(businesspress24) - ALX Uranium Corp. Announces Commencement of Drilling Program at the Hook-Carter Uranium Project, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan

Vancouver, BC, Canada, February 13, 2018 - ALX Uranium Corp. (ALX or the Company) (TSXV: AL; FSE: 6LLN; OTC: ALXEF) is pleased to announce that a $2.2 million diamond drilling program has commenced at the Hook-Carter Uranium Project (Hook-Carter, or the Project) located in the southwestern Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, Canada. Approximately 10,000 metres of drilling is planned in up to 17 holes to test compelling targets generated from geophysical surveys completed in 2017.

Exploration at Hook-Carter is operated by Denison Mines Corp. (Denison) (TSX: DML, NYSE MKT: DNN). The Project is owned 80% by Denison and 20% by ALX, and is located along the prolific Patterson Lake Corridor - host to the Triple R uranium deposit (Fission Uranium Corp.), the Arrow uranium deposit, Harpoon, Bow and South Arrow uranium discoveries (NexGen Energy Ltd.), and the Spitfire, Hornet and Dragon uranium discoveries (a joint venture of Purepoint Uranium Group Inc., Cameco Corp., and AREVA Resources Canada Inc.). Denison has agreed to fund the first $12.0 million of expenditures at Hook-Carter (see ALX news releases dated October 13, 2016 and November 7, 2016).

ALX believes Hook-Carter is significantly underexplored, with only five historical drill holes located along the 15 kilometres of interpreted strike length of the Patterson Lake Corridor that lies within the Project.

Since 2012, over 300,000 metres of drilling has been carried out on the known uranium deposits and occurrences found along the Patterson Lake Corridor, said Sierd Eriks, President and Chief Geologist of ALX. In contrast, Hook-Carter has only been tested by about 4,000 metres of drilling in a handful of holes more than ten years ago, which makes this drilling program long overdue.

Technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Sierd Eriks, P.Geo., President and Chief Geologist of the Company, who is a Qualified Person, in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in National Instrument 43-101.
