Alexandria Minerals Identifies 9 New Drill Targets on Gold-Copper Trend With Downhole Geophysical Survey

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 10/19/16 -- Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D)(OTC PINK:ALXDF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of a geophysical survey conducted down past drill holes in which new drill targets have been identified on the Company's western Cadillac Break Property package in Val d'Or, Quebec.

The Borehole InfiniTEM® geophysical survey completed by Abitibi Geophysics of Val d'Or, Quebec, surveyed a total of 12 drill holes over a 1.8-kilometer distance. This particular survey measures off-hole electrical conductivity and consequently can infer the presence of a conductor - possibly gold-bearing and copper-bearing sulfides - at a specific direction and distance from the drill holes.

Key Findings


--  Identification of 9 strong new drill targets (geophysical conductors) on
    Zone 5, a 1.8-kilometer-long gold-copper zone 
--  Correlation between high gold-copper assays, copper and iron sulfides in
    drill core and geophysical electrical conductors 
--  The location of the conductors away from the drill holes with potential
    for new discovery both along and across strike 

The drill holes surveyed occur on Alexandria's Zone 5 which, together with the nearby Hogg Zone, is a gold-copper trend at least 2.5 kilometers long, parallel to the nearby Cadillac Break, just 4 km from Val d'Or, Quebec. Scattered past drilling has intersected strong gold and copper assays, such as 1.5 meters grading 45.9 g/t gold, 10.2 meters grading 8.4 g/t gold and 0.14% copper, 26.5 meters grading 1.00 g/t gold and 0.9% copper; 16.8 meters grading 2.40 g/t gold and 1.2% copper. Within the drill core, elevated concentrations of copper and iron sulfides, which are notable conductors, are correlated with strong gold and copper assays.

Eric Owens, President and CEO, said: "These strong results are the outcome of our ongoing, overall exploration activities, and will provide excellent drill targets. We are aiming to ramp up drilling on our Cadillac Break Property package in the coming months, and results such as these improve the possibility of further encouraging drill results."

The Zone 5/Hogg Zone area is located a few hundred meters north and east of Orenada Zone 4 and Zone 2, and where the Company is currently wrapping up a 4,000-meter drill program (See Press Release August 31, 2016). Orenada Zone 4 and Zone 2 contain low grade, disseminated Current Resources (see the Company's website for a summary of these resources), which hosts a recently-identified suite of south dipping high grade gold-quartz veins. Alexandria is in the early stages of remodeling the geology, with the goal of re-defining the size of the deposit and identifying the limits of the high grade gold-quartz veins.

Program design, management, and Quality Control/Quality Assurance are conducted by Alexandria's exploration group of which Phillippe Berthelot, P.Geo, is the Company's Qualified Person. Mr. Berthelot has reviewed the results in this press release. The QA/QC program is consistent with National Instrument ("NI") 43-101 and industry best practices and has been previously addressed in NI 43-101 reports found on the Company's website or on www.sedar.com.
