 g/t Au over 72 metres on section 429825N. One drill hole will test the depth potential at Lemhi down to 400 metres below surface; the hole will also infill in the shallower portions between drill holes FG20-17C (151m @ 2.5 g/t Au) and 35C (189m @ 0.54 g/t Au). A single infill hole is planned on section 429952N where a gap in the mineralization is present.
