Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 23, 2024) - ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into an amending agreement (the "Amendment") with Denison Mines Corp. ("Denison") whereby ALX may increase its ownership interest in the Hook-Carter Uranium property ("Hook-Carter", or the "Project") from 20% to 25% ownership by funding the next $3.0 million of exploration at the Project within the next 30 months. Hook-Carter is a highly-prospective and large exploration property with significant coverage along the prospective Patterson Lake, Carter, and Derksen exploration corridors — notably covering approximately 13 kilometres of the Patterson Lake Corridor along strike of the Arrow uranium deposit owned by NexGen Energy Ltd. ("NexGen"), and the Triple R uranium deposit owned by Fission Uranium Corp. ("Fission").

Background to the ALX-Denison Hook-Carter Agreement

On October 16, 2016, ALX and Denison entered into a purchase agreement (the "Original Agreement"), whereby ALX sold an 80% interest in the Project in exchange for 7.5 million shares of Denison. ALX retained a 20% interest in Hook-Carter, and Denison agreed to fund ALX's share of the first $12.0 million of expenditures. On November 15, 2019, ALX and Denison executed a written acknowledgement with respect to the deemed formation of a joint venture between them upon Denison's completion of a requirement to solely fund a minimum of $3.0 million of project expenditures within an initial 36-month funding period. Since 2016, Denison's exploration expenditures at Hook-Carter total $7.05 million, including the completion of surface and airborne geophysical programs, as well as nearly 12,000 metres of diamond drilling.

"ALX is very pleased to work with Denison to develop new drill targets at Hook-Carter," said Warren Stanyer, CEO and Chairman of ALX. "The Patterson Lake Corridor has seen the discovery of hundreds of millions of pounds of uranium in the past decade, making it one of the world's most fertile regions for uranium exploration. Two new uranium discoveries have been reported in 2024 to the south of our property by NexGen and by the Purepoint Uranium-Cameco Corporation-Orano Canada joint venture, which makes a renewed exploration effort at Hook-Carter even more compelling. The Amendment creates a pathway to accelerate exploration activity on this highly-prospective project for mutual benefit of the partners following a period of limited activity."

Highlights of the Hook-Carter Joint Venture Amendment Agreement

  • ALX can earn an additional 5.0% interest in Hook-Carter by funding $3.0 million of exploration at Hook-Carter within a 30-month period from May 21, 2024, (the "ALXFunding Period"), which would change the joint venture participating interests to 75% Denison — 25% ALX;
  • ALX is obligated to fund a minimum of $500,000 prior to March 31, 2025, and shall reasonably demonstrate, prior to June 30, 2025, that it has secured a further $750,000 committed to exploration expenditures at Hook-Carter;
  • All exploration expenditures incurred during the ALX Funding Period shall require approval by both Denison and ALX, each in its respective sole discretion and with each party acting reasonably;
  • Denison will not be obligated to incur any further exploration expenditures at the Project until the successful completion of the ALX Funding Period, after which each of ALX and Denison would be responsible for their respective financial contributions on a pro-rata basis under the joint venture terms contained in the Original Agreement. ALX and Denison have agreed to promptly and in good faith negotiate and enter into one or more agreements to supersede the Original Agreement and the Amending Agreement in order to govern the affairs of the joint venture following the completion of the ALX Funding Period;
  • Should ALX spend less than $3.0 million during the term of the ALX Funding Period, the participating interests of Denison and ALX in the joint venture would remain unchanged from the current levels of 80% Denison — 20% ALX.

About Hook-Carter

Hook-Carter consists of eleven claims covering 25,115 hectares and is located in the southwest corner of the Athabasca Basin, approximately 147 kilometres northeast of La Loche, Saskatchewan. The Project has excellent potential to host economic uranium deposits. Hook-Carter is interpreted to host the northeastern strike extension of the Patterson Lake Corridor ("PLC"), which hosts NexGen's Arrow uranium deposit, Fission's Triple R uranium deposit, and Purepoint Uranium Group's ("Purepoint") Spitfire, Hornet and Dragon zones in a joint venture with Cameco Corporation and Orano Canada. The Project also overlies the interpreted strike extension of the Carter and Derksen corridors - each are highly-prospective, under-explored corridors in which significant uranium mineralization may exist (see Figure 1 below).

In 2023, Denison carried out a ZTEM™ deep-penetrating airborne electromagnetic survey at Hook-Carter, which is known to be an effective exploration method for detecting geophysical conductors that may be associated with unconformity uranium mineralization. The 2023 ZTEM™ survey successfully outlined historical conductors at Hook-Carter and resolved new conductors in deeper terrain that were not identified by previous geophysical surveys.

Hook-Carter Exploration 2017-2019

Denison conducted ground geophysical surveys and completed 15 diamond drill holes totaling 11,771.7 metres (an additional 1,992 metres were drilled in seven abandoned holes) in its initial exploration programs at Hook-Carter from 2017 to 2019. Favorable structure and alteration were encountered in the majority of the completed drill holes and geochemical results showed elevated concentrations of traditional uranium pathfinder elements in certain drill holes, as well as sudoite (a magnesium-chlorite mineral) and dravite (a boron mineral), which are both clay minerals detected from spectral analysis, which may suggest the presence of a potential mineralizing system on Hook-Carter. These drilling programs provided reconnaissance level drill hole coverage along the PLC at an approximate 1,200-metre spacing within Denison's 2017 grid, which forms an important initial repository of drilling data and, when integrated with available geophysical data, is anticipated to be used to prioritize target horizons in the planning of future exploration programs.

Outside of the established Denison grid in the south-central part of Hook-Carter (see Figure 1), there remains high potential along the PLC to the northeast. Geophysical surveys (ground EM and DC-IP resistivity) are recommended over the northeastern extent of the PLC, as resolved by the 2023 ZTEM survey, prior to drill hole testing.

The Carter and Derkson corridors striking through Hook-Carter also have the potential to host significant uranium deposits. The Derkson Corridor has an advantage in that the depth to the unconformity is shallower, ranging from approximately 330 to 476 metres, and hosts a mineralized drill hole on Purepoint's claim along strike to the southwest (1978 hole DER-4: 0.24% U3O8 and 1.35% nickel over 2.5 metres). In April 2024, Purepoint reported a new uranium discovery known as "Lightning" in the Carter Corridor with a drill intersection of 0.9 metres grading 0.29% U3O8. The Carter Corridor has not yet been drill-tested by the Denison-ALX joint venture at Hook-Carter. Geophysical surveys (ground EM and DC-IP resistivity) over these parallel corridors are also recommended prior to drill testing.
