Alix Negotiating To Expand Gold Property In NunavutALIX NEGOTIATING TO EXPAND GOLD PROPERTY IN NUNAVUT
May 26, 2010, VANCOUVER, B.C. - ALIX RESOURCES CORP. ("Alix" or the "Company") (AIX-TSX:V) (37N-FRANKFURT) announces it has entered into negotiations with Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated to acquire additional ground surrounding its Cache Property located in Nunavut. This property boasts several high grade historic intercepts including 31.2 g/t Au over 48.2 m, and 58.6 g/t Au over 4.0 m with coarse visible gold.
The Company is in discussions with Aurora Geosciences out of Whitehorse to put together a ground program and drilling budget for the upcoming season on the Cache property.
The Cache Property consists of 120 ha of early-stage Archean Lode-gold prospects located within the Ennadai-Rankin Greenstone Belt in the Kaminak-Quartzite Lake area, 150 km southwest of Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. Successful conclusion of the new agreement would see the property position expand to approximately 5,000 hectares.
The property is underlain by an E-W trending package of mafic to felsic volcanic rocks to the north, and a quartz-feldspar porphyritic intrusion to the south. Mafic volcanic rocks crop out in most northern part of the property. Twenty-one diamond drill holes (5875.5 m) were drilled on the Cache property during programs in 1988 (16 holes) and 1994 (5 holes). An additional twenty drill holes (3127.6 m) have been drilled nearby, but off property. Significant drill intersections include: 8.37 g/t Au over 8.55 m, 10.70 g/t Au over 3.85 m and 5.91 g/t Au over 5.13 m (1988 program); and 2.42 g/t Au over 12.4 m, 8.53 g/t Au over 10.8 m, 6.36 g/t Au over 30.4 m (1994 program). Based the 1988 drill program, Noble Peak Resources calculated a reserve of 362,873.9 t grading 9.6 g/t Au to a depth of 183 m over a strike length of 213 m. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources, the issuer is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.
