Alexandria Minerals To Partner With Probe Metals on Eastern Portion of Cadillac Break Properties

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 12/01/16 -- Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE: AZX)(FRANKFURT: A9D)(OTC PINK: ALXDF) ("AZX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding Option and Joint Venture Agreement with Probe Metals Inc. ("Probe") for mineral claims comprising the eastern portion of its 35 kilometer-long Cadillac Break Property Package in Val d'Or, Quebec.

Pursuant to the Agreement, Probe can earn up to 70% interest of the eastern 1/3 of Alexandria's Cadillac Break Property Group (the "Property") by expending up to $7.0 million on exploration, and completing a pre-feasibility study, over a period of 6 years. This transaction will allow Alexandria to maintain its exploration focus on the western part of its property package.

The Agreement calls for Probe to exercise two options in order to earn its 70% interest:

First Option:


--  Probe will issue 300,000 common shares to Alexandria upon signing the
    agreements and approval by the TSX;
--  Probe may earn a 60% interest in the Property by spending an aggregate
    of $5,000,000 on exploration expenditures over 4 years;
--  Upon completion of the First Option, a joint venture will be formed with
    Probe holding a 60% interest and Alexandria holding a 40% interest.

Second Option:


--  Probe may earn an additional 10% (for a total of 70%) interest in the
    Property by issuing 200,000 common shares to Alexandria and, within the
    following 2 years, by completing a pre-feasibility study on a mineral
    resource totaling a minimum of 1 million ounces of gold and incurring an
    additional $2,000,000 in exploration expenditures;
--  Upon completion of the Second Option, Probe will acquire the aforesaid
    additional 10% interest in the Property and each party thereafter will
    be required to contribute to any further programs pro rata according to
    its joint venture interest.

Eric Owens, President and CEO of Alexandria Minerals, stated, "This deal will unlock considerable value for Alexandria's shareholders on the early-stage exploration claims. This collaboration most importantly allows us to focus on our extensive drilling program on the western part of our property package where to date we have discovered 1.8 million ounces of gold. We are looking forward to working with the Probe group, as they, like us, will conduct exploration activities according to the highest standards. Moreover, they are a strong, successful exploration partner, having discovered the large Borden gold deposit in Ontario."

Probe will be the operator throughout the Option and Joint Venture.

Alexandria is continuing its exploration program with focus on the Orenada and Triangle Too targets. While it is waiting for assay results from its recently completed 4,000 meter drill program at Orenada Zone 4 and Zone 2, planning and permitting is underway for a minimum 6,000 meter wintertime drill program. To-date the company has announced assay results from the first two holes of a 9 hole program at Orenada (see Press Release, November 10, 2016), and anticipates releasing further results in the coming weeks.
